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.

I cant stop...

Really great concept and execution. The game is almost a backseat to the charm and quirkiness of the characters. I loved the variations, a simple concept with alot of creative variety. Great stuff.

Wha???

This has got to be one of the weirdest games I have ever played. I have no understanding of why it appears to be the same guy coming over and over. Well, enemies in most games look the same anyway. My computer seemed to have some glitch because it pressed down even when I didn't press the spacebar. I was completely dumbfounded when I was fired the first time. Seeing as how the preview icon showed a guy, I thought I was going to be controlling him!

It was hard to tell what was a cut scene and what was actual gameplay. Congrats on making an incomprehensible game. I can't really dislike it, because the graphics and sound and everything else were done well. I don't even know how many times you have to miss to even get fired in the first place! It takes a twisted mind to make this, friend.

This is quite interesting

Let me start off by saying this is one of the few flashes that creep me out in a sense. The fact that the spike trap pretty much get's off killing these people and the eye twitching and stuff is a little unnerving to me. Which I find awesome, like I said before, not many things do that for me.

The game itself is fun, and cool to the fact that it is so simple, yet hard. Sometimes annoying but what hard games aren't. The animation, sounds, music are fantastic. Love this style, even the menu is great and smooth.

The interaction between the spike trap and the adventurers are great as well, all the expression in the eyes of the trap bring so much character to it. Which is sad to say that it has more character in it than most games I see now a days. Job well done.

Keep up the awesome work and I can't wait to see more stuff you come up with. I actually have been waiting for a castlevania/metroid clone to come out that has graphics like these. But that is quite a lot of work to be done. Either way this is awesome and keep up the great animation
