A legend tells of an island of flightless birds.
Said birds are required to do a sacrifice. Each year, they throw one unlucky bird into the "Abyss" to spare the others from damnation.
It is told that a bird may climb out and break the island's curse.
This is not the story of the one who succeeds.
This is the story of the ones who fail.

Absolutely love the game! Unfortunately I did not get two of the medals and have tried refreshing!

I have been occasionally playing this for a few months and finally got all the medals on year 376.

Good game, unlike most arcade games with endless and therefore pointless game length and inevitable death, this one had a lot of medals and various skins to keep me interested and therefore deserves a good score. It is commendable that there are a lot of different obstacle types that appear rather high in the cave so players interest is reinvigorated and it's not just the same stuff over and over again for a long time.

Glad to hear people still play this! Thank you :)

Too bad, I was sure that all medals I could unlocked would be saved to my account, but that one called "Death Loop" terribly glitched. Besides, crushers are those spiked bars moving from left to right in vertical position that only start to appear from 200m right ? Wow that's really a hard medal to get.

Mantis1 responds:

Do you have the medal in-game? In that case, when you refresh the page (f5) and start again, the game will attempt to resubmit your medal to your NG account!

nice game. some medals unlocked but not received. fix please

Mantis1 responds:

I remember that the game will try to re-upload your unlocked medals in the intro menu where it says "Save Loaded".

If that doesn't resolve your problem, then I'm sorry, but I lost my tools and I no longer remember how to code flash games (moved to Unity), so I can't fix it :(

Edit: I think your medals are received now!
