A NEW VERSION!
The new version features Medals and some optimizations for running in 30FPS. The Gameplay should be more fluid now.
It may take a day or two for the new version to be admin accepted!!

Scribbland is an innovative platformer game, where you use only one button to control the player (namely Left Mouse Button). To make the player move you just have to click and hold it, while if you want him to jump release said button. To move in mid-air, quickly release the button and then hold it again.
Your objective is to reach the exit while avoiding hazards and running into walls. You can play the game either in Easy Mode (You don't get killed when you run into wall, there are less enemies but the score is lower) or Hard Mode (Running into wall kills you, there are more enemies but the score is higher). Compete for the best score and get first on the Hiscore Board!

So, I realize some people (or majority) might not like the game thanks to the control scheme. Before you start throwing some wild accusations on me, please realize that the controls were the main quirk of the game and that was my intention from the beginning and it dates back to a couple of years ago to my older project (Happy Runner if anyone is concerned). Most people are just too used to old schemes I guess, whilst I, at least in gaming, am open to all kinds of innovation and I am sure some people will love Scribbland for this (I love the idea of one-button platformer personally).

Well, Thank You very much Newgrounds staff for putting this game on Front Page. I am really honored!

Eh?

It is innovative. But is everything new better than old, good ideas? Hm, in this one, not very much...



Try again

Innovative?... yes,fun?....no. There's no sense of control in this game, you can't go backwards, and you can't even fully rely on his stop, he has poor traction. These would have been awesome controls for another game genre, but not fun for platforming. ):Thanks for using up a freight load of time for making a free game, and using creative skills to try to improve the platformer,but I say try again.


People find this review helpful!

It's alright

Eh, it's not a bad idea, but the controls were frustrating, and it just wasn't enjoyable having onle one button



meh

its not great i was kinda bored most of the time but it could be fine at times



impossible

you cant make a game like this good with only one button


Skellus responds:

Unfortunately, I did. Waiting for the universe to crumble, it should happen any second now, shouldn't it?
