Friday Flash Fun: Evacuation is a puzzle game about explosive decompression. Save the crew! Eject the aliens into space by opening the spaceship's doors! The catch: doors of the same color all open together.

They don't call her Madam Airlock for nothing

The sound effect when one of your guys is ejected is priceless. I hope if I were ever explosively decompressed I'd make such a cute sound.

Why do they have to name the guys who get sucked out? I just thought they were random dudes but now I feel bad for letting Keene get killed.

It's a lot easier once the crew is dead.

My strategy of letting the crew slowly slide towards the doors as I let the monsters out stopped working when I had a crew of 5 and 2 officers.

This is mad sweet.

Btw Foddy is a bioethics fellow at Princeton. He is known for his research into when it's okay to vent someone into space.

I keep doing well...until the urge to flush em all into space gets too strong and then WOOSH!

How the hell do you do Level 8?
posted by spiderskull at 4:30 PM on January 9, 2009

The levels are computer generated, so everyone's level 8 will be different. Sometimes, though, you have to eject a few spacemen. You can also close the doors again while the aliens or crew are in motion, and if they're still inside, they'll be safe.

Alas, poor Brown, and Keane, and Yang, and Meier, and Murray...

Supposedly the game has an ending. Level 200? Holy crap.

I also liked QWOP.

Ok. It doesn't actually end at level 200. I got to and past level 201, and it just keeps going. Dangit.

Gaaaah. After playing this for a while, I'm now worried whenever I click on a link that I've missed some door somewhere and instead of loading a page all my guys will get sucked out into space or eaten by purple squid/anglerfish things. Thanks,... Brett.

That's exactly what I found. Now every attempt to open my e-mail leaves me anxious that I will send McLean and Chen cartwheeling down some overlooked pathway and out into hard vacuum.

Has anyone else notice that occasionally aliens will crouch in the corner closest to the viewer and seemingly become immune to being pulled out?
