Avoid deadly traps to be struck by lightning. I think the title says it all.

Being Struck by Lighting... is a very challenging game for two main reasons. First it is simply a very challenging and precise platformer, and secondly it plays in a tiny window with a tiny character only a few pixels high. Other then the difficulty it is a pretty solid offering, and if you can manage the difficulty better then I did you might get a lot of enjoyment out of it.

  1. "tiny window with a tiny character"

    Do you think the long title is compensating for this?

  2. It probably is, I have never seen any game take it to such an extreme for either of them.
