I seriously hope you're going to take this idea further!

a clever, great game. please make more like this!

"IMPORTANT: the phone directory must be downloaded to play."

And yet.. you don't provide a link to the frickin directory.. Now, I personally like your games.. So I went through the trouble of finding this directory.. Because it is litterally a text file.. let me help you with that..
[Edit: I did paste the list but after the author pasted it in the description my list was redundant and looked silly.]

Ta Da.. Now (once this passes judgement) other people don't need to search for it..

That being said it was a pretty fun game I do wish it was longer, though I understand it was a jam game. I hope you consider doing more with it (I am guessing you already have considered doing more as several of the numbers don't appear to be used).

Edit: Awesome fast response sir!

Hello, sorry it is a mistake on my part, I thought the 'Shared Files' were accessible by everyone. I directly pasted the list.

Maybe I'm just not smart enough to figure out what the clues are to realize what numbers you need to use. I could find the level select just by trying a bunch. Then eventually found that there are active numbers scattered all over the place. I googled to find that 112 is actually a cell phone number that's used in Europe, but I would never have guessed that and am not sure if there would have been any straightforward way for me to look it up anywhere. Tried googling a few other numbers that I found worked, and came up with nothing. Then decided that I'm not going to just brute force 1000 numbers to find out what they do.

Other games that you've uploaded have been good, so I'm giving the benefit of the doubt and assuming that I just haven't figured out how I'm supposed to approach it.

Edit: All right, much better now that there's a directory in the comments :)
It seemed more like a matter of just trying everything than really figuring out puzzles, but it was still enjoyable.

joqlepecheur responds:

Hi there, sorry about that I attached a file in the project and thought it was accessible. You are not supposed to brute force on the contrary. I edited the content (I hope you can give it another go !)
