Flash Game: Falling with style

Post categories:

Gids | 16:26 UK time, Thursday, 27 November 2008

Falling over, we've all done it. Probably more times than we'd care to remember. Now, thanks to the wonder of the internet, you can do it from the comfort of your computer.

This flash game pitches you as 'QWOP', your nation's sole representative at the Olympic Games. Use the keyboard to try and manoeuvre the hero's calves and thighs to compete in the race.

However, as he hasn't been very well trained, more often than not, you'll find yourself falling head first on the track. The game also comes complete with patronising messages, celebrating your courageous falls.

So for a chance to re-live painful memories I encourage you to Play QWOP
Warning: This flash game is probably not very accessible to users of assistive technologies, sorry
