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.

6.9.2012 UPDATE:

I think I found out what was causing the humongous lag for some people. This has hopefully now been fixed. Please tell me if you're still experiencing lag! Also if you find bugs, please describe what kind of a bug you encountered!

24.9. UPDATE

Added medals to the title screen.

25.10. UPDATE
Added possibility to control with mouse clicks. Also added 'R' as a quick restart key.



Rated 0 / 5 stars

It needs far more variety such as power ups, upgrades, or hinderences to count this as even a game.

This game is full of glitches, unoriginal, and simply so laggy that it cannot be played.

Full of glitches? Care to mention one?

Unoriginal? How come? This isn't just about throwing the javelin, and I haven't seen any games like this. "Tossing" games I find far less original on average. What game is this copying?

I unfortunately noticed the lagging just after submitting this. For some reason the same version lagged badly on NG, even though it didn't lag on Mochi. But I updated the game so that now it shouldn't be lagging any more.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

I understand the idea behind the game and it is a good one but it needs work.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

I think the idea of this game is really nice, but the "1-button" thing just doesn't fit right in this type of game. So with new controls this game would be 5/5.

It was a quickly made game for the Mochi competition in July, and one of the rules was that it should be a 1-button game. Otherwise I'd probably have added one extra button for the controls.
