from the dark

Spark is stuck in the farthest wetlands but with the help of a friendly drop of water, you can return her home to the lava pit from where she came, in the puzzle platformer from the dark by P.C Roberts.

The controls on this one are just plain awful.

Game won't complete loading.. :(

Agree, controls are horrible! You can't jump with precision - and that makes jumping from platform to platform very difficult. I did finally make it through though...

I don't normally complain about controls, but I completely agree -- they're awful. Little characters slide everywhere. Also, annoying glitch on the 2nd level: the column suddenly rose on its own and wouldn't go back down even though both characters were still on the buttons.

Same here. Controls totally useless.

I think, mochi(media)(bot)s specialty is to destroy gameplay like in this game. Every time I load a game and I see 1 or 2 frames a second, I know this must be mochi(****).

2 thumbs down. Text is hard to read. Font, placement & timing are bad. I understand how you might expect a drop to be slippery, but you sill need to make the game playable.

Who makes a game that won't resize with ctrl-scroll these days?

Made it thru the first level. Then just blackness. Real time waster Bart.

Level 2 is flawed! if the column doesn't lower and the wind tunnel is blocked, there is no way to try again without resetting the whole game. 2 thumbs down too.

Lovely game and wonderfull music but I agree: slippery controls (bit frustrating sometimes but not that bad) and the text is not timable - I couldn't read things because they dissapeared just because I was too fast on playing @Anonymous: resetting the whole game in level 2 is not necessary if you let one character "die"
