Nice game whalebot, I was confused how to beat it until I found an overpowered strategy. All you have to do is break the cracked pillar with 3 hits, the one next to a cracked wall, then break open the wall with 5 hits and crank that Soulja boy. Then, and thanks enyx for helping me find out about this btw, constantly splash cold water in your face.

p.s. Hero arrives at level 5 if anyone else was wondering.

ik you might literally be dead but this game is great and a cool concept

i just wish i knew how many levels there were till the hero comes in

Omg, this is hilarious! Loved it, took me a few tries to finish but breaking the first pillar to enable "splash face with cold water" really helps!

Playing the web version, after a while, the bar seemed to move quickly and pressing space did not seem to slow the movement of the bar at all. Is this intended behavior?

Yup! It gets harder to stay awake as the game progresses. You'll need to explore your environment a bit to see if anything can help you stay awake.

oh, i see
