It's your standard room-escape game, of the sort Tomatea and Tesshi-e do so well. There's a chest of four drawers, with a different kind of code required for each. The second drawer down requires a numeric code. There are also a couple of other numeric codes scattered around the place.

Here's the nasty bit: There are no clues whatsoever for the second drawer. Which is fine, because it's empty. However, it is unlocked by taking the key to the main door. So if you finish the game, think "But what about that drawer? I can't have solved it and forgotten!" and go to check...

(I got the idea from a game I thought had done this, when I had actually solved it and forgotten.)

Yeah, that took longer than I thought. I found myself utterly stymmied by the first question, moved on to the others, and then kept thinking "But I don't have an answer for the first one yet". And I still don't.

The characters were:

1. Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Ultimate Spidey cartoon)
2. Seventh Doctor (Doctor Who)
3. Granny Weatherwax (Discworld)
4. Father Dougal Maguire (Father Ted)
5. Larfleeze/Agent Orange (Green Lantern comics)
6. Random Dent (The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy)
7. Chris Cwej (Doctor Who New Adventures)
8. Martin McCabe (Absolute Power)
9. Lt Cmdr Data (Star Trek: The Next Generation)
10. Amy Pond (Doctor Who)
11. Ebenezer Scrumph (I'm Sorry I Haven't A Christmas Carol)
12. Barbara Gordon/Oracle (Batman comics)
13. Luigi (Super Mario Brothers)
14. Rev Geraldine Granger (The Vicar of Dibbley)
15. Constable Wee Mad Arthur Mac Feegle (Discworld)

I’ve noticed a trend recently for Flash puzzle-platformers in which jumping around and avoiding spikes and bottomless pits is a metaphor for Life Itself or something. Which is cool, but sometimes there are aspects of these games that annoy me a bit. So here’s my opinionated and inexpert view of what makes a good philosophy puzzle platformer.

Well, clearly, being out of work, the absolute last thing I need is to start playing a subscription MMO.

But the thought of Callum Macintosh, the Kellas Cat, interacting with Superman and Batman beyond the world of very embarrassing fanfic I've never shown anyone is certainly tempting...

Aha!

I got Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 for my birthday. In February. With a sense of genuine acomplishment, I've finally completed the prologue bit with the Latvarian woman from Secret War.

Why? Because I've finally read the thing - which (presumably) appears on screen every time I load - telling me I can use the power stars to resurrect fallen characters.
