somethingamiss.jpgJohnBSomething Amiss is an online adventure game created by Tucker Bowen to promote his book of the same name. It has a distinctly classic Lucas Arts adventure flair with surprisingly good visuals. Two chapters have been released so far and Tucker has incorporated user feedback to make the experience as satisfying as possible.

The first chapter sets the stage and has you trapped in a dark, mysterious laboratory. Search the lab for clues to why you're alone and try to find a way out. It's a very short chapter and there isn't very much to do, but it's a good introduction to the series and gets you yearning for the next installment. Also, you'll need to remember a password at the end of Chapter 1 so you can play Chapter 2.

The second chapter in Something Amiss fleshes out everything that made the first one good and cleans up quite a few of the interface issues. After escaping the MRI room, Alice discovers she's no longer in Washington D.C., instead she's lost in the jungle. There's a lot more to explore in this chapter and the puzzles are more intricate.

To play the games, simply use the cursor to guide Alice around the environments. When you see an object you'd like to examine, use, or talk to, click and hold over it to bring up a small menu. A handy save feature is available for both titles, just hit the [esc] key any time during play.

Analysis: Something Amiss does a great job taking the classic adventure formula and turning it into a casual online experience. The story is filled with mystery, though it feels a tad cliche at times. It's early, though, and I feel there will be a lot of surprises in store. Some players have experienced a few minor interface glitches, so make sure you have the latest version of Flash and try a different browser if you continue to have problems.

Now, three(!) great adventure games packed with mystery:

You actually don't need a triangle gate, if there ever was one. I didn't use it.

Naz Nomad

For the Bug you need to get the compass. Open both gates for the Star and Square and then open the circle. Then you can close both square and star gates (in that order) and then go back into the crevace, down the rope and youll be able to get the compass. Oh and memorize that 7 digit #

I think the first game was maybe shoddy, but it got me interested enough for the second, which is much better.
Speaking of which, I'm stuck at the waterfall:

I have the white mushrooms and the beetle, plus a rock to grind them with in the bowl, but I can't get the flowers from the cliff.

Anybody finished that can help me?
Also, for those looking for the triangle dial:

I'm pretty sure there isn't one. You don't need it.

A few other tips:

The beetle's in the heart of the jungle (east), but you'll need a compass.
Also, dials can close some gates while opening others.

I'm also unable to find the triangle wheel or the white mushroom for that matter but as for some insight into finding the bug...

Hi folks,
Thanks for playing the game. I fixed the bugs that were reported so if you reload the game it should play smoother now. (For the next chapter I'll widen the beta test pool before the wide release...a few bugs slipped past me. The hazards of a one man development team!)

I'm also posting a hint guide in a couple of days if you get really stuck.

Hello, Tucker;

You've put a lot of work into this game, and it shows. Nice graphics, good smooth animation, and an interesting storyline all make for an entertaining game. Just a couple of small things I'd like to mention:

- the loading time between scenes can get really frustrating, and it probably says more about us as (impatient) players than your programming talent. I'm not a programmer, so I don't know if these transitions can be made faster. It's unfortunate; the waiting detracts from the gameplay flow.

- the animation of Alice, the gorilla, and other moving objects (fire, river) is lovely and smooth (perhaps a bit slow, but there's that impatient player speaking up again!) Yet I was struck by how artificial the woman in the bed seemed when compared to the other elements. Actually, I thought I was going to discover I had been speaking with a robot (and wouldn't that have been a neat little plot twist!) Perhaps she needs a little tweaking?

In all, a really nice example of point-and-click gameplay. I look forward to seeing chapter 3 soon.

Cheers,
- Merricat

@ All who seek the compass:

There is more than one way to go into the ruins.

You have to control the dials so that the way to the ladder and the medicine cave is clear

You have to have outline circle and solid square set.

You also need to have the rope (where the circle dial is) and a torch

You need to climb down the cave that is dark.

If that isn't enough, read chunli99's comment at 5 PM on Mar. 30th.

@ Uberchild:

Where else have you seen a 7 digit number?

These numbers aren't just any ordinary phone number.

At the square dial, you will see a 7 digit number. Push these numbers in that order in the passage.

If you did everything correct, you should see a new opening. Don't forget to go in there!

@ Ash:

You will need to find something that can act as a torch.

What are the base necessities for a torch?

A wooden stick can be found in front of the dark cave (You will need to do some hunting around) and a fire can be found near the gorella. Of course, that would mean that you will need to ensure you can get past the gorella first.

As for the ladder part, I won't answer. Wait until you get the torch and can climb down into the crevice, and then see what you can think of.

Okay, I know by know that you have to be facing east in the Jungle to get the bug, but where the heck is the bug on the freaking screen? I've tried putting the tape down on the log, but whenever I move my cursor out of the inventory, it converts back into a directional arrow. What should I do?

