Very cool game - For my channel I've done a video which shows the gameplay:

Cool video! Thanks and I'm glad you liked the game.

Nice old school game! Easy to pick up and fun to play. Keep up the good work.

Love it - great game design and intriguing puzzles - the simple graphics enhance the experience - well done

Glad you liked it. I'm releasing an extended version with 6 new levels at the end of the month.

Downloaded Tenebra yesterday, started playing immediately and couldn't stop before all levels had been completed :) VERY enjoyable, and as others have said, there is great potential for expansion. I for one was left wanting for more levels! A level editor for fans would also be cool to see some day, maybe after you feel you've done everything you want to achieve with the game. I see dozens of fan-made levels in future, just like Boulder Dash :) Thank you for the game!

Thanks! I'm glad that you enjoyed it so much.

I have been working on an extended version with a few additional levels, coming out in a few weeks. Stay tuned!

Excellent, looking forward to it!


Fantastic game, and kudos for the Plus4 version!

Thank you for this beautiful game, I love it!

After playing in Vice, I tried on my real C64 with an SD2IEC.

Two screenshots :)

And finished it on my real C64 too:


Looks good. I always test my games on the real thing before release.

Well, it is the way to go. Really loved Tenebra. I hope for Tenebra 2 now :)

Go back and play it today. I'm at level 18... Some levels are kinda hard, like level 17 for example. It took me at least 5 minutes to beat :(

Can't wait to go to the last level :)

Edit: just finished. I tried four times before winning on it.

Really fun game!  Will there be a Tenebra DX or Tenebra 2 coming?  Here's the full play-through if you are interested... thanks for the great game!

Maybe! I have some ideas for new gameplay elements and levels.


Awesome... this is a really fun game... would love Tenebra 2!  :D

Great game although a little easy the puzzles. Great potential to upgrade some new levels or add even monsters, pits, etc. to make more difficult the task.

But I liked to play the 25 levels a lot. 


Although I am not into dungeon exploring games. This game is very good and quite original. Well done Haplo.

Outstanding. Congrats, Haplo!


I love this game, congrats!!!!

Very good ideas, thanks for your work! :)

Tenebra – MEGJELENT!

Loved the demo. Looking forward to the release.

Simply loved it from the first level to the last, even if I had to skip level 4 to go to the end of the demo.

Can't wait the final version... Both my C64 - when I got my SD2IEC - and my C64Maxi will enjoy it :)

very good

Fun game!!!
Very curious for the development of this one!

I love it!!!!! Go on with the full game :)
