The changing of positions gave me motion sickness due to the sudden 'jump' :/

I can see you got inspiration from Mirror's Edge. Functional enough for a runner, I suppose.

Pretty fun game, the upbeat music is fitting. Overall good mood and great fun. Timing's a bit of an issue, but that's probably my lack of skills :-)

Great game! The aesthetic reminds of Mirror's Edge.

Just like Mirror's Edge, except if it were made in two days! Good work though

Awesome job! Looks slick, and very fast paced

Nice Runner, I found the controls easier to grasp as I picked up speed. Well done, great game!

This is really what Mirrors Edge if it was made in two days from scratch! Upbeat, fast, pure awesome.
The sudden jumps do can give motion sickness though!

I like these Mirror's Edge like games. Was funny. But the sudden "jump" as already mentioned is a bit to rough.

The game is simple and very fun. I found the tutorial a little confused. This tutorial could be during the game.

it's fun to play. smoothing the camera might be needed though to avoid nausea and confusion.

Thank you everyone very much for the feedback! I unfortunately did run out of time before I could smooth out the jump transition.

Nice game. The side animations could have been a little smoother but the game was simple and fun. Good work.

Hi there. Nice presentation and lighting. Found the camera and blockages presentation a bit tough, would be nice to clearly see where you have to start/stop holding key. As previous poster says, the camera moves are not pleasant. Nice manic sounds. Good job!

pretty solid game, wasn't working too well on the web build though (not recognizing input) but the mac build was fine. a little hard to work out the timing. particularly the jump

I like this game and it's dodge mechanics! Had much fun aiming for the highscore, but did not manage to get farther than 66 blocks ^^
I would recommend that you make the movements smoother, as they are very "jumpy" atm. And in addition to that, I think the game would play even nicer if the "movement speed" stayed the same throughout and did not increase with the running speed.

It's like a parkour rollercoaster. Insane.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
