Hanging off a Bar is a game that plays with the idea of hanging over a wild river, projected underneath the player. The goal is to hang on for as long as you can.Hanging off a Bar tires one out on the hands, arms and stomach quite quickly, even without any movement involved! Luckily, from time to time, there is a raft in the form of a set of logs coming by in the river. The player can jump on these rafts to rest and recover, but not for too long, because the raft disappears in the waterfall behind, and the player has to jump back up. There is a timer in front of the player in the form of seconds that shows the player how well she/he is doing. The longer the player is able to hang on, the less frequent the rafts become. They also become shorter and shorter, so there is less time for the player to recover, and they also arrive slower and slower, hence the player can see the raft approaching, but it just takes seemingly ‘forever’.
