Any volunteers to test some maps? Let me know here. You will get the pc-dev-editor where you can test and even create your own maps, all on the fly in WYSYWYG-style. It will be accessible to dedicated people pretty soon.
I am doing some music tests while solving a level. So I share it with you. There is a brief vid-description shortly explaining the goal of the game. The simple game rules will be explained in detail soon, but you can already shape a picture;)

Let me know how you like that by your impression:


I am showing an example for a pure action/dexterity level. Check this out and let me know your impression;) The main focus of the game is technical excellence and game-design.

Looks like a pretty neat puzzle game. You really like to emphasize the perfect controls huh? :P

so .. what's special about that? that's like a rythm game "press button X at Y time"

it's lacking interactivity, because you're just following a preset route

The introduction series has started. It is very important to  explain the game in just few lines of code, ehhh I mean text. I try to keep it as simple as possible but keep all the necessary information.

Let me know I made a good job in making you understand so far.

did a good job explaining the gameplay functions

The vids are especially usefull for testers.
Next one: Crystal-Blade and a hint:
I decided to not explain how the game-logic works in further detail because I don't want some "clone-devs" to steal and ruin the idea. But this enemy is simple and already understood by watching some gameplay: Now enjoy some fun with Venus Flytrap;)

now, that's looking like something. color me impressed
And what about sweet colors of gameplay? Do you see it:P

A composer of mine asked me to make a new gameplay-vid featuring his music. So I designed a new test-map this night on the quick. I want gladly to share it with you. I put a bonus section just to provide some inspiration in one slap at the end. It features Tokinsom's Minitroid track and an action-driven solution approach. Be prepared to discover something new so check it out. Don't be lazy and let me know how you like it:P

Now Crystal-Thief is presented. I hope he is well understood. It is a very important enemy-type. Enjoy watching some interesting concepts.;)
There is only one more intro left and you officially know how everything works. If you are interested feel free to read my youtube-channel-description about the editor and fan-levels related stuff.
Now enjoy some sweet gameplay candy;)

Venus-Flytrap: Finished Intro
This is the last intro vid. You now officially know the rule-set and can roughly estimate some qualities of the game. I wanted to make it a bit of a lesson in addition. So there is certainly something to learn from it.

If you like grid-based puzzle and/or dexterity games, this game will make you happy.;)

Now I am searching for interested testers who are also allowed to create their own fan-maps. Despite its small space TrapThem offers you maximum game, so much to discover. If you are interested then feel free to convince yourself. Just contact me on youtube or RetroAdvance@web.de.

These are some of the test-levels:


Do you have a beta that people can play - minus the need for continuous feedback?
Looks like something I wouldn't mind messing around with but don't really have the time to be an official tester of sorts.
Super Secret Area - Dead Ahead!
I was also just curious: Are you likely to implement a timer feature?  It seems that with some of the levels having multiple ways to be completed, there may be some room for competition.

There is no need to test for bugs. I just want to see how you approach the game. Just play it after you watched the intro-vids or play it simulaneosly to verify the current intro-vid you are watching. Just play the stuff that appeals most to you and report me your experience. That is all I want.

It shall please several tastes. If you like slow-paced puzzle-challenges requiring creativity and heavy analytical thinking to be solved then try "thiefwork4" or "guillotine1/2". If you like action try "teamwork" and "thiefguide1". If you like stealth and deflection there is the "stealth"-series to start with. However start with easy maps like "bottle" before approaching more advanced stuff.
