Don't you just love extremely difficult and frustrating games? Ok...usually not, but I believe I had this conversation before with Spikes Tend to Kill You 2. For some games that is just their motif, short and easy gameplay with a ridiculous difficulty curve. Space is Key 2 is no different and I love it!
You play Space is Key 2 just like the title suggests. One button...Space! The goal then is to jump over obstacles, you do not move yourself so all you have to focus on is pressing space at the right time to jump over various obstacles. Sounds simple right? Trust me...it is not. The obstacles are placed in the hardest spots available and you will die...a lot. That much is guarantied.
But like in other "hardcore" games of this sort (really should find a better term than that...) you don't mind dying so often. The turn around is quick and that leads to an extremely high replay value. Also the humor in the game (just like in Spikes Tend to Kill You 2) lets you sort of laugh at yourself while you just died 50 times on that one jump. Graphically, it is very minimalism. Colored squares are pretty much all that this game is, however it works for this game and it's much better than trying to go all out fancy with human characters or something and failing like so many second rate flash games do. Overall, Space is Key 2 is an extremely hard game but that's what makes it fun! And you'll be playing this game for hours, trust me, I'm the flash game reviewer here.
