Finally got around to playing this classic. :) Was a short but fun game, with plenty of replays to be done to get the medals... though I found moving around the room wasn't as obvious as it could have been. The 'invisible borders' could've been visible, for example, and moving back via the back button wasn't the easiest way either. The motion looking across the room took some time, too, when you wanted to get to that vending machine as quick as possible for example. So, control-wise not optimal, but the rest of it was great. Props on great voice acting too, really builds up the setting in a cool way. Good game.

Nice one Cyberdevil. I wonder what makes this game a classic xD
Fair enough about the controls, the looking around thing was something I especially wanted, so it would be interesting to explore ways I could have made it better.
Glad you had fun :D


It's very fun but why is the leader board flooded with people beating it in 5 seconds? Is there some secret win I'm not seeing?


Aprime responds:

Now that would be telling ;)


what even


Aprime responds:

Lol


There is still a glitch in the game that happened when i got the bolt medal. The same happen to ireumireum (in the previous comments). Basically i took more than 1 minute the first time i tried and when i finished the game (maybe because i reset it like 5 five times trying to find the shortest route to finish the game quickly) the counter displayed that i took 13 seconds and it gave me the medal.


Aprime responds:

At least it's a bug that helps.
I know it's a timeout glitch, but I guess I'll fix it in the new games.


A fun little game, I hope you'll make more of this! A nice little time waster :-)


Aprime responds:

Will do :)
