THE GAME IS NOT BROKEN! (the preloader is however).

Not for those who have any of the following:
- A weak will.
- No sense of timing.
- A fear of killing caveman.
- Some sort of heart condition.
- Are pregnant

Play the role of God and undo the mistake of creating humanity, by killing it in it's early stages. You've already frozen up the world, and trapped them in their caves. Now drop deadly icicles on the cavemen successively to win. There are different obstacles that change throughout the game that make it increasingly difficult. If you win this game you are indeed a god, it's HARD!

This game is made for the Newgrounds GameJam, and is produced from scratch in *stops timer* 59 hours.

"It's like Stacker, but without the cool prizes"

2000 views in and the game still hasn't been beaten.... someone has reached like .. MAXIMUM of level 24, but then he would've had to hit 5's everytime so I guess level 15 is the highest?

To celebrate the new year ( here in holland ) I've fixed some bugs and polished a bit more.
- tranistion not working bug should be fixed;
- sign not fully showing text is fixed

HAPPY NEWYEAR, and... still not beaten, good luck!

-I've lowered the requirements for the 50 points medal to reaching level 15.
-I've ever so slightly tweaked the horrible level 12!

Yay! Frontpaged, thank you all players and ofcourse the grandmaster himself Tom Fulp. :P
Let me know if this fixes the lag please! (waiting approval)
- Did some code patching.

The guy on the top of the scoreboard ( score 500 ) is a cheater, it's way more then the maximum score.

it was interesting

People...read! The title of the game is "Icy Cave of Frustration!" What do you expect other than frustration? I found it actually rather entertaining and interesting!

it was fun

just because its challenging doesn't meen its bad. so what if you have to start over. if you got there once you can get there again. the summary option is to congratulate or give helpful tips for followup games not a place to say you did this, this, and this wrong. instead of being mean just say what you want to happen. But besides all of that... I thought it was a very good game

Difficult vs. annoying

~ Each level is difficult. That is fun and interesting.
~ Starting at the beginning each time you fail is annoying. That is tiresome and frustrating.

~ Killing cavemen with a falling icicle from a height is difficult. That is entertaining.
~ The voice when you succeed or fail is annoying. That is grating.

~ Struggling to beat a practically impossible game is difficult. That feels good.
~ Struggling to beat an actually impossible game is annoying. That feels bad.

So, if you make this game difficult, rather than annoying, I think it would fun, interesting, entertaining, and feel good.
But right now, your game is tiresome, frustrating, grating, and bad.
