You probably remember Abstractica, a game made by Hempuli of Reactor Products. Abstractica˛ is an enhanced version of that game, with lots of new features, so that it is clearly a new game and not only an update (in case if you wonder why not just to update the original download topic). It's Hempuli's game with some help from my side.

So, basically the idea is to solve all kind of challenging and mysterious riddles & puzzles by entering (one of) the correct answer(s) to the answerbox. The riddles can be anything from mathematical equations and word association tasks to graphical glitches and epigrams. They may be short or long, logical or illogical. They may take 1 second or 1 hour per level to be solved. You must occasionally use some external tools, like Google, Excel, Paint, PrintScrn, on some levels!

We added lots of stuff to this version compared to the original:
- 5-times more levels, that is, 250 levels in total! (some 210 new ones)
- New level types
- Limited tip-option
- Limited skip-option
- Automatic game save after every 5th level
- Three additional tips after every 20th level
- Full in-game instructions
- Continuous support & help forum
- Music

The levels are not in order of difficulty, but they will generally get harder towards the end of the game. That means that even quite soon there can be some harder levels among the easy ones and, on the other hand, some very obvious tasks can be found even in the latter parts of the game. Also, the perceived difficulty of the different levels is very subjective, which means that some generally very easy level may be near to impossible for you, although that should be quite rare.

To complete this whole game, you must have a lot of patience, cleverness and intelligence! Those who can do it, will also be rewarded

If you'll get stuck, ask here or email to Hempuli at There is also a forum at

btw. The music you chose is very distracting. Make it more ambient. I was trying to consintrate on the game but all i could hear was some woman talking with strong melodys.

Maybe i could whip up some good music for you?
Posted by Jimbob 10th October, 2006

ok, the four I'm stuck on are:
The irrational one (see above)
The beating heart (BPM doesn't work ?)
The three elements worm one (no idea)
And now the IBM one... (actor what?)

Don't ask from me, MJK knows better those because he has made those.
Posted by MJK 10th October, 2006

@Jimbob, you're really close with the irrationalxxx level, rethink the last letter. Also with BPM you're almost right there what is been asked! Worm-level has three "elements" on the screen, worm is one of them. IBM is really easy, you should know what it is.

@U.2, the music has been made just for this game, but of course not everybody likes that kind of music. Mute it so you can concentrate better.. (if you have some good music which you have copyright, I could take a look of course )

I have problems with:
-The litte black rectangle
-The pentagon level

Help plz !
Posted by Noyb 10th October, 2006

- It is indeed little. Perhaps enlarging it would make things clearer?
- Their shape, color, and what they once composed are not the important part. Just that they were once part of something.
Posted by Tim 10th October, 2006

Not a fan of these kinda games.. if you can really call them that.
Posted by DaDDe 10th October, 2006

hard but very nice game!
I have problem with these levels:

*the one with a white screen and some very small black letters that says something like tips

*the one with the alphabet in columns

can anyone help me please!
Posted by Noyb 10th October, 2006

DaDDe: Muck around in MS paint for both. Play around with color and zoom, and I'm sure you'll get it.

(P.S. Still stuck on irrational turning, transparent red rectangle, dot-->time, and red rose ones)
Posted by DaDDe 10th October, 2006

Noyb: the last two words are: saw and rush
you are definately on the right way with the "transparent" task.
on the red rose, word for the first picture is something all people have but don't want to see(and think of the color)
Posted by CsaR 10th October, 2006

Now I'm stuck at the:
-3 boxes which covers the blue box
-XX oil? corporation

Man this game is addicting! Thumbs up!
Posted by Reno 10th October, 2006

good but you need a 'enter key' function for faster play
Posted by Jimbob 10th October, 2006

That was very irrational
Posted by Noyb 10th October, 2006

Thanks DaDDE!

CsaR: For the box one, have you tried *everything* with your mouse?
Posted by MJK 11th October, 2006

Hehee..nice to see some brainstorming here!

@CSar, XX oil of the biggest corporations in the world...

@Noyb, dot-> this the one with 20 black dots and two green dots? Hint: convert the black ones, keep the green ones.

btw i reviewed the game! AND I GAVE IT AN OVERALL OF 8/10! But for some reason it still says 5! WTF?! Anyway, don't have a go at me if you don't agree with what parts of it say. These are my own point a views

Wow, 207th place already.
Posted by MJK 11th October, 2006

Hey U.2, thanks for your review! I enjoyed reading it (very comprehensive) and I agree with many points/suggestions you made there. Weird how it shows only as 5/10..

Nice, that you marked it, phanoo. At first i thought to put the gamefile into a .wav-file, but .dll-files are much less exciting...

np MJK. I will proberly review more games. I was abit nervous about adding the review. Becuase the one i gave to you was the 1st i have ever done on TDC!
Posted by izac 11th October, 2006

Oh by the way.. I am stuck on 'Fly pretty...' one. I've tried and tried. But i just can't get it!

The tip says it's the easiest anagram! But it's not:S
Posted by MJK 11th October, 2006

Well, U.2, if you have two words, what is the easiest way to make an anagram out of them....? Not too many changes..
Posted by Noyb 11th October, 2006

u2: it's such an easy anagram, each word has the same letters in the same positions
Posted by Jimbob 11th October, 2006

That heart is still beating me .
Tried every combination of the BPM, BPS calcs but still nothing.
I think there's another I can't do, but I think it's cos I turned the sound off...

Think I'm around level 150 now. There's three rectangles on a purple background. And I'm guessing it's something to do with red and blue overlapping to make purple. But again stuck.

The irrational problems that can only be solved by just pure randomness kinda drag this game down. Sure you say that adds to the longevity but I just think it's stupid and will probably drive most people away. Doesn't stop me playing it, but that's only because no-one else has finished it yet and there are some interesting brainteasers among the annoying ones.
Posted by Noyb 11th October, 2006

An odd observation about the heart one. My friend and I both counted beats on the bpm one. I got the right answer, he got about sixty more than mine. Perhaps the bpm is speed dependent, but the answer is fixed?
Posted by MJK 12th October, 2006

@Noyb, that's an interesting observation...explains how it's a bit difficult for many We'll fix that one later.

@Jimbob, the purple bg+rectangles level, yes I like this one. They (colors and shapes) are purely just to distract you (and it seems to have worked..). Press CTRL+F to restart the level and I'm sure you will figure it out.. I'll PM you the answer to the beating heart level.
Posted by DaVince 12th October, 2006

Very nice game. I came to level 15 so far, really interesting thing!
Posted by izac 12th October, 2006

Phizzy. You are shit!
Posted by markno2 13th October, 2006

What's the purple scribble answer one it says word with O...
I don't get the X,Y one (shown in screenshot)

Posted by MJK 13th October, 2006

Mark, it's an english word. Many find it as "penguin", but it doesn't start with "P" and there is "O" also. Now you just have to figure it out

X,Y, yes. This has been asked a lot. You can find good extra tips from the earlier discussion here:

Posted by Jakob37 14th October, 2006

This game is addictive, annoying and hard, and I love it
Thumbs up!
Posted by MJK 14th October, 2006

Thanks a lot Jakob. Annoying games are the best, aren't they?
Posted by Bear Cub 14th October, 2006

that's cool I can't pass the level with the "that's an English word"
that's really awsome

Hey! Is the some kind of cheat for Skips and Tips?
Shown in the screen shot he has loads of skips and tips!
Posted by MJK 15th October, 2006

Those are only for developers, so don't worry about them
