Trapped Part 2: The Dark


| Comments (182) | Views (227)

PsychotronicTrapped Part 2:The DarkRodrigo Roesler of Rabbit Tell has released Trapped Part 2: The Dark, the middle installment in a trilogy of puzzle adventure games distinguished by a literary flavor and an unusual perspective. The Dark, like The White Rabbit before it, gives you a third-person isometric view of the story. You move your well-dressed, blank-faced character by clicking on the floor where you want him to stand, or on the object you'd like him to investigate. Helpfully, your pointer will turn red when it rolls over things in the environment you can affect directly.

Use objects you've found by clicking on your "items" tab to bring up your inventory, then on the item you need, and finally on whatever you'd like to use it on. You can't combine items directly, so often you'll need to utilize several objects in turn to solve complex problems. Using the [i] key to raise the inventory menu and [T] to put away items in hand will make your life easier.

I also recommend selecting "zoom" on the "options" tab as soon as humanly possible, in order to save yourself some unhealthy squinting. Those of you who had your eyeglass prescription permanently altered by the last game may now breathe a sigh of relief.

Play all the games in the Trapped series:
Trapped: The White RabbitTrapped: The DarkTrapped: The Labyrinth

Analysis: This series has a lot more in common with the old Infocom text adventures than it does with modern point-and-click games. Rather than relying on abstract puzzles and thorough visual investigation, the Trapped games plop you in a mundane environment, lavish you with a huge inventory, and then ask you to be extremely clever.

You'll have to become the MacGyver of amnesiac adventure game heroes, usually making the best out of what you have, since few of the items you'll find look like keys that fit specific locks. Of course, everything in The Dark does have a purpose, but sometimes you'll feel like you're just picking up random bric-a-brac and contraptioning your way through the game. It's refreshing.

The downside is that the logic of the game world isn't entirely consistent. Some of the puzzles require knowledge of the real world, while others require a kind of dream logic, and it's difficult to know what type of problem-solving you need to apply when. Sometimes you won't even know what obstacle you're supposed to be tackling. If you enjoy having your brain stretched in surprising directions, you might love it. But it also might prove very frustrating.

Just remember that nearly everything you see or read is an important clue, even if it just looks like a touch of atmosphere.

Of course, text adventures had one giant advantage: the length of time it took to do anything was exactly equal to the time it took to type it. Here, you have to watch your hero amble slowly from place to place, often without knowing if you're making progress. Thankfully, Roesler confines the opening puzzles to a limited area, but by the end of The Dark, you'll once again be wandering around a giant maze of rooms any time you want to try a new tactic. It must be possible to fix this without sacrificing the series' distinctive style.

Play Trapped Part 2: The Dark

Zoya - for times like that when a file won't complete loading, chances are something interrupted the download the first time and corrupted the file.

Sometimes the only way to correct that is to empty your browser cache and try reloading the page again.

OK - my very first reaction is that either I'm missing out on something very badly or I'm really meant to spend more than 20 minutes trying to explore "for the umpteenth time" 2 very small chambers where i can collect a handful of - so far - useless staff plus drag a mirror here and there.
Not a very welcoming start to a game.

I am completely stumped. I'm

in the house, missing the third piece to the heart box, and with two locked doors and one without a handle. I've made a ton of useless phone calls (at least they seem useless) and I am at a loss as to what to do next. I've tried everything I can think of - and I'm sure I've overlooked a small detail - but that detail is eluding me. And I've yet to figure out the concrete sphere.

To get the last piece of the heart you need to

get past the door with no handle.

To do that, you'll need to make a particular phone call, but

it won't work unless you're wealthy

Hi all, I'm Rodrigo, the creator of the game. I saw the comments and thought of clearing a few things out. :)

For those of you who ae having trouble loading the game, the server's been very busy since the game release, and sometimes it gets very unstable. The game is not very big (about 1.5MB), and that's usually a question of refreshing the page. I'm really sorry for that, and I'm already negotiating a solution with my server.

bioLarzen, as for the newsletter, this is also in the hands of my provider, they still hadn't released me the mailing tool (I think they figure out I'm a spammer). The newsletter will be sent, but very very late, and I'm sorry for that too. :/

And, since I had a telephone with a simple script to make it work, there was no reason to not include various phone numbers - instead of just the ones you actually SEE in the game. I couldn't leave 911 out. Glad you liked it. :)

Thank you Psychotronic for the great review. After the first game, the dream-like puzzles were a conscious decision - we knew a lot of people wouldn't like them, but that was the style we wanted to follow. :)

Cheers, and good game to all. Sorry again for the problems we're going through.

i didn't use it, but when re-played again part two i found it in my inventory, as well as the lighter and the knife. i tried to put in the well, but a writing apperared: "i don't want to miss this coin" so i think it will be important in part three.

Anyway, I'm loving this game. The first one hurt my eyes, but the zoom on this makes it much nicer.

Not doing very well though.

