This is a fantastic game! There is a lot of challenge to it, but it's the perfect amount. Not to little so that it's boring, but also not to much that you want to eat the computer screen. I must say there is some luck to it because you can never tell what's coming up next which forces you to go more slowly and move strategically. Timing jump is hard but can be done. Once again Great job! Also my highscore is 320. W00T

The dark yet appealing 8 bit graphics, along with the single-button game-play, makes this game seem simple, yet, for me, that certainly was not the case. It was rather tricky, to be completely honest (although, I am not much of a gamer, so others opinions on the difficulty level may vary ). Overall, I loved the seemingly easy concept, and the retro-sounding and quick-paced music perfectly matches this game.
I'm just curious though... does this game have an end to it?

I loved it!

But it is just impossible! It's almost ridiculously difficult! I really don't see how it 's not based on "luck". I've tried tons of times to actually try and sort of calculate the jumps but I just can't seem to nail it. The worst part is i can't stop playing it!

Oh wow

Great game.
Addictive, challenging and fun.
The only real complaint here is that it's frustrating if you don't have the patience to try and do better.

This is a fantastic thing, that does exactly what it's supposed to.
Perfect? No.
But damn close.

Congratulations of remembering the secret. (It's simplicity, yo)

Best game of this type I've ever played

Too bad I've never seen a game like this that's not "not worth playing again". Like how the key you press is esc (I see what you did there) and the fast-paced music works where with the game play. But what I like most is how sensitive it is. Like it's easy to control with one key...if that makes sense.
