Endless Castle

by Blackduck - 48 Hour Competition Entry

This is a "Game" in which you're in a "Castle" that you have to "Escape" from which is actually "Endless" because it's in your "Dreams" that are full of lag "on purpose" to simulate the "true" "experience". " "

Arrow keys to move, and try not to get stuck inside a wall while on the "magical" lift-y things.

EDIT: The game runs the size of your browser due to the way it's embedded on the page. If you want the game to run faster just make your browser size smaller (Try and keep a working resolution though)

Short platformer with no real challenge. Mixed bag with strong innovation but lacking any fun. No fulfillment, purpose or reason to keep playing.

The ending made me chuckle a bit.

It's too boring, there's really is no gameplay to speak of.

It is quite boring. Also, I got stuck between the tiles and I had to restart the game.

I liked it. Original and off the wall, kinda short but a game none the less.

This game has interesting visuals, but no real purpose or feeling of escape. If you inverted the sphere so that you were moving away from the center, it would have been more escapie.

Despite reading the warning about not get stuck in a wall, and my effort trying to avoid it, it was exactly what happened the first time I played :).
I liked the circular effect of the platforms but the game failed in delivering an experience as it gave no context, no purpose. It seemed to me that it was just a walk, not an escape.
