FIG is a game about a brainless, green-clothed Guy who seeks to return to his home. In order to do this, he must collect all the stars from 35 different-looking islands. The Guy would be totally helpless if he tried to collect the stars alone (he doesn't have a brain, right?) but luckily he has a helper: you! You must guide him through all the masses of traps that can be found all over the islands in order to complete the game and be happy! There's also some nasty bonus' awaiting you!

The game comes with a tutorial, RECOMMEND you to check it out. the readme also holds a FAQ in it, that may explain some things you don't understand.

FIG is also totally playable with just mouse, and it even features a fullscreen mode!

There's a huge, enormous credit page in the game, but I'll say here some thanks and bigger stuff:

Game musics made by Johan Hargne
Ending music made by Nawby/Noby
Some of the sounds + much more by Nifflas
Many sounds are taken from the freesound project. I can tell you, it's awesome! Go there!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the game! Go on! Download

I figured it out, but it was completely utterly non-obvious. Perhaps that obstactle should have been made of something that looked a little more destructible, as a hint? Because generally that wouldn't be what happens if you did that....

lol, I actually tried to hit the droid with the missile.

I hit it, but it didn't work.


Another bug:
-The missile goes right through the right box.

I found it. I really didn't expect it to work when I thought of how to get it, but it did.

Oh sorry. There's a trick you can do with the right box though to make it especially easy to pass.

I didn't expect it to work either. It would make a lot more sense if it was like, a cracked brick wall that made you turn around and fall off, instead of those...

The game is simple but the aesthetic really sells it. Reminds me of Yoshi's Island with some Mario Galaxy for the map screens.





The levels where you have to click things as fast as possible like the one where you ring the bell with a cannon or the one where you have to click off all the lightbulbs in 1 second to get the blue star kinda suck though.

The game looks great, the game sounds great, the game's creative and imaginitive, but the trial and error based gameplay is rather tedious.
I had more fun looking for the blue stars than I did trying to get to the end of the level.

Puzzle games aren't usually for the narrow minded...

I just don't like practically being forced to die because nothing is set in stone.

On level 4 you won't know the timing of the lifts and will definitely fall to your doom.
In level 6 you begin exploring for what you can click on only to find you need to click cetain objects in a sequence.

On level 18 he'll fall into the water before you realize what you need to do.
Level 23 will most certainly knock you into the stratosphere at least once. There's no real hint as to what will happen when you click on the spores.

How many of you didn't get killed by that crow on level 24?
Level 28 utilizes a physics function that was never utilized before and is never again.

The last level took me a while to figure out because, previously, you never directly interact with the character (the closest you get to it is moving a platform he's standing on), now I suddenly have to.
Then you die right away as another obstacle comes flying at you when there was no hint of it being there moments ago.

It's trial and error, there's little puzzling about it.
Even Hempuli states in the help screen: "Hold [the] right mouse button to speed up the flight of the character; [it] might be boring to watch him fall down and fly away slowly, slowly, again and again..."

Sorry if this spoils events in the game or more embarrassingly: -Codemonkey-'s comment wasn't aimed at me.
I'm merely speaking my opinion. You may love this game to bits. I only ask that I'm not called narrow minded just because I'm not fond of dying.
I will erase this comment at request.

i agree. i prefer puzzle games where it IS possible to figure it out without dying. It should still be hard but be actually possible.

It wasn't amied at you Fragasnap, it was this guy up here. At least you took the time to explain WHY unlike this guy.

I do agree that games were you will die if you have not already played a certain scene of the game can be frustrating, however, this game is built on the very concept of dying and trying.

As it is easy to die, it also takes a minimum time to try again, and (even though it might have seemed more logical to put it in the reversed order) the player is given time after the guy has died to investigate the level and find out what to do.

If you don't like the fact that the guy can die so easily, then you dislike the concept of the game. It's like, though not really, giving an platformer low points because you don't like the concept of platformers.

Rather than basing your grades on how much you liked the game, you should try to see what it is in it that you don't like, and explain to the developer what it is, and preferably also what you want him to do about it.

I know going off topic in a comment session like this isn't going to learn all clickers how to critizise a software properly (which isn't easy), but it might at least help someone.

Also remember that you do not compare the software found here to professional stuff, but to some abstract idealized form of the specific product (taking the way it was made into consideration).

I don't like the trial and error gameplay, but hey Phoenix Wright sells by the bucket load so everyone else does.

I'm not entirely keen on the art style either, the grassy and rock bits look good but I'm not keen on the character design. It's like they're too obstructively random.

I'll hold off on the rating until I beat it.
 
Posted by Hempuli 7th August, 2008

Well, if people like a game and someone doesn't like, people often want an explanation WHY this someone doesn't like the game.

Awesome - looks like Im' going to get a review from someone that hates the game :/

Posted by Dustin Gunn 8th August, 2008

I liked the game but it's frustrating enough that I felt it was a negative experience overall.

I quit on level 30 because trial and error gameplay mixed with a minute of cutting out squares for every attempt doesn't mix.

Very swish game! I have played this to death and defo worth a download - 300 people can't be wrong! Plenty of levels, acres of time spent on the levels and buckets of talent poured into this game. I'm not a huge puzzle fan, but this game deserves a look-in from everyone. Good stuff!

300 is quite small for such a game. TDC's only a little place compared to what will happen as it hits bigger sites.

Wow, this was such a joy to play. A game design masterpiece. Love every aspect of it.

Still didn't found all the blue stars, but working on it.

I can only complain that some levels require too much fast mouse movement. Not really in the spirit of puzzle games.

But overall, a game to remember, keep and return to.

In my all time favorites for sure.
