With the ability to rotate gravity, you traverse a series of test chambers. As you complete these challenges, the rogue intelligence running the facility reveals your purpose. And your time is almost up.

The game it's not that hard
What makes it very hard however it's the perpective, they're easy to beat but just until you realize how to
In a certain point, every level blew my mind once I discovered how to, it was fun and I hope you make a sequel or a harder version of this >XD
PD: I just noticed, this is my first review were the personal review and rating may be changed; it was finally about time

JoshuaStone responds:

Thanks for playing! The will definitely be a sequel of some sort, whether it's another web game or something larger on Steam and such. Either way, I'm sure it'll be at least a little more challenging! ;)

Amazing game! Can you add the option to rotate the exit door in editor mode... simple but useful. But this game is great regardless. (:

JoshuaStone responds:

Glad you enjoyed playing! At this point I'm not adding any more features, but I definitely understand how that would be useful. Maybe in the next one! ;)

I really love this game, and the cat too!
it will be great if you add a place where we can share our own levels!

[spoiler] after we escaped the narator say that : Have you're freedom for now, but you will come back : does that means there is gonna be a Rotate 2?

I created a custom level with few challenges (i hope the code will be valide) :

JoshuaStone responds:

Thanks for playing, glad enjoyed! Yeah, there's definitely going to be a sequel in some form or another; whether it's another web game or something larger on Steam and such, I'm not sure. :)

I love this game and the music in it because it make me think about Nitrome's games . I only look at the walkthrough 2 times for the level 14 and 15

JoshuaStone responds:

Thank you for playing, I'm glad you like it! :D

This is pretty good and better than things I make. I appreciate this game's uncanny resemblance to Canabalt. It's also pretty challenging. I guess my only problem with it was that it felt slightly weird to control.

JoshuaStone responds:

Thanks for playing! It's definitely tricky to come up with a decent control scheme for this kind of movement, and I can understand that this solution is a little awkward for some people. :)
