Solid mechanics and level design, the graphics are good too. The sound was a too stressing for my taste, but over all a cool game!

Solid gameplay with a good difficulty ramp and neat puzzle elements. Love the art style, too!

Love graphics and game mechanics! :)
It's also a really polished game.

Great game! It might just be my keyboard glitching out but at some point the game started always moving left

Really awesome graphics, really fluid animations as well, loving that jet-pack, well done!

Love the graphics and gameplay, but the fans were more annoying than fun. The high pitch whine in the music got annoying too.

I like the mechanics of this game. Sacrificing battery power (time) for speed/jump boosts is a fun risk/reward. The face of the scientist reminds me of the face and mask designs from Hotline Miami (which I like).

i like graphics, concept, but its bugged at the third level, when i spawn the char move to left and die. So crazy! Good job anyway

level 1 was just an empty room for me. Pressing the arrow keys did nothing.

The last level is pretty frustrating because of the fact that I kept wasting my double jumps by getting stuck to the level. I did manage to complete it after quite a few retries though. Nice game, looks great!

I checked the zip files, they seem to be working fine. If you get any error message, please post it.
Thanks everybody for the nice comments :D

Got stuck once at the beggining of the jump jump jump level.
Awesome graphics and nice design. Verbal abusive mad scientist FTW

Came here because of your awesome avatar, stayed for the game!

I tried to use the source code on Mac OSX Mountain Lion and got the following errors:

To be fair, I haven't used Pyglet since last LD and I installed Mountain Lion over Lion in the interim, so it may be a problem at my end rather than yours.

It IS my end. I just tried running my ow LD26 game to no avail. >_> How embarrassing.

Best 2d pixel graphics I encountered in the whole LD so far. The jetpack flame - plus the effect you leave behind on the ground made you actually "feel" you used a powerful tool, which upgraded the already good mood into really great experience!
Took me a while to figure out that the jetpack and dash(!) could be used over a longer timespan, if held down longer...
Nice percussive beat, btw!

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 ( 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.
