Freerunner

by ben1066 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Small freerunning game. Inspired by bit.trip runner and other games. You are running "alone"

The windows zip includes source. I plan on compiling under Linux however it has been more difficult than I had expected.

Also, due to me using Visual Studio 11 this will only run on Windows Vista and above.

- 5 seconds waiting before you can start over
- old basic game concept

It's just the old same jumping game. Try something new.

Yes, not too imaginative.

Here are some hints:

1- The timer is annoying, get rid of it.
2- You should tweak your level design, so that the game starts easier and gets progressively more difficult as time goes on.

Same old, same old.

After dying too much, I ragequitted. Not very fun, the jumping feels strange, and there probably wasn't much thinking about the theme.

You can do better!

I found this game extremely hard and the difficulty felt unfair due to large hitboxes mostly. Sometimes it was impossible to do a section because a platform was too thin followed by an obstacle immediately in front of your only landing position.

I think you need to tweak your procedural generation code to not just be purely random. Test your game more and add conditions to make it playable.

With free running games it is important to have some sort of learning curve.
