Well THAT escalated quickly! I got 273 at most.

Sweet game! Very addicting. Haha, I feel bad for those birds having carry the weight of my island as well as couple of blocks of lead. Loveable music and art, and all in all a very good submission to the theme!

Good job, and good luck :)

Your reverse psychology worked and I did read the .txt file and I did play fast! Oh what a mess it was :) Although, for a speedy gameplay I would like to have a bit faster character (landing was very slow, unless I missed some kind of control, which would help with that).

Overall, very very well done!

Best game of LD31 I've played so far( I've tested about 40 ). Art was awesome, music was superb if you made that, the game was fun and the overall mood was cool. It's pretty obvious that you are an LD veteran :D Looking forward to seeing your work in future LDs and maybe a full game? :)

329! On fast mode, that's gotta be a world record or something. So fun! Everything is really well polished, I loved the physics.

The idea is totally awesome! Definitely one of best games I've played so far!

Both modes are cool, but definitely the fast mode is funnier! :D
Nice use of physics, although the landing of the main character could be a little bit faster (in comparison to the objects landing). Also, nice graphics and music/sounds.

Thanks everyone for the lovely comments <3

As for the jump, it used to be weaker, I guess I didn't strengthen it enough.

Golem and bonuses are very nice. I really liked the style and rapidly increasing speed. Cool game! :)

Oh! I'm getting better. I've improved my best on fast mode: 513 :D
Btw, I hate those little green things hahaha

Haha what a fun little game! I would like to say thanks to my friends the birds, because without them I don't know, I think I would have lost my island much sooner.

Good job on a fun little arcade game.

Got 465, then accidentally fell off the island. .__.
Man I wish all LD games were like this - good but simple concept, but working really well and being that enjoyable. Very well done pirate rob!

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.
