towlrboy

Towlr are puzzles that come without instruction and without explanation. Your job is to discover their secret. Can you solve this small and short TowlrBoy by Damian Sommer and grab some digital cake? (If you liked this you can find more towlr puzzles here)

Anonymous said...

yes, I felt really smart after solving it

Alie said...

3 funerals for me:O

cj said...

i'm gonna solve all those towlr games muhahaha :-)

kboyd said...

Lol, solved it the first time, then couldn't believe that, that was the whole game. So I refreshed thinking maybe it's a new puzzle every time you refresh. Then the same puzzle loaded and I couldn't solve it. I kept dying. After about 30 deaths I realised what I had to do and solved it easy. Then I also realise that the first time around I was just very lucky. Hehehe ;-)

Niall said...

50+ deaths and counting and I still haven't got a clue.

itsunami said...

Got it after 4 deaths and then after 0 deaths... but absolutely no idea how i did that :O

Anonymous said...

took me 14 deaths and a 5 min break to see the light, no problem after that... Nice one

Cup of tea said...

1 death... I thought there was more levels... A little too easy...

Felisberto said...

I actually felt dummer after solving it. So easy! Of course! :-P

Anonymous said...

A clue would be nice :)

Reebus said...

I understand the game after 9 deaths. Then I finished it without any death.

Niall said...

I'm still stuck and can't figure out what to do at all. I'm not loving these towlr games at all but I'm guessing that's more to do with me having a brain that doesn't work the way it needs to.

hey! done! well a clue: when you and die you can see a yellow dot glowing briefly, that could be the shadow where you were... maybe you should'nt leave any shadow...
sorry for my english, hope it'll help a little ;o)

Niall said...

Thanks very much. I had seen the shadow and even with your clue I was still very confused, but then it dawned on me what to do and I finished it :)

I DON'T GET IT! What am I supposed to do?

Anonymous said...

Well that was an EPIC FAIL!

Anonymous said...

I won with 0 deaths... and I have no idea how.

Peter said...

Finally, after a zillion deaths, I found it. :=) The music was a total failure though.

LOL took me so long to figure it out. Got a little mad but took a better look at it and afer 14 deaths figured it out. great game

RyaRainbow said...

i figured out the dots but idk what to do with them :/

Anonymous said...

can someone please explain already? for petes sake, im about to have a broken laptop

Peter said...

It's really rather easy, so it's hard to give a hint without giving it all away.
Play slowly, move one dot at a time and make a mental note of where your dots are before you get shot.
Then rethink your strategy.

Anonymous said...

plz just give it away already!

Anonymous said...

lol i got it nvm!

Patrick said...

ok it's really simple: it's kinda like snake if you think about it don't touch the walls

Rabbitz said...

Patrick
What do you mean don't touch the walls?

Peter said...

The blocks that you move with the arrow keys really show your position in the maze.

Anonymous said...

It's as if the two dots are the X and Y coordinates of a single point, and your goal is to move that point to the center of the maze w/o touching the walls.

Good post.

2 deaths for me.

The Muscle Maximizer said...

LOL took me such a long time to find it out. Got just a little mad but took a much better view it and afer 14 fatalities figured it out. great game.

Anonymous said...

Wow, took me exactly 26 deaths. Can't believe how long it took me to figure that out. :|

tam said...

I'm really satisfied of myself :P
