Seed of Destruction

If you can't see this but have a need to view cartoon sperm, check YouTube for After-School Specials.

It's a common complaint that mainstream games tend to wallow in the stagnant intellectual waters of the power fantasies of adolescent boys. Has anyone stopped to look in the sketch books of those pre-men?

Florian Himsl has.

What did he find there? He found the Seed of Destruction. He found a stick-man cowboy riding a monstrous sperm on a rampage against bystanders and soldiers with grenades and bazookas. He found attack helicopters and jets doing impossibly tight loops at speeds far too slow to realistically work without stalling the craft. He found sketchy, wanton destruction for those who come too close to the gamete's flailing tail.

Push right or left arrows to turn, down to slow your raging beast, and forward to use your limited speed boost. Health regenerates if you spend enough time away from the fray. Cause enough death and unfortunate loss of expensive military equipment and you'll not only unlock new enemies, but a set of mini-games, such as grenade-juggling.

Why You Should Check This Out: Certainly open-world ultraviolence in games like GTA 4 and ProtoFamous can appeal to a rather low-brow demographic. But that's still Uwe Boll or Judd Apatow, when it could be keyboard cat and Dumbass. This is truly a game not just for the masses, but of the masses.

But beyond the obviously ridiculous "narrative" elements, the art is truly charming, and certainly looks like it was taken directly out of my 6th grade sketch book, and then animated as if it were a music video for A-ha. It's the kind of game that reminds us all of the danger of the young male libido, and perhaps the importance of proper prophylactic measures.

Who knew riding around on a sperm with a cowboy hat could bring such emotion!?

Fun game. Love the humor.

Nice use of the word "gamete". I wasn't expecting that one.

Seconded. I feel like I shouldn't like it as much as I do, but there's a real joyful sense of freedom to it.

This game is great! But I think I broke the physics at one point by randomly pushing the buttons and not paying attention, and the little man couldn't fly straight anymore =(

That sperm should have stayed away from the Xray machine. Not your fault.

Truly, this is the best game I have ever played. It is taken exactly from my late-night doodlings in middle school. Except for the giant sperm.

Best game involving sperm I've ever played, only downside is I'll have a hard time sneaking in sessions of this at work.

Awesome.

Your sex ed classes must have been very different experiences than mine.

Quite the enjoyable little game. What enemy comes in at Level 5?

If I recall correctly, level 5 is the zeppelins with rotating lasers.

That's when I died. But the cool thing is it saves your progess! This is too rare in internet games.
