Welcome to one of the less well-known summer games events: the Suicide Javelin. In this event you can increase your overall distance by getting hit by your own javelin!

Use 'J' for all the gameplay controls:
-1. Set the angle by pressing 'J' (and keep holding it to run).
-2. Throw the javelin by releasing 'J'
-3. Accelerate the rocket by pressing 'J'. Release 'J' to break.

- 'ESC' to get back to menu (eg. for restarting game).
- 'R' for quick restart during game.
- 'M' to toggle mute.
- 'H' to show hiscores in title or demo screen.

Can't seem to even get past 100m. :/ Doesn't seem like timing the angle's so difficult, but no matter how good the angle, it just doesn't get very far. Confused at to how the 'Rocket' works as well. If you throw short, you can see how the character jumps aboard and starts moving forward, but it seems like the javelin flies waaaay past the character no matter how much you accelerate. Does the character even move from the starting point? No mention of the rocket in the demo, either. I'm starting to suspect I'm missing something vital... seems like a fun game otherwise, but either medal amounts are insane, or I'm really missing something here.

JeffersonTD responds:

There are multiple demos. Some of them show you the player successfully using the rocket. If you throw the javelin very far at a low angle, you can't reach it with the rocket, but if you throw at a higher angle, you can reach it. The rocket accelerates as long as you press the button.

Thanks for the review!

It's a fun, original game, but it's pretty difficult to get used to.
