Frame Control

FavoriteLoadingAdd game to your favorites

This is a 20-stage puzzle platforming level escape game where you control an archer who can shoot arrows at the edges of the screen.

  • As you move around the level the frame or border around you moves with you. Only things which happen inside that visible frame happen. It is as though everything outside the frame does not exist.
  • Avoid dangerous hazards.
  • Shoot the frame borders with your arrow and then put your cursor over the edge of the frame to pull the frame edge inward. You can use the frame borders to create a temporary elevated floor, or to create a wall you can jump on where you jump back and forth between walls.

      • Levels are unlocked sequentially.
      • Your web browser automatically saves your game progress.
  • Game Controls
    • Desktop
      • Keyboard

        • Moe right by pressing the D key or the right arrow key.
        • Jump by pressing the W or the up arrow key.
        • When all of your arrows have been shot & you want to reset the frame press and hold the F key to get a new set of arrows.
      • Mouse
        • Use your mouse to aim your arrows.
        • Left click or right click to fire.
        • Drag your mouse over the edge of the frame to be able to select it & drag it inward to create a temporary floor, a temporary wall, or a temporary ceiling.
    • Touchscreen devices
      • Use the on-screen controls.
        • The move left & move right buttons are in the lower left corner.
        • The jump button is in the lower right corner.
        • The release frame control & reset arrow button is just to the right and above the jump button.
      • Tap the screen and drag in a direction to fire an arrow.
      • This game is far easier to play on desktop computers than on mobile devices due to more granular movement control, particularly when jumping back and forth up walls.
    • Controls & indicators
      • When one of your arrows has stuck into a border that border changes from white to purple.
      • Above your character are dashes which indicate how many arrows you have remaining.
      • The upper right corner of the frame has a white X in a red square which you can select to restart the level.
      • The level select screen shows which levels you have unlocked.
  • Game Play
    • Concept & goal
      • The goal of this game is to reach the statue at the end of the level & hit the frame extender above it with an arrow.
      • Avoid running into spikes, falling off platform into the abyss, or getting hit by a projectile filed from a mortar cannon.
      • How this game works is only whatever is in the active frame you are in actually happens, and everything outside of it is as though it does not exist.
    • Controlling the frame
      • By default the frame has a square design & it moves around following you wherever you go.
      • You can restrict the frame by shooting any of the borders (top, bottom, left, right) with an arrow, then putting your cursor over the border you hit and pulling it inward.
        • You can only pull a frame border inward. You can not push outward.
      • You can restrict multiple aspects of the frame at once (e.g. left & right sides, top & bottom, a side and the bottom, etc.)
    • Levels
      • This game has 20 levels which are unlocked sequentially.
      • You can go back and replay previously beat levels whenever you like.
      • If you die on a level you automatically restart it. This game offers unlimited continues.
    • Tips
      • Shooters
        • Sometimes you need shooters to break blocks which clear a path for you to pass through. Their shots only break the blocks so long as the fire and the block are in-frame.
        • Try to clear blocks while you are not inline with the shots & go slowly when you must be inline.
        • If you only need one row or column to pass through you can barely show that part in frame to clear it out and leave the adjacent column hidden so that you can use it as a marker for when you need to shoot arrows to control frame positioning.
      • Setting the frame
        • If you make an error with a frame setting shoot all your arrows so then you can refresh your arrow inventory and reset the frame again.
        • Sometimes an arrow which is meant to stick only one direction can stick the orthogonal direction as you move laterally.
        • If the frame is below the ground sometimes you can shoot an arrow into the ground and then jump upward to have the lower frame catch the arrow so that you can control the frame.
      • Jumping back & forth
        • One of the primary purposes of limiting the frame size is to create a temporary wall you can jump off of.
        • When playing with the keyboard it helps to use the W-A combination when jumping left & the Up-Right arrow combination when jumping right, so that you can go back and forth while rapidly changing directions as you ascend.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like retro platforming games or level escape games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
