(Just to point out, on the "level select screen" use the arrows to select the level and then go to the option and select play ;P)

(Edit2: I think I might of fixed some lag issues for some people thanks to a very awesome guy called Mr.Fulp pointed me into a direction that might be the cause. However without experiencing any myself (even on the lower end laptops I test the game with,) I can't be certain. Only time I had issues with lag (not with this game) was when a very power draining advert was being displayed at the top.

Secondly, if people are experiencing lag could you please state what browser you're using if you post it in the review section thanks! Although hopefully the edits to the game should hopefully of reduced it less. Another note, it could be Internet Explorer because three friends who played it on Firefox and then Internet Explorer said that IE runs it a bit slower...

Finally thankies for the front page! Seriously means a lot to me, like I say it's a learning experience and try and improve every step along the way!)

(Edit: I've fixed the issues in that some people can't beat level 1-7 and 2-1.)
(Edit: For people on slower computers a standalone exe can be found 'ere: )

Well instead of making another shooter I decided to make a puzzle/action/platformer type thing titled MagnetKid. The game is challenging but I've managed to beat it :P.

The title was a little to ambitious for me I believe, but still I tried and I don't think I did too badly :3 I'll prolly work on something smaller next, like a SmashTV type game, I dunno :P

Arrows = Move
A = Jump
S = Switch Polarity
Enter = (Accept Menu)
B (while in game) = Return to menu
M (while in game) = Mute sound
N (while in game) = Unmute sound.

If the MagnetKid's polarity matches the object's polarity, they will repel.
If the MagnetKid's polarity are different to the object's polarity, they will be attracted.
Spikes/Bombs/General hazards will kill you...but you have unlimited lives so...!

Anyway yeah, I just wanted to give designing a platformer game a stab, I just hope ye likeths :3


(This is my first stab at a platform game, so yanno :P)



Rated 4 / 5 stars

I really liked this game. The graphics remind me of older games, the music seems real industrial and feels like it belongs I just wish it was a little longer. The gameplay is fun and challenging. To me this seems like a well made game.

If I ever make a sequel, I'll try and make it longer :3

Ninja Gaiden called, they want their difficulty back. Pros: Nice style, nifty gameplay mechanic, good music, clever level design, addicting, overall well made game. Cons: At some points it was difficult to tell if something was in the foreground or background; jump and switch polarity buttons being right next to each other breeds some confusion confusion and killed me more than a couple times; and did I mention that this was probably the HARDEST FUCKING GAME I'VE EVER PLAYED? Seriously, this was more frustrating than playing mario with a broken jump button. However, with that said, it is still a very good game, especially being your first platformer.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Meh, It was alright. Well put together, but it just didn't pull me in. Great platformer, just not.....Exciting enough. For me anyways. I can understand this is your first try at making a platformer, and so you did really well. Keep trying though!

2 Stars for effort, 2 for gameplay.

5/5 R, though, because this WAS your first platformer.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Well made :) I really enjoyed the chunk of the game I played and although at times I found it frustrating I think that it's great! :)

Well executed and good concept. The graphics could be a little more easy on the eye, the things are tiny :) 4/5
