About the Story

This short game comprises of a few puzzles, pieced together to form some kind of continuity, but lacks any story. The author describes it as a test for creating challenging puzzles.

Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide

Escape from a death trap in this, the first of a projected series of very small puzzle-based games. No plot, but well-implemented and entertaining enough. Spend a lunch break on it.

-- Carl Muckenhoupt

Tiny game with simple puzzles and several bugs. You're mysteriously transported into a dungeon of sorts, and the ceiling's coming down on you. The first puzzle is fairly dumb--you have to WAIT for a good 20 moves before you can make any progress--and the others are only marginally better. At the end, the author refers to this as a coding exercise, and it's probably best treated that way.

-- Duncan Stevens

An interesting little affair written as a puzzle-implementing exercise.
