Darkness (maze game)

.... just a little mini game to test a concept :)

ARROWS turn which way you are facing

TAP (A) button to move in the direction you are facing

TAP (B) button to pick up a battery in front of you
... this increases the distance your flashlight will shine

The flashlight cannot shine thru walls.... ;)

There are a total of 5 batteries to find :)

ADDED 5 runes to find, just for fun :)

this is nice. the only concern i have is the weird shape of the vision "cone." it makes it look like theres a wall following you.

Thanky :)

.... walking thru a building in pitch darkness is VERY creepy... ;)

The terrain being blocky, the light does its best simulating shooting down a part of a hallway while still lighting up the nearby wall(s)

....also, if you go thru quickly, as you quickly pass by something you want, it become irratic and disorienting as you wildly miss it a few times as you circle around trying to get to it quickly...

I have navigated buildings in blackout situations, and i have tried to match the experiences i have had ...

I think movement would be more intuitive if it worked like this: First d-pad tap in a new direction: look there; following taps in that direction: move.
Tapping A to move feels strange.
Otherwise: I like "map discover" games :)
