This Is the Only Level: Adventures in Singularity is a platformer puzzle game developed by John Cooney and published by Armor Games as a browser game on 2009-08-07. It was developed in Flash.

The game's hook is that there are a bunch of levels, but they're always the same layout as the first. So, instead of changing the map, the game changes the mechanics in each level.

After playing Achievement Unlocked I was curious to see what else the developer made, so I tried this game and I beat it on my first try.

Review

Good

  • I like the idea of using a single level and just changing the rules each play through of it.

Bad

  • The controls are not very good. The jump is floaty and there are some movement glitches with some rules.
  • The music loop is too short, so becomes annoying.
  • The game doesn't really have enough variety. I found that a lot of the rules weren't that important (I'm not sure what the mime level was, but I still beat it), or just variations of existing ones (invisible, dark, and zoomed-in could all be solved in the same manner). There were also sections of the map that never required you to explore, like the top right or bottom left.

Ugly

  • The graphics are very uninspired.
  • The game is too short and too easy. I didn't find any of the puzzles to be very challenging, even the hardest one for me only took about a minute. My very first attempt only took a little over seven minutes, and that was while taking screenshots as I went.
