Happy Independence Day! In the spirit of the holiday celebrations, we’ve taken a break from the usual daily blog post and instead prepared a fun little video game for you to enjoy.
Use the arrows on your keyboard to move the Wriker left and right, and hit spacebar to jump. Collect 50 falling stars to fill up the United States flag, but watch out you don't get hit by a fireball!
Play the game!
Good Luck and Happy July Fourth!
