That’s The Point: Super Spike Dislike

By Quintin Smith on January 5th, 2011 at 9:23 pm.

Super Spike Dislike is a freeware indie game where you play a bouncing ball. But wait! There’s more. You also have to dodge spikes. You can get it here. I heard about it from Mike Rose, of the Indie Games blog.

When Mike emails me with a game it’s a bit like being a kid when your well-meaning yet comprehensively unstable father comes home. Is he going to teach me a lesson? Tell me a mysterious story? Make me laugh? Or cry? With Super Spike Dislike, he basically showed up with two tanks of gasoline and set fire to the house with all of us inside it. You should probably play it. Good night.

    “You should probably play it play it.”

    How can I say no to a recommendation like that?

    (normally I wouldn’t point out typos in the comments thread, but this one just felt so thematically appropriate!)

      RPS typos are like cardamom seeds in Indian food. You might not like them, but, well, I mean.

    • Some_Guy says:

      I’d say they were more like cloves in an apple crumble, they give it a great flavour overall but are still points of slight defect when compared to their surroundings.

    • sockeatsock says:

      Did you know that cloves can act as a mild anesthetic! I swear there’s a good analogy in there somewhere but I’ll be damned if I can find one.

      We’ve moved from making fun of Quinns using “Iron” maiden puns and have now graduated to techno puns.

    my high score is 1434, will get more later!

    just realised you get more points when you clear 2 in 1 go. yay.

    Can anyone tell me what the coloured keys are for? Somehow under irreproducible circumstances, I manage to “shoot” spikes with them. They could at least have a description in the settings.

    • snitchy says:

      I think only the Z key works. When your bar gets a green, you can shoot at a spike. 250 points for shooting a spike with a side shot somehow.

      This game just ate 2 hours of my life. Ughhh

    I seriously wonder what kind of machine and R4i Card is required for this game. I got a 2×2.0 GHz windows machine that is running games like GTA4, and it’s running this game at about 3 or 4 FPS. Which is surprising considered the graphical simplicity.
