You are a piano, which, logically enough, is susceptible to gravity.

I cried savage tears of hopelessness...

I laughed till I cried... bitter tears of foolish pride. Why... why did this game move me so? Have you been granted talent from some sort of extra-dimensional being?... Pine nuts?... Perhaps you need not reveal your source. Bless you, space-honkey.

Was this supposed to be a game?

I see this classified as a game of Skill - Avoid. I assume that means that you move the piano with either the arrow keys or the mouse to avoid the parachutists. However, not only does it lack instructions, nothing I did seemed to have any effect on the fall of the piano. Furthermore, said piano, which I assume I'm supposed to be controlling, is off-screen most of the time, so luck would do more than skill. Finally, the Alien bit at the end is pointless and should be removed and maybe reused in another Flash.

Now that the scathing review is out of the way, I can tell you that the song fits very well, and I liked the way the background reflected the fall. So, either have resubmit this as a movie, or actually make it playable.

Weak game.

No explanation of controls, so the first time I loaded it I didn't know what the hell to do and nothing, at all, seemed to effect the thing. I hardly even saw the piano--out the gate it was weaving mostly off-screen wildly. I reloaded the thing and noticed it stayed on-screen a little more, but otherwise no different of an experience. On the third reload, I could finally steer the thing.

Which leads to the game itself. It's too short and that lack of game-play is made all the more egregious by the simplicity of what there is. Weave around and try to hit parachutes. Okay.

And what was with the alien-looking things at the very end? No context, and the suddenness of it makes me wonder if it was an attempt at some new version of a Rick Roll.

I didn't understand it at first, but I loled so hard at the end XD great job :D

Is this even a game?

Downwards scrolling background, three or five parashoots, and something that might be a piano just barely showing on the edge of the screen now and then.
