All you have to do is reach the check point at the other side. That's not too hard, right? Just try to do it in the fewest number of lives possible if you can please.

Some of our testers have said: "is this another one of those games where you're a test subject and the computer is talking to you?" The answer is no. You are not a test subject, there is no computer.

We just wanted to taunt the hell out of you while you die over and over again. :)



Instructions are in game, press 'P' to pause. Avoid the hamburgers.



@antanas: No, you idiot. In Karoshi you're trying to kill yourself, not get to a checkpoint. By your standards ever platformer is a copy of every other platformer.

Anyway, this game is in desperate need of saving. The game glitched when I fell down a pitfall where some platforms were rising and it wouldn't kill me or let me do anything. I mean you don't even have to save cookies or anything. Just let the player resume at their level after quitting. Even a restart level button would suffice.

Well, naw...

This kind of game is just old meme at this point, I think. The disembodied, derisive, cynical voice especially. I've never actually played portal, but at this point I'm pretty sure I'd hate it due to over referencing in every flash game made around the time it came out.

The controls were pretty bad too. All swishy and sloppy. A platfomer needs tight reactive controls. In spite of that, though, the game wasn't very difficult or puzzley. That isn't really a bad thing, but there wasn't much to carry the game besides gameplay, and the gameplay wasn't really there.

Really cool

It's a cool game, the taunts are funny and the music is pretty awesome, sounds like it could be in a
2-d metroid side scroller. oh and for antanas98, no it's not a copy of that game because the point of this game is to get to the checkpoint, not to kill yourself.

copied game

this game was copied and its much worse. the real game id "Karoshi: the suicide salaryman".
