When I was in high school our school sucked, because they only had Macs. That's right, no cool stuff like quake inbetween periods. But there was one game for the poor old Mac OS that even our outdated school computers could run, NS Shaft. This is a 21st century remake of that truly amazing game.

The controls are simple, left and right arrow keys. Avoid falling off the bottom of the screen and don't get crushed by the spikes in the collapsing ceiling. The longer you can survive, the higher your score.

If you step on a red platform you lose some health, but you can regain it by stepping on non lethal platforms. There are also some conveyer belts and spring boards to keep you on your toes.

This is my first try at flash programming, I hope you enjoy it! Please drop me a line at carl.flashgames@gmail.com if you have any questions at all.


Update: The mochi board does no longer show up automatically. Thanx for your comments!!!
Edit: Sorry for introducing another bug making it even harder to restart :) Should be fixed now!

Addicting lol,

great game
although simple, very fun (y)
the "classic" graphics and gameplay dont spoil i, but add a sort of charm to it

would definitely benefit from having jump though!


good sound

having one life makes you play hard! It's good

cool retro

game looks good plays O.K. and is fun... and very addictive.
i dislike the extremely random spawn.
some times it gives me 5 bars of spikes.
i would like to jump in this game btw.

Great, Bringing bAck a Classic!
