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.

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.


Good work, would like to play it, but it lags way too much. Like I always say, if you're going to go out of your way to remove quality options from the right click menu, put quality options in the game.
