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.


Great game. An exellent example of thinking outside the box. The difficulty is high enough to keep the game above a basic 2013 "run-through-with-arms-tied" kind of thing.

The only fix I suggest is the ability to skip the cutscenes that commence A. After selecting story mode, but before the game starts and B. When you fail. This is because even though the game itself is interesting and challenging, the busy people of this glorious decade might get frustrated over the fact they have to wait every time the fail at the game, especially when the cutscenes do not add to the story or anything after seeing them once or twice.

Keep it up. Keep it different.
