Thank you for the feature, Newgrounds! :D

- Use the WASD or arrow keys to move Bit. Up/W jumps. Hold the jump key longer to make Bit jump higher.
- When you have Blocks available, click the screen or press Space to enter Block Mode. Click to place the currently selected Block. Click the exit Block mode button or press Space to exit Block Mode.
- When you have multiple Blocks, click the arrows beside the currently selected Block or press Q/E to scroll through them.
- If you get stuck, press Esc to self-destruct Bit. Don't worry, Bit re-uploads itself, so you can retry the level!
- Hit Down or S to activate a Goal Block and complete a level!

UPDATE #1 - Medals added!

In this 2D puzzle/platformer, you play as the lovable and optimistic robot, Bit. You must make your way through the perilous, challenging, robot-killing levels of a human-less planet. Luckily, Bit is programmed to upload special Blocks into the world around it! Got ice in your way? No problem! Place a Fire Block to melt the ice and clear the path! Platform too high? Psh! Place a Moving Block to carry you! Alien Lasers giving you trouble? Puh-lease! Drop a Crystal Block to protect you! This may all sound easy, but you're going to need all your side-scrolling and puzzle-solving skills to beat all 35 levels that we've created.

In addition to the 35 levels, BlockHopper features a full-fledged level editor that allows players to share their own levels with the world! With limitless user-made levels, BlockHopper has potentially infinite replayability! Along with tight controls, old-school pixel-art graphics, incredible music from Starship Amazing (http://www.starshipamazi ng.com), and witty banter that only a chipper, "life"-loving robot could spout, BlockHopper waits for you to run, hop, and think your way to victory!

BlockHopper is also available on on the Apple App Store! Play and create levels on the go on your iOS device!

This is a great game, though there's plenty of room for improval, as a level-designer geek âEU" such as myself âEU" sees it:

1. Enemies
This game would be awesome if a bunch of enemies were targetting Bit.

2. Gating/Bridging Blocks
I would use different icons to distinguish opening, closing and toggling blocks, and leave colors to distinguish individual sets.

3. Map designing Blocks
I would so love to be able to put down custom blocks in my level design. Why separate them from the standard kit so much?

4. Other Blocks
It would be awesome if there were crates to be pushed/pulled/carried around. Stuff like ladders to climb around would be also great, or sorts of mission-critical timers that would set off a nuke and provide a time limit or something. Maybe some sort of goo-cover to slow down player movement when it would be important e.g. when running from a moving crusher block.

5. Smaller Hit Area
I had a lot of problem with the hitbox of Bit. He died in my first map a lot in the crusher challenge area so often that I had to seriously decrease its challenge level.

I thought this was a pretty interesting game, because it was nice to see how so many people had different things to put on the table. What I didn't like is that some of the levels were just mediocre. Of course, there's pages of these things, so it always helps to keep on going. I think the graphics are all around good. It reminded me of the stuff by Nitome. I knew those guys had made so many games people had made stuff similar to their material.

I think the name is pretty cool too. It's not as good as many other customizable games, but it's still creative. You really have to mess with the level to get past it some times. Many times I just play with the controls and see what happens. I like the robot protagonist.

Thanks for the props! We usually come up with a quick name and then over time we get used to it and it becomes the actual name. Glad you liked it!

Awesome game, really creative idea and fun to play! I would have given 5 stars if the timer was taken, out, the game would have been more fun that way (at least I think so). The jumps could be tweaked a little, but overall great!

I like the game a lot, but why is it timed? I was hoping for a game where I could relax and figure out the block placement for each level, but instead I'm frantically clicking and tapping in the hope of getting medals.