Keep just wandering around the house. I've found the top piece of the heart, and am wandering about with a lighter, a book, a memo, a knife, a sphere, a dead frog, a newspaper, a bookmark, a spoon and a small key. Guy has big pockets.

@ b -

You need to move the large mirror over to the table - it will reflect under the table, then click the bar in the reflection.

@ Lune -

After you put the cabbage in the bowl, add the meat to mix. Leave for a bit, then come back. The dog will have taken care of his problem.

@ motc -

You have to be rich before you can get the credit card. To get rich, you have to make a wish.

What a great game!

I so do not agree with psychotronics review. (Sorry) I was frustrated a couple of times, yes, but the game had me continuing the search, and in the end I solved without help. The reason was that the game kept surprising me and switching directions. Easier games have made me give up, if they're not interesting, but I love this series, and it's very intense. Also there was clues from the beginning for the problems in the end, so I had a vague feeling to look for a creditcard, which was a cool subtle hint.

@ jojo -

The game takes some "normal" things and adds a psychological twist to them. "Creepy" is just the reaction of some - it's not horror, it's psychological thriller. And even the thrill is low-key, so don't let those comments keep you from playing.

The game is taking forever to load. Taking 5 minutes just to get to the progress bar and then hanging at about 6%.

Any info on what to do to make it load? I've tried clearing cache, and tried Firefox and IE.

have found 2 "easter eggs" in both games.. have you?

One Coin for each game title

Rabbit Coin

Dark Coin

a little pixel hunting to find them ... just a little logic involved too, and you'll have to use an object in each game to find the "eggs."

Wow just finished the game without any help. Took me about a couple of hours. I was stuck for lots of time at the beginning but I once I got outside the house it was quite easy because the puzzles are much more logical. Another great thing is that there's no point and clicking at all. The story is so interesting, too bad we'll have to wait a couple of months to play the last part.

It took me two hours to load this morning (I was doing other things while waiting), and... it was worth it. Great game.

And I thought the mix of ordinary and dream logic was just right, meaning that I only needed two hints to solve it; and sometimes when I did solve it I felt smart:

putting the mirror on the small table to find the rod under the long table [this was a little frustrating, since I thought I had it in the right place when it was in the light]

and

calling again for the credit card [and I felt dumb about not connecting this with wishing I was rich]

I really liked

throwing the little coin in the little well to get out of the sick room

Woohoo! finally solved it!! Took me about 1 and a half hours but it was fun!!!

important parts:the huge mirror can be use for 2 purposes..only the bank's number is important...throw all coins into the well....give the statue ice pick and frog and the frog comes to life....dog craps when he eats cooked veggies and meat.....frog tongue can reach the end of hole...attract with flies

I think Anonymous is joking about the dark coin and the football -- here's how you get the dark coin:

There's a blank book in the room with the books (the one behind the chained door). It's the book at the top of the table. Set fire to it with the lighter. Then click on it twice.

By the way, if you just follow the walkthrough you miss some of the story, not only can you read a bunch of the books but

in the room behind the brick wall, click on the papers on the desk

(I missed that the first time through, and it's really important)

after you get the red key, read the diary (it's not exactly the way it was in the first game

and

when you're in the space with all the doors, try knocking on the door to the bedroom

It adds a lot to the experience.

Really of two minds on this one, it was kind of all over the place, one minute light and humorous, the next minute gross, violent and creepy. I like the humorous and light better. I will definitely play part three though.

However, the game seems to freeze at 1/2 67% every time. When I refresh the page, it stays at 67% and the loader at the bottom says "(1 item remaining)".

I have tried closing and re-opening, diconnecting and then redialling the internet and other basic variations, to no avail.

Any ideas? Not being able to access the next part of the story is killing me!

Fun game with nice graphics and the few frustrations, like

having to feed the dog the cabbage BEFORE the meat

were mostly enjoyable, except, as I've mentioned here before, I HATE when solutions are not at all logical. Every time I have to consult the walkthrough, I feel a little stupider :). And when it turns out to be totally random and illogical

(why would you put the frog on the statue? why the concrete sphere in battery acid? why flies in the hole in the wall, although then using the frog mades a sort of sense)

, I feel cheated.
Nonetheless, looking forward to part 3.

Once you do that,

There is absolutely no point to this game, awful and confusing story line....why the heck did you end up killing this guy....hard time keeping becca and whoever straight. Don't know why everyone is in the hospital. I mean i have a general sense (because the father died) but who cares? bottom line is the puzzles make absolutely no sense. its a bunch of clicking around. Go left, go right...enter this room, enter that room...THUNDER LIGHTENING THUNDER THUNDER THUNDER. I muted my computer just so i could complete it. Waste of time. I kept on expecting somthing special to happen and it just went from one lame, confusing puzzle to the next. Thats the proble with these puzzle games that arn't professionally tested....THEY DON'T make Sense, thats the bottom lin, nothing beats real world puzzles, and they just don't recreate the feeling you get out of doing things in your own house/car/life. I can see what happens....the designer gets an idea for the puzzle in his head and works it out so that it makes sense to him. Problem with that is that it only makes sense to that person, its only logical to the creator. I have to give the game its due props for being challenging. BUt uggh, way to one dimensional, boring puzzles over and over, matching pieces with no rhyme or reason....hiring a writer might have paid off for this particular project. Anyone agree? no way this game deserves a 4.8....whats wrong with you people?

