A downloadable game for Windows and Mac OS X

Damocles the Robot is a fast paced one button arcade game where you must try and defuse an endless procession of bombs.

You play as Damocles the Robot that is stuck forever rotating around bombs that appear in front of it. You must rotate around and stop at each upcoming coloured connection to cut it. Cut all three connections on the bomb and it will be defused. You are safe...until the next, more fiendish, bomb appears.


  • Spacebar hold to move around the bomb and release to slow down and attempt a defusal where you stop

Damocles is the third Chalk In Jam, a prototype built during the 20th week of 2016 by Chalk In Rain.

This is quite good! At first I thought there was no chance but then I did enjoy it until I really didn't have one more :)
