cool game, bro
I got 3023m first try ;P
I hope you come up with more good games like this!
had so much fun !
Fun but frustrating
As I keep playing this, the one thing I keep noticing is that my jumping reflexes are completely used to the idea of being able to modify my jump height (and thus the length of my jump) based on the duration of the button press. This, however, is not supported by the game.
I realize that I can get essentially the same effect by speeding up and slowing down, but that makes the "run at fast speed for X seconds" achievements much more luck based than it should be.
Otherwise very smooth game.
Canabalt with more buttons
This is a good game. And even though it's modeled after Canabalt, it definitely doesn't feel like a carbon copy.
In fact, in a lot of ways this is more like a platformer and less like a reflex game (which Canabalt certainly is).
For me, I prefer Canabalt because of its speed and style, but your game deserves the attention and has a rewarding learning curve.
My only real beef with the game: Sometimes when my ninja takes a swing on his chain he dips below the screen and dies even though I could have otherwise landed the jump. I don't know if this is an easy fix or not, but it would make the game feel a little better.
Great review. Thanks!
