Google Chrome has a built-in Flash Player, and ever since the new update causes a sound glitch to happen. Before the update, it never occurred, yet it's the SAME file. Honest. Newgrounds has also noted other problems with the new Chrome update regarding Flash:
So... you might want to use a different browser until Google fixes this, unless they're too busy figuring out what the hell to do with G+ now.

EDIT: Issue seems to be fixed now. I did nothing.

NOTE: You must be logged in on Newgrounds to submit your own levels. Everything else will still work fine.

EDIT: Over 300 GapWorld levels! You sadists.
EDIT: Over 800 GapWorld levels! You monsters.
EDIT: Over 1,000 GapWorld levels! You humans.


Mind-bending, Space-rending, and Completely Innocent Creature's Life-ending.

In this negative-space puzzle game, you'll drag around holes, fall through walls, and bring myriads of miniature Monsters to madness.

Say you sadistically hunger for more levels, or you just detest the levels I've made. That's fine, you can play negative-space puzzles created by other Newgroundians! And you too, can make your own.

Use the Level Creator to design your very own puzzles, and share them with a cold uncaring world. More Monsters to torture, for the good of everyone else!

Think outside the box, fellow monsters.

A Fantastic Headscratcher of a Puzzle Game!

A fantastic game for spacial thinkers of all shapes and sizes! Great music, HILARIOUS sound effects, beautiful graphics, and a number of difficult puzzles by default which house a number of clever solutions! And if that's not enough, you the PLAYER can make your OWN puzzles to stump others with! This significantly boosts the replay value of what would otherwise be a one-playthrough game.

All and all, this game is a great way to test your sliding puzzle skills and kill a couple hours or more, depending on how serious you are about those Medals!

And now for the non-review portion (which means no point deductions!) of the review:
That noisy sound-dogpile glitch exists in Opera Browser 11, too! And I can identify where it pops up, but I certainly can't say what triggers it. I should also mention that this glitch happens REGARDLESS of it sound, music, or both are disabled at the time.

I've encountered the glitch in these locations:
- The Level Select screen after exiting a level and waiting a moment OR entering this screen after making a level.

As I have no idea how to program ANYTHING in Flash, I unfortunately have no proposed solutions. I do however get the idea that this was something that broke in a recent Flash update rather than a browser update, or even a browser/Flash miscommunication thingy. It sucks, but I don't blame Nutcasenightmare for it since they said it just started doing it for no apparent reason and presumably, they have NO idea how to fix it. D:

Nutcasenightmare responds:

Yeah, it could be a general Flash Player update problem.
But seeing as how loading any custom level triggers it, it could also be due to an update in the Newgrounds API?...

Anyway, thanks very much for your review!

This game was so damn cute. I don't have the patience right now to play all the way through but I will definitely come back to it. Very fun, original, the little creatures and their screams were simply adorable. Kudos to everyone invloved in making this game. This would be fun to play on the go on my phone...
Very nice game, it;s simple but complicated. Certainly one of the most fun puzzle games of this style I've played in a long time. Well done, I'll be coming back later to finish this (:

Like this puzzle game. Good looking and challenging....and yes I needed help on a few.

Quite fun indeed

I really enjoyed the puzzle mechanics in this game. I found myself learning at an appropriate rate seen by the fact that earlier puzzles became so much easier to 'star'. That to me shows an intelligent programming of puzzles.
The music could have been a bit more varied. I actually have to critique the choice of part of the main theme because it is *way* too close to the angry birds soundtrack.

Nice, simple concept with a lot of potential!

It's a nice, different concept: a rather simple basic idea, yet something that requires a bit of getting used to, and on the other hand has the potential of offering real mind-twisters. It's especially fun in a way when you have the pixels represent some well-known characters and in order to pass the map, you'll have to mess its/his/her appearance.

ps. This is the first NG game where I see user levels like that. So how do you add your level to newgrounds? What am I missing? All I saw in the editor was the export and import buttons.

To submit a level, you first have to play and beat your own level, to prove that it has a solution.
