It's not easy being a spike-trap. By design, players are supposed to get by you without TOO much trouble. But you just can't do that. After years of seeing the same guy running by, over and over, day after day -- you realize you're in love. Unfortunately, the only means by which you can express this love is by showing him how good you are at crushing him into a tasty broth. Someday, you're sure, he'll get the hint.
This game was made with the wonderful Flashpunk, which made the nightmare of making this a lot less nightmarish, and more of a restless bad dream.
PROTIPS: Be patient. Wait for the right moment to strike! It takes a second or two to reset yourself, and in that time he can escape! Unless there's a powerup he'll never just run straight through.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

of course it's a crush fetishist

This game becomes easier (and funnier) if you lean in very, very, very close to your monitor and inspect the guy's every movement, facial expression, and gesture extremely carefully. In other words, think like the spike trap--you're (disturbingly) in love with this man. Obviously nobody's going to do well the first time, though.
You can usually trigger yourself while the guy's at the extreme left-hand side of the screen without having him rush past you afterwards, if you're in love with the floor too.

Simple but surprisingly fun!

This is a nice, simple game, but told from an unexpected point of view. Love the retro style graphics. Great work!

We're pleased to make this our indie game of the week. :)

Spike - love story?

"Spike - love story" but there's no story. everything's same and not interesting. there are games without story and they're much more interesting, like "Toss the turtle". It's replaying but still addictive and interesting whole time. there are upgrades and other stuff. that's why your game is bad


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

ok but not awesome

this game was good but it could have been better because there was barely a plot but i think it did not have enough effort put into it.
