It's like Canabalt with competitors! Very addicting! Nice graphics and sound. The link to the islands theme is a tad far fetched for my taste, tho, but that's just me ^_^

Perrin says ...

Awesome game, had a lot of fun. Very silly. ^_^

So do the red ones bump me if I touch them while they're in the air, but not while they're on the ground? It seems that if one jumps just as I'm about to pass it, it'll knock me down, which is annoying because they don't broadcast their intention to jump so it's just random to me.

Everything else is awesome!

I LOOOOVE the main menu music.. like insanely!
Could you possibly post a link to it? I want to add it to my music database of amazing awesome. :P
As for the game, it was very fun. I enjoyed it a lot. it's so frustrating when you get knocked over by 1, and then it's impossible (for me) to get past the increasingly huge clusterf*ck of rival skaters. fun game though.

Tenoch says ...

Sweet! Love the universe, background, graphics, humor, music. Gameplay is a tad annoying sometimes (big leaps of faith that end, well, badly) but otherwise quite smooth and enjoyable.
Yay!

Riley Adams says ...

Fun! I'm not seeing much in the way of islands, but then again "islands" doesn't *have* to mean the tropical variety... overall very nice.

Entar says ...

Great music, fun game. Interesting interpretation of the theme.

Hempuli says ...

Interesting! There seems to be something slightly fishy with the collisions between the player and the enemies, but otherwise this was very enjoyable!

Terry says ...

That title screen is amazing :D

SonnyBone says ...

THIS WAS PRETTY DANG RAD.

I agree with the greatness of the music and the 'world'. I really want this to be expanded upon.

tembac says ...

Great Graphics.

It reminds me of rollerball. I want it to go faster!!!

allen says ...

Pretty fun, the islands bit seems pretty forced though.

eli says ...

Just love the backgrounds and music!! =)
It's a shame the gameplay doesn't hold the same attraction for me. Probably because of the issues already mentioned.

Selkie says ...

Very very good game, but I don't see it fitting "Islands" theme fine.

fydo says ...

I am giving you five whole stars for FUN! FUN FUNF UFNFUN FUFNUFNFUNFN!!111

pekuja says ...

Fun game. It's really hard to avoid the blockers when jumping though. Most of the time I would die from hitting them between platforms and falling down.
While I agree that the music is good, I'm going to leave that as N/A because I think using GarageBand loops for Ludum Dare is a bit suspect. I've pretty much heard this exact same music before!

rik says ...

I really like this game - quite similar to my entry. I'm not sure about the weird photo title pic or the GarageBand loops but the gameplay's pretty cool - I really like the opponents, feels much less solitary compared to my game.

PsySal says ...

Aha, awesome. Excellent music and sound effects, great concept.

dock says ...

It's nice to see an auto-scroll game where you're not auto-running, and it's great to see some other characters in the mix, really helps drive you forwards! :)

Endurion says ...

Rock solid game, captivating, fitting music, good atmosphere. Almost perfect!

Diet Chugg says ...

Nice done on the music. I use the same tool to make music because I can recognize some of those loops. :) Gameplay was pretty smooth. Good job.

Tom 7 says ...

Pretty good. Plays smooth, nice graphics and music. I could never quite figure out why sometimes the skaters punched me and sometimes not. Sort of like real life. Didn't really seem to have anything to do with islands.

Hi-score 78##? (Something is wrong with the score display at the end?)

Jonny D says ...

Two things. I wanted to skate much faster and I want to ride a rocket!

philomory says ...

Nice graphics and sound. Gameplay was pretty good, but could have used a little something more to spice it up. Not sure what, though.

ondrew says ...

The music is just amazing. Makes the game twice as fun.

Codexus says ...

Nice retro graphics style. I don't see the theme in your game.
