Nice game, but the controls are a bit lagged?
Congrats! :)

@everblind Which browser/OS?

Well done! There is a very nice dose of challenge, but I had to give up after failing like 20 times at the yellow level with lots of spikes.
I may have been motivated to continue if there was an interesting story, but I am probably too clumsy to get through the level even if I kept going..
The jumps remind me a lot of jetpack games, and it might be nice if the robot had jetpacks on. The precision and judging was just too difficult for me.

@theholychicken That was the last level!

Fun game, I enjoyed it.
Something is a little frustrating with the controls, though. Maybe deceleration is too slow? Almost felt laggy.

Awesome game. Graphics, sounds and music are quite impresive. The difficulty is addictive. Works great in chrome (ubuntu). Nice work.

I thought the controls were smooth and the strongest part of the game. Fucking hell you went all-out with the difficulty on the last level, I think I died a hundred times and I spilled at least as many expletives.

Cute little twitch platformer. It was kind of thrilling even. I thought the challenge level was just right. I also died about 50 times on the last level.

A very good game with a nice clean graphical style. The music is a bit repetitive, and I was pleased to see a mute button. The game works well, but suffers from performance issues which made it rather more difficult than it should have been. The physics feel a little weird to me (no horizontal deceleration from air friction, too fast horizontal acceleration when in the air), and I fell out of the world a couple of times.

Quite fun game, but I personally didn't like 'hold space to jump loger'. The character might fly for some time near the ceiling.

That was a lot of fun! The core mechanic worked well, and the levels were just the right length. Got hooked on it, and spent a good five minutes screaming at the last level. :D

I have two suggestions for improvements. The death animation is a bit on the long side for a game where you die a lot. In a similar vein, I wanted a suicide button for when you know it's hopeless.

On a personal level, it was fun to see how we handled the same concept so differently. I enjoyed the fast gameplay in yours a lot! Great job! :D

Not bad, difficulty spikes pretty hard

Very fluid! Jumping was a little wooden though

Aug 28, 2013 @ 4:48pm

Lovely little game. I liked the sharp graphic style.

Thanks for level restart! Loved the graphics and the zooming on enter-exit. Boy can you jump far!

Nice game! Although the controls felt really floaty.

Um, for some reason, every time I tried to play the game the robot just fell through the floor.

Very fast platformer! Didn't know that html5 could make that with vector graphics :) I enjoyed mastering the controls, and the in-game instructions.

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 ( 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.
