You Have 8 Bricks
You Have 8 Bricks. That's it. That's all. Just eight. And with these eight bricks, at least one must make the daring climb up and out to the surface and to the world that awaits you there. Rarykos's avoidance platform game is a short, high difficulty, tower climber controlled by either the [arrow] keys or [WASD]. In the beginning, you must mash any key to break lose and start your climb by jumping up. Pressing the up [arrow] or [W] in the air lets you perform a double jump which helps as you climb the floating platforms. There are three ways for you to die, with blue lasers that shoot up from the bottom (they don't hurt until fully charged), and white squares shot straight up (a pink glow will show you where they are coming from), and of course rising lava wanting to claim all four of your corners. It doesn't seem too hard and the climb is short, but the path is narrow. It's easy to get knocked back to your doom. One hit kills and you'll soon find eight lives may not be enough.
Okay, so there is a reset button, and after eight deaths you can just hit that and start again. The idea of the reset button almost makes the title seem arbitrary, but you're probably going to need more than eight to get to the end. Well, most players. I know there are some who have skills enough that this game won't be much of a challenge, but the ending is well worth it, even if the game doesn't take you very long. There are a lot of cryptic things going on, such as flashes of strange images, and warnings left on the wall. It's kind of a mystery as to what is going on, and one that isn't clear until you escape. As short as it is, You Have 8 Bricks makes up for it with great music and a grand story you don't usually see in climbers. So take a rage break, and try to see if you can scale this using the power of geometric shapes.
