Thanks for the feature Tom!

Apologies, Icycle doesn't seem to run for some Ubuntu users. Try updating your flash plugin?

The next ice age has arrived and the world as we know it has peacefully frozen in time, but to one naked survivor it's cold and lonely as hell!

Icycle is a contemporary take on a RETRO style bike game which challenges your skill and memory. Trial and error will pave the way but remembering the path might prove harder than you expect. Collect as many bubbles as possible but be prepared for plenty of amusing fatalities along the way.

If only dying was this much fun in life!

Instructions: Ride over the icy terrain collecting bubbles while avoiding various hazzards. The push bike can only advance, you can not back pedal so remembering the best route is part of the challenge. You can influence your altitude over thermals with up and down keys.
Use the skull & crossbones button to commit suicide if the bike ever gets stuck.
Gain a new item of clothing each time you complete the game!

Sound by Stilton Studios & Studio 42

Good job!

I loved the style - the cool textural art, chilling wintery music, cute character...and the wide variety of environments was stellar. I thought the simplicity was perfect, there was no need to go backwards, and I like the fact that you really didn't need to do anything else besides focus on moving forward. I don't think you need to add a thing to this! Plus, the challenge ramped up at a good pace. It was mildly frustrating at points where I wasn't sure what to do, but that definitely made completing it feel like a small victory. Superb atmosphere. Really, I think it's a fantastic professional short game. Thanks for sharing! :D

Above average.

8 for graphics
3 for sound effects/music.
7 for gameplay.
4 for story. I know it's not supposed to have that much of a story...
It's simplistic. The reason I gave it a low score was that eerie sound "SQUEAK" every three seconds. The thing about not being able to go back is annoying.Graphics are good.The story is kind of meh... the gorrila confuses me, where's it's extra capsule for the motor cycle? Why did the world freeze? Overall it's playable... I played it to the end just to see all the graphics. I don't personally like it. I wouldn't recommend it. Some people feel different, I just don't like it.
