It's Saturday, the start of Labor Day Weekend, and you don't have any plans. Rather than cry into a pint of Ben & Jerry's Phish Food, why don't you give this little Flash game a go? The hours will melt away.
/ ESCAPE \ is a simple one-button score attack game, not unlike Canabalt, in which the object is to climb as high up a vertical shaft as you can. You are little black-and-purple ninja dude who bounds off the walls whenever you press the ESC button. If you don't press anything, you'll slide down the wall; if you time your button presses precisely, you'll propel yourself faster. You have to carefully avoid electrified panels while also staying ahead of a pursuing laser beam.
Once you begin, the music starts bumpin' and your blood starts pumpin'. Then you keep replaying until your plants wither and your bananas brown, and then you play some more. Addiction.
