thought lost forever, Walking in Circles has been unearthed and carefully reconstructed over a decade after it first confounded early internet planeteers.

This game is actually really unique. I was stuck for a while and had to look up how to solve a few puzzles in the middle, but I eventually beat it. Very cool game!

The game has no music, isn't much graphical wise, while being thoroughly insipid and totally nonsensical. It really feels unfinished, as aside from bumbling around tapping anything, and waiting around for something to work, you listen to a loop of background audio. Text size is the only thing differentiating dialogue options and characters' speech. The speech boxes are a pain to look at. I have no drive to complete the game other than, "hmm, what is the next obscure trigger for something wacky to come onscreen?"

I like the first person traveling part of this point and click, which leads to the most enjoyable part-- jumping off a cliff.

It was a pretty enjoyable game, that gave you a Myst-like point & click experience, in a low resources browser/flash setting. It's still enjoyable, after all this time. However, WHY is the projector broken? It used to work. I can kinda understand why the PDA doesn't have live chat anymore, but there are a few things that have changed. The flashing makes the PDA hard to read. ALSO, what ever happened to the original site, with all the controllable walking simulations, and the Captain Kirk song? The song is on YouTube now, but it seems to be a different & hybrid version. There's the smooth animation, but a little less dancing. I liked comparing the two versions.

I have always liked this game, and it almost feels like it should get a revisit. Up the resolution & quality & redevelop it using modern 3D tools instead of Flash. I'd definitely try something like that out. It's disappointing after all these years, that nothing ever came of the teased expansion.

I just discovered that you can turn around on the cliff with the Just Jump button.....

A masterpiece in old flash weirdness. It's aged like a fine wine.
