How To Play!

You, as the player, must dodge the obstacles and avoid shrinking to death. You can do this by consuming "powerups" with the spacebar. This will increase your size. Get more powerups by picking up the diamond-shaped objects. You have to be at least as large as the diamond to pick it up, otherwise you will pass right through it!

  • The game speeds up as it progresses.
  • The smaller you are, the faster you can go.
  • What's your high score? Post it in the comments!


  • Use the mouse or WASD/arrow keys and enter/space to navigate menus
  • Use WASD or the arrow keys to move.
  • Press space to use powerups.

I love the graphics and music, but I can't make it far. I'm pretty sure that the yellow things are meant to increase your size, but they don't for me, and I end up just shrinking completely in a couple of seconds. The camera's also zoomed in a bit too much. It looks really nice though.

Thanks for the feedback! Just as an FYI, to use the yellow things you press space :)


Nice game, good design and music :) It would be nice, if I coiuld see more forwards, sometimes I just die because its too late to dodge, cuz I couldnt see :)
