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! a good spikes with adventure

great game

my fav bit was the meta humor involved in the review quotes scoring your performance. It's attention to detail like that...

I love it

I love your concept and creativity with the story. It's a shame you did not incorporate that in the main game (you put the explanation in the description). I didn't get that in the first run through that he/she/it was in love. Anyway, this is fun, addicting, and funny. With a few tries and enough concentration, people should be able to get the hang of it.

I did find it a little frustrating on waiting through the intro every time I tried to re-do story mode, which can be a little annoying if you try to get 25 in story mode, but I guess that's just a part of the frustration the challenge is supposed to give you.

It isn't much of a deal breaker, but I felt like the story needed more closure.

I enjoyed the animations and various creative (and desperate) attempts of the man trying to get across. I give it an 8/10

Poor thwomps

Boy Inever knew how those thwomps felt. Now I'm never going to be able to not get crushed by one without feeling like I've hurt its feelings. God forbid of the 10th plumber he missed that week. he might get fired. That thwomp has thwimps to feed
