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.

Amazing game with a splendid soundtrack, but...

Most of the jumps are pixel-perfect, making them incredibly difficult and frustrating get past. The jump right after Muu's alien girl is taken is IMPOSSIBLE, (the one with a jump to a small slope, and then a four block distance jump to another small slope) so that's where I stopped.

Miktar responds:

I'm glad you liked it. I can vouch that every jump is quite possible, though as RedApeGuy highlighted, I really needed a tutorial to better explain the ski-jumping.

I'm surprised you didn't turn on Easy Mode though, instead of quitting.

Shows potential!

This little flash game shows a lot of potential. The "slope-jumping" mechanic was unique, haven't seen something like it before. It took me a while (and a hand full of deaths) to grasp the concept, but once I understood how it worked, I managed to pull off the jumps without too much trouble. If this were going to be made into a fully realized game, you might want a brief tutorial level that teaches how to do the jumps, or simpler "intro" levels where you can experiment with the game's mechanics in a safer environment.

The graphics, while simple, are cute and crisp, and are just fine for the game's purposes. I like the little characters, and I have to admit, the little black screaming men scared me the first time one ran at me.

The music was enjoyable and conveyed just the right mood for the game's various areas.

All in all, this is fun game, and I'd like to see its concepts explored further at some point in the future!