By the way I do not know where

to use the axe for the Rabbit Coin.

(By the way, the way I typed that text reminds me of a certain Jewish prayer that I forgot the name of.)

I'm still working to get the old one back.

While I've played most of the escape games listed here, I kept skipping over the Trapped series because, irrationally, the 3D perspective seemed really unappealing to me. Once I'd played through everything, I was jonesing for a good escape fix so I finally decided to give it a try.

Rodrigo, White Rabbit and The Dark are easily two of the best games in the genre. Just enough story to give me a reason to play, puzzles that are hard enough to be challenging, but logical enough to make walkthroughs almost unnecessary (ok, I confess, I needed help figuring out how to find the metal bar) attractive, immersive - a true 10 of a game.

For anyone who needs help with the five rings on the wall:

There are five rings on the wall, yes? There are also ten lines running through the rings. Each ring corresponds to one dial on the door lock, and each line corresponds to one number on each dial. You can tell which ring is which because the dials have various ring sizes next to them. Each ring has a little boxy thing on it, and each boxy thing is on a line. The boxy things are telling you which number corresponds to each dial.
Example: If the little boxy thing is on the top line and the biggest circle, then set the dial with the biggest ring next to it to 0.

Hope that wasn't terribly confusing!

Great game. I can't say I found any of it illogical.

Battery acid eats concrete --

if you don't know that, you should (high school science, real world experience, take your pick).
As for the

flies in the hole

, the game totally clues you in to this.

When you place the frog on the table near the flies, he tries to catch them but cannot. The game says his aim is bad, but "his tongue is very long". Everything else you try to stick in the hole is "not long enough".

5.0 / 5.0 for sure. I've gotta go play the 1st one now!

I'm trying to get the waterwheel to work and seem to have lost all of the waterproof glue. Every time I try to place the wooden board on the wheel, it drops through and I have to pick it up again in Room 2. Do I have to start over again? What am I doing wrong?

Came here accidently through Google and played both parts after each other and really loved it!
Just played a few escape games before, but these are really different, graphics are great, story is exciting, and it has enough surprises to keep you alert, also the gamemaker has a good sense of humor! Chapeau!
Can't wait for the next part.
Thx to all the people who helped each other, I needed the help to!

If it takes too long to load the game try turning your computer off and wait 10 minutes and then start the computer or laptop or imac etc. thats what i had to do because the game stopped loading at 67% and i got so fustrated! it should work because the computer might be tired! ( sorry if i made some spelling mistakes im not too good with spelling! )

Lol after seeing some of you doing it in less then 20 mins all on ur own i feel kind of stupid... i had to use the walkthrough MANY times and it took me over an hour to complete.

GREAT game i loved the joke with

"jumpman" the plumer

Can't wait for the third one, hope i can do it without so much use of a walkthrough!

I'm sooooooooo sorry to bother you with this question but.....
WHAT IS THE MAIN STORYLINE OF THIS GAME?!?!
When I played The White Rabbit, I got this wisely thought out, mysterious storyline that left a terrible(yet awesome) cliffhanger, but when I played The Dark, BAM! BAM! BAM! All of these answers that make me feel stupid when I don't understand them pop out at me! Then I feel mad at myself for not understanding the story, making me madder 'cause I'm anxious to know!
Please type out the story as smpily as you can so I can enjoy the next chapter in this wonderful series of games.
THANKS AHEAD!

Hey, I'm a Brazilian who speaks Portuguese and I can end the game using the spoilers. Why those who speak English can't? Read again if you do not understand the first time.

About the carved crystal puzzle. Here is a tip I got from another forum that finally gave me the answer to the puzzle. It drove nuts until I read this.

The smallest circle on the door represents the innermost circle on the diagram, so put the dial in the same position. Then continue in the same manner.

what a brilliant game.

dont forget about the coin:

found from the plant

there is a metal piece:

found in the sealed sphere

to unseal the sphere:

use the spilled batery acid

to end the game:

After step 5. Pick up magnifying glass on the table at back. Take small coin and small key from the model of the house. Enter the back room- the key is used automatically.

My key just don't open automatically. even i use the small key on it. It reads: It doesn't fit.
Is there more than 1 key or bugs in game?

The thing about

Using lightning to resurrect the frog isn't that much farfetched, since frogs can appear "dead" (no heart beat, cold body temp, etc.) but is only in a metabolic state similar to hibernation.

I'm not sure if that is correct, though, but it does seem like a stretch when there are no other hints pertaining to it. /geek
