Cretan Hubris


Story You are the master architect Daedalus. You have just finished building the Labyrinth; a massive, elaborate maze on the Isle of Crete.

Unfortunately, boasts about your accomplishment have drawn the wrath of jealous gods. They have sent a burning energy wave rippling through your creation...

Gameplay The gameplay and concept are fairly simple. You are in a procedurally-generated maze that extends infinitely to the right. The goal is to escape the maze by progressing to the right, but, of course, there is no end to the maze.

To make matters worse, a red wave of insta-killing wrath slowly marches in from the left. You try and escape the wave for as long as possible, but eventually the game will always end in a victory for the gods.

Got a nice even 777. I was surprised not only by how easy it seemed once you got the pattern down but by how quickly the wave sped up. I thought I had a much bigger lead than that!

this got super boring after i got way ahead of the energy wave. what i would probably do is never let the wave go off the left side of the screen.
