Kickrunner is a Soccer Jump`n Run game.
The aim is to gain as many points as you can until you lose. Points can be collected by avoiding enemies(10 Points) and shooting goals(50 Points). You can additional points as the time passes. The game is over when the player collides with an enemy or if he shoots a fielder. Highscores will be updated as soon as the record is broken.The speed of the game will increase during the progress of time, which also increases the difficulty of the game.

Space = Kick Ball
ArrowUp = Jump

Hallo esaygin,

Ich habe mir dein Spiel runtergeladen und bin positiv überrascht. Es ist einfach zu Spielen und die Musik ist auch gut hörbar. Ich würde mir wünschen das es auch neue Versionen mit einer Highscore Tabelle oder Ähnlichem geben sollte.

Having trouble running the game. Main menu just has 3 buttons without text, and they all crash the game when clicked

However, well done.

@Toki : The character shall be the german Thomas Müller, but we want to add texture packs, so one of it could be sth like that^^

The jumping felt weird. The arc was unusual and it didn't have sound, so it I couldn't get a feel for it. Plus the collision detection with the fielders felt off.

The context didn't really make sense to me either. Is the player leaping over the heads of his opponents while still controlling the ball? If not, how does he get it to shot at the goal? Why are there so many goals and why do they disappear? I don't have a problem with the mechanics, but hey seem very incongruous with idea of soccer.

Thanks for your feedback Scott!

I didnt implemented soundeffects (it has a soundtrack which can enabled on startmenu) because the programm is primarily for employees who want be detected during "working".

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. 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.
