The Button Affair

DoraIf someone has something you don't, that's a good enough reason to take it, right? Apparently so when you're too-suave-for-his-own-good Enzo Gabriel, who breaks into the lair of business tycoon Victor Meirelles to steal the other man's Button Gem for Enzo's own collection. And hey, Enzo's both deadly and light on his feet, so he should be able to evade the guards, booby traps, lasers, and other security measures with no trouble at all... you know, provided he can keep his hands to himself where femme fatales are concerned. The Button Affair is a free indie game of action and timing as you control Enzo's flight through Victor's headquarters. Enzo runs automatically, but you can use the right [arrow] to speed up, and the up and down [arrows] to jump or roll to dodge obstacles. If you're hit, Enzo will die in spectacular spy fashion, but he'll just get booted back to the last checkpoint you successfully activated, and since the hazards are always the same, you know what to expect.

The Button AffairStylish, snarky, and silly, The Button Affair is the perfect blend of cinematic spy camp and coffee-break sized action. Each chapter tells another snippet of the story in Enzo's increasingly personal duel with Victor, and the game's design is simply gorgeous. It's sort of impressive how expressive characters are with just their body language, considering they have no faces. It doesn't have a whole lot of replay value, and you'll need some quick reflexes and timing to conquer some chapters. But even if you're not normally a fan of this style of gameplay, The Button Affair is well worth experiencing for its beautiful design and execution. The creators are offering the game for free, but asking people who download and enjoy it consider donating a dollar or two to SpecialEffect, a charity dedicated to helping disabled gamers. So not only is it rad, it's rad for a good cause. The Button Affair is a simple idea to be sure, but typically executed very well and with charm to burn. Just be careful and keep your eyes open, since each chapter is a zone filled with... I don't know... danger. Hm. I wonder what you'd call something like that...

aaah I really want to play this game but for some reason it isn't working for me. It looks absolutely gorgeous, but freezes during the prologue whilst the girl in the red skirt waits beside the door - it won't go any further! Clicking any key to skip scene doesn't seem to be doing much either. Have I missed something?
Thanks! Praying for the power of posting....

This is a great game! You should develope it further into a longer game - it is way too short. I would love to see longer levels and more levels - although it would interfere with the storyline.
