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.

Nice but

Needs a skip intro option

Good Fun

Simple fun. Nicely done, in the future fleshing it out with maybe a proper "story" and some more modes would make the replay value higher.



Seems like a decent enough game

It's rather clever, and I'm able to see enough of the game to understand the concept in its entirety. However, I'm having a problem with it. If I press the spacebar, the spike goes absolutely wild and he starts slamming down automatically over and over again, despite me hitting the spacebar only once.

This is not a problem that creeps up in other games, but I'm not positive of where this problem is coming from.
