DISCLAIMER:
First:
THE GAME IS NOT BROKEN! (the preloader is however).

Second:
Not for those who have any of the following:
- A weak will.
- No sense of timing.
- A fear of killing caveman.
- Some sort of heart condition.
- Are pregnant

Play the role of God and undo the mistake of creating humanity, by killing it in it's early stages. You've already frozen up the world, and trapped them in their caves. Now drop deadly icicles on the cavemen successively to win. There are different obstacles that change throughout the game that make it increasingly difficult. If you win this game you are indeed a god, it's HARD!

This game is made for the Newgrounds GameJam, and is produced from scratch in *stops timer* 59 hours.

"It's like Stacker, but without the cool prizes"

EDIT:
2000 views in and the game still hasn't been beaten.... someone has reached like .. MAXIMUM of level 24, but then he would've had to hit 5's everytime so I guess level 15 is the highest?
WILL YOU BE THE FIRST!!?!?

To celebrate the new year ( here in holland ) I've fixed some bugs and polished a bit more.
- tranistion not working bug should be fixed;
- sign not fully showing text is fixed

HAPPY NEWYEAR, and... still not beaten, good luck!

-I've lowered the requirements for the 50 points medal to reaching level 15.
-I've ever so slightly tweaked the horrible level 12!

Yay! Frontpaged, thank you all players and ofcourse the grandmaster himself Tom Fulp. :P
- ADDED QUALITY CHANGE BUTTON, PRESS Q TO CHANGE QUAILTY ( ONLY ON A LEVEL ITSELF )!!
Let me know if this fixes the lag please! (waiting approval)
- Did some code patching.

The guy on the top of the scoreboard ( score 500 ) is a cheater, it's way more then the maximum score.

Another one butten game.

I reley dont wan to sound like an ass, but yeah, what everybody else said. This game is frustrating. I know it says Icy Cave of Frustration but there has to be a limit. Plus, skill games like these should be level progression games where you don't restart on the first level once you lose. Forget the fact that all you do is press the spacebar, there's absolutely no problem in that. The concept is okay, but the delivery is bad, I'm not sure why, but I don't fancy the music either.

my half-life isn't long enough

Kind of makes me think of a hypothetical game where you're a radioactive atom with a half-life of 1 second, and the goal of the game is to survive for 10 seconds. Or 20 seconds. You want to know why so few have won it, that's why! Each time, you have a probability of making the shot, a probability of missing. If you're good and you have a smooth running computer, maybe 80% probability once you get a bit into it. But what's 0.8 to the 20th power? A small number, that's what. But that's only the start of the difficulty. At least on my computer, with this game, I have a profound disadvantage, because it stalls often, and runs slower at some times than others - so if I see cameman A walking at a certain rate, I'm not really sure if he's walking at the same pace I saw caveman B walking at a minute earlier just because he looks like he's walking the same speed, and it may turn out he's actually walking faster but my computer is stalling more, and so the icicle falls slower than I imagined because it only looked like the caveman was walking slowly because my computer was stalling and I miss.

I also am annoyed by the fact that I got past 100 points once but because I wasn't logged in, it doesn't show up. I then logged in, and it still didn't show up, so apparently you must be logged in AT the time or else your score is consigned to oblivion. Hmph.

On the other hand, though it is tedious, it IS at least potentially possible for you to carry yourself on from any point. By contrast I recently played another game 2 times, because that was all I could stand, where you had to know what was coming and prepare for it, either through precognition or having played the game before up to that point, because you would have to respond to a situation faster than your little ship could move, and if you didn't, you had to start all the way over (like this). At least with this, there's no memorizing necessary, if you have a steady computer, there is a clearly observable periodic range of time you can press the button to hit the target and proceed through the game. Kind of like one of those price is right games, where you want the price of the thing to fall in a certain range.

The "you got it", "all right" and "kickin' ass" interjections are very annoying, however. Though I could imagine it being more annoying, if there was an instrumental funeral dirge or something. Still, you should take that out.

Screw this, more frustrating than fun.

It is what it is though, there is some charm to it.
