Cool, love the stress when hacking, and seeing a lightbeam approaching.

Stealth-mechanics work quite well!

The game progresses well through the levels, fun game.

Haha, I love the Intro and Level Complete screens! Very sensual! :D

Nicely done. I'm a fan of stealth games and this plays well. Wish there were more levels!

Looks very nice; sounds pretty good too. I'd prefer a bit more variation in the gameplay, though.

Loved the graphics of the bug guy.

Basic mechanics are solid, moving slightly faster than the light beam the tension of hacking all great.

A little overview map would have helped with the later levels. Maybe baked into the background? Found myself making notes on the later level I got stuck on.

Funny little game. =]

I liked how I'm literally a bug. xD
(Also, that's where the definition bug came from, so... extra cool points xD)

funny concept, but i couldn't really get into it. very simple and not especially rewarding.

Fun to play, I enjoy stealth games like that. Graphics were cool, sound was cool, the only downside I can think of is that it doesn't match the theme that much, but either way, it's still a cool game!

Very well balanced; tricky but not impossible. Graphics are very good too. Sound a little repetitive but helps to build up the tension so I like it.

The music loop was far too short, but I liked the mechanic. After a couple of levels though there really isn't anything new to see.

It's a very fun puzzle game. Unfortunately only 3 levels for now. Need moar :)

Hey! That's a good one, I like the games that go straight to the point, it's fun and engaging, with better graphics you got it!
Need more levels! :D
Congratulations!

Quite original! Nice level design also.

Cool idea, but it was frustrating when you realized you needed to backtrack to get higher lvl and then running out of time because of it.

I really enjoyed this! I wanted more levels to play! Good use of clear unambiguous graphics to convey gameplay meaning.

If it only had more levels :<

Solid gameplay and needed some memorization to know where the light beams change direction. Nice graphics!

The background music was a little annoying. The game was short, but it was fun. Great job.

Apr 28, 2012 @ 1:45pm

Good game, made me realise again that I'm not very good at games. Nice innovation and good concept

That was funny, I got to level three but kept failing so I quit. The music is fantastic, very reminiscent of Steve Reich. I could listen to that all day, and it really fit the world of a circuit board. The character design was pretty hilarious for the bug , I especially enjoyed the letters made of bugs on the interstitial screen. The stage looked fine too, although the typeface seemed to clash with your hand-drawn style. The roaming lights were ok, although I couldn't quite tell what they were supposed to be. As far as game feel, there were a few times where my movement latency was really high when turning left then right then left then right. If this is intentional, like some sort of "stumble" mechanic, maybe you can visualize a clumsy effect over the bug's head? Overall, it was pretty cute 2D stealther.

A charming little game, mostly because of the character graphics, and the way they're used to write words. :) I played to the fourth level, but the game is not very forgiving and it's actually pretty hard to time the hacking since you have to remember where the unit tests turn around. So I did get fed up. :)

Nice game! Stressful : p The music is a bit repetitive but good game overall ; )

Nice game! I wish there was some way other than memory to know how much every "detector" moves (maybe a rail on the roof from which they move or something) so I could do a little more planning on where to stand. Other than that, great job!

I don't think I really 'got it'. I guess I'm missing something.

Gameplay is really cool. I would like to use WASD keys too! Music is kind of repetitive after a while. Keep up the good work!

Love a good hacking/stealth game. Good level design really makes this. I really enjoyed playing. Seemed like the hitbox on the player was maybe a tiny bit big, and I'm only pointing that out because I can't think of any other issue.

Good job!

I like the art and concept, but the music got annoying fast and I found the game became very tedious when the "hacking levels" were introduced. Great job though! :)

Nice little virtual insect stealth hacking game!

Great game, well done. I really wanted to hack the level 3 computer!
