JayExcitIf you have ever wanted a game to look more like work so that you could play in the office without fear of someone glancing over your shoulder and seeing particle effects shooting toward all edges of your computer screen while you're dodging asteroids and flying monkeys, then this is for you.

Excit is a puzzle game similar to the previously reviewed Orbox and Orbox B, which were both clones of Roadblocks, set on top of a page from a spreadsheet. The game includes a variety of extras that make each level increasingly more difficult and compelling to play. A level password system allows you to continue a game at a later time, and though the game asks for your name to start with, there is no integrated save system in place.

The game was created by Krystian Majweski and team from Creative Units, a German company that does development and research of computer games. It was designed as a small viral Flash game for a company that was bought up before the game was published, but the authors have made the game available to play anyways, since it is a finished piece of their work. And it's quite nice, too.

Play Excit

Cheers to Wouter for suggesting this one. =)

I really like the artistic-design of this game, I'm just sick of the game mechanics, it's not really any better than what it is a clone of.

I sorta wish they had used the spreadsheet design for a more unique game mechanic.

Otherwise, cool.

I enjoy games like this a lot. The levels were all pretty easy, (I did get a little bit stuck at Level 21), but it was still fun to play.

I somehow find this a lot more appealing than Orbox, once the more interesting objects (like the acceleration arrows!) come into play. The large playing space allows for some interesting, non-obvious level design. And the presentation could hardly be better. Two thumbs up from me.

Come to think of it, I would get a kick out of seeing a dungeon exploration game like NetHack or Dwarf Fortress done with this visual style and peppered with cheesy Microsoft references. The giant paper clip could be a boss.

The lack of a good save feature (and I don't count passwords as "good save features", they're more like cheats to skip what you've done instead of saving your progress) bothers me.

Otherwise fun.

I'm stuck on Level 25 myself (how many leveles are there again?).

I know I must be getting distracted by things I should't aim for - but I'm always ending up with the key in the middle of the screen that I cannot reach....

I love this game. Got to level 22 before I quit from frustration. (The good kind of frustration.) Very much like Orbox, but I love the stylesheet and larger playing area. The sound effects are sweet too.

The "Replay" at the top of my page was "Feed Me" by Nitrome. Interesting, since it uses the same "Exit" icon.

Bonus points for intergame graphic spotting!

Psychotronic:

Yeah! Exactly, there are far too few reimplementation of nethack in a creative way, yet most game sites have a version of this game mechanic. That's a good idea. Really good.

Well, maybe the creators are reading this and would consider it.

Any Help for 23, or is there a Walk through available?

I must be insane, but I can't see the way to 20. As far as I can tell

You need to use the arrows at P8 to crush the block at S8 so you can get through the teleporter from the right

But I can't figure out

How to get to Row 8 to use it

Any help with whatever I'm not seeing?

Ok, like I said earlier, I could use some help. Any suggestions on 26? I can get all of the MIS logos but I cannot seem to find a way to the exit.

I like games with this pace (I'm older and retired). I honestly think it stretches the brain. I got up to level 18 on this one. I prefer puzzles to click and shoot although my favorite (free flash) sports game is 3-Putt at www.stmulligan.com

Keep up the reviews. It's a good way to find interesting games.

ixidorsbane: try working backwards in level 26 (figure out how you'll get to the exit first, and plan around it). I did most of the levels this way, actually.

I really cannot figure out 25. The only way I can see to get teh key in the middle is to stop on a block that is only reachable by going through an acceleratoe that burns up the block. Help!

Anyone help with 24? It's driving me crazy. Not as crazy as 21, but I got 21. PLEASE HELP WITH 24!

Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

hmm. i'm still not getting level 26. tried to work backwards from the exit.

from left: no, left window border.
from top (b8): would mean coming from left window border.
from bottom: would mean having to get to stand still at b13, not possible.
from right: would mean coming from m11, would mean coming from top window border.

what am i missing??

is there anything about the acceleration arrows i don't understand? i can only use them to smash the brick they are pointing towards, right?

and what about the key? i can use it to unlock one of the two locks, but none of them seem to be significant to me.

please help... :)
