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

Haunting and fun

Very addictive little game. Love it. Very haunting scenario - the last man on Earth, pedaling around, searching for companionship (and clothes!). The music is awesome, and fitting to the context.

Different to say the least.

This game is esthetically amazing.. mesmerizing to the point were it can easily surpass from a visual perspective of a full retail product. (for instance a platformer on the wii) But that's visuals i can rave on about how good looking this game is. And how you should be proud of what you have here. But gameplay is what people care about... ICYCLE is a game were you collect bubbles and dodge hazards going through 8 "locations" and for what that is it's fun but.. not that fun. It was balanced as for its length. But if this game didn't have looks to rely on it would be a sad, lonely girl desperate for personality.

It was more of an experience then a game but i mean if something primitive as a browser game can pull of a experience then that's pretty incredible in my book. (while not at the caliber as an "experience" then games like Shenmue it still is pretty darn impressive)

This ones an oddball i would love to see more games like this from more authors and you DampGnat

Well done, this game is original and well designed. Couldn't stop playing until I'd finished.
