Avoid enemies or fear the lag!

Key Features

  • Bite-size play time

  • Local high-score board

  • Easy to play, hard to master

Developer's Description

Use the arrow keys to move your green character around to collect packages and avoid the enemies. Bonus points are awarded for collecting packages with your little blue buddy but hit too many enemies and he'll start to lag behind your movements, making collection and avoidance much more difficult. Add to this the growth of your main character over the time, and you have a simple game that's easy to play but very hard to master!

Lag is Team FAIL's (David Prior and Matthew Simmons) entry to the Global Game Jam 2009, made in less than 46 hours given only three cryptic constraints as a brief:

  • The game should be related to the phrase "As long as we have each other, we shall never run out of problems"
  • A game should last no longer than 5 minutes
  • The game should be related to one of the words "growth", "rushed" or "in between"

  • @Capn_Andy For a moment I saw the purple armour and thought "Huh, Saint's Row XCOM DLC?" ...I want a SR4 dubstep cannon in XCOM now.

  • @ByPriorArrange And why was I not asked to be on it...?
