Great job! A save feature would be nice, but overall this is a great game. It is challenging yet not unbeatable. The need to make your own platforms is very unique, and makes the game even harder. Overall, a very good game with creative and difficult elements.

Very interesting!

I am glad to have unearthed this interesting submission because it really is quite good. The best thing about it is that it really works well as a puzzle game. You have to look carefully in the lower hand corner to know what is going to come next. This is a game that is great for forming strategy. It might take a few deaths, but it is so unique it truly is worth it. It could have been a bit more detailed as it did not have a background, but still good.

The music is so mundane and it really contrasts with the more complicated gameplay. It was not too hard because you did not have to be on top of a platform to go in the door or get the key. That is quite a big key. This may be the first game I've played here where the description was three different game genres! It does well in every one of them.

awesome work

I think the game is brilliant.
I'd have a question if you could answer it would be awesome. How do you add collision boxes to the platforms ?( i just started working on a little game and got stuck there -lol)

4HorsemenStudios responds:

I'm still using AS2, and you're probably on AS3, but the basic concept is you make all of the platforms one object, named "ground" or whatever, and make your character with the 0,0 marker at his feet, and use hitTest to tell whether your character._x, character._y is hitting "ground"; if he isn't, make him fall. If he is, stop falling.

Hope that helped!

pretty decent game

just wish the controls where better and that there was a save feature.

Best original concept since Portal

Absolutely fantastic concept and a blast to play. Only an 8 because of lousy graphics and not quite enough variety.

4HorsemenStudios responds:

That's quite a statement! Thanks for the review, we'll try harder on the graphics next time.
