Fun, well-made game with a clear and interesting concept. It explores the theme of getting righteously fucked by random chance but does it in a controlled and clever way. Each screen has a unique method of convincing the player that death can be avoided, but sometimes it can't. Sometimes, no matter how much you want to survive, you just have to die.

I enjoy this game quite a lot. The gimmick and the challenge is the RNG present in all the platforming. It is a shorter game, with less than 10 screens, but you will spend some time grinding for some workable RNG. Sometimes the spikes will jitter rapidly in unpredictable directions, sometimes they will fall from the sky at varying speed. It is absurd at times, but never unreasonable, and there are tricks to mitigate the bullshit potential of the RNG. I don't quite understand the all negative reviews for this game, because the RNG seems comparable to what you would encounter in a boss. I think the random element of the platforming is really fun, and implemented in a decent way.

The RNG makes this game hard as hell.

Screen 1: You activate a trigger and the spikes go nuts. Good luck making it back up.
Screen 2: A simple avoidance. Spikes swirl around and you avoid until the counter ticks down.
Screen 3: My favorite screen, you activate triggers and spikes shoot off in a random direction. Be careful of the traps waiting at the end.
Screen 4: Hit a trigger and just wait. Get lucky. Don't get hit.
Screen 5. You walk right, spikes bob up and down. I just held right the entire time about 300 times. The fun part is guessing which spike will kill you.
Screen 6: A 30 second avoidance in which you fly through the sky on a spike while spikes rain down.

Reminder that every screen has a lot of RNG.
P.S.: There's a lot of RNG in this game.

A notorious romp through RNGville, it has a good balance of creativity to counter its outright stupidity that makes it fairly fun and entertaining whilst still being objectively bad. Expect spikes that fly at you fast and in usual ways.

This is a classic of the intentionally bad style for a reason, as it stands out in a few ways. Even with the RNG reliance, it is not an easy game and should not be attempted by newer players under any circumstances and it will just seem frustrating and stupid (especially the third screen which even ignoring RNG factors requires some solid confidence with a long save of needle), but if you're a bit more experienced and looking for a timesink where things make no sense, feel free to take a look.

For some reason I had fun with this game. I have no idea why.
