I loved it ^^!
I would remove the rolling jump (but i'm a hardcore gamer i guess) Really funny!

Nice sprite work and gameplay. Played it for a bit before I got bored by it's speed. It could be benefited with an increasing pace.

Haha neat game.
Btw you should probably turn superDev off in the version for submission?

The pace is a bit slow, but this is a nice take on the endless runner genre!

Ooo! Very interesting concept for an endless runner. Wasn't quite sure what the blue spaces did until it was too late. An up arrow on them would have helped, but then again almost unnecessary since when you fall too far you're right back up at the top. Also the double jump hover is awesome. Thumbs up!

Nice take on the theme and genre and I really like the look of it.

Great idea and execution!
Would be nice to see the current score while you are playing, now you just see it if you got new high score

Nicely animated little guy! The game is pretty simple but I have no idea what gives me points. I like the rolling jump!

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
