About This Game

The super-addictive and very, very hard platform game finally arrives on Steam - it's quite possibly the world's hardest game!

With just one button, guide your orange square over spikes and jump onto blocks to get to the end of the level. Sounds easy? Any mistake results in instant death, sending you back to the beginning of the level. With an awesome soundtrack synced to the game you’ll quickly become addicted!

Try and unlock medals throughout the game, including beating the game with no flags — all synced up with Steam Achievements — and use checkpoints to learn the levels with Practice Mode, allowing you to lay checkpoints along the way.

As well as five classic Impossible Game levels, this desktop version includes an EXCLUSIVE new Level Editor. Design your own near-impossible levels and send them over the internet to challenge the world!

They don't call it the Impossible Game for nothing. Hardest platformer ever built, and I blew through Super Meat Boy and Electronic Super Joy 7/10

I hate this game.

I hate it but I still play it.

I don't know the reason why I continue playing it because all I hear is the first 30 seconds of the level soundtrack.

Is it because all I do is just jump? A puzzle jumping platformer that's so easy yet so hard and yet so.....

ARGHHHH ASDASDWADADAWF....

WHAT IS IT WITH YOU PEOPLE AND SPIKES???

...

...

Buy it, It is frustratingly good for some reason.

And I dont know why.

Undoubtedly one of the most amazing 'simple' games I've played. Soundtrack is outstanding and the game is very satisfying to play.

PLEASE READ:

This game is basically AMAZING. I beated it like 10 times some years ago on PSP and I was very happy when I heard it came to Steam.

But now I feel disappointed since this PC version is BAD. AND THAT'S THE ONLY REASON I'M THUMBING IT DOWN. THE GAME IS GOOD, BUT THE PC VERSION IS BAD.

I'm not even sure the game runs at 60fps. Sometimes items get kinda buggy and there has been many times already that I failed because of that and not proper mistakes. Moreover the game seems to get more buggy if you run it windowed.

Another issue is that the game crashes after playing for some time.

So basically it's kinda impressive how such a minimalistic game can get this broken.

I don't know guys. I really want to recommend this game because as a side-scroller it's a very interesting title... soundtrack is awesome, levels are cool, and you can practise them which is something that many games like this one don't have. But I'm not gonna recommend it unless they fix that basic stuff that actually didn't occur in PSP.
