Gradient Man Demo

Share Collapse

Author Comments

This is a demo for a new game Skutieos and I are making.

In it, you play as Gradient Man, a square who you control with the mouse. This flash is the arcade mode, where you collect coins and avoid bombs for as long as you can stay alive. It is randomized, so the bombs and coins could appear at any location on the screen. If a coins appears behind a bomb, the bomb becomes transparent.

There's a high score list. Hit send to send your high score, but type your name into the name box! (Yes, you have to type it again after getting "refresh page to retry.") My high score is 92.
EDIT: Please do not spam the list.
EDIT2: ArmorBot appears to now have been ended. No more highscores, just try to beat 92.

Also, there was a glitch in an earlier version that would cause Gradient Man, after hitting two bombs at the same time, to fly off uncontrollably into a strange direction. This glitch should be fixed now, but if it isn't, remember Gradient Man will respawn in the center. There is another glitch that remains unfixed, however. Sometimes Gradient Man with get stuck in the top or left boundary. If this happens, you will have to restart.

BTW, there's no preloader because the file is only 128 kbs. If your PC can't load it within a minute, I doubt it has the power to actually play the game. In addition, this flash has been resized from 800x800 to 700x700, due to a height/width limit.

enjoyable,entertaining,and slightly addicting!

This game is fun, i love how you sortof mixed snake with one of those mouse maze games. it was very enjoyable and is something to do to pass the time.

It's a good game.

The graphics are decent. The sound is soothing, the controls are nice. It's a pretty good game. Unfortunatly I can't find much reason to play it more than once. It's just not comepelling enough of a game.

More depth will be added in the full version.

Pretty Good

I want expecting this, the graphics make it look like a cheesy old game but it is pretty fun!


This Game is Great. but there are Errors, such as the coins sometimes spawn into the bombs, and sometimes the coins spawn outside of the boundries once you hit 80 or so points. Also I know your fixing all these errors in your new addition.
But overall its a very good game.


Its a fun little game, and it has alot of promise. But sometimes the coins are in the same spot as the bombs, which causes you to lose a life. Also it will get boring if your just playing for a "high score", so maybe adding a feature or two would help. Overall, its entertaining.
