Kyhkyh_thecell_10.jpgYou're in prison. You can't help it, you're a convict; that's what convicts do. But then again, you're no ordinary criminal... your name is Sidney and you have special powers worthy of the X-Men: you can make a clone (or two) of yourself. As Kevin Glass' pixelated puzzler entry for the recent Ludum Dare, The Cell takes you through ten levels of prison escaping. Using the [arrow] keys to move around and [spacebar] to create a duplicate of yourself in whichever direction you are facing, it is your mission to have all the red buttons depressed to open the exit. Standing in your way is a small assortment of traps and dozing guards, who will wake if you enter an adjacent square (though not your clones).

It is no easy feat getting out of a prison cell again and again and again. There to aid you are your trusty clones, who follow your every move unless an object is blocking them, and wooden crates, which can be pushed around to serve several functions. Considering that this game can be finished in under an hour, this imaginary world must be filled with casual gaming felons who are imprisoned for no more than twenty minutes before they're out breaking the law again. How much time would you serve in this hypothetical place? Play through Glass' 48 hour creation and find out.

Game play is fantastic, puzzles are clever. I'd love to see this game be given more fleshing out - more levels (heck, even just a "you've won!" screen would be great), more mechanisms, maybe some achievements and secrets...
however, for a 48 hour game, I love it.

Excellent piece of work bearing in mind the time constraint!

Might be a good game. I can't tell seeing as I can't get past level 2... Am I an idiot or just missing something obvious?

No mention of DROD anywhere in the review? Seriously?

An excellent idea that would benefit greatly by having higher resolution graphics, more levels and a bit of tidying up of its user interface.

Yep, like baba44713 I too was expecting roaches, tar, Halph and a Slayer to appear at any moment. :)

When I press [spacebar], nothing happens. I can move around with the [arrow] keys just fine, but no clones. So, not such a great gaming experience. :( Anyone else having this problem?

Is there a way to restart the game without refreshing the page? Alternately, is there a way you can get an ad network that only accepts audio ads with sound buttons? The ads are annoyingly loud and there's no way to turn their sound off... and if there's no way to restart the game without seeing it every time, well, that's a bummer, because this website seems to have cool games.

I did get it to work on my mac, but it was using Safari. I came across one issue, when I closed the game it made my sound go off until I manually quit the java application. Other than that it does work.
