Welcome to one of the less well-known summer games events: the Suicide Javelin. In this event you can increase your overall distance by getting hit by your own javelin!

Use 'J' for all the gameplay controls:
-1. Set the angle by pressing 'J' (and keep holding it to run).
-2. Throw the javelin by releasing 'J'
-3. Accelerate the rocket by pressing 'J'. Release 'J' to break.

- 'ESC' to get back to menu (eg. for restarting game).
- 'R' for quick restart during game.
- 'M' to toggle mute.
- 'H' to show hiscores in title or demo screen.

6.9.2012 UPDATE:

I think I found out what was causing the humongous lag for some people. This has hopefully now been fixed. Please tell me if you're still experiencing lag! Also if you find bugs, please describe what kind of a bug you encountered!

24.9. UPDATE

Added medals to the title screen.

25.10. UPDATE
Added possibility to control with mouse clicks. Also added 'R' as a quick restart key.

can i have a hint on how to get the master thrower medal?

JeffersonTD responds:

No magic tricks there, just start running and try to throw at about a 45 degree angle from the end of the runway. The timing doesn't need to be 100% perfect, but pretty close to that, so it is a very difficult medal.

OK, what's the deal behind the Master Thrower medal? No matter what i try the closest i get is 99.07 with is ridiculous... Spend like a hour and still can't get it! :P

It's a good game tho!

Thanks for the review, and glad you like the game. Yes, the master thrower is the toughest medal to get, but it's still possible. Getting over 101 meters might already be impossible though. :)

Wow, this was a challenging game for sure. The last medal took me about 2 hours to get into the groove of things. I only have a few complaints with this game and the main ones are with the art/animation. The art for the runner was sub-par and his running looked very sloppy. The last thing is the camera view. I know it makes it more challenging the way it currently is, but if the camera zoomed all the way out after you threw the javelin I think it would improve the overall play of the game.

Interesting twist on the toss-type games though. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad you liked it in general.

Both your criticisms are also well founded. The dude was very quickly scribbled and I never did a rehaul on him. A better camera view would probably also make the game more pleasant to play.
