Genesis

In the winter semester 2010/2011, J-Snake and I started to learn together when he presented his TrapThem. In the beginning, robots behaved quite differently. Interesting levels did not exist, either. The crystals didn't move. And so forth. However, at that time, the block physics were as they appear today. And I was tempted to show that it also runs on an old computer. After the block physics worked, he agreed to the Commodore 64 port. This was the birth of TrapThem64. More

Game story

A brilliant scientist makes an important discovery which could be very dangerous in the wrong hands. The powerful company he works for is no longer trustworthy, so he decides to hide the top secret information onto data chips which were embedded into crystals. After his death an experienced spy finds clues to where the suspected diamonds may be. However he doesn't expect to be facing vicious robots programmed to destroy anything that moves, nor does he expect the difference in the mind boggling physics.
