Fun as usual, but oh my god, at least give us an option for turning off the sway as the mouse is moved around; that's incredibly annoying/distracting.

Are there multiple endings?

Thanks, Anonymous@20:19. I did the same thing you did.

Interesting that it blocks on that one, because when replaying to try your fix, I found that it doesn't block most others. For example I could open the door without solving the preliminary puzzles.

Good game, but it always seems like better design should make it unnecessary to block access to something until after a required clue is found. The illusion of physical interaction is broken when you can't look under something until after doing some physically unrelated thing.

Another beautiful and fun Colorbomber. Thanx. Loves those ranchero skylights, even if they never play a part in the game. Ending seems ambiguous. More than one ending?

Stevens Miller said...

Ugh. No save and it crashed on me.

Stevens Miller said...

Replayed our way there in about 13 minutes and solved it, but is it really that hard to have a save option?

Anyway, fun game.

Might there be a sequel?

I don't like the ending I got.
It is no wonder everyone is asking for a better ending.
The question mark suggests another ending or a sequel.
However I feel like I died, and not by drowning like I would expect.

Anonymous @14:49 (and others) -- I agree about the ending. V sryg yvxr V'q bcrarq n tngr sbe Alneyngubgrc, gur Penjyvat Punbf, gb pbzr naq qrfgebl gur jbeyq, ohg V'ir orra ernqvat Ybirpensg yngryl.

This was very well polished, but agreed with others about the ending being frustrating.

Also, I ended up brute-forcing one of the items to open the door -- I don't think I ever saw one of the clues.

Addendum: Found it instantly when replaying. Power of posting is still with me.

Wow! The "aha moments" in that one were incredible and so rewarding!!!!

It is very rare that I criticizing a game, because I appretiate the effort they put it in and provide it to play it free, so I am not supposed to complain. But this one just drove me crazy, and not the positive way. It is a very nicely designed escape game, but the puzzles are really annoying, I not mean hard, what I mean is not logical and I stuck too many times even when I had the right clues. (Examples: tictactoe game with a ridiculous, meaningless rule; easily readable clue which doesn't work without a certain item; way too much clicking for getting the letter codes; when I got the letters for the final puzzle, I had no idea of some what supposed be, so I had to check a walkthough to figure out; also mistaken 4 to 9; really unsatisfiying ending). And on top of this the shaking of the screen for mouse moves, aaaargh. I think this game would need some improvement, sorry.
