Welcome to My Distraction!

So you play as this little gray thing with Antennae named Steve. The plot is that you are hungry, so you'll go find food. That's it.

The tutorial level explains the controls and techniques, but here are the controls again:

Z - Jump
X - Fire laser
Down - Duck/read sign/open chests
Up - Jetpack
Left/Right - Walk

You can perform wall kicks by sliding down a wall (pushing the arrow towards one) and pressing jump.
You can slide while crawling by pressing Z.
Your jetpack runs out of fuel quickly while flying, but recharges very fast on the ground.
Don't touch fans!
Don't let moving platforms crush you!

The goal is to collect the little wads of food (also found in chests) until you have enough (this number is on the top of the screen)
Once you have enough you must go to the exit. Any extra food you have goes into your score. Once you have enough food, bonus points
will appear, which you can collect before going to the exit. The faster you get the food, the more bonus points are available to

There is an online high score board at

Pretty darn good. The graphics looked nice, I always enjoy the black and white style.The game play was a little boring but the multiple moves you could do( jetpack, wall jump, slide, ect) helped. Over all, every one of your platformers all are good but it would have been better if you had made a cool thing that stood out like in my opinion Hatman's hat attack.

I get the same crash as MacAdam.

I couldn't get the food under the conveyor belt in level 2. ;__; Anyway, I really liked the music and the animations, it had a distinct style, even though it was black and white. Another notch on Bibin's belt!

Andy, try running it from the source.
Posted by Bibin 4th January, 2009

Ok, I think I found what was doing it and I removed it FOR REALS this time.

Clayton, in level 2, go to the leftmost point above the column of food and stand on the block.

Oh! Hehe, shoulda figured that out... >_O

I'll play it some more later.
Posted by AndyUK 4th January, 2009

The exe still wont work, so I just played the source like you suggested.

I didn't play much so i wont rate yet but at the moment it seems to be nice and stylish but lacking something.

Also I don't like the black and white graphics, but thats just a personal preference.

Crashed for me.

I just told Bibin what the problem was. The problem is event number 4 on the first frame. Delete that and it works. It tries to call on frame 31 at the same time as it tries to call on the next frame (frame 2) which is why it crashes. EDIT: If I'm wrong, I'll look bad, but I already tested it.

The whole game is awesome, but level 6 is a piece of art. Though it has a bug... Game froze when I pressed down at a location with both a sign and a chest. No big deal, though.

Fantastic as usual, Bibin.

Level six was made in 30 seconds; lots of fun to do!

Good quality stuff.

(though the crashing issue is a mess)
