    While obviously not meant for a broad, easily discouraged audience, 1001 Spikes' elegantly devious level design and endless string of "oh, so close!" deaths help it succeed at what it sets out to do: deliver a nightmarish degree of challenge while remaining just fun and interesting enough to keep beleaguered players forging ahead.

    Its varied level design, gratifying gameplay, vast amount of content, and palpable tension make 1001 Spikes a must-play for people seeking a challenge.

    Like many of the games in the same league, it’s hard to recommend 1001 Spikes to those who aren’t patient enough to learn its deadly and intricate ways, or to those who are prone to smashing their controller through their TV screen in frustration. But to those who live off buzz words like “rage-inducing” and “old-school hard”, look no further.

    1001 Spikes is a paean to clever level design in a world full of games with procedural generation. The controls are so simple and so tight, and because of that, the game is all about how the levels work, what the developer is trying to do with you/to you. After a medium-difficulty tutorial world, prepare to be thrown in the deep end, with endgame Super Meat Boy-caliber levels popping up by World 3. With plenty of unlockable characters that do different stuff, if you like the game, you'll play it a ton. There's drop-in local co-op and versus modes, too, and man are they fun at a nerd party alongside Nidhogg and Towerfall. If you looked at this page because you were the least bit interested, get it! It's worth it. Expand

    Challenging game. this game WILL make you rage a lot
    best way to describe it would be a mix of super meatboy and 'I wanna be the Guy'
    and it
    works ... GREAT
    there are a lot of characters, tons of replay value, unlockable skins.
    You won't beat this game in one session and you'll probably pull your hair out on some levels.
    But the satisfaction you get after you beat the levels is like the best feeling in the world :D

    Certainly recommend this one, insanely good!!
