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

Second:
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"

EDIT:
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?
WILL YOU BE THE FIRST!!?!?

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
- ADDED QUALITY CHANGE BUTTON, PRESS Q TO CHANGE QUAILTY ( ONLY ON A LEVEL ITSELF )!!
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.

Too hard!

It's not fun when it's that hard! Also, that voice was so annoying.I'm only giving it a 4, because the graphics were good.

Difficulty =/= Fun

Some challenge is always good, but forcing us to replay the entire game every time we miss is just a lazy attempt to lengthen the game.

Another one butten game.

I reley dont wan to sound like an ass, but yeah, what everybody else said. This game is frustrating. I know it says Icy Cave of Frustration but there has to be a limit. Plus, skill games like these should be level progression games where you don't restart on the first level once you lose. Forget the fact that all you do is press the spacebar, there's absolutely no problem in that. The concept is okay, but the delivery is bad, I'm not sure why, but I don't fancy the music either.
