This is one of those "What the heck, that was it? I broke my fingers swishing my mouse and had to listen to some zombie panting in my ear..." games. What a waste of my time, I could have been barfing in "Dark Cut"!

Holy hell there really is a third level! I was zapping zombies, and I zapped them all. I just can`t remember the exact order, I`ll have to try it again. The third level is more freaky than the other two, not sure what to do there yet.

JeanaH. the zombie`s aren`t scary in any shape or form... they are actually just dark outlines that stay in the same spot and don`t move.

Actually, I believe there IS a third level. Noone pays attention though.

First Level:
[spoiler]Wind is generated by the speed of the mouse. Move the pointer in wide movements to blow out the candle.[/spoiler]

Second Level:
[spoiler]When the mouse is held, in clicked position, over a zombie, they degenerate, and sink into the black hole. The black hole steadily grows, but not when you have your pointer on it. Kill each zombie, as quick as possible, with the pointer held on the hole between each kill.[/spoiler]

Using these tactics, I got to the last part of the second level, but it is ridiculously hard.

It started off pretty and calm.. then got scarey =\, a warning next time would help...

But, it was cool. I got to the second scene, saw the bright light (now I know what to expect) and it was over... longer game please :-), or else I just messed up.

Ok, this is starting to make sense. If yo pay attention on the zombie level, the big portal ONLY grows after you kill a zombie, and when you DO kill a zombie, a distinct little orb, bigger than the ones your pointer makes flys into the center which makes it bigger (maybe a soul?) If there was someway to stop it, which I cant figure out, then you could kill them all without making it bigger.

on the second scene it made me think of what a certain lvl of hell must be like...rotting corpses floating around in some strange abis for all eternity, it was fun and scarey at the same time.

You don`t even need to click.

[spoiler]Just move the mouse around in big circles really fast, and you`ll hear the wind getting stronger and stronger until it blows the candle out.[/spoiler]

i really liked the part after you kill all the zombies and you`re stuck in that river thing. the music was scary though. and kinda pointless after the 5th or 6th scene

I greatly dislike these sorts of figure-out-what-to-click/type-and-when games (notpron is a nightmare for me), but the art on the first level was nice. The second level`s art was uninteresting, as was the overall gameplay.

In the zombie scene, if you look closely in the foreground, there are 3 large zombies on the left, centre and right. If you click like crazy on each one of them, they`ll start glowing, and then you`ll see a quick white flash and the zombie will disappear. I don`t know what do to after that. ;-/

*somnium orbis instructions*
you must learn what needs to be accomplished in order to progress to a new scene

^that`s what it says if you go to the game via the main page... i`m guessing there`s something else to the zombie level. Or they just got tired of the game and gave up.

there can`t be only two scenes.. i think that on the second the aim is not to make the black hole in the middle of the screen grow too much.. noticed that if you put the cursor on any zombie it starts growing? is must have something to do with that.. but still didn`t figure out waht..
