I loved the light effect and the agonizing atmosphere (and I do mean that in positive way) and the story fit in well with that.

Only negative thing I could come up with was the really small size of the screen .

Thumbs up!

The really small visibility (even with the torch) is a bit of a bother but the atmosphere and the maze generation was really cool.

The mazes are a bit too complex for the size of the viewing area, but if the area would be bigger it would probably be all too easy :)

Thanks for the feedback! @puffi, if I release a new version I can put a scale option to increase the size of the screen (zooming x2). And like Andrew said, if I made the viewing area bigger it would be too easy.

Good game, would be nice of there was a scaling option (in order to have a bigger window). Walking through mazes isn't my thing though, I like rooms and corridors more. :)

Nice little game. An by little I mean: Small screen! Glad I didn't play it on my 24' desk screen.
I like the mechanics of the game and felt quite lost in the maze. So the atmosphere was right.

Great game, but the screen size was rather annoying. I really like the atmosphere and the way the light worked.
