Under rating threshold (show) if you use the spikes from the pit on the level where he tells you to push the button to make a bridge over it, instead go down get the spikes go back and use them on the left wall of the level to get up and he'll say to you " you think your real clever, don't you", this won't help you anywhere in the game, but it's just a little extra that i found and felt like mentioning to people who don't care the slightest bit :)

Under rating threshold (show) SPOILER ALERT!!! Dont read if you wanna get the good ending yourself! This took quite some time to figure out, but god im glad i did. When you get to the point where you have to defeat your clone, you should have one spike left. Jump to the other side of the pit. Whilst mid-air right above the pit, throw the spike. Doesent matter if it hits anything. This is beacuse when you throw a spike it freezes you in the air. Your "clone" cant throw spikes, and therefore doesent freeze. If you do this correctly, you should be able to kill it while saving yourself. This will give you the nice ending!

Under rating threshold (show) I just noticed when the game starts to break apart in the good ending, the word "Deception" for the level title distorts into "PoeticEnd"... Cool.

Under rating threshold (show) Would add more meaning if the boss fell on spikes, not gems... You see, because the boss is the opposite of you, so spikes would kill him, and high jump boots really would be high jump for him, spring boards would be springy for him... So in fact, he was telling you the truth the whole time - the truth from his view. o_O

Under rating threshold (show) This game was fascinating. I like how it handles the concept of trust in such a black-and-white manner. It's an interesting deconstruction. The graphics are simple, but they get the job done. Same goes for music and controls. It takes a little getting used to, but you figure it out soon enough. I enjoyed this throughly. 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) Yeah "SpecialD"- I had the same problem with the 'J' -Jump key too! Most frustrating!! It acted like "I'll jump U when I feel like it..!" Finishing the ending took longer than playing the game levels. I was able to finish off the Lyin'Man without darting him. Lost my last one. Itchy finger. When I jumped back over to the stairsteps side & went down the steps- he tried to jump back to his side but went down the drain! Adios Lyin'Man!! Despite the J-key overall I give this game 4 3/4 stars. Quite different way of thinking things through. Definitely needs a sequel. Don't cha think or Don't Ya? >^_^<

Under rating threshold (show) After you beat the "boss" a whole bunch of anagrams appear where the level name is and the last one that appears just before the screen shaters is "poeticend" or Poetic end.

Under rating threshold (show) For people whining and complaining about the guy lying to you...THAT'S THE POINT. And if you would actually read mirosurabu's description of the game, he says, "It’s time to make your escape but can you trust the person that is trying to help? Not everything is what it seems." It kinda gives you a heads up that the person "helping" you isn't trustworthy.

Under rating threshold (show) For those of you who are stuck on Deception level, first simply go right until you see the beam of light and JUST WAIT. After about a minute the beam should go away, and then you should keep going right. Eventually, you'll see a pack of golden bullets. DON'T WASTE THESE. If you keep going right after that, you'll see a wall with one gold part in the middle. Throw a golden bullet onto this and use it to jump over and continue rightward. A doppelganger will then appear. Jump and move right, and throw a spike in mid air. Your doppelganger will not copy this, and move further left than you do right. Then move more right, and he should fall left into the central gems. Finally, run right into one final beam of light.

Under rating threshold (show) HOW TO GET THE TWO ENDINGS: 1st ending: just walk into the beam at the "last" level. 2ne ending: walk up to the beam but DO NOT enter it, wait for a few seconds and the beam will dissipate, allowing you to walk past it. You can defeat the final boss by jumping over the "gems" and firing a spike in mid-air when you above them, you will be frozen in mid-air but you clone won't be and will fall to his death. (just make sure you evade them after you un-freeze). WELL DONE: YOU ARE NOW FREE!

Under rating threshold (show) As an actual arcade game, this was nothing special. However, I liked it for the mood and sense of psycho-drama. The "story" kept me interested enough to play through. This is reminiscent of an era when graphics and sound were not as important as story and mood. Nice job on this period piece.

Under rating threshold (show) To get the good ending 1 spike is needed. When you're using a spike you're frozen, but your alter still responds to keyboard, so stand on a ledge and while throwing spike, press walk arrow to the ledge, and your alter will just go in the pit. hope it helped:)

Under rating threshold (show) At the end, when the screen is cracking, at the top of it, "DEPICTION" flashes into several different jumbled words. POETICEND is one of them. *cough* However, this game was very well made, even though I normally hate platformers. It wasn't too hard, it made you think at times, and it reminded me of Portal, which gives this an instant 4/5 at the least. Many, if not all of the puzzles were cleverly made. In general, 5/5.

Under rating threshold (show) I understand it all. Shadow you is the you with common sense. common sense says "don't touch the spikes" "gems are good" "we should kill the creature" boots are good". but when you realize your common sense won't do you any good, you begin to understand how to win. that's when it leaves you. after it leaves. the levels seem to make sense. but when it comes back, the levels go crazy. because YOU'VE gone sane again. you can't see the real floor. eventually, and this is the depressing part for me, you have to go insane to free yourself.
