JohnBfold1.gifWith a name like F.O.L.D. - Fantastic Olfactory Latrine Discoverer, you know something interesting has to be going on. This puzzle platform game by Cosine relies on just two mechanics to fuel its levels: picking up blocks, and folding the screen. By combining those in some seriously head-splitting ways, you get to figure out how to get from one side of the screen to the other, all in the name of making it to a single pristine bathroom fixture!

The [left] and [right] arrow keys move you back and forth one block at a time in F.O.L.D., and you automatically walk up single height ledges, so no need to worry about timing or precision platforming. Stand next to a movable block and press the [up] arrow to pick it up, then tap [down] to set it wherever you need. The [spacebar] activates fold, a limited use ability that essentially cuts and pastes a mirror image of one side of the screen to the other. F.O.L.D. also has great gamepad support, if that's more your style, but the game plays quite well with just a keyboard.

With those basic mechanics in place, F.O.L.D. proceeds to mangle your brain with tricky puzzle situations. Since you can only move up single height blocks, you have to watch where you step or risk getting stuck. The folding mechanic takes some time to get used to as well. F.O.L.D. does lack a certain spark that makes it one of those "gotta have" games, but its quiet brand of puzzle solving definitely has its place in the world. Sit down and get ready to scratch your head over these levels, and be thankful your latrine trips aren't this complex.

I'm not sure if it's just me, but it's just stuck on a "Press Start" screen. Nothing seems to work as the start button.

Walkthrough for the quest for the last buttons:

[X] - Start/Confirm
[Z] - Cancel

Nifty game! Hangs at the completion of level 3-10. : /
Is that level the last one perhaps?

Hm. So I noticed in the review that you can use a gamepad controller, so I hooked mine up and tried again. After configuring the controller (using the row of numbers across the top of the keyboard, not the number pad off to the side), I was able to [START] by pressing the button assigned to [PAUSE].

On the next screen, though, were three options: Play, Extras, and Quit. Something was making the >selection< indicator rapidly scroll through those three. I could not get it to sit still. Both times I attempted to hit [CONFIRM] when it came around to Play, I ended up selecting Quit.

Sounds like an interesting game, but the controls are such that I can't even get to the game.

Well that's odd.

The music in the game is 'deldee' by C418 from the album 'circle'. I wonder if C418 is aware of this.

Well anyway, these are the controls, from hitting every key on my keyboard basically:

X - Start/Confirm
Z - Cancel/Go back
Left/Right Arrows - Move left/right
Up/Down Arrows - Pick up/put down box
Spacebar - Fold *
P - pause while playing
Esc - pause while playing

* Hitting Space to fold brings up a little bit of a dialog asking you to confirm or cancel the fold. While in this sort of menu you either press X to confirm the fold, Z to cancel it, or the Left/Right Arrows to move the fold left or right.

It's an interesting game, all right - I've only gotten through the first two sets of ten and it's getting harder - but I'm not sure why the controls aren't explicitly stated.

Holy cow! Level 2-5 allots you two folds. I beat it in one!

And thank you very much, Aexis, for explaining the controls!

And now I'm stuck on level 3-4. Does anyone have any hints?

Power of the Post. It involved doing a thing I didn't realize I could do. :)

Blocks that you can pick up survive destructive overlay.
