A difficult skill/puzzle game that requires good keyboard skills. Stay in the darkness. Be quiet.

Use ARROWS to move. Use MOUSE to throw pebbles. Use 'R' to restart level and ESC to get back to the main menu.

- You can attract enemies by bumping into a nearby wall
- You can push circular objects and move shadows that way

I've been following this game for quite some time now and I really do love it, but I played the 3-D version, porting shadows, and it wasn't as fun the movement of the player was very awkward. But all in all its a very nice game and I'd love to see it grow. :)

Fun and challenging game.

The levels are nice and challenging, and I like the atmosphere the audio sets. Great stealth game. The levels were well-designed and the gameplay was fun. Good work.


A superb game I suppose. Top notch quality. Kept me interested.


This is hard. i say is and was cause im not even close to done. this somehow manage to stays fun which is interesting cause i usually don't like strategy or puzzle games. basically this what you should use to describe a game difficult fun, great story. (i think, im still not done)

Very good strategy game.

I've been looking for one of these on Newgrounds for some time. The puzzles are nice and very challenging, and the light vs dark adds a nice dynamic to some of the puzzles, especially the later ones. Puzzle 24, I have no idea how you would solve that with 3 stars.

The atmosphere set by the music is also a great touch. 5/5, 10/10, added to favorites. I'm looking forward to your next project.
