You Have to Burn the Rope

Computer games are becoming too hard and too long these days (insert your own crap knob joke here). Well that's the opinion of Swedish game designer Kian Bashiri. As an antidote to the 600+ hours of gameplay that characterize contemporary gaming, Bashiri has designed the online game 'You Have to Burn the Rope'.

It's a platform game that you can complete in two or three minutes. The instructions are clear and succinct. 1. There's a boss at the end of this tunnel (The Grinning Colossus). 2. You can't hurt him with your weapons. 3. To kill him you have to burn the rope above. 4. Have fun. It couldn't be easier.

'You Have to Burn the Rope' makes a refreshing change from the over complex, multi level online games and comes complete with a celebratory cheesy song, 'You're a hero', when you've killed the boss. After taking over an hour to complete the game we've gone and transcribed the lyrics for you.

You're a hero

Congratulations.
You managed to kill that boss, you see...
The Grinning Colossus.
You're the hero we all wish we could be!

You made it through The Tunnel.
Then you grabbed that Fire on The Wall!
You jumped up above him.
Then you burned The Rope and save us all.
You burned The Rope and saved us all.
You burned The Rope and saved us...

Now you're a Hero.
You managed to beat the whole damn game.
We're happy you made it.
But how are you going to spend the rest of this day?
Maybe watch a video.
Maybe press refresh and start again.

Now you're a Hero.
You managed to beat the whole damn game.
We're happy you made it.
But how are you going to spend the rest of this day?
Maybe watch a video.
Maybe press refresh and start again.

Yes it's over now.
We didn't want to make a longer game.
This is it, I swear it's true.

Now you're a Hero.
You managed to beat the whole damn game.
We're happy you made it.
But how are you going to spend the rest of this day?
Maybe watch a video.
Maybe press refresh and start again.
