Infuriating flip screen platform game played with only two keys: change direction and jump.
A malfunctioning Dave wakes up from a dream to find he is trapped in a world where he is in perpetual motion. He needs to find his way out of the 8 levels or else his infuriation will cause his head to explode.
Guide Dave about trying to find the exit.

Guide Dave through the level searching for the exit. Each of the blocks making up the level have a different effect on Dave:

With the exception of the pause blocks Dave is in perpetual motion, you cannot stop Dave's movement fully.
You are timed during the level, the quicker you complete the level, the more points you receive and the better your reward. The Grim reaper floats around the level chasing you trying to increase your timer. Try to stay out of his way!
