Xycle
Xycle is a short game I made to pass the time. *WARNING* trial and error gameplay. You play as a man on a motorcycle trying to get through the day. The controls are Z key to jump, and X key to shoot. Shoot gray oil drums or you will die. you will need quick reflexes to beat this game.


Target platforms:



It has a nice style to it, but it gets frustrating very quickly.

Very nice, fun, and frustrating.

I am sooo glad their are checkpoints!

Also, I like the music, 9/10

Haven't played it yet, but it looks veeeery nice graphically. The gameplay sounds interesting, too.

@sKareKrow - Three Days Grace. I am now happy.

Ow, my eyes! Everything moves o fast, when you die over and over it almost makes me feel sick. (XD) The graphics are awesome, but I can't play for long before I start getting dizzy. (I'm kinda prone to motion-sickness, but I've never had it induced by a game before.) From what I did play though, it starts too hard, there needs to be at least a little learning curve. I liked the music though, it IS a chiptune after all.

Gameplay: 7/10 (Nice idea, but too hard to be a lot of fun.)
Graphics: 9.5/10 (Very fancy)
Sound/Music: 10/10 (I liked it)
Overall: 8.3/10 (8)

Final thoughts: I'm too dizzy for any final thoughts.

YA beaten ^_^.
There is a flash game that is harder called the hardest game ever I think =D.

I was very annoyed that if I jumped into a wall, I wouldn't be able to get to the ledge. Other times I was clearly on a platform but couldn't jump. Sometimes I didn't jump as high as normal. Also, the maximum amount of checkpoints in a level is two (including the start spawn). There was always a short easy part before the flag and a very hard part after.

Also you're learning curve is messed up, it goes medium, very hard, easy...

Nice music and sounds. addicting, but no acual replay value after you beat the game. You should string all of the levels together :p//

gameplay 7/10 (buggy, but fun)
music 10/10 (low bit =DDD)
sounds 8/10 (simple)
graphics 8/10

I give this game a 9/10, pretty satisfying to have beaten it, but I didn't get any story behind the game or character.

It's like a C64 game, and that's pretty cool. C:

The graphics were nice, and the music too. But the jumping is a little inconsistent which made it difficult randomly. I liked it, except it was a bit too much trial and error, so I was playing the same area over and over...and over.

Loved it! =D
Although I wish the levels were a little bit easier, and got harder. Still, loved the graphics and my type of music too, I have tons of XM formatted songs. <3

9/10

awesome game. reminds me of cactus. I guess the only thing is that any music can make your ears bleed after some time, but then I guess that loosing the exact same way 20 times might not be helping.

yes, make the view in front of the character. I forgot about that.

I like it. Just get rid of that hideous GM icon and load bar and your good to go.

Very nice, very stylish, great graphics and music. But damn, it was frustrating. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to play it a second time without breaking something.

It needs a slow mode, for noobs like me.

7/10.

Lots of potential to this game. I like the retro look and feel too, but it's just not really finished yet.

Wow. Nice game, reminds me of Wubly. I give it 7/10, cheesy music and no controls listed.

Despite that, very good game. Requires a lot of co-ordination and reflex.
