If anyone is curious about how I made the graphics. I used the basic objects from the 3D graphics program Blender. I cropped and edited in Pixelformer. Resized and ditherd to black and white with this online tool Ditherit. And of-couse used this handy tool Image Converter by team ARG to convert the images! Thanks guys!


gosh that was surreal, really cool!

Thank you, glad you liked it!

Wow, this is great! I love the whole 3D vibe and the shading and stuff! Perfect timing too since I’m learning about cells right now.

Yeah it’s supposed to be like you are an enzyme or protein navigating into the nucleolus of a cell. (not scientifically accurate) ha ha

If you are into this stuff check this out, it’s pretty wild:


Wow, what an awesome looking game!


Love your 3D engine BTW! It’s taking Arduboy to the next level.

this is my first time browsing the community games not preloaded on the arduboy and that was interesting I didnt know what was going on at first but figured it out with trial and error, I do have to wonder what is it that your showing on the death screen and the start screen?

Awesome game. Runs very smoothly. Amazing 3-D look in such a small memory space. Two questions- how do I enable sound? And what is the general goal of the game?

You normally can mute / unmute the device by holing the B button when powering it on. While continuing to hold B, press up to enable and down to disable.

OK I found the issue. I flashed the EPROM by mistake, so booting the Arduboy and holding A and UP_ARROW re-enabled sound.

Thanks for the help and you are correct, it is the B key to hold down.
