Rated 5 / 5 stars

ummm ya awesome game

but the speed up thing IS working just press jump at the right time to speed up (like when you hit the wall)

Nice retro music/art,very simple gameplay which is at the same time addictive.But honestly-i think it needs more "towers" and more obstacles - jumping the same "tower" every new game just starts to get a bit boring after a while,the same counts for obstacles-other than that nice gameplay idea for using one key.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Good, but could be much better.

As previous reviews have stated, this game is a blast, but it's also absolutely pointless (I know all games are, pretty much) in the way that it has no objective other than going higher. And the randomness of the zappers can make it really tricky even at 50mt high, when you could also have a very easy ride up 150mt, which is sort of unfair.
Also, the speeding up function is broken. It's more of a burden than a benefit, you end up running into zappers you didn't even know were there...
I feel this game could be downright amazing, with a few minor tweaks.

And, protip! Use w and up arrow, w on the left wall and up on the right, it feels much more natural. :D
