Hey make sure you're LOGGED IN for this one. The medals unlock new levels and new modes.

This is a platformer with 30 stages where you have to manuevre your way out of booby-trapped underground caves. The main trap is that sand's flooding in, but it'll introduce other stuff along the way.

UP TO JUMP.
HOLD DOWN WHILE IN THE AIR TO SPIN DOWN.
RESTART A LEVEL WITH THE SPACEBAR OR R.

I made most of this game like a year ago, when it was just blue-gray blocks jumpin around. I couldn't work out a good aesthetic where the floor was rising but DOESN'T affect the environment. It was only recently when I was thinkin about something completely different an I thought OH YEAH, DUHR, SAND. SAND IS EXACTLY WHAT THIS GAME NEEDS TO BE ABOUT. Then I came back n finished it, made the guy a desert babe.

One o the early ideas I had was that it was a small girl trapped down a well, and the game was called "Let's Get Outta Here". Another idea was that you were on a sinking ship and water was flooding in.
I got the MAIN idea from a level in Jak and Daxter 1 where you're in this silo and this black poison business is rising up, but there's LOADS of games that do a similar idea. I took most of the code from Mighty Tower, a game I made last year which was mostly based on Meat Boy.

Thanks to Newgrounds fo sponsoring, and everyone else who wanted to sponsor.
Also "Pimp of Persia" is like the best named track on the site.
Also here's a walkthrough:

A fun platformer here you bring on some fun elements, I think adding on more achievments and more secrete ones would be nice, The art and graphics on this was nice, and the game itself was pretty fun a nice platformer here

~X~

I might have spent time on that game if not for that annoying music that I cannot mute

sofa's are quicksand

Should be called "Shit controls" instead. When challenge comes not from level design and features but from terrible maneuverability, this means you did something wrong.

The idea is great, but the way you put it is bad.

Not bad, but I gibe up on speedrun mode.
