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!

And it really makes me reconsider what I put all those spike traps in games through. I now know what they really trully feel, and I should be nicer to them from now on...

...actually, on second thought, I'll just continue to dodge spikes better than the guys in this game did. :D

I would imagine that this game started out as a simple idea. Thus it turned into a very simple game, don't let the guy past the right side of the screen. That doesn't stop this game from being addicting and beautifully done.

The game looks crisp. I love the choice of pixels over art style on this one, and the music matches the games feel perfectly. The spike trap has a character, which is rather hard considering he's a spike trap.

The game play is incredibly addicting. I'm constantly finishing with 24 out of 25 of the people killed, and it's a rushing motivation to continue driving onward.

I'd love to see more like this in the future.
