A great game! Very fun and polished! Its a runner, yes, but the graphics are perfect and very well-done and the difficulty is pefect. Nice job!

Nice endless runner! A bit too difficult, maybe, but then it may be me :D

Cool game! I think I died nearly a thousand times^^ Love the Grafics. Awesome job.

Good work, but really difficult!
Probably, you shouldn't randomize the level everytime the player dies... IMHO it's too hard to master a level and make any progress.

Damn hard! By best score was 78 after 200 deaths.

One of the most fun to play entries I've rated so far. The music worked great. My only complaint is that sometimes the controls didn't feel as responsive as they needed to be when doing a duck-jump or jump-duck combo.

I like the game. The graphics is interesting. The ingame "tutorial" at the beginning is well made.
The game itself is a bit too difficult. Some obstacle combinations are almost impossible.

Good game.

Talk about flash backs to the Donkey Kong days!

Cool game, but a bit too hard for me, couldn't get past 50, got addicted and died 50 times :). I loved the way his face get more and more damaged after death. Good job !

Nice game. I really like the graphics and sound.

Really sweet graphics. I think maybe a little more width would have given the player a little more chance to see whats coming. Unless you were going for the whole really difficult thing. Either way, really enjoyed it! Nice!

Nice graphics and sound, although I am just awful at these kinds of unforgiving runner games. Solid entry.

nice runner but it feels a little bit slow on my 4 year old computer.

Awesome game. Very polished and fun!

It looks amazing, but the arrangement of the obstacles, combined with single-hit death and a somewhat unresponsive jump make it not very fun. There are a lot of scenarios that are unbeatable, or require such precision that it just kind of ruins it.

Great entry! Congrats! Awesome neat visuals!

Great job... pretty difficult but fun.

Great game, might be a litle more accessible if the difficulty ramps up from the start

Lama says ...
May 2, 2014 @ 8:26pm

Great graphics, but I found it very hard, maybe asking only to jump and duck (and not for big, medium or little jump) will be better for me, but i'm terrible at this kind of games :).

Hard but fun. Really nice art. :)

Everybody loves the minecart levels in Donkey Kong Country! I think this would be more fun if, like in DKC, the challenge was to stay on the track, rather than dodging rocks.

May 4, 2014 @ 2:18pm

Super polished game, fun but sooooo hard!

davidc02 says ...
May 4, 2014 @ 2:39pm

Love the art and gameplay. It's a little hard to avoid rocks that are closer together but seems mostly doable :)

Great job.

Using your logo as an in-game thingy? Check. Leaderboards? Check. Way to go ;).

Meh, got 200 deaths instead of 200 points :D (though I did get somewhat close). Loved the instant respawning, but some of the rock formations were so damn hard it made getting a high score more luck than skill based. Graphics were good as was the audio.

Oh, and just pressing cancel on the name-alert seems to break the game :P.

Great art! Looks really great and smooth. The game itself is a little too hard for me and I believe sometimes you encounter unbeatable random obstacle scenarios. I also like how complete and polished game feels.

May 4, 2014 @ 4:01pm

nice work, feels very polished and looks great!

May 4, 2014 @ 6:03pm

So difficult! Really nice gfx

nice graphics! very hard to play in that flappy bird sort of way

Oye Beto says ...

Nice simple game.
I like the leader boards. Music is catchy.
I like the snes graphic style but maybe it could use some more color.

There's no back button in the credits.
It would be nice to play with 'W' and 'S' too.

Very nice entry. The scoreboard makes the game very viral and the aesthetic is so nice. Very good job guys!

Well, great and really pretty game!
It's fun and challenging!

But I think it lacked more sound effects... The game could me a lot more alive and dynamic...

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. 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.
