fun for a lil bit


Alright game but I don't know why you didn't just throw in mochiscores or something. "Local highscores" is never fun :P. If the whole point of the game is to raise a big score, I'd like to compare/share it with others. Graphics are good and gameplay is alright but it felt a bit pointless to play because of the highscore issue.

Pretty fun...

I gave it about 4 runs... i'll definitely come back and play more... real fun, addictive gameplay... simple to play, difficult to master but ever run I did was better than the last... great job

only thing wrong would be to add some trick animations and ability to control your character on the water or air

pretty good

this game is good not the best ive ever played but not the worst
