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.

You can't get it past the other guy, who'll knock it back to you at a slightly different angle, but instead touching the ball to get more points. It gets progressively faster, too!
Up and Down arrows to control. Note that you can't change the angle of the ball, but your opponent often will.

I've tried to get it so that the ball doesn't go within a certain range of vertical, too, so hopefully that'll work.

Music is a take on Din Da Da that I came up with earlier today on a whim.
