Installation Notes: 

SWF file made in the latest Adobe Flash. It should open straight up.

Brief Play Description: 

You control your character through the maze of both visible and invisible walls. You can use a microphone to generate your 'light' in the form of sound, or you can use the 'L' key to activate it if you have no microphone.

Be careful! The zombies will be attracted to the sounds that you make. If you get caught, you will have to start that level again.

Getting to the sink at the end of each level will allow you to go on to the next level.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! We do have touch where you walk into walls, however I will agree that a lot of the ideas for senses, including smell, had to be dropped due to time and technical constraints.

If we'd written the game in XNA, rumble on a controller would definitely have been an option.


Just played your game

I had tons of fun playing your game and I loved the isometric pixel art style of the game. However, my one gripe is that you don't really use your other senses to navigate... although I guess anything other than sight and sound is kind of out of the question unless you use a rumble enabled controller. Buuuutttt, I did have lots of fun and those damn zombies got me from time to time.
