Newgrounds Favorite ‘Don’t Move’ Explodes on Google Play

Don’t Move is a simple game that is a little bit hard to explain. Essentially you are a ninja that has found himself in a long hallway with four torches in it. You have no clues as to why you’re here or how you got here, but naturally you want to find a way out, right? Well, unfortunately for you this is easier said than done. You find that each time you try to escape you end up bursting into a cloud of pixels after just a few steps! Well, that’s not good, is it?

The gameplay in Don’t Move couldn’t be any easier. You’ll touch on the left side of the screen to move left and the right side of the screen to move right. Simple stuff. So you’re probably wondering what’s the point of the game if you’re just going to explode each time you try to make a break for the exit?

Well, the game actually consists of a large number of challenges that you must accomplish in order to reach the end of the game. These challenges are mostly made up from various game stats like how far you’ve travelled, the amount of time you’ve spent playing the game, the number of deaths you’ve had, and the number of medals you’ve attained. This might sound a little simple and mindless, and in a way it is, but as you make your way into the game you’ll notice changes to the gameplay that will keep you playing until the end. There actually is an ending to the game and you’ll have to do some serious thinking and some trial-and-error if you’re going to find it.


Don’t Move is a strangely addictive game that is based on simple controls and simple gameplay elements. If you’re interested in checking it out I highly recommend purchasing it from the developers Humble Widget (which can be accessed HERE). The game is also available to download on Google Play but buying it through the Humble Widget also gives you access to the game on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android – and you even get the game’s soundtrack too. It’s the same price you’d be spending on Google Play but you just get a bit more bang for your buck through the Humble Widget.

    Looks oddly irritating, I don’t see myself enjoying this one 🙂

    It’s strangely addictive like cookie clicker. I got it and it’s interesting. For a buck why not?
