Spaceship Crash

by Wirtualnosc - 48 Hour Competition Entry

You have to escape from the blowing spaceship.
Hadn't really time to finish this properly, and I didn't want to include it as Jam entry, so... Hey, at least it works! ;)
Arrow keys - movement
Z/Shift/Space - jump
Z/Shift/Space/Enter - make selection (in main menu)
X/Escape - cancel selection (in main menu)

You can resize the window to get bigger screen.

Fun little platformer :)

Controls are a bit frustrating at times.. And some music would have definitely added to the atmosphere!

Quite interesting. The not-insta-death-spikes however don't work quite.

First try was on normal, which was just insane (developer difficulty ;). Some variation would have made the game a lot more interesting.

Grr! I really wanted to keep playing this, but was in the end just too frustrated by the difficulty of the jumps. There seems to be a slight input lag, or something, so lots of times I felt like I pressed "jump" while still standing on the ground, but fell down anyhow. :(

I played it a few times with the falling blocks but it was just way too hard-- without them (on "Very Easy") it's much more manageable. I think I made it until about the 6th room or so! Good job, just wish the jumping was a bit more forgiving (maybe code in an "air step" where you can still jump even after a frame or two off the edge of a block.) Level design seems quite solid, too!

Falling blocks a little too random and difficult to avoid by anything but sheer luck. Overall good job however.

Nice little platformer. Controls feel strange... I guess I expected to jump higher. Exactly the same but shaded tiles for background as foreground is not a very good idea. I like that there's no insta-death, but then again getting more health means less and less danger.

Played on easy. You move so slow and the blocks fall so fast that it feels just random whether you are going to get hit :/ Too frustrating to go back and try again after failing to escape the first time.

Difficulty ramped up quickly. The falling bricks (set at normal) tended to be unavoidable and punishing. Nice little platformer.

There was no warning where blocks would fall and they fell too fast to be avoidable, and this was on normal. The difficulty of the jumps was a bit high as well but nothing outrageous :)

Umph, some jumps are very frustrating... I also got bored in some rooms that I had to jump back and forth for keys. Some atmospheric music would help.

It's a fun platformer but the jumps are too exacting and I found it unplayable on easy and above; your guy moves too slow and those blocks fall too fast.

It needed music. It should've started with the screen size at least doubled, if not tripled.

I beat the whole game without realizing it was a spaceship ;). Nice entry overall.
