Thanks for the feature Tom!

Apologies, Icycle doesn't seem to run for some Ubuntu users. Try updating your flash plugin?

The next ice age has arrived and the world as we know it has peacefully frozen in time, but to one naked survivor it's cold and lonely as hell!

Icycle is a contemporary take on a RETRO style bike game which challenges your skill and memory. Trial and error will pave the way but remembering the path might prove harder than you expect. Collect as many bubbles as possible but be prepared for plenty of amusing fatalities along the way.

If only dying was this much fun in life!

Instructions: Ride over the icy terrain collecting bubbles while avoiding various hazzards. The push bike can only advance, you can not back pedal so remembering the best route is part of the challenge. You can influence your altitude over thermals with up and down keys.
Use the skull & crossbones button to commit suicide if the bike ever gets stuck.
Gain a new item of clothing each time you complete the game!

BUt whats with the monkey at the end? :D

it's ok

it's a good game, very artistic and creative, just that I couldn't even beat level 6...for me the colors got a bit annoying because sometimes I couldn't see hazards, then when level 6 came around, I can't get past the part at the end with the thermal pocket, I don't know how I'm supposed to clear that, no matter how many times I press up and down. The back pedaling system could maybe also use a bit of fine tuning, and actually be able to back pedal instead of just stopping

pretend you're on a kids swing! :)
push up when you're going up, and down when you're going down. There is also a hint tab that appears when you approach this cliff edge with the up and down arrows, but most people seem to miss it somehow.

it was a decent game, it was just....well in my opinion its not front page worthy, not to bring you down but i didn't really have fun playing, but it was still not compleate garbage

Great game, very artistic. Something to puzzle over, however: how can this guy get such good traction on ice?
