A downloadable game for Windows

You must escape from the pause screen from Battletoads...again!

A glitch game and the sequel to my first game ever...5 years later! That mad pause tune will never end!

The point of the game is figuring out how to play. Do Not Spoil The Surprises! It uses keyboard and mouse. If you are frustrated, there is a Help Screen (hold "H") that may aid you. Fullscreen is recommended, but F11 will toggle windowed mode.

Thanks forever to Idle Thumbs. This was created for the Final Wizard Jam X! I will miss this jam & the community. Thanks everyone for encouraging me to make games!

I actually managed to complete it, I think. I reached the credits, anyway. That was interesting. I saw this on Alpha Beta Gamer, and wanted to try it for myself.

One question: How are you supposed to quit the game? At the credits, I hit esc, and couldn't answer true. Or am I missing part of the game still?


Yep! You beat it! Thanks for playing and I hope you liked it! Check out some of my other games, Bone Warper is puzzley/glitchy as well!

It should quit if you hit Esc and then "T".

I couldn't figure out the whole thing, but this is another excellent PSFBT entry! Really clever puzzles and an effective hacker feel. Just waiting for the walkthrough!

Thanks! I'm glad the puzzles work, and that I've got/faked a good hacker feel. I basically started with "wouldn't it be weird if you could do this here" and built the puzzles around that!

I'll give you a hint for the place you are stuck over on the forums! (Tho I will give hints to anyone who needs them here too)

lol this looks cool. can't wait to try it : )
