Really great game! I have played this a bunch so far and love how fun and simple it is with a surprising amount of strange and funny gameplay that happens depending on sword distribution and how you have "arranged" the man.

Funny little game. Not sure how it fits the theme though...
My highscore is 17.

*stab in the foot"
"MY EYE!"

This game is great :D
I would love to have it on my iPod in the morning to waste some time in the train on my way to work :)

highscore: 20

@Marach: you're escaping the swords ;) But true, it might be streaching the theme a little.

I also like the title, very clever.

I can imagine this being an escapist's nightmare, a box with neverending swords. Very original I must say.

Really liked this one. Simple but good. I like the vintage feel of the artwork and friendly sound. Good work.

One of the best entry so far. Agree with the others, this should definitly do well on a portable device !

Just awesome. Simple and efficient idea! Nice job!

I guess this could have 5 stars for innovation. But, you cant really escape, can you? P.S. mochi highscores do no fit in stage.

Simple, fun, functional! Cool stuff.

Very nice idea. There is no way to tell how far the sword will go though. The body also feels a bit "heavy". I would prefer a health meter and blood stains than immediate death from a prickle to the hand.

Aug 25, 2011 @ 8:47pm

This idea is so far the most unique I have seen.

Nice work!

Cool idea. Pure genius!. Although you don't actually escape as in "freeing yourself from the box" but... you are certainly escaping imminent death. It's rather hard but it's fun!

Very original and funny!

Awesome game, a simple, unique and fun idea! And like other people have said, it would be perfect for a smartphone.

i enjoyed placing him in very compromising positions. im not very good at it but i enjoyed this nonetheless.

Super simple and super awesome! My only complaints are that this doesn't fit the theme very well and the high scores list is kind of confusing ("month" only has one entry, but "day" has several...). Great job!

Theme sound effects were a little laggy but otherwise fine. Trying to survive the swords was pretty cool. Nice job.
