Click and hold the red square. Move it so that you neither touch the walls nor get hit by any of the blue blocks.

If you make it to 18 seconds, you are doing brilliantly!

If you release your mouse button, the game will pause. This can be helpful if your browser decides to stop moving things for a short time - let up on the mouse for a couple of seconds, then try to resume the game by clicking and holding the button once more.

Please Note:

Performance of this game (at present) is somewhat erratic, and some browsers do better than others. In my testing, Opera failed miserably, IE11 did fairly well, Firefox 3.6.28 does reasonably well but FF31 chokes. Safari 5.1.7 also worked pretty well, as did Google Chrome when it wasn't pausing intermittently. If you're not happy with the way it works with your "favorite" browser, try another one.

If I have time and resources, I may find a way to fix this...


I did not create the original version of this game. There were notes in the source file I adapted:

  • saved from url=http://www.iol.ie/~dluby/escape.htm
  • ["originally"] saved from url=(0037)http://www.xeron.org/cosas/escapa.htm

I thought I was going to be able to take the code I'd found and paste it into a PHP file with minimal work to present it here. However, once I had started working with it, I realized the HTML was a horror show and needed to be totally rewritten. It also didn't use any CSS at all, and the JavaScript was written before InternetExploiter 6 had come out - so it was nearly obsolete.

This new version is XHTML Strict compliant, uses jQuery for cross-browser compatibility, and is styled with CSS for a more uniform presentation.

I hope you enjoy it...
