This game is very small, but very challenging. Can you beat it?

This is my first serious attempt at making a simple platformer engine. The code can definitely be improved upon, but I'm pretty satisfied with it as is.

If the game is completed, a message will appear onscreen. I shall bestow a tremendous e-honor upon those who provide proof of such a victory by sending me a PM containing said message.

Slightly unplayable

I'm having the same problem as Arasmin. It won't jump or move when I tell it, or it won't stop jumping or moving. I've never had this problem with any other game, so I have to assume that it's something about this game.

Stickman91 responds:

I doubt the game is causing the problem, as I've tested it quite thoroughly, although you could be right. But you and Arashmin are the only two who have reported input issues so far, leading me to believe that your browser is a more likely culprit. I know of one browser (Internet Explorer) that has been known to mess up keyboard input in Flash games in a way that produces results that are similar to what you described.

Try playing the game in a different browser and let me know how things work out if you get a chance.

Difficult yet fun

This game is rather difficult! Yet addictive at the same time. :D

I'm glad you think so! Thanks for the review!

Frustrating Fun

I spent two solid hour-long lunch breaks trying to beat this game. I can now get to the block across the jump from the red block fairly easily, but have found no way to successfully get across. You have bested me sir, but it was an enjoyable battle and I enjoyed getting as far as I did.

If it is undefeatable and if the answer lies in one of those tricksy little hidden moments which the internet loves so much then I suspect it may have something to do with the 'use the arrow keys hint', but what do I know?

In conclusion: Can you beat it? No.

You CAN beat it... if you know how!

Thanks for reviewing!

Older systems have a tendency to not like too many arrow keys at once. This makes the game basically unplayable.

Stickman91 responds:

I don't think there's much I can do about that. The issue you're having might be keyboard-related; it could be what's referred to as "keyboard blocking," which is characterized by certain key presses not registering while other keys are being held down. In that case, the only possible solution I know of would be to try playing with a different keyboard.

I can beat it!

Whilst Im not going to publically reveal the ending I got, I have beaten it. I do think the last jump in the game was intended to be impossible but by mere pixels I made it 4 times before understanding the message I got. It was challenging and fun.
I even (After multiple attempts) caught it all on video: oast#p/a/u/0/QkiIlqnZUz0
But clipped out the spoiler ending message.

Nice job, very addictive and entertaining yet frustrating and soul crushingly hard.
