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.

My love for you is eternal space dinosaur!

Wow this game has one simple mechanic; jumping. Yet this game had the right amount of difficulty to keep me playing to pass those jumps. C'mon people, some of you are describing your playthrough as simply pressing the jump button, and it doesn't seem to work out. Time those jumps ya'll, those slopes are your friends not your enemies!

excellent game 5/5. enjoyable music. If there were no checkpoints, I think I would have rage quit.
and I didn't even know there was an easy mode til I read the author comments. oh well, all medals for me!

I thought that this was a very fun game. Although it was a little difficult at some times, I thought it was worth it to play this game. I finished the whole game in about 10 minutes. For the ski jump thing in the wastelands, I figured this out by jumping all over the place because I was starting to get a little irritated and that is when I jumped on the slopes and was instantly lunged forward at high speeds. Also, I loved the peaceful and lovely music. Hint for the last secret medal: Deal with the difficulty.
All in all, this was a great platformer and was a fun experience.

Awesome game Miktar! You captured the old-school platformer feel superbly. Short and sweet, which I have often felt platformers should be. I just would have liked a bit more control when on the slope jumps. Other than that, a very cool and well-rounded experience.

I didn't manage to finish it, but what I saw of it was very nice - the style, the music, everything fit together very well. It reminded me of a mixture of Knytt and Super Mario Bros. (a good thing, BTW).

But as I said, I didn't manage to finish it. The last jump in the Ruins kept me trying for a while already; the first one in the Wastes was outright impossible. I tried for several minutes, then switched to easy mode, tried some more, found I still couldn't do it, and ultimately gave up in frustration.

Looking at the previous reviews, I think I'm not the only one who had problems, either. I'm aware of the ski jump mechanic, but I couldn't pull it off well enough to, well, pull it off. (Maybe I'm just getting slow.)

Fix that, though, and you'll have a real winner on your hands.


Miktar responds:

It's a tough call. If I fix that "problem", then I'd be fixing what all the people who told me they loved the game for its difficulty, thought was perfectly fine. Were you having a low framerate though? I found that framerate can make all the difference between success and failure in Muu, which is something I don't have much control over.
