This is a very basic Alpha Test Demo of a game. It contains only three levels, for testing purposes.
I need people to test this and try and spot any big gameplay bugs before I start building the other levels (I don't wanna have to go back over 20 levels pasting bug fixes or updated behaviours).
The idea for this game came from Tim of Silvernova's Pointless, linked below:
At the start, your mouse will flicker and vanish. You must navigate it around each level, picking up as many Tokens and Point Globes as possible. At any time, you can advance to the next level simply by standing on the blue teleporter panel and pressing space. But it's best to pick up all the Tokens, since each 100 will grant you an extra continue if you die.
You can hit walls a maximum of 6 times before you die.
Although you can't see your mouse pointer, various things are strategically placed to give hints. Water will splash when you walk through it. Leaves are displaced as you walk over them, and when you pick up an item or hit a wall, a flash will reveal your position. You also become visible all the while you are standing on the teleporter panel. Some surfaces (such as the teleporter panel) also make certain footstep sounds when you're on them.
Your little mouse girlfriend, Mimi, has been mouse-napped by the evil Hourglass! He's always envied you for taking the limelight! But after endless hours of scheming during saves, program freezes and file downloads, the demented timepiece has finally got his own back.
You must now rescue Mimi from HG's lair. Simple, eh?
Not quite. Ever the cunning little turd, Hourglass has switched off the Windows GUI.
...You can't actually see yourself.
Which is a bummer.
Copy all files to a folder and run the exe file.
The following options haven't been added yet:
