[Adventure/Puzzle] Manipulator
« on: April 04, 2009, 23:46:31 »
Type:
Its sort of an Adventure with puzzles

Description:
"There are people among us who call themselves Manipulators. These Manipulators
can take control of your mind and use you. They are a threat to us;
we must get rid of them at once! Be alert! Do not trust anybody!

If you're a fan of unusual and surreal games, this is one to try!
This game also contains some flashy imagenary so epileptics should be warned. "

That was a quote from the page where you can download the game and i thought it was important to put this in the description. Well the game is about manipulating people. The aim of the game is to pass each level. (eg 1-2, 1-3 ,1-4, 2-2 etc...) sort of like mario levels.
You have to do this by taking over peoples bodies and then using them (if the have a gun they can shoot, if they can double jump well then they can double jump  XD , and so on), you can also read thier minds to find passwords.
Thats all im gonna say bout it, so go ahead and try !  C)p

yeah, I recently found this one. It's weird. But many of the games from the Virtanen brothers are. X)

I played this when it came out. I really liked the concept, and how it all comes back together at the very end.

If only it were longer.
good bye

Looks like a nice game. The screenshot gives it a sort of matrix feeling. :) Nice.

If there hadn't be the screenshots, I probably hadn't even bothered downloading this. :)

Thanks for posting.

EDIT: ah this is not nice... The game changes the resolution of my primary screen, and then opens on my secondary screen...

Got to the end.

The game is interesting. It's a pitty you can't save or select the sector to start from.
And a Windowed mode wouldn't have been a bad idea either.

Agreed about the windowed mode, but a nicely presented game all-round.
