Bridge Of Size: Little Big Mansion

April Monday is the cruellest day, seeding despair out of the week's end, mixing memories and regrets, spurring dull chat with colleagues. What better way to recover from the onslaught of the weekstart's blues than with a free browser game? Let's just hope this particular game doesn't have melancholy, atmospheric music of the sort that could plunge a chap into frowning reveries. Of course it does! It's a lo-fi puzzler set in a lonely mansion during a thunderstorm, jaunty sounds of jollity would be ill-fitting. Little Big Mansion might not be cheery but it is cheering, at least for anyone who enjoys odd mechanics based around size, space and the eternal problem of getting from point A to point B.

The current version is a prototype built for what the designer calls "the unofficial Norwegian Championship of Gameplay". It was certainly clever enough to make me grin so I reward it with The Unofficial Adam Championship Of Unexpected Cleverness, January 14th Edition. I won't spoil how it works - as the instructions inform at the beginning, 'Use Arrow Keys and Mouse'.

You'll be fine. Don't quit before you find the wardrobes.
