It's not easy being a spike-trap. By design, players are supposed to get by you without TOO much trouble. But you just can't do that. After years of seeing the same guy running by, over and over, day after day -- you realize you're in love. Unfortunately, the only means by which you can express this love is by showing him how good you are at crushing him into a tasty broth. Someday, you're sure, he'll get the hint.
This game was made with the wonderful Flashpunk, which made the nightmare of making this a lot less nightmarish, and more of a restless bad dream.
PROTIPS: Be patient. Wait for the right moment to strike! It takes a second or two to reset yourself, and in that time he can escape! Unless there's a powerup he'll never just run straight through.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Fun and interesting concept. Timing games are always fun, and even though the sequence of trials never changes, it's nice that you added some random elements to each event; I was waiting for him to hop one more time and he sprinted off. It's nice to have some variety in a game such as this, and survival mode is a nice addition, but I can't wait for the next installment.

Speaking of which, if you've played this game and are interested in a sequel, the author is currently raising funds for his next game on kickstarter. I won't post a link, but you can go to the author's page and follow the link in his latest news post. There's only a few hours left, and he needs about $459 before it ends and all that cash gets refunded. If you want to see the next game with all of the awesome new features he has listed as well as I do, then please make a quick contribution!

Overall, I'm very impressed with the concept, and I can't wait for the next round of poor Red-haired-Guys. Good luck in development!
