You're an elite hacker, using your tiny avatar to explore a highly secure computer system -- try to locate Secret File X.13 before the system shuts down!
Reach the secret file at -Node 9- before time runs out, collecting batteries along the way for extra points.
Each mistake takes time off of the clock.
Click on tiles to move in a straight line. It's all about timing.
Click gates to hack into them and disable them.
Game design & Programming: Joe Lesko
Artwork & Music: Wormburn
NOTE ON CONTROLS:
I agree with some of the comments that it isn't a perfect mechanic, but the idea behind the delay and the straight-line movement was to focus the gameplay on timing puzzles where a little bit of planning (and patience) is important, versus turning it into a more vanilla arcade-style maze game. Thanks!
Bonus Tip: The delay doesn't happen if you make quick moves in succession.
