The game idea was inspired by Terry Cavanagh's "Super Hexagon". The song is Quazar's "Funky Stars".

My best time is 02:13, see if you can get more!

I MADE IT TO 12 SECONDS

I discovered this game long ago and have been addicted ever since. One time I was walking across a bridge, laptop in hand, playing the game. All of a sudden some IDIOT bumped into me and I dropped my laptop over the bridge. I was furious but could think of nothing else but to jump after it. I needed to beat my highscore. While in mid air i mistakenly hit left instead of right, ending my run. i was devastated and heartbroken. Seconds later upon impact I broke all of the limbs in my body and suffered severe brain damage. Now I cant play anymore and my life has no meaning. Overall decent game 7/10

Wishing you a speedy recovery!!!! I know you will be playing again in no time girly <3

I have not been able to eat, sleep or think since the discovery of this game. All I live for is the dopamine hit of 10 seconds of playing. This has destroyed friendships, relationships, and my GPA. I warn anyone embarking on this glorious yet foul journey. Ask yourself: What is glory?

Thanks for this insight elly!

Bro same. After 6 months of playing at least 8 hours a day I have finally beat my 30 second record. It has cost me a lot too, but days like today make it all worth it. Godspeed all #roadtooneminute

My mother always told me: whatever you are, be a good one. I've meandered through mindless jobs, pointless hobbies, and expensive schooling only to find that no endeavor suits my inescapable black sheep nature. Until I discovered your creation, Vladimir. Nothing inspires me to improve and become my best self quite like the pure survival of zigs and zags. Sooner or later, this godsend will take me into an even darker place on the outside world. But until then, I'll be here. #bettertoburnoutthanfadeaway

Quazar is now professionally known as Axwell, a Swedish house musician (that's 11 years ago).

what am i supposed to do

Had a battle with my brother. Beating the other one's record.

We started with ~30-40s were our first runs. 1min seemed impossible at that moment. I was very proud, when I managed 1:10. Then he managed 1:12 or something. Then I got to 1:13 and suddenly 1:20. I felt safe.

Then suddenly he comes up with statistics in an excel, which types of curves kill him the most and an astonishing 1:30. 1:30 felt too far, like I could never reach that. But after 5-10h of playtime stretched over one week I finally managed 1:31.

What really helped: Don't focus your eyes, keep them unfocussed, more or less in the center. Don't rush it, keep the white line near the middle, no need to keep it at the border of your screen.

This game is very addicting and has a really, really high production value!

how am i supposed to know which way to go? im going the way the path goes but it says its wrong.

Really cool.

Controls were a bit confusing for me. I think there's two reasons for it:

1. the sign "press left, up, right" is not visible enough (and there's nothing in the itch description too)

2.At first, I thought the game was meant to be played with the mouse, because: when I clicked, the game started, and wen I clicked again, it counted as "go left" and the game kept going. So I was like. "okay I'm supposed to click on the left or right side of the line and it didn't work. I had to look on the comment where you explained to get it :')


The game is looking cool, and it's pretty fun. Good work on this ! :) Super challenging too, haha ! I like that.

Any plans for a global leaderboard?

I'm thinking about it. Not sure what to do about cheaters though, because cheating in a JS game is very easy.

Yup, this got me up to 6:13. Reducing the interval would improve it:

setInterval(() => { if (interpIndex < 10) handleMove(path[pathIndex + 1] - path[pathIndex]); }, 100);

Wow this is really fun. On par with super hexagon. A few more song choices would be nice however.

Thanks! I'm always looking for other songs to add. Funky Stars sets a pretty high bar though :-)

Maybe if I understood how to actually play

Press left or right to choose which way the line should go next, from the perspective of the line. For example, when the line is pointing up, left goes left and right goes right. When the line is pointing down, right goes left and left goes right.
