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

Linux Problem?

It doesn't seem to work in Ubuntu 9.10. After the AGame loading screen, it just goes black.


DampGnat responds:

I've never heard for Ubuntu 9.10, but i do know that some linux users have had issues with frame rate. Maybe try another browser?

Naked Matt Hoffman saving the world at Copenhague

Hey nice concept! I loved this! A true piece of Art. And it was pretty challenging! Especially lvl 7. For me that's a 10/10 %u2605%u2605%u2605%u2605%u2605

Fun but difficult.

Great game, and the difficulty was just right. Not too easy, but not too hard either.

One question though, what do the bonus items even do?


DampGnat responds:

bonus items were an after thought to be honest, for the addicts. They're purely aesthetic, but for some people its enough to encourage replays over and over until he's fully clothed (sort of) :)

Great game.

love the art so much, and the very obscene style of the game in general. Really beautiful frozen world you have created here, and the juxtoposition of stuff like the glaciers and then the giant radar dishes in the background, its just brilliant. Very fun game to try and time stuff right (like the falling cube in 7 or 8 that rolls and you have to get in the right area not to be crushed). Overall great game, Loved it but it just wasn't *perfect*.
