How to Play


Eyelander requires an internet connection to play. To start the game simply click on the Play button on the homepage and sign in to your account using your username and password. You will be presented with the game’s title screen, from where you can select the Settings menu to change some of the game options (e.g. size of shapes, speed of levels) or select the Start button to begin playing the game.

The first time you play you will be guided through a tutorial that will explain 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 you will be presented with the map screen. Your goal is to take the Eyelander along the path from the beach to the volcano so that they can stop the volcano from erupting. The Eyelander will stop at various points along the way as they reach obstacles that block their path. Simply 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, even if they have no prior history of seizures or epilepsy. If you, or anyone in your family has an epileptic condition or has had seizures of any kind, we recommend that you consult with 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.
