Unravel the Fortress of Inscrutability

Robber Baron has stolen the town jewels, but never fear!

Mighty Bridget won't be pushed around. She does the pushing!

Teenaged Sophie is unsurpassed in laser-leaping skill!

No cranny is too tiny for child prodigy Zelda!

Evildoers are no match for THE LASER LEAGUE!

How to play


  • Arrow keys ←↕→ (or WASD) to move around.
  • X (or Space) to change character.
  • Z to undo mistakes.
  • R to restart a level.

Browser support

  • Recommended browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Microsoft Edge all work great.
  • Okay: Brave browser (you'll need to turn off 'shields' so that it can save the game), Safari (does slightly strange things to the itch page).
  • Not recommended: Internet Explorer (doesn't show the level select or full-screen buttons).

The fact that everyone reacts when one of the characters failed makes it even better.

Haha, glad you appreciated that! Great what you can do with a single-frame reaction sprite.

Hey! This was really good! I like the little bits of personality they have. Great puzzles, too. Just challenging enough to be fun.

Thank you! Designing the gradated puzzles and the little bits of personality were my two favourite parts of the development process. 🙂

Great job, Tim! This is a lot of fun, quite polished, and it's a wonderful execution of a great idea. Keep up the excellent work!

Thank you Lloyd. 🙂

This is a great puzzle! The last stage was very difficult.

Thanks so much for playing, and great walkthrough video. Ha, I watched how you did level 13, and you did it completely differently to how I intended! 😂 I like your solution, though, very cool!

amazing game~

Thank you! 🙂

Nice thing with different characters abilities.

Thank you! It was fun to find three abilities that worked well together.

Extremely fun and mind bending, without being too tedious or tricky. Would love to see this expanded with new concepts beyond lasers.


Thanks Pasta Pig! Yes, plenty of potential there for other gadgets. 🙂