Also, the compass is acting kind of weird, and told me I was facing south twice when I was finding my direction. Did it do that for everyone else?

look at the floor near the stone collem in the room that appears when you press the roman numberals and if its not there maybe you already took it and if you dont have it and its not there well... all i can say is restart the game or load from a previous save.

Daniel:

To get the rope move the stone dial with the star to the star that is not filled in but make sure that you switch the square one to then it should be open so you can get the rope and get to the circle dial.

NOTE: the rope is used for getting the red flowers from the water fall and its used to go down the cave.

ok i figured out the indigo bettle thing in the forest

try to follow the compass

you have to go to the left of where the compass is pointing

for example if the needle is facing north you would go east and if the needle is facing south you would go west.

@ Lenny

There is more ways to be in the dark than just a cave.

Like under a rock, for example.

You can not access this rock at the beginning of the game, because a spider is on it. You need to do some other things and wait until it gets off

If you still can't figure where I'm talking about, it's in FRONT of the dark cave.

@ dullpunk
You'll need to explain a bit more than that. If it's an in-game stuck, you can read Tucker's guide. If it's an applet stuck... well, you would have to explain anyways...

I love this type of games, but this one just left me with a "meh" feeling.

I am at odds why, though. The graphics are good, although the movement of the characters and some of the animations are really amateurish. But that's not what is really wrong with this game.

I kinda don't like the puzzles. The worst bit is manipulating those gates - no feedback, no apparent logic and confusing perspective make this easy puzzle downright irritating. Top that with the fact you have to traverse five-six locations between tries, it really misses the mark.

I am still gonna check out Chapter 3. But so far, even though a lot of work has seemingly been put into this, I am not that excited with the result.

Lets clear up some things here...

@ kolalana:

You need to find a power cord... but this said cord is well hidden.

In fact, its underneath the floor.

You need to use the grate on a loose tile to reveal this said prize.

@ Raven:
You know how to access inventory, right? Well, you need to HOLD down the left button on the compass when you are in the jungle, and then pull it onto the left button that pops up (it should look like a hand) in order to use it. Oh yeah, you have to depend on the compass: directions are not normal here.

Tucker,

I just wanted to say that I really like this game and am looking forward to subsequent chapters. This is the first game of it's kind that i've beaten (almost) without a walkthrough. The only part I had trouble with was finding the room to get the compass, but that was due to my lack of realizing there's more than one room off of the main entrance of the fort. Great job thus far!

Walkthrough

It's my first one, so don't be too strict.

When you exit the lab, you have to find an expedition journal, to get acquainted with what you are supposed to do.

1. Go down and talk to the sick lady until she fells into a coma (sounds great:)) Take there sedatives from the cabinet. Go up. You may take the soda near the lady's bed - but it won't be needed.
2. Take a banana near the entrance to the lab. Peel it. Use some sedatives to guarantee sweet dreams to the monkey. You may take a coconut. Go up
3. Take a stick near the entrance to the cave. Go to the right
4. Approach the monkey with your small present - banana + pills. After it fells asleep go up, were the light is.
5. Put your stick into the fire and make a torch. Grab the log.
6. Put the log into the water when you are on the bank of the river (to the right from the monkey). Now you can go up/down the current. Get on the log and go to the left.
7. You see a gecko. Forget it till the level 3 is ready. Go to the left again.
8. You are in the dead/lost (or how do you call it) city. Turn the wheel (star). Go to the right into the pass, which opens.
9. Memorize the numbers carved on the rock - 7531246. Turn the other wheel (square). Go back and turn the wheel (star) again. Then go to the left.
10. Enter the ruins and take the rope. Turn the third and last wheel (circle). Go to the left and enjoy the music :)
11. Go to the right to enter the storage. Pick up all that you can. Later you will need only the bowl and the medical tape from the left shelves. Don't eat the mushrooms! :)
12. Return to the star-wheel. Open the pass and close the square-wheel. Then close the star wheel again. Do it!!! It's really needed to find the compass
13 Return to the river, get onto the log and go to the right to the waterfall. Get the red flowers with the help of the rope
14. Go to the cave, where the stick was. Enter it. Use the rope to go down. You are in the storage again. This time you may take the mushrooms. But you really do not need them :)
15. Go to the room with the circle-wheel and go down the stairs there. It will be possible only if you have closed all the gates, as it was told.
15. Dial the combination that was carved on the rock (7531246) and enter the secret pass. Pick up the compass and go back to the entrance of the cave.
16. Hallelujah! The spider is gone. Take the rock, where it was and the white mushroom. Go to the lady. There you shod go to the right to the jungle.
17. Find the bug in the heart of the jungle with the help of the compass (always go east) (right-left-left-up-right-up). Catch it with the sticky medical tape and get back to the lady again.
18. Put the flower, the bug and the white mushroom into the bowl and smash it with the rock you have. Give this to the lady. Talk with her. GAME OVER :(

I really like this one! The way the character actually moves around the screen reminds me of Pricilla Gone Missing. It's also challenging but not so stumping that I have to look at spoilers.

