    Spikes are dangerous and often deadly obstacles that can line the floor, walls, or ceiling of any given room or passageway. They are an extremely common form of environmental hazard, particularly in side-scrolling games.

    Short summary describing this thing.

    Spikes are perhaps the quintessential hazard in video games, particularly those in which the player can jump. In contrast to pits, which can be mistaken for openings to lower areas, spikes clearly delineate an area of the world that (probably) should not be explored and contains only death. This expectation can also be subverted by hiding collectibles or secret areas near spikes.
