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.

pixel work at its best

i love this game i just love it. First of all you are just a spike trap thing which is a good start. I thought it was going to be a game where you are the guy trying to dodge all these spike traps. But i was way off, i don't know if there is a game out there where you can be the actual spike trap. Well i am going to talk about the story, all i know is that you are trying to get hired to a spike trap in a dungeon so its a good story. And if you actually kill enough you will get hired, and if you don't get enough then you will be fired to be a spike trap. Well the only button that you press is the space bar, which is easier to learn then w,a,s,d keys so thats pretty cool. well i may be overreacting about this game but thats because i like it. So thats my review ericmcmeric out.

not too bad...

This game is surprisingly fun and challenging. It's not the most original concept, but that's ok lol. The AI's are nicely done, but once you figure out the ai's patterns, then the game becomes very easy. It's too bad that i haven't completely memorized the patterns yet lol.

Im jay and i approve this game (:D)

Hehe

I really like the idea of the player being the cliche trap.
Would be nice if you were able to upgrade (maybe add mobility) or customize your looks.
Maybe you could also add the ability to play as other well known traps,
like a trap door which has deadly spikes below it or maybe a fire trap.
Also it would be nice to have more heroes/noobs/gold farmers and the likes to get into an unfortunate "accident".

Hope you can use these tips.
Keep up the good job.
