AlexVolcaniaSomething is wrong in Volcania. A mysterious darkness has befallen the harsh, inhospitable home of a race called the Celheads, and you alone are left to unravel the mystery with only cryptic clues to guide you in this clever puzzle platformer from Koliomeno and Styxtwo.

Guide your hero using the [arrow] keys to avoid lava pits, spikes, and bullets in order to reach the exit. Not everything is completely straight-forward, however, as the control schemes shift with each level; left can be right, up can be down, or the number of moves available to complete a stage can be limited. The puzzles are shrewdly challenging, forcing you to use every tool at your disposal to progress, and the storyline is unique and engaging (though this installment does feel slightly like a prologue). There's no place like home (no matter how hostile and lava-spewing it may be) and there's no way you'll let Volcania fall without a fight.

Note: Make sure you have the latest version of flash installed for this one to avoid experiencing any gameplay issues!

Update: A new version has just been uploaded that fixes the issue with clicking onscreen objects when playing on a Mac.

Volcania WALKTHROUGH:

Level 1

Just use the arrow keys to navigate and jump to the door

Level 2

Just use the arrow keys to navigate and jump to the door

Level 3

The directional keys are reversed, otherwise straight forward finish.

Level 4

Drop off the ledge to the left and then immediately go to the right to land near the door, otherwise you can't make the jump.

Level 5

Go all the way to the lower right before falling off the bottom of the screen, then go right and fall again, door will be below you.

Level 6

Correct door is second from left on bottom.

Level 7

This time you're upside down, once you get used to it it's a standard finish.

Level 8

The red bar on the left shows the direction and intensity of the gravity for the level. Go to the right, hit the up arrow until you start floating up, and then go right. Lower the gravity to one notch below even, once you start to descend, go back to neutral or you'll fall into the lava. Once you get below the out cropping, start upping the gravity again. Navigate to the door.

Level 9

I think in this one you only get a certain number of jumps. Just go right off the top ledge, then make the jump from that ledge to the top of the next one, then don't jump again until right before you'd fall into the lava.

Level 10

On this one the screen unblacks as you move through it. Go left, make a jump at the end of the ledge. Jump up and to the left again, then fall down all the way on the left. Go right, jump over some lava twice, then up and to the left to get to the door.

Level 11

Just hold down the right arrow key until you get to the door, takes a while.

Level 12

Classic game of red light/green light, only move when the light is green or you'll have to start over. Once you've made it to the door you'll be at level 13

Level 13

You have to go back to the left to get to the door again, this time it doesn't matter if the light is red.

Level 14

This one is just a top down view, move your guy with the arrow keys to the door, disregard the camera.

Level 15

Exit to the left of the screen, enter from the right and go to the door.

Level 16

You cannot go left. Make the first jump to the right, then drop down to the narrow ledge below. Now just go right and jump as needed to the door.

Level 17

Get to the door before the timer finishes with 0

Level 18

Head towards the door, prepare for level 19

Level 19

Avoid the bullets which are coming slow early on. At around 5 they really pick up the pace, just keep avoiding but stay near the left side of the screen. When it gets to three, head to the other side of the screen but stay in the middle, then just make small moves to continue avoiding the bullets, stay out of the sides. Door will appear on right.

Level 20

Hit the up arrow twice, float to the top of the screen. Position yourself over the small platform in the lava and hit the down arrow twice. Now hit up arrow twice again and go left, just to the next outcropping though, go left once more to the next notch (not to the ceiling) and hit the down arrow twice. Now head left and hit the up arrow key twice as you start to fall, once over the door hit the down arrow twice to finish.

Level 21

Every time you jump you go a little higher, just keep jumping until you can complete the level.

Level 22

The mouse cursor acts as a flashlight, you have to go to the left side of the screen and up to complete this level.. ASDW keys work in this game too.

Level 23

This one is fun! The actions effect each dude, you need to drop down off the ledge to your left but then go right immediately so the guy doesn't land on the spikes. Jump over the spikes, then up onto the ledge to the left. Jump up to the next highest ledge, then down to the right one level, and then jump right to the door.

Level 24

Click on the door with your mouse

Level 25

Complete the level the first time and memorize your jump points, then do it again with the lava invisible.

