Just completed Automated Cave Explorer using a lot of save scumming. It plays very well, even better than Earth Shaker. Some of the puzzles are extremely fiendish.

Pressing those keys (up/down and right) was just an example for moving in a particular situation. The game is designed so you hold the key for the direction you want to move in advance, like when executing pre-turns in Pac-Man. Using this technique means you don't need to see off the bottom of the screen. Going to the bottom and then move left/right while holding the down key can be used to reveal the passages to lower levels.

I'm doing something wrong because this doesn't work for me. I get stuck many times above all when the character is static and you want to make a turn. I tried to play with Specemu. Honestly I think there may be a technical issue with keyboard.

I've just played Yazzie and Automated Cave Explorer and both are excelent!

At last I could play Alone in Darkmaze. I like to throw the ball and having to search for it again. it's cool to take turns in the dark.The invisible parts of the maze make me want to explore more and help to get oriented.

on specemu,
arrow controls seem broken at least for this game
5678 seem to work ok though
qaopm work fine

I'm amazed by the fast multicolour movement on Space Monsters meet THE HARDY. It really improves gameplay ;)

Interesting results. Valley of Rains was no surprise, but I would have expected Drift to appear in the top three. All three winners were well-deserved IMO.
