Yay #7 in Fun and Overall! Congrats and thanks to everyone who participated and voted! I only got to rate about 66% of the games thanks to a hectic couple of weeks, but I’ll definitely still have a look at some of the ones I missed.

Update: More final version released, (includes fix to the double jumping issue mentioned in the comments), here’s the mod db page for it

Island Hopping 1.2b 01


Thanks to homework and all sorts of unexpected junk these last couple weeks I wasn’t able to get this ready until now, I still have yet to make a web interface for viewing the high scores or a tutorial, but whatever…

Here’s what I’m calling the version 1.2 beta, it’s probably fairly buggy and missing things, but I think/hope it is significantly better than the compo version.

Tutorial is listed as an option, but I never got around to it, so just ignore it for now. Also, keep in mind that this is my first attempt at online leaderboard stuff, so I might disable it at any point (or it might break) due to unforeseen events.

Released a more final version on Mod DB:


  • Improved double jumping (also double jumping is removed for hard and insane modes)
  • Online high scores
  • Local high scores
  • More options (toggle music, allow internet access, field of view, etc)
  • OGRE dialogue thing removed in favor of ingame options
  • Jumping is now mapped to all letter keys, up arrow, ctrl/alt/shift/enter/space and mouse clicking
  • All of those above keys also restart the game now (there is a 1/2 second delay to keep you from clicking right through it though)
  • Misc bugfixes
  • And probably more but I’m drawing a blank now…

Anyways, I’d appreciate any feedback, and I hope you enjoy it! I’ll probably keep working with it for a week or two, so suggestions are welcome.

    I’ve had a bug since 1.0: Sometimes it eats my double jump. Really unfortunate, because I never know when it’s going to happen and thus find myself soaring merrily through the air when I realize I will NOT make the jump because for some mysterious reason, while I had 2 green rectangles on an island, as soon as I jumped they both vanished from sight…
