I guess you all played Research & Development already.
Pretty entertaining..

It's a singleplayer puzzle game.

Well, no. More like HL2 without guns.

The game is to prove the graduate MIT physicists dont need guns to kill things. They can find far more elaborate ways.

I finished this last night, played through in one sitting. It's not bad. Yes, some parts are a bit silly and the AI isn't great at times but it was enjoyable.

There's a colour coded door lock part, that's a bit tricky if you're colour blind. I was able to narrow it down to 2 codes and just tried both, but it's still a bit of a pain. The fuse puzzle really did my head in though :( You have to stand a bit away from the board otherwise it goes mad and shoots off, getting zapped in the process and forcing you to restart :x

I liked how you escape at the end though :D Click the following images for spoilers!
