I Surrender!, a new addictive platform game for Windows Phone

Ready for another addictive game? Let’s check out I Surrender! It’s a platform game developed by FlooStudio from Indonesia. The point of the game is to avoid crashing into blocks. The only action required from you is a tap on the screen to jump. Sounds simple? Head past the break to watch our gameplay video.

The graphics in I Surrender! is minimalistic. The only colors shown are shades of red, black, and white. You control a black box with a face. It moves automatically for you. Each level is split in half. When you’re on the top half, you’re moving towards the right. You continue at the bottom half where you’re moving towards the left.  

There are obstacles in different shapes that require perfect timing from you to avoid crashing. If you jump too early, you’ll crash. If you jump too late, you’ll crash. There are words in the background that either challenge you to keep going, or encourage you to give up.

While some of the levels become very difficult, we actually find it hard to surrender. This game is very addictive. When you crash, the level automatically restarts and the death counter on the upper left corner simply increases. If you don’t do anything, you’ll keep crashing and the death counter continues going up.

When you get frustrated, just press the back button. The game then asks you to confirm that you want to surrender. Click no if you want continue playing.

I Surrender! includes 15 levels,  but we haven’t got that far yet. The latest update, version 1.01, has added an online leaderboard so you can see how the best players are doing. The lower the number of deaths puts you higher on the leaderboard.

I Surrender! is a free game at the Windows Phone Store. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments!

  • Wow very good
  • Finished the game and i only died 1347 times.
  • Super wow for you
  • When I first saw the icon it reminded me of Super Meatboy from XBLA. 
  • This ! I have that game on my lappy.
  • Super Meat Boy, is that you?
  • I was about to comment the same thing when I saw this. Haha
  • Platformers aren't as fun these days: still prefer Mario, Sonic, Crash, and Spyro. Note the common occurance: you have to COLLECT things. These games are all about counting the amount of times you die before, well, you ragequit. I have never ragequitted on a platformer until the Super Meat Boy-ish games came around. Now, I prefer something laid back. Casual gamer, but will always play games like Skyrim.
  • You should try Cartridge for Windows Phone.
  • Great app name for this kind of gameplay :)
  • FlooStudio, can you please make your game available here in the Brazilian WP Store? You can use PEGI or ESRB certificates to do this and I can help.
  • This game is almost the carbon copy of a game on Kongregate, but for the life of me I can't remember what the name of that game was... EDIT: Got it! this game was ripped off from Space is Key: http://www.kongregate.com/games/chrisjeff/space-is-key

  • No. I have no storage on my 925
  • It is 6 megabytes. Delete a song.
  • That's just the xap file. After installing, it consumes around 32MB. Better delete a video if you install them in internal memory...
  • I'm a big fan of super meat boy so this should be fun, Mini Dash is also awesome btw
  • Three minutes were enough. Uninstalled before I started going crazy.. Cool idea though.
  • Definitely grabbing this one, it's one step closer to having SMB on a phone (although that'd be impossible to play with touch controls without a major revision to the levels).
  • I got to level 15 and couldn't get past the final block....I blame my screen sensitivity
  • 12 is imposibble man!
  • 592 :) broke my finger
  • Jump twice to get over that first big square
  • Take a jump before jumping over that box.... I.e. 2jumps back to back... Try it.. U will get an idea when to take first jump... And take second jump immediately after that....
