The Case of Scary Shadows

We tend to make fun of people who get scared easily for being "frightened of their own shadows", but what if your shadow came to life and wouldn't stop chasing you so it could destroy you with a touch? What then, smart guy?! It'd certainly make gathering food more difficult, as the bear in Ticklebot's frantic arcade game The Case of Scary Shadows finds out, but that doesn't mean they're about to give up! Move with [WASD] or the [arrow] keys and nab the food that appears onscreen for as long as possible. Keep in mind that the edges of the game "wrap", so passing through the right side will make you pop out the left, and vice-versa. When your shadow appears shortly after you begin, it quickly follows behind you, mimicking your every move, and slowing down may mean it catches you... an instant game over! It may be easy to stay one step ahead of yourself, but when other dangers are added as well, this is going to need to be one fleet-footed bear! It's a simple game, but a fast-paced one, and its bouncy soundtrack and lovely visuals make it a fun high-score based experience.
