With the safe tumbler riddles all you have to do is enter 4 and it gives you the whole code :/

LockedOnAnimations responds:

Oh my, that's a pretty bad bug — thanks for catching it. I'll fix it as soon as I can.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Fun little game with playful artwork and unique puzzles. The interface was simple to use and the difficulty was minimal. The only ding was the quickly annoying soundtrack.

LockedOnAnimations responds:

Thanks! I'll work on getting a mute button in the game. :)


Rated 3 / 5 stars

it was fun but not very hard. the music also fit in with the sometimes spooky atmosphere.

LockedOnAnimations responds:

Thanks! The second game will be slightly harder than this one, so if you want more of a challenge in the same type of setting, keep your eyes out for it. :)


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Rather reasonable, but you automatically lose a whole point for failing to have a mute button. The music is fine, yet many gamers multi-task.

LockedOnAnimations responds:

Thanks for the feedback. I'll implement a mute button as soon as I can. I wish web browsers would let you mute tabs, but until then it'll have to do.

Navigation is difficult. Froze on 2nd scene, tried everything, Benedict is saying "Oh, I'm, Uh, that is". I really can't give an accurate review on a game I can't play.

LockedOnAnimations responds:

Sorry about that. It's a bug I don't how to fix because it doesn't appear consistently. :(
