Keep breathing and play Stay Alive on iOS and Android

Some days you fight to not be bored, some days you fight your boss, and some days you jump in a spaceship, blast off into deep space and you fight to Stay Alive -- get it? That's the name of this game that Redditor Vole85 spent more than 100 hours creating for iOS and Android markets, and we think every minute of dedication shows.

Stay Alive is a fast-paced spaceship side-scroller that would be fairly standard if it didn't have such a rockin' soundtrack and charming bonuses. It's available now for free on Android and for $0.99 on the App Store. Vole85 -- of Drummer Games -- is taking suggestions now for improvements or additions to Stay Alive, and we're sure he'd like to hear your feedback.

Moral of the story: You can't win the lottery if you don't buy a ticket; you can't earn Karma if you don't post on Reddit; you can't teach a grizzly bear to knit a sweater. You just can't.
