The Dreadmill – You’re gonna die, so just get used to it…

Are you the type of player who actually enjoys it when a game mercilessly executes you over and over, just to watch you scramble to your mental feet only to get crushed once more by the mounting stress of playing a game that feels seemingly impossible?

If so, today we’ve got a game you simply won’t be able to ignore cause it’s got all the best qualities of a skilled executioner. 💀

Set before a sea of side-scrolling treadmills, your mission in this game is to run up the screen of your device without stepping on anything dangerous – something that is much easier said than done…

Check the video below for an idea of how the game is played.

Unlike some games that “sort of just turned out impossible” The Dreadmill is one of those games you can tell was meant to be hard from the way in which it was designed. Played by tapping on the screen of your device in order to move your player forward one step at a time, The Dreadmill is actually pretty easy to play in theory.

All you are “actually” required to do is tap at the correct timing so as not to land on anything deadly, and move fast enough that the crumbling stage behind you doesn’t catch up to your blocky player.

The idea is simple, but managing to actually execute what you are supposed to be doing is by no means easy and you can tell the developers realized this based on how quickly the game moves you on from one game to the next each time you game over – no 5 second “REVIVE?” prompts or annoying “Try Again?” buttons here!

If you’re a fan of mastering hard games, this is a game we highly recommend you check out. Because although the idea is dead simple, the gameplay will kill you.
