Works fine for me. Fun game though I wish there was more levels

Way to short, it needs more levels to be engaging. The first levels tutorial things is pretty good but the rest of the game is missing. Good start.

@Bartje321 and @RichMakeGame: I looked over it and I might have found a fix. Seems that I copied the wrong dll's, so I replaced them and uploaded it. If it works or not, please let me know.

Fun. The hide box detection is a bit buggy.

Couldn't start. Just some cryptic error on win7 64.

I compiled it on Win7 64 so there is problems with the dll's. I changed it back to the previous version and link the xp version here:

Hopefully it will work. If not, please let me know directly.

With the one up top, it claims that d3d9.dll is "not a valid windows image" and I'm getting Bartje321's problem in the one you linked in the comments.

Delete the supplied directx dll (I don't understand why you've put them to the game anyway?) - they're specifically for amd64 processors, so if you have intel, game won't run for you.

Not that you've missed much, although it seems it could work as a puzzle game, it's extremely short and easy.

My bad. I forgot that only one of the files was necessary, as otherwise it wont start. Although, I've removed the d3d9.dll in both, so give it a try again.

Can't understand how to play. It says "HIDE" but I don't seem to be able to do so. Weird.
