Perhaps it was the chronic rage which put you in this state... you stand, your arms pinned across your chest with no way to free yourself in some sort of white jacket. You can't remember much... not even your name... but you feel a consciousness near you, a great evil. You feel yourself picked up and led into a room. How long were you waiting out there? You can't remember that either. Now, as the door slams shut behind you, the white walls begin to transform... the pressure of the consciousness is great. A panic sets in; you begin to sweat as voices and cries echo around you. It has come.

Survive the increasingly difficult waves of enemies by carefully dodging them. Note that certain enemies kill other enemies.

TharosTheDragon (8-29-2012): People have been saying the bomb in round 3 doesn't respawn sometimes. I don't know why that happened, but the game now regularly checks to see if the bomb has respawned and respawns it if it hasn't. Let me know if there are any further problems.

TharosTheDragon (9-4-2012): Supposedly in order for an enemy to spawn on top of you it would have to randomly generate its coordinates to be on top of you 500 times in a row. That is to say, it should never happen to anyone. But people have been complaining about it all the same so I've now updated the random generator to use polar coordinates and ensure that enemies always spawn really far away from you. I've also fixed my last update so that two creepers shouldn't appear at once. Let me know if there are any further problems.

People are complaining about the hit boxes and I'm not sure why. Remember to take perspective into account. Your image can appear to be overlapping with the image of an enemy without your 3-dimensional spaces actually touching. That is to say, you will hit an enemy when the part of you that's touching the floor overlaps with the part of the enemy that's touching the floor. Also if you're getting lag you should turn down the quality by clicking on the Q.

TharosTheDragon (9-22-2012): Thanks to hourder I discovered a typo in my randomizer that caused enemies to always spawn at the top of the screen. I fixed it.

Well, this game turned out to be harder than I thought. I was originally thinking it was a platform game and you were supposed to go from one place to another. It turned out to be something much harder, unfortunately. I do think it's cool to have a game where you're in an asylum. You'd think those places would be without harm. It seems like there should have been fewer of those enemies.

I thought I was being timed for the game, but there were no numbers on board. I assume you just keep on playing until you win all the medals. The graphics reminded me of W-P-S. I'm surprised he wasn't billed here, given how a lot of people worked on it. The music was rather suiting too.

samulis responds:

It WAS supposed to be hard. ;) -Samulis

I'm not quite sure what the game has to do with a platformer... it's clearly not the same graphical setup or angle and it has no platforms...

The game can be beaten and we tried to make it clear that you can do that by beating each boss or dominant character in that round... the level select even has a panel that gives tips on defeating each boss, as well as how to defeat the eyes in the first round. Once you beat the first three levels (as displayed in the level select), there IS a time trial if you wish to play that... however, it's essentially just "beat the game as fast as you can". - Tharos

p.s. you are an obsessive reviewer and belong in an asylum. ;)
