Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Pretty addicting

But also pretty luck based.

It got me hooked on my computer for like, 20 minutes, which is already a lot for a game that simple.

I noticed after 10 minutes that if you kept the button pressed longer and pressed it at the good timing, you jump further and faster. But when you do this, you never know what you are going to land (or rather, "wall") on.

Making it luck based.

Making this game something that is somewhere between bad and not good.

This problem is the difference between 5/10 and 9/10.

Not bad

And for those complaining about the Esc Key, you can use the space bar and up arrow key, so quit yo bitchin

Did not like

I really HATED using the escape key. I also didnt like the way the game plays...something just seemed wrong. I dont know. But, I played it a handful of times and just couldnt like it.

I guess its better than a blank screen? lol


Rated 2 / 5 stars


I know the central gimmick here is the use of one bottom but that really limits what you can do. So it makes it a lot easier to die or screw up, making the game unnecessarily complicated.

Aha, win.
