The game

The program, or an online game, or an application-under-test, is called Escapa (The link points to Wikipedia article about it).
The goal of the game is to move the red block around without getting hit by the blue blocks or touching the black walls – as long as you can. Moving speed of blue blocks gradually increases.
Once the game ends, a pop-up displays game time in seconds.

The challenge

This game has a few bugs, and there is also a number of cheats. How many of them can you find?

I also call for sub-challenges:

The shortest game time ever

The longest game time ever

Let the screenshot of a pop-up be a proof.

The rules

You can do anything but:

  • changing the original source code of the game
  • faking the pop-up in any way
