A NEW VERSION!
The new version features Medals and some optimizations for running in 30FPS. The Gameplay should be more fluid now.
It may take a day or two for the new version to be admin accepted!!

Scribbland is an innovative platformer game, where you use only one button to control the player (namely Left Mouse Button). To make the player move you just have to click and hold it, while if you want him to jump release said button. To move in mid-air, quickly release the button and then hold it again.
Your objective is to reach the exit while avoiding hazards and running into walls. You can play the game either in Easy Mode (You don't get killed when you run into wall, there are less enemies but the score is lower) or Hard Mode (Running into wall kills you, there are more enemies but the score is higher). Compete for the best score and get first on the Hiscore Board!

So, I realize some people (or majority) might not like the game thanks to the control scheme. Before you start throwing some wild accusations on me, please realize that the controls were the main quirk of the game and that was my intention from the beginning and it dates back to a couple of years ago to my older project (Happy Runner if anyone is concerned). Most people are just too used to old schemes I guess, whilst I, at least in gaming, am open to all kinds of innovation and I am sure some people will love Scribbland for this (I love the idea of one-button platformer personally).

Well, Thank You very much Newgrounds staff for putting this game on Front Page. I am really honored!

yes and no.

I like the fact that this is something new and original, but that doesn't make it good. The controls are the main focus of this game, I like the concept but they are very difficult to use and just get frustrating.

Good effort

I liked the design put into this game but like the others said it's way to hard and confusing. I was having trouble as early as the 6th level...

Smart, but not great

This was EXTREMELY frustrating, to the point where the satisfaction of beating a level was too low to negate the dissatisfaction of dying about a thousand times. It's an interesting and creative concept, I'll give you that, but overall didn't test well. Just goes to show that just because something is new doesn't mean its better. Also, explaining that one can walk through spikes (but not jump on them) would've lessened said dissatisfaction.

Nice try

This a really good example of what NOT to post here at newgrounds. The concept isn't even good because almost every platformer ever made used more then one button to do stuff. This is as stupid as it gets people. I will however give one star to the creator of this game, as he or she has at least learned the minimum skills needed to create games in flash. Hope the next creation makes more sense
