Platform 1 is my first crack at a flash game and I think it turned out ok.
You play as a cowboy (don't ask), running to catch a train. Control his speed, sideways steps and most importantly, his balance, to beat the clock and make it to your train on time!

Please excuse the artwork - basic I know but that's what I aimed for. The focus was on gameplay and functionality not on the visuals.

(designed for Flash Player 9 and above)

Let me know what you think.

TIP: Be a bit gentle with the controls at first to get to grips with the balance.

TIP: If you're leaning one way and try and make your legs go the other, you'll be in trouble!

TIP: Stay on the platform long enough and you'll be rewarded by 4 amusing little PA announcements.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

original idea & well executed

Firstly the bad... and the bad is just tech issues, which I hope you fix cos it would improve the game experience a lot.

1. AUDIO! I've heard the audio for this game and it really adds to the setting. Shame it is missing!

2. Game doesn't work in the pop-up window, weird, not sure what could be causing it.

Now the good...

Great, original idea and for your first AS project it's a good effort!

Makes for a challenging game, thanks for putting this up as I keep coming back to this game, I really like it. Reminds me off a Rockstar mini game, like one from Bully or something.

The balance (1&2 keys) counteracts nicely with the step left and right movements (arrow keys) really makes the game playable and fun.

The level design is pretty good, challenges the player at every obstacle, I was dodging left & right all over the shop! Almost dropped my boots! - LOL

Nice One! 9 out of 10! (would have been a cool 10 out of 10 if weren't for the tech issues)

Needs better graphics, easier controls, better environment, perhaps with other people around too.

Not Bad!

Pretty good for a "first game", I like the idea. However the controls didn't work with the pop up window. Seemed fine the other way though. Could that be a problem with newgrounds? I don't know.

Also why do you get stopped by a leaf on a plant??? Last time I walked by a plant in real life and hit a leaf it didn't slow me down so I don't know why it should slow me down here. I also got stuck bouncing side to side between two plants and couldn't get unstuck until it just kind of worked its way out of it.(maybe the plants are to close together?)

Fix those couple things add some levels, music, sound effects and you could have a great game.

Nice work!

This game is a challenge. If you don't like challenges this game isn't for you, but if you do like challenges look no further than this game! There are a great variety of obstacles and they don't repeat them selves so often. So play this game for a great challenge!
