Concerned Joe Walkthrough

Concerned Joe is a puzzle-based adventure game. This puzzle game features simple controls, sprite graphics, high-quality audio, and twelve achievements.

Concerned Joe may take its inspiration from the 1994 movie, Speed. If you recall the plot of that thrilling move, Keanu Reeves's character had to keep the bus's speed above fifty miles-per-hour or the bomb would explode; in this adventure game, you have to keep moving or you will lose health! The goal is to solve puzzles on each level of the twenty levels to advance to the next. You have unlimited lives and will respawn at the beginning of the current level if you die. Your progress is saved upon the completion of each level, so you can continue from where you left off the next time that you play.

A simple set of keyboard controls are used in Concerned Joe. The arrow keys are used to move your character. Alternatively, you may use the WASD keys to move. You may use the M key to mute sounds (including the annoying voice of your captor). It is advisable to keep the sound on, no matter how annoying the voice gets, however, since he sometimes provides hints and cues.

Most puzzles in Concerned Joe can be solved using trial-and-error. You are given unlimited lives, so you may want to scout levels at first, taking as many lives as necessary to get your bearings. Pay close attention to your surroundings, as well as your captor's voice as they may provide hints to help you progress. Finally, remember that you have to keep moving, and that does not include running in place. Although your character's legs move when running against a wall or pushing an object, your health will continue to decline; a rule of thumb is that if there is no actual horizontal movement, your health will diminish.

Like many puzzle games, Concerned Joe can be frustrating at times, but patience and diligence both pay off. Overall, this adventure game is a joy to play, but if you are overcome with frustration, remember that if you quit, you can always continue from the level that you left off on!
