Great game, I'm pretty sure my keyboard won't last as long anymore. ;)

My only complaints were that the fireballs were a little hard to see in the desert, and I would have preferred if the controls were spread out to make it easier to use two hands. I especially liked how all four abilities were consistently called for; there wasn't a useless ability and it was fun making quick decisions on which one to use.

Great looking game and I loved the way you worked in the theme, but kept the momentum going. It was really good fun to play.

What can I say. You are the kung-fu master of game design and development.
Great entry!

So much fun! Well done :)

Fun game. Blocking the fireballs always tripped me up. Once it got to 4 buttons it became hard for me to keep up. Nice job.

haha, very great game
loved it!

didn't expect anything but a great game from you :)

Stupid fireballs! Cool running game, liked the different abilities. All games are better with sliding

I can't believe the fact you told me for years that you couldn't draw anything... The art on this one is really cool :)

However, I didn't like the gameplay: the violent "stops" each time you fight something doesn't work well.

This was a blast - when it started I thought "Oh great, another one button thingo" - but the difficulty and extra powers ramped up so nicely - made it really addictive. The graphics rock too. Reminded my of Wonder Boy in MonsterLand. The audio rocked too.

This is a good game.

Aug 31, 2013 @ 5:25pm

Again a very nice game from you :)

Very very fun! Thank you so much for making this!!!

Usually auto-runners bore me, but this one was really good. I like all the different abilities the player gets.

Great game, I enjoyed playing it. I like the adapted runner concept, the nice graphics, animations and the audio very much.

Really action packed for a short entry. This was really awesome and i had lots of fun.

Good game, awkward controls! It's really hard to control player with 4 adjacent keys.
Anyway I've a lot of fun with the game, and I think I'll go back to complete it.

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.
