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

wow....

I dont give 10s sparingly, this is one of the few times it's really deserved. You put a hell of a lot of time and effort into this, and it really shows.

The music, graphics, handling, pretty much all of it was spot on. the world was well detailed and ominous of the futre ice age. I wish it could of been longer but then I don't think it needs to be.

Bravo my good chum..Bravo.

Excellent!

This was an excellent little game. Eventhough I might be a bit biased, since the setting is post-apocalyptic, for which I'm a bit of a sucker for, everything from the simple yet clean graphics to the extremely crispy sound effects added to the whole picture.

The final package is so simple, yet so amazing. It gave me the feeling of actually being there, thanks to those superbly recorded/processed effects (yes, I'm praising them again).

The animation is lovely smooth, which I think is a big plus for flash games (and games in general, really).

The only complaints I'd have is what has been mentioned before. The game is a tad too short (albeit packed with atmosphere and a pinch of humour) and that certain screens tend to be "memorise-until-you-die(live)" (I'm especially thinking of the growing ice one, where you have to stand on a particular spot to get lifted up).

However, having said that, I still think this game deserves a score of 10 here and a vote of 5. Again: LOVE the atmosphere.
