Have you ever *almost* beat a level and then thrown the controller because you were so angry at how cheap a death was? This 30-stage room escape game was designed with that spirit in mind. The developer may have sparked a “throw your keyboard” movement & purchased shares in Logitech while coding the game – it is so frustratingly difficult 😀
Move from side to side while avoiding spikes.
Dash to cross wide chasms.
Avoid falling off platform (or standing on a disappearing ledge too long) and make it to the flag at the end of each stage.

Controls & indicators
The upper left corner of the screen has a button to go to the level select screen.
The current level number is shown top center.
The upper right corner of the screen has a sound control button.
The level select screen shows the level numbers of unlocked levels & lock symbols for levels which are still locked.
When you jump this game only offers a single jump, but you can extend the length of your jump by doing a sprint while in midair.
One aspect of the game which is a bit forgiving is if there is a small gap between the edge of a platform and the edge of the level you typically will not fall off.
On the flip side, many jumps require you to hit the sprint almost perfectly at the apex of a jump to climb to a higher platform while moving across the screen.
It is quite easy to overjump targets if you are not careful.
Changing directions & approach
When using the sprint you have to be soft with the arrow key not to move too far in the direction you are sprinting.
On many levels you have to sprint in one direction & then quickly jump back in the opposite direction while not using sprint & you have to be more aggressive with using the horizontal movement keys when changing direction & not sprinting.
The game has many moving platforms you must time your jumps onto (or time avoiding).
In some cases you need to move quickly when you get on a moving platform as they can lead into spikes.
Some platforms consist of a series of small ice cube squares.
The ice cubes melt and disappear quickly after you step on them.
If you are moving onto a disappearing platform be sure to keep moving horizontally across it, or rapidly jump up to the next platform.
Some levels have a series of consecutive disappearing platforms. If you get to a solid regular platform in the middle of the level treat it as an intermission so you can regather and time your movements across the rest of the level, particularly if there are a series of moving or disappearing platforms.
This game has 30 levels which are unlocked sequentially.
You can go back and replay beat levels at any time.
The first couple levels are easy, but the game’s difficulty level ramps up rather quickly.
If you fall off platform or touch spikes you die.
This game offers unlimited continues & restarts you at the beginning of any level you die on.
The game is suited for players who like pixelated games or level escape games.
This game is quite difficult.
Most younger children will likely quickly get frustrated playing it.
Experienced gamers who liked playing masochistically difficult games on the original NES will likely enjoy this game.
The game has no adult themed content.
