Adobe Flash Player issues on Linux

Well, I tested “Cave puzzles” on Microsoft Windows (XP,Vista,Windows7) and MacOs Snow Leopart, but never tried Linux. And it turned out that the Adobe Flash Player 10.x for Linux had some issues with 3rd level of the game, making it impossible to move on further under linux. Although the game was all right on Windows and MacOs. The problem was that some of the collision boxes were missing or moved aside.
At first I thought it was due to the swf protecting software – Kindisoft secureSwf. I tried testing the game under Ubuntu without protection – same results.
Well all I did then is just resize some of the collision boxes, and also selected the whole scene and shifted it aside just to make something different. And it helped 🙂
At least I had a reason to try out Ubuntu, which:
– allowed to install itself right from under windows vista (and added a boot option)
– looked pretty friendly
– and was totally free
I failed to install it on my old notebook Asus X50V series.

Summary:
Developers, test your flash games on: Windows, MacOs and LINUX!! 🙂
Give a try to Ubuntu. It is free.

    Linux is awesome. Flash plugin for Linux sucks. Ubuntu is getting more and more bloated, you might want to try a different installation in the near future ^^

    Thanks for the game, though some levels are just a little bit frustrating.

    Thanks for playing 🙂
    some of them definitely are.. 🙂
    And there were no clues or hints at the beginning, but then I thought it was getting too hard to get what I mean and what I want players to do\guess..
    But I also wanted the game to look a bit like real life.. when you get in situations where there is no one to ask… like in that level with vases..
    And by the way 🙂 half of the CD/dvd quests that I played had puzzles much much more difficult to guess, so unobvious..
    It’s a trend that games get easier and easier to play.. casual
