Welcome to the 23rd century. On the utopian planet of Mars, one man makes his escape - that man is you.
You must run, dodge, jump and climb to grab all the crystals you can as you flee like a thief in the night!

Random sectors are thrown at you as you prove your reputation as the ultimate Crystal Collector - and man oh man do you make those MC Hammer pants look good.

WASD or Arrow keys to run and jump. Space as an extra jump key because you guys deserve it.

Move to start your run, jump to restart once you've fallen to your grisly doom.

WARNING - This game is hard. You have to play it to get better. You guys are supposed to be the best gamers around, though, so I believe in you Newgrounds!



Rated 3 / 5 stars

They werent kidding about the collision detection and faulty jumping, I usually try to finish every game before I do a review but the bugs make me want to punch a hole in my monitor, I think I'll refrain and maybe try again when I want to kill a good mood.

Wasted my time on a game with poor control all the way to sector 15 to find out that medal doesn't work.

The game is nice and all, but its also pretty damn frustating.

The 2 things that pisses me off the most are:
1. most of the time, when i jump to one of those small platforms, right in the middle, i magically fall down and die.
2. sometimes (uncommonly), the guy just decides to run off a platform, even when im not pressing the button.

Those 2 pretty much made the game night impossible for me.

Other than that, good game, concept and music. 5/10.

medal for 3000 crystals actually takes 5000. glitchy jumping: falling from great height while holding jump sometimes causes to do very short hop, running off ledge while jumping sometimes causes shorter hop.

made me rage quite a bit, especially the medal because i suicide after i hit 3000.

In a time where you can't play a game without getting achievements thrown at you, finally there's a game where I'll need to grit my teeth and buckle down in order to make some progress. I may not be a 'hardcore' game player (I don't mind achievements thrown at me), the idea of memorizing the sections and skillfully making my way through is very enticing.

Everything in the game is part of the puzzle that makes it work. Having one life means you need to learn the routes; the sound gives it a frantic feel; the moving wall chasing you gives a rush and the stylish pixel graphics remind me of a more simpler time in gaming.

It's not without it's imperfections, though. Although it strongly emulates earlier video games, I shouldn't feel as blocky as I did in those. When jumping and especially climbing on ladders, I sometimes feel I could end up dying through no fault of my own. Apart from that though, it's a really good game.
