UPDATE: Added a Kill key and made some changes to the online highscore. Please wait for the update to be processed!
UPDATE2: Seems like the site lock does not work right. So, Flash Stealers, grab it while you can. An update with the lock removed should be processed any minute now. (Kill key is still in there, though)
UPDATE3: Retrying the site lock. If it fails again: don't worry, I'm working on it!
UPDATE4: Some graphical stuff and performance improvements.

~ A Ludum Dare #21 Entry - a competition where you have to make a game in 48 hours.

You're trapped in some kind of endless corridor, with two hooks and lava chasing you. Best story ever, right?

Try to escape the advancing lava with your hooks and swing around obstacles in your way, as the wave gets faster and faster, until just a single mistake seals your fate as you are engulfed in the hot doom.

Think you got a good score? Submit it to the online highscores and compete with all the players!

In-Game Controls:
A/Left - Fire black hook
D/Right - Fire blue hook
The hooks are fired at your mouse cursor. They only stick to the black walls!
K - Suicide

Brill!

Hey, Suyo, this is pretty awesome! 103km, beat th-- oh wait, your high score is 230km...
The only gripe I have is sometimes I get to an impossible bit... but that's only very rarely.

To all of you who get stuck, don't use two hooks on either side of the room, just swing round using both hooks. For more of an explanation, go here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3ewev V1nf4

NOTE: Suyo is his Runouw.com nickname.

(oh god it's you)
In my 10 hours of playtesting, I have encountered no impossible places. If you could send me a screenshot of some you encounter, that would be great!

Really cool

First try 85 km.
used the first 5 to figure out the game mechanic, after that was awsum.
Btw i don't see a good reason to give a low review score just because it's a simple game and some button is apparently missing, false statement 'cause the retry is the A button, obviously you have to die to use it, if not, why do you need one?

Needs a restart button.

This definitely needs a restart button.


SuperyoshiIsGreat responds:

While I don't understand why you rate a 2 just because a Restart button is missing, I have added one. As soon the update is there, you can press K to kill yourself.
