Now with Medals and a Scoreboard!

KEYS:

* Press Z to jump!
* Press K for Easy Mode! (Scoreboard disabled)
* Press M to toggle Mute!

I set out to make a short, slightly challenging, little low-fi platformer. It's very short (15 minutes at most), not all that challenging, and certainly low-fi.

If you do get stuck, you can press the K key on your keyboard to switch on Easy Mode. Once Easy Mode is turned on, it can't be turned off again.

INFO:

This is my first game. It's not all that great and has plenty of issues, which is what I expected. I spent a total of two weeks on it, a few hours a day. Most of that time was trying to learn how to use StencylWorks. Since I'm not a programmer by any stretch of the imagination, StencylWorks was my best bet for getting anything done.

Admittedly, 90% of what I love about Just Another Day is the music, provided by Peter Gresser.

IMPORTANT:

* If you find your framerate very slow, try clicking the 'pop-out' link above the game, to move it to its own window.

* If you still can't hit Z after clicking away the ad, just click the flash again.

FRONT PAGE:

Holy cow (or is that bull), front page! Thank you all for the positive reviews!

UPDATES:

11-02-12: Medals and a Scoreboard? I've sold out... At least I didn't make the game easier. Changed the graphic for the "helper" blocks, because some people were offended. Compressed the music to make the filesize smaller, please listen to the original quality on Peter Gresser's page.
30-01-12: Made the fadein/out on death a little faster, and added a few more helper blocks.

By far, one of the best

This is by far one of the best flash games I've played. As difficult as any old school games. The ending is lovely and the story (as the game itself) it's simplistic and just a basic idea. That's what makes it so damn beautiful: You don't have to wait for any kind of plot change, you just have to play it.

I don't have any kind of complain, except for difficulty, but there's a "Chicken Mode" so I won't say anything else (I played the hard one, jeez, after you go for that "thing" is dam hard!).

Anyway, my character died several times. But it was worth it.

OMGGGG i finally beat it!!!

IO had to play 20+ times to go to the next flag ARGH its so excruciating why did you have to make the game like this gahhhhh DX

ANyways the ending was worth it i just wished u animated the ending along with the credits in background. I wished the jumping would have been easier cuz its rly rly tricky to get the right spot on the angle of the platforms to slide and jump. alot of this has to do with perfect timing.

This is your first game ?

Wow dude. I truely cannot believe it. I loved this. I hate that you have gotten a few low reviews due to nothing more than players who lack platforming ability. I understand legitimate concerns but complaining about the one difficult thing in the game ("slope jumping") seems a bit ridiculous. Anywho, the minimalistic design is great. The simplistic layout of the levels was great. Great choice of music. Tip of the hat to Peter Gresser. It all fit together very very well. For me it played like a dream. No bugs, glitches, graphical errors etc. The nostalgia is strong with this one. This game is another reminder that oldschool NES style platformers still rock. I wish more developers would realize the marketability of these sort of games towards the slightly aged gamer. Regardless of what happens with this first game, I hope you continue to create games in the future. You really have talent in regards to building a full gaming experience with minimal tools at your disposal. I'm still amazed that this is your first attempt. I've always wanted to be able to create games but every time I start messing around with C++ I am reminded that I have no aptitude for this sort of thing. I might give it another shot after this. To be completely honest, I find this inspiring. Great Job man.

Thank you!

If you want to make games, I really do recommend StencylWorks - I wouldn't have been able to make this game without it. It's much easier to learn than it looks, it has a helpful community on its forums and lots of example games that you can pick apart to see how they work.

Pain and suffering!

This game was far to difficult for the glitchy controls. I have made it just past the ship at the time of posting this and between making it to the first checkpoint and right now, I have probably died 200 times cause it won't let me jump at the end of a slant.


Miktar responds:

My best so far is beating the game with only 8 deaths, without using Easy Mode.

This Game...

Is a great trip of nostalgia back to the Coleco Vision era where the games were simple and inspired use of imagination, great chip tunes, and keyboard smashingly difficult platforming that awards a great feeling of accomplishment when you finally conquer a ridiculous area.
I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for more of your future endeavors, keep up the great work!
