Today is December 31, 3047, the day of The Blackout. You play as Kyle, a teenager who was instructed by his grandmother (A Blackout survivor, and member of The New York Revolution) to stop the president from issuing another Blackout. Armed only with his wits, Kyle must go up to an abandoned warehouse and confront him, ending the Blackout once and for all.
The Blackout is a 2D maze navigating game. The objective is to escape the maze (the warehouse), finding your way and avoiding hazards. and ultimately find the exit. Due to the blackout (world growing dark), you can only see a short distance around you, so take every step with caution.
Load the game. Once at the title screen, use the up and down arrow keys to select "start" and press enter. This will put you in the main game.
Once in the game, you navigate Kyle around the maze using the arrow keys:
Up moves Kyle towards the top of the screen
Left moves Kyle towards the left edge of the screen
Right moves Kyle towards the right edge of the screen
Down moves Kyle towards the bottom of the screen
Throughout the maze there are checkpoints (red glowing rods). If you touch them, they will glow green, and your progress is saved at that point. Kyle will respond at that point should he fall prey to a hazard.
