How to Play


Eyelander requires an internet connection to play. To start the game, select the Play icon on the homepage and sign in to your account. At first, the game will present you with the title screen. From here, you can select the Settings menu to change difficulty and sound options. Alternatively, you can select the Start button to begin playing the game.

The first time you play, a short tutorial will guide you. The tutorial will explain that you need to find a target shape and either tap it on your touchscreen or click on it using the left mouse button to advance.

After playing the tutorial, the game will present you with the map screen. Your goal is to guide the Eyelander through the levels from the beach to the volcano. Various obstacles along the way will attempt to block your journey. Click on the Play button to start each series of levels and overcome each obstacle. Clicking on the Back button will take you back to the title screen. Clicking on the X button will give you the option of closing the game and taking you back to the homepage.

Good luck!

Photosensitivity and epilepsy seizures

A very small percentage of people may experience epileptic seizures or blackouts when exposed to certain light patterns or flashing lights when playing video games. This can happen even if they have no prior history of seizures or epilepsy. If you or a family member do have a history of seizures, we recommend you consult your doctor before playing Eyelander. If you (or your child) experience symptoms such as: disorientation, confusion, loss of awareness, altered visual perception, or any involuntary muscle twitching you should immediately stop playing and we recommend that you consult your doctor.