Oh, and kudos on the site, Jay! I use it all the time and I've never really complimented you on it. (That's an understatement. I think I've seen three different layouts for it since I found it!) I'm a huge point-and-click/escape-the-room junkie, and I always check your site for the best ones. =]

Suus,
You must have at least Flash 8 to play. 9 is better. Also, the game works best on Firefox. If you're still having trouble try emptying your browser and reloading.

Hope that helps!

Hi Tucker,

I am using Firefox and I have Flash 9. I eventually got the game to load, but could only play part 1. After that I got the "in between screen," but clicking on "Play part 2" (the button on the bottom) had no effect.

I enjoyed part 1, so I guess I'll try to see if I can get to part 2 some other time.

Hey, this is a great game, but I have had to resort to the hints and this page to help me find the compass. I have pushed the numbers on the pillars with the code, I hear the windy noise, but darned if I can find this secret passage that holds the compass. I have re-entered the code a few times, and still no compass in sight. Is there a glitch? Help!! please SOS, this is driving me crazy! Where is this secret passage with the compass in it?

If you hear the windy noise and there's no passageway you must have pushed the numbers in the wrong order. After the windy noise push the buttons in the correct order and the entrance should appear. It's fairly obvious when it opens.

Good luck!

I think I'm going to make Chapter 3 the grande finale of the 'Something Amiss' series. I've realized it's too difficult to keep releasing chapters in a timely manner.

I'll still be making adventure games in the future (already got a few ideas) they'll just be standalones so the player doesn't feel stranded on a cliffhanger.

Nothing wrong with a good cliffhanger. It's good to hear you're making more adventure games, Something Amiss is the best point and click I've played since the Chzo Mythos quad and I'm definitely looking forward to more games of this quality. This is how point and click adventures are meant to be. Cheers.

For starters, I found this to be a very enjoyable game. This was one of the rare cases that a point-and-click game had good logic to it, to the point where I didn't have to use a guide/walkthrough to solve its puzzles. That is until

the maze puzzle to enter in the 7 digit code

Not that I had any trouble with the puzzle per se, rather when I tried to leave.

I was unable to do so because the gate to leave the maze was raised, and I could not climb back up the rope.

Now, this is partially my fault because I didn't think the puzzle the whole way through. No offense intended, but if I could have

climbed back up the rope,

I wouldn't have gotten stuck. :(
However, I tried to start a new game to make up for my mistake... and I ended up in

the compass room

with Alice floating in mid air! :P

Making a game as good as this has to have room for mistakes; I don't blame the developer for that, but if it wouldn't be too much trouble, it would be nice if they fixed it so that other people don't run into that problem. Future players and I would really appreciate it. :)

(P.S.) By the way, I think the third chapter's out now. :)

Ok, I feel like a pretty big idiot right about now. First, I'll apologize for posting twice in a row. Second, I'll apologize for misreading the hints and assuming chapter 3 was out. Very sincere apology to anyone who may have read that and got their hopes up. Finally, sorry that I didn't realize that you can

climb back up the rope

in a normal game; the little red arrow didn't show up in my first game, only when I successfully started a new game. I'm really very sorry. :(

Hi all,
I'm hard at work on chapter 3. It will come out this summer as forecast. As usual, I had to up the ante and make it even bigger than chapter 2, so it's taken me a lot longer than I initially anticipated. But I think you'll find it worth the wait...at least I hope so.

Thanks for playing.

How do you access chapter two? I just finished chapter one and I'm just sitting on the page showing the "welcome to chapter 2" title. I've reloaded the game too, to see if that fixes it. I'm in Firefox, using Flash 9 and I see I'm not the only one with this problem.

Hi folks,
Thanks for playing the game and your patience with an occasional long wait time. (I believe my host provider went down for a little while in September.) If the game gives you any trouble try refreshing your browser's cache. That usually helps.

Chapter 3 is finished and is undergoing extensive beta testing. I hope to release it near the end of October 2008. So you won't have much longer to wait for the final installment.

I don't know if anyone here has ever played Sherwood, a non-register MMORPG made by Maid Marian productions (or whatever they are called) - anyway, some of the music is definitely the same as the dungeon music.

I just thought it was a wicked cool comparison to make. LOL.

Chapter 2 seems to be down. Any chance of it coming back?

I enjoyed the first chapter, short though it was, and like others have said I found it very intuitive. The gameplay mechanic is well done, and the puzzles actually made sense. Too many point and click games make you hunt for pixels and do absolutely ridiculous things to proceed, necessitating a reliance on walkthroughs or just plain giving up in frustration. If more games in the genre were more like this one, I'd play them more.

Looking forward to more.
