This is a little game that grew from a practice of using hitTest, attachMovie, and so on, to a game that, in my opinion, will not be blammed or granted the honour of T*rd of the Week. It's about somebody who has been very lazy, and you have to stop him from being lazy and escape from the hands of the Devil, which are determined to seize those whose hands are idle! With eight simple but interesting levels, I'm sure you'll be anxious to see the ending!

I beg your pardon, I was getting a bit carried away. This game isn't the best game on NG, but I put a bit of work on it. If you give this game a low score, please give the Audio Portal music a fair vote too - it's great! If you find a bug, please tell me through a private message or review. I will fix it as soon as possible. Your name will also appear in the game!

At the time of writing, five players have completed the game. Congratulations and thank you!

Minimalista game, not really well done but I did enjoy it for what it is.

Story makes no sense... or does it? Graphics and everything else are quite low on effort, and the system that checks for "idleness" is wrong but somehow, not unfair. Challenge level is acceptable, being modest on earlier levels and getting better at the level 7 and 8.

SECRET MEDAL: "Double Trouble" can only be unlocked at level 8 - Must go really unprepared on the second room.

Just like it is said below, you just get killed for no reason. You can't change direction without stopping for a moment and sometimes the game considers it as a fail, sometimes not, there is completely no rule in it. I even got killed once when I just touched the exit! What the hell? If you will be (maybe) responding to this, please don't make an easy exit sending me to the walkthrough, but explain to me what's wrong with this game and what am I being killed for and what for am I not? What exactly the game is considering a reason for losing the stage? This is more important thing to say than the description above.

Sorry if you didn't enjoy the game. It was a silly little game I made when I started out programming, and I've really grown since it. The thing about the game is that it detects movement by checking, at a fixed interval, whether the square you're on is the same square as the one when the game (or the hypothetical demon) last checked. In retrospect, it's not the best mechanism, but yeah, it *was* my first game. ;)

for now its a 4/5 or 8/10. its just I get killed and half the time for NO REASON.

This is a very very good game.
I'll say this once: Only thing i have against it is it's unfairness and graphics, and the second one i don't even care much about.
Other than that, albeit the music, the concept, the gameplay; it's simply perfect.
