Fabulous flash game alert: /Escape\

I did a lot of fun things this past weekend: I baked, played tennis, read a bit of Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and wrote a number of posts for this blog.

I also spent (some would say wasted) a good chunk of time playing /ESCAPE\, a Flash game that was created--in 72 hours, no less--by Ian Brock (graphics), Josh Schonstal (programming) and Guerin McMurry (music) for Ludum Dare 21 and that's now playable at kongregate.com.

For those of you who need to know a bit of information about a game, even free ones like /ESCAPE\, before giving it a go: It's a score-attack title that tasks players with wall-jumping again and again and again in an attempt to avoid being impaled by spikes and singed by an ever-advancing laser beam.

One of the best parts of /ESCAPE\, in my opinion: It requires the use of just one keyboard button. (What can I say? I'm lazy.)

Oh, and in case any of your are curious: My high score so far is 258.

Yes, try it -- and then tell me when you beat my score :)

OMG! I got all excited and then died at...wait for it...258. Damn.

Bryan Ochalla said...

Ha! That is too funny :) I've yet to even get close to that score again. I always tend to die around 150...

Is 180 any good? :(

I suck at one button games, I even suck at canabalt :(

Hey, I think I've only gotten over 200 twice, Trxd, so 180 is fine!
