  • Stat screen is not skippable, yet! :)
  • The source will be released with the full game.

Can you help me? Could you please answer these questions?
  • Did you like the demo? :)
  • What are your computer specs? What kind of graphics card and CPU do you have, and how much RAM; which operation system do you use, etc.
  • How much FPS did you have? It's in the lower left corner of the screen.
  • Have you found any bugs? If yes, what happened?

P.S. By the way, you don't have to register to post comments below! ;)


  1. Did you like the demo?

    So far it is pretty nice!
    Somehow I don't like the controlling of the player. Sometimes I have to press twice to move back or so.

    What are your computer specs? What kind of graphics card and CPU do you have, and how much RAM; which operation system do you use, etc.

    Acer Laptop:
    Intel Celeron 2 * 2,2 GHz
    Intel GMA 4500M
    2 GB Ram
    Windows 7

    How much FPS did you have? It's in the lower left corner of the screen.

    180 to 250
    You should make the number last a while (1/2 sec) so one can really see the fps. It changes too fast.

  2. Thanks for the testing and feedback! :)

    - Yes, other players also had problems with the contols, so I've fixed this today, it's more responsive by now.

    - 180 to 250 FPS sounds good to me. I guess there were no lags then. And yes, I've already changed the FPS number refresh rate to 500 ms today. I didn't know it was hard to read because I had a constant 1000 FPS here.

    Also, there will be much more content (levels, enemies, etc.) in the next version!

  3. Thanks a lot, I wish to learn about id pathfinder, could you let me see de source code of that?
    Really thanks

  4. Sure thing, I can send you the whole source + media package (~23 MB), if you're interested. Just e-mail me at 'easy82 [dot] contact [at] gmail [dot] com'.

  5. Awesome. I just started my first SFML game also. I want to see how you implemented the maze. I will hit you up with an e-mail for a copy as well.

  6. Game test:

    i3 2.1 Ghz
    Geforce 330M
    windows 7

  7. @Anonymous: Thanks for testing!

    @Kolia S.: Sure thing! I'm gonna check my e-mails soon.

  8. It is very nice.

    ~500 fps
    Intel Core 2 Duo 2.20Ghz
    2 GB Ram
    Geforce 8400 GS
    windows vista 32 bit

    And can I have the source code please? Thanks :D
    I sended you a mail.

  9. Okay! I've sent you the source (the new one). Because there were a beta demo since this alpha release! :) There were many improvements and changes in the code and files since then.

  10. Where's the source code? I couldn't find it in the Windows download :(

    1. I'm going to send it to you via e-mail.

    2. ...But you need to send me an email first because I've just realized I don't have yours. :) By the way, there is a beta demo already (it was released at Christmas).
