El Laberinto de Blu
This page is about a screamer or shock site of which the original copy was deleted.
El Laberinto de Blu (Bloo's Maze) is a screamer Flash game that was available on the Latin-American Cartoon Network website in October 2008, based on the animated series Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. The game was a parody of The Maze.
It was available on the website from 2008 to 2011, when it was removed after the website got restructuration. It was also available on the Brazilian Cartoon Network website, where it was called "O Labirinto do Blu".
The game is well known in the Spanish-speaking Lost Media community, where many members tried to find a copy of the game before Adobe Flash closed on January 1st, 2021, all in vain, unfortunately. One thing that was only available from this game besides two screenshots of the game's thumbnail from the Brazilian and Argentinian websites is a gameplay video (although it doesn't show the entire game, and the scream is the one from Zoeken due to editing.)
Before it was removed, it was also available on an actually defunct Flash game website named "Manobros.com", which can be accessed using Wayback Machine, and the thumbnail and description showing the title screen are what remained on the game's page.
On July 21, 2021, the game was found by Hispanic Lost Media Wiki user MatyGamingHD and Flashpoint user Ganonthegreat in a CDN by Turner, after which the game was uploaded in a Google Drive folder, along with its different versions for different Latin-American countries as shown in their filenames, mx (Mexico), ve (Venezuela), br (Brazil), cl (Chile), ar (Argentina), and la (Latinamerica), for the rest of the country, although they're the same game save for the language in the Brazilian Portuguese variant.
As stated above, the game is a parody of The Maze, meaning it has similar gameplay; unlike the Maze, the title screen contains an instructions option, where besides telling how to play, it tells the player to turn up the speakers, to supposedly hear a "code" that Bloo will give the player upon reaching the end. After starting the game, using the mouse, you have to control Bloo through a white maze surrounded by turquoise-color grass with trees (instead of walls) to avoid touching, to try to reach a brown rectangle with an animated, shining key at the end.
While reaching more than half of the maze, The Grim from The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy pops up, with a male voice yelling "NOOOO!", and then goes into an end screen; showing merchandise, along with three Toonix avatars in Halloween costumes, and two thumbnails for screamer videos created by CN for the Month of Terror, an option to go to the dedicated microsite, and a bottom text telling the player to send it to his/her friends, all in a background that is dark red with blood splotches.
