Decided to enter, made this game which maaayyy or may not have been inspired by BIT.TRIP RUNNER.

READ FIRST BEFORE PLAYING:

There's one thing you gotta know about this game: It's hard. There are only 7 levels, but don't let that fool you. The gameplay requires consistent timing, a lot of button mashing and fast reaction times. Whenever you die, you're sent right back to the beginning of the game (the exception being the last level). It's challenging, but still incredibly fun if you're into that type of thing. Average gameplay time is around thirty minutes to an hour.

CONTROLS:
- SPACE: JUMP
- SHIFT: HIGH JUMP

REQUIRES JAVA 1.7 OR HIGHER

--------------

My development goals and limitations:

- Game had to make the player go 'Awwwww ^__^'
- Game had to make the player go 'Awwwww :('
- Game had to make the player want to rage quit
- Game had to use only 4 colors (no more, no less!)
- Game had to use only 2 keyboard keys
- Game had to use only 1 mechanic

It was a lot, but still incredibly fun to do.

Have fun! If you find any bugs, please do not hesitate to tell me about them in the comments.

Awesome, totaly makes me want to rage quit, but every time i
fire up the game again to try and win !

i like the gameboy style graphics, verry well drawn.

also thanks for making this in java, since this means it's
easy for me to play it without any fuss (I say this because im using Linux).

This game is on par with VVVVVV, on par with Electronic Super Joy, and on par with its inspiration BIT TRIP RUNNER. Definitely worth a play, and worthy of far more attention. (I may be a little biased, but I finished the game in just over an hour, and I enjoyed every second)

SO MUCH RAGE. Love the graphics though! I included it in part 3 of my MiniLD #56 compilation video series, if you want to check it out :) http://youtu.be/QPOI-iwGJ3I

Nice and polished! I kind of get headaches from this kind of games, it would have been interesting to see how the 4 color limitation could be used to maybe make the gameplay easier (or less stressing).
