unbenannt

Seems to be about 2 years old but I’ve never seen it before and I love it! Wired says the page has been visited more than 30 million times! It’s said to be the hardest flash game in the world, if you make it further than 10 meters in the first 30 mins of practicing I’ll buy you a drink – promise! It’s so damn hard:
