Very on theme. Fun little game.

I like the two color square. I wish everything else had been like that. I think it would have looked a lot more interesting. music sounds good, fits the game really well. It would be cool if how long i pressed jump determined how high i jumped.

Well it's surely not the most innovative game out there, although I must admit I've spent quite some time playing, and enjoyed it, it's fun.

Very cute graphics, and surprisingly fun game play. Well done!

Good minimal runner/jumper game.

492 after four runs! The drifting camera is a nice touch, though once I hit 400 I started going off the left of the screen until I wasn't able to jump.

Also when you're too far to the right the gap placement can seem a bit unfair.

But besides those issues it's got a good feel to it and definitely feels like every death is avoidable and your fault.

Funny little game.

Interesting gameplay choice to make jumping faster horizonally than walking, it promotes jumping more if you are behind (which is bad because you lose when you get behind), but jumping less when you are too much ahead (which is bad due to not seeing what is coming). Subtle design or just a side-effect? ;)

It is an intentional design choice.

Fits nice within the theme, good use of basic shapes to create the entire experience. Had some trouble to get used with the fact that the character runs slightly slower than the scenery, and that I needed to keep jumping to keep up. Other than that, a solid entry.

Nifty audio. Would be nice to have some control over the character, as well as encounter obstacles and all as the game progresses. Solid effort.

A runner with a twist, pretty cool to play on a phone!
I got to 803 and fell miserably.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
