Line Rider

Filed under: Uncategorized — harshdeep @ 2:28 pm

Recently I discovered the Line Rider. It’s a flash toy (not a game, as the author says, as there is nothing to achieve). It is deceptively simple – you just draw some lines with a pencil and hit play. The Line Rider then sets off on this path on his bicycle. However, he is not a good cyclist and falls off his bike at the slightest unnatural bump in the terrain.

Lots of people have taken the Line Rider’s driving skills as a challenge, painstakingly creating more and more complex terrains that he can drive on. After killing him a few dozen times in as many different ways, I can imagine how hard it is.

Here is one example:

A search on Youtube shows a lot of other results.

Line Rider has all ready been downloaded over a million times. It is amazing how one person can capture the imagination of so many people with a simple idea.

  2. That was impressive! I wonder how long it took to do that! That was probably the best of all time line flyer video. It had so much detail, and was really great.
