Dear creative GH Members,

Renegade has contacted me again with a contest for you.

This time, one of his online friends who is working on a Flash based puzzle/riddle game similar to Never Ending Level Game (http://www.gamershood.com/forum/showthread.php?t=9409) needs your creative support!

Your Task:
Submit ideas for possible types of puzzles (like unscrambling a word, finding a hidden button etc.) that could be part of the game.
Please don't submit specific contents or exact questions for a level.

A prize amounting to $15 is offered for the best idea, awarded via a gift voucher or a subscription fee to an appropriate game site. The money can be sent to anywhere that accepts PayPal.

The winner will be chosen once the game has been completed.
Finishing the game might take some time though, because the game creator is currently learning to work with Flash.

The contest is over, Justeazy has been picked as the winner!

I hope that you will have a lot of great ideas, good luck! :D

How bout something like mechanical engineering?!?

Like, put the gears on the pegs in the right order to turn a thingy to open a glass door for a key or something?!?
If you put them on wrong, or too slow, something bad can happen, ;)

I'll make a concept sketch in paint and post soon.

hmm you could do a small like uhh point and click thing
like a house is on fire and you have to click like a phoen then the fire dept comes
then you click on like a fire hydrant or something and then you click on a uhh hose and it puts the fire out something liek that

A trip into Area 51. You find hints for musical notes to play on a keyboard to get the mothership to open up.

A giant Crossword game that you have to go all through the game to get the answers and fill it in

ermmm... you're a.. er.. penguin, yeah, and you're on a grid of, eerr, like, ice, and you need to get to the... er... fish or something. but everytime you move you keep sliding cos of the ice and stuff in the direction you pressed, unless, like, you hit a rock, then you, like, stop. or something. And you have to navigate the grid without missing a rock and keeping sliding to the edge of the screen or you'll fall of the ice and into the sea where you get eaten by a killer whale.

um yeah, something like that...
