controlling

Controlling: a retro puzzle platformer where you move with the cursor keys and use the mouse to remove and add blocks by Dan Lin.

Seems fun so far as I just got into it, will give it a fair shake I think.

not bad

seems to be a bug on the second level where the 'no blocks allowed' square appear, where if you go off the edge of the screen to the left you get stuck.

no idea how to solve it either way...

-k said...

I can't seem to do anything with the mouse. In the first level, anywhere I click I get a sound that (utterly guessing here) seems to indicate I cannot place anything or select anything. Since I can't jump either, how am I supposed to complete the level?

-k said...

Okay, after fiddling around more and feeling like a fool I have managed to get to the "Things I just didn't understand" level (with the door in the center in a pit and high ledges to either side of the opening that seem "un-landable" to me). Anyone have a hint?

For the "----" level :
When you press yourself against a wal, you hang on it. Jump off inward and you will land in the pit.

If stuck, R key is your friend.

having re-visited the game, i'm stuck in the same level as -k.

Jack'D said...

POP. somehow managed to get on top of the top island in the middle as slide down the side. pretty sure i already tried that.

took me a while and a little frustration but, i finished it good time waster before my dressrehearsal. thnx bart!

Jack'd and -K, walk to the left. The blocks mentioned are a couple levels later.

It is I said...

Annoying game! ;-)

Great game till one level where you have just one block.. then it was kinda impossible to solve for me and now I am very very angry! What a shame, the beginning was great!

Very interesting game, definitely some stumpers. At first I was so stuck on the level with the one block, before I realized the blindingly obvious solution and felt silly. Let's see if I can beat this thing...

would you mind sharing that "blindingly obvious solution"?

Carrett said...

...wow... normally I am easily stumped by games that EVERYONE says are easy, but this one was just the opposite...
I would post a video walkthrough but I have 3 reasons:
A)I am lazy
B)I don't know how
C)I am afraid someone might hack my computer in some way because of it.

i am so frustrated...i dont know how to do anything with the mouse i click and nothing happens!! can somebody help me!

-k said...

@lorii:

There are levels that don't really require the mouse, perhaps you should try walking in a direction that doesn't seem reasonable? Perhaps a pit isn't a pit at all?

-k said...

Read the suggestions, thanks for the help! Managed to pass the level but not really sure how (I think I actually jumped down into the pit somehow...). Interesting little game, Bart. Once I figured out the basics, it was fun. Thanks!

lorii said...

omg im so stupid thank you so much!! now im on the level that everyone is stuck on with the one block.

dyork said...

Not too hard, quite fun. Would prefer it wasn't so tiny.

Hint: One block goes way up on the left, to support a double wrap.

I don't know how the controls work. Can somebody explain?

stuck on the level where he's in a room almost full of blocks, any hints?

Anonymous said...

@waterlilly just cxleanup all the blocks, row by row. the door will appear behind the blocks you clean up

Mikkie said...

If you, like me, got stuck for 15 minutes at the first level because you were trying to add or remove blocks and couldn't: the trick is not in clicking, but in using the "a" key.

For those stuck on the level with only one block: you actually do not need the block at all

planets said...

@Mikkie I had to use the block...
