Spout - abstract pixel shooter
Spout is a small cave-flying arcade game in black and white. The
player has to navigate a spaceship upwards through a series of caves,
avoiding the walls and the window borders, and getting through the
checkpoints before the limited time runs out.
The engine exhaust’s plume can (and must) be used as a flamethrower for
eroding the cave walls in order to make passages for the ship to go
At the title screen, hit spacebar to begin playing. Your goal is to get
as high as you possibly can, without crashing or your time running out.
Spout is played with the keyboard:
- left and right arrow keys: turn the ship around
- z, x, spacebar, or enter key: thrust/fire
- escape key: pause
- shift-escape: exit
- Keep going up, up, up!
- Get through the next barrier before time runs out!
- Use the exhaust plume to make way!
