Explore a labyrinth of perplexing puzzles in this quirky game of cat and mouse thatll have you wondering whether youre the cat or the mouse!!

Notice something strange or out of place? Making mental notes and observations (like a good secret agent) will aid you in solving tricky puzzles later on. As you explore Rubys secret hideout, collecting objects and using them cleverly is crucial in unlocking a trail of puzzles leading you ever closer to your target!

Ack! You're early! I thought I still had time to work on my review. :P

Anyway, I finished this yesterday, guys. Highly recommend. It's part 1, and the only negative thing I can say is that part 2 isn't out yet. :P

I made a short impromptu video review just now and it didn't record properly. Sigh. Trying again.

I just played 20 minutes and I'm already hooked.
Great presentation...for some reason it gives me a The Room vibe in a very cool 70 spies world.

Can't wait to play more!!!!

Here we go. Short video review. Took several tries because my recording software kept messing it up. So if I sound at all exhausted in the video, it's because of that, not the game. The game is great!



I'm also working on a walkthrough here:

Any idea how long it'll take to finish if its only part one? It looks great but if it's a bit on the short side, I might have to wait until it's all out, I'm too impatient ;P

I hate trying to answer those kinds of questions for puzzle games. I didn't find it short, but it's also not a 10-hr long point-and-click. Some puzzles were a bit trickier and slowed me down. Once you know all the answers, though, it's a lot shorter -- like any puzzle game. The fun is in the exploration and figuring out how to solve puzzles. If you figure it all out faster than I did, it will be shorter for you.

Hope that helps. :/

It does, thank you I didn't realise how much of a daft question that actually was

Ha you're not the first one to ask it! I just often see people complain that a puzzle game is too short after they followed a walkthrough for it. It's a hard thing to measure, since everyone will solve things at a different pace.
