"Computer games are getting so hard these days..."

You Have to Burn the Rope is a simple game with a simple premise, resumed by the three instructions contained in the game's intro:
  1. There's a boss (the Grinning Colossus) at the end of the tunnel
  2. You can't hurt him with your weapons
  3. To kill him you have to burn the rope above
The gameplay consists in using the arrow keys to move and jump and the shift key to throw axes. There is only one life and no continues.
