High Jumper

by GVmakesGames - 48 Hour Compo Entry

The game was made in about 12 Hours. It's not a masterpiece, but I enjoy playing with it.

How much blocks do you jump? I did jump 11 Blocks high, even 12, but I didn't save the screenshot :P

17 - Tegu
14 - Fanvadar

Thanks! The music is generated with cgMusic, and converted in that 8 bit style with GXscc ;)

Interesting and short game. The mouse sensitivity was too low for the kind of game it was, you should be able to look around you faster.

Looks and sound are nice, but the controls, urghh...
More than once I fell off although I was pressing Space to jump.

Nice minimalistic graphics, music and simple but working concept. Missing some easing (= acceleration and inertia) in movements though.

Yeah, I was planning to add them, but I had problems, and was too late. So I have only this :C

Meeeh... Graphics is a little glitchy, and jumping should be possible while holding down W key. It is very hard for me this way, got to 5th or so plane.

Highly addictive game! Spent enormous amount of time trying to get higher and higher. At first the controls and plane collisions felt very weird and off, but after a while I got used to them and slowly learned how to get to plane 12 pretty much every time.

Then I wondered how it's even possible to get any further until I realized a nice little glitch with which I could get slightly higher. It needs some practicing and still requires perfect jumping and some luck with map generating. I just got sucked in to try to trickjump better and better.

The process reminded me a bit of learning how to strafejump etc in Quake and Warsow. It just is so addictive and learning feels so rewarding (well, maybe not so much in this game as in Warsow but still).

Anyhow, I finally managed to reach level 16 and ahh it feels good. Here's a shot: Now I'm waiting for people to break that. :)

Tegu, is that the glitch when holding space and "touching" a platform next to the one you're on? It makes you jump again without having finished the previous jump, and it's like making two jumps in one ;) but yeah, you did 16? well done ;)

GVmakesGames says ...
Sep 3, 2013 @ 2:38pm

Oh and I tweeted about it, that's a record ;)

Srry dude couldn't give you a high score but pretty nice game for the 48 entry :D

Can't play windows games. :-(

Tegu says ...
Sep 4, 2013 @ 10:07am

GVmakesGames: Yeah, exactly that glitch. And if the map is suitable, it's also possible to make more than a double jump. Also: (Tried to record with Fraps but the game kept crashing as soon as I started recording.)

I think it's some problem with how Game Maker draws in 3D. Using a normal projection the game can be recorded, but using an extended projection to change the fov (as I've done for this game) appears to crash it. And now, I'll add a classific :D

Oh man, my highest is only 10... no need to be proud of that, I assume.
Music is nice, but detuned too much for my taste and a bit too many rhythm issues.
As simple as they might seem, I like your neon platforms :P
Btw - is the player supposed to move faster diagonally? Maybe I only imagined it, but I could swear I could jump over a further distance that way ^_^
If you ever update/continue this.... maybe give a short overview of the map beforehand, rather than starting the game in the splitsecond you reach for the restart button ;)

Nice little game I love it :)

Cool game with cool mechanics, graphics and sounds! The only "problem" is that the control are a bit hard and made me rage quit :P

GVmakesGames says ...
Sep 12, 2013 @ 12:18pm

I know, the controls are the "bad" of this game :P I'll try to make a fixed version, if I have enough free time, but I can't upload it to the compo: rules and sheez.

As someone who always play with invert mouse I got quite confused playing this. :D

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.