Level 26

Right mouse click and select "Jump Higher" from the options.

Level 27

Click the center button, then all 4 corners, go to exit.

Level 28

Click the mouse to make platforms to jump on, then make a bridge across the top of the lava.

Level 29

This time you only get a certain number of clicks, so as soon as the level starts click below the character before he falls to the floor. Then place your other two platforms over the lava so he can cross to the other side.

Level 30

Jump as needed, avoid the spikes

Level 31

Hit the "HOME" button on your keyboard.

I got to the last level and was unable to complete it despite working out what I needed to do...

...because my netbook keyboard doesn't have a Home button.

I've since finished and closed the game, but for level 27 you might need to

right mouse click

If that's not it, then it's the one where you can

click on the screen to make blocks to jump on

It's the one with the nine monitors displaying white circles.

I'm stuck on Level 27 as well. I'm guessing I'm supposed to be able to click on the monitors, but nothing happens. I have the latest version of Flash, but I'm on a Mac.

For Level 27:

It's a "lights out" game (or "lights on" in this game?) Just click the boxes to turn the lights all yellow. This version is crazy easy, so it should only take you a few seconds.

Level 27 hints (in order of blatantness):

Turn all 9 circles yellow to proceed.

You (the blue Celhead) can't reach the monitors, but you (the player) can...

Four corners and the center.

I found this game fairly easy to complete, but then again, I've played quite a few think-outside-the-box-challenge games (Hoshi Saga, etc.). Less a platformer with puzzle elements, more a lateral thinking game with platforming as one of its input methods.

Haloinverse: I think I get it, but...

...nothing happens when I click the circles. Incidentally, the quit, restart, and other buttons on-screen don't work either.

@Haloinverse: Those hints didn't really help at all so I watched a walkthrough. I don't know how to get the ability to turn the circles yellow, I'm guessing it's one of the gameplay issues mentioned at the end of the post? Maybe I'll try updating flash.

Sounds like we're having the same problem SonicLover. I'm pretty sure everything is up to date and have tried in both Chrome (originally what I was playing in) and Firefox and it's not working. So I have no idea.

Controls stuck running to right on first level. Restarted. Checked for latest Flash version. No luck.

Looks to be interesting but apparently needs more testing.

For the record, I'm using Adobe Flash Player 11.1.102.55 on Google Chrome 15.0.874.121 (really, what purpose do those complicated version numbers serve?). I'm running on Mac OS X 10.6.8.

I tried running the game on Firefox 8.0.1 with the same results.

I think I read somewhere that in order to fix the sticking directional keys you need to RMC in the window and go to the global settings, then tell it to use unlimited memory or something like that. I've done it, and still experience this issue, but not nearly as often.

would really enjoy the game, but the interace bugs ruin it.
It seems to not be able to accept mouse clicks for certain things. Can never click the X or the mute or anything. This was a small annoyance until I got to level

27 which seems to require mouse-clicks to proceed

Clicking on this level doesn't work, so I can't keep playing.
Blergh.
In case it matters: Mac OS X 10.6.8, flash 11.1.102.55, Google Chrome 15.0.874.121

To those having issues: It looks like it's a Mac Flash Player issue. The on-screen buttons do not function for me in any browser on my Mac, but the buttons work consistently for me when running in any browser under Windows 7 (also on my Mac).

I'll write to the developer about it.

FYI, I found that I could make level 30 easier, if I

right-clicked. Really slowed down the level for me.

On german computer keyboards e.g. the "Home" Button is called "Pos1"

Not just mac, Linux ( fedora 13 with flash player 11.something ) gets stuck as well. You can play to the point where you have to use the mouse to click on the 3 x 3 set of squares with circles inside to lift the gate, and then you are stuck. Tried on both firefox and google chrome with no luck

Very creative! It reminds me of some other game.. not sure which, in the think-outside-the-box way. This was very unexpected for what seemed to be an action platformer game.

Having interface issues with level 28:

where apparently I'm supposed to be able to create platforms with mouse click? Well, I can't.

All the previous buttons worked for me (I'm on a Mac, for what it's worth), but not this level.

[I've sent this bug report on to the developer to recheck that level. Thanks for the note. Hopefully we'll have a fix soon. -Jay]
