The Floor Is Lava

by Sloth Jesus - Jam Entry

Avoid the lava and hit switches. I made this game with my own blood sweat and tears.

controls are arrow keys

I wish i wouldve been able to make sound of that quality for my game. Superb job in that aspect.

The gameplay is very solid as well, jumping felt a bit wrong at first, but as the levels got narrower and walljumping more important it was fine.

Good job.

Nice job! Pretty fun, and I liked how the levels incremented in difficulty nice and smooth, so sucky players like me could enjoy it more. :)

Sweet, it becomes really stressful after a while. Music, graphics and gameplay are really great.

Controls are very good. Music is great.
The waving lava makes it a bit difficult to know when we might hit it or not, feels a bit randomy.

Simple but fun! the game was otherwise very well done, but the controls are bit difficult because of the weird jumping physics. Also the tiles are bit hard to see from the background, you should make their colors more different.

First thing I noticed were the amazingly well done controls. Great game, beautiful minimalistic art. This one's a winner.

Unexpectedly cool! Simple and fun! I get high!

Fun game, cool music and nice controls, but sometimes jumping through a narrow hole in ceiling was hell. Reducing inertia while the player is touching ground won't hurt IMO.

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.
