-- Update 1 --

So some early feedback from you newgrounds seems to follow these trends:

1. Fuck memes! Gimmicks! Attention seekers!
2. Glitchy, buggy, laggy
3. Confusing

So let me clear some things up. First, yes, there are memes, and yes they're played out. Is this a big master plan to gain extra attention? Partially. It has it's benefits, but we had fun making it and it was entertaining to create power ups and achievements based on or relating to the different memes. So try not to think too negatively about it, because voting us down for using something a lot of people enjoy is kind of silly and you look like you're being a hipster.

Second, I apologize for the bugs. Believe it or not, we did do a lot of testing, and I think a lot of the bugs have to do with slower machines not being able to keep up. If anyone has any problems with lag, not being able to run or the ground disappearing, please let me know your system specs so I can see about replicating and repairing the problems. I'll release a patch as soon as I can.

Third, the camera is not supposed to move with the character. This is admittedly a bit confusing because one would expect it to as you go past the edge of the screen, but that was never the intention. Part of the difficulty of the game is staying in view, and not losing track of where you are. I can't really change this at this point but if it's really that bad then if we do a game similar to this one again we'll make sure to have it follow the character exactly.

If you have any other questions or suggestions, I'd like to hear them because there's a good chance we might tackle a sequel that addresses all of the concerns and problems this game raises (also multiplayer, anyone interested?) and I'm always interested to read constructive feedback and criticism.

Keep running and avoid those nasty spike blocks and vanishing blocks to get the highest score! Your favorite internet memes make an appearance to help you get further! But they wont do it for free! The further you run, the more money you get, the more upgrades you can buy!

-- Controls --

Arrow Keys to control character (stay on screen!)
A to Stroll (When Stroll meter is full)
S to use Nyan Cat (When upgrade is purchased)
D to use Rocket Jumps (When upgrade is purchased)
F to use the block switcher (When upgrade is purchased)

P pauses the game and has an options menu where you can set volume sliders for music and sound effects individually if either gets irritating

I don't like the scrolling of this game, I can hardly ever see myself.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Lot of fun, but

I find it rather annoying that the spike saves only last one round, then you have to buy them all over again. At least make it so you can only have like 3 or so, but you don't have to buy them every single round.

Besides that, the game was hilarious as hell

Needs lots of brushing up

I only bothered with this game because I'm a sucker for toss/distance games.

But this feels like a really poorly made beta. Here are some observations:
-the controls are clunky and generally feel misaligned with the moving screen and the frequency of spikes. Most of the time the controls aren't responsive enough to get you out of the way in time.
-the hitbox for coins is annoyingly small. Also, was it just me or do you have to be near the surface to get coins? Basically this is a disincentive to ever get high up in the air, which all the upgrades seem to push you toward. Doesn't make any sense.
-the art could use serious brushing up. Also, some of the animation frames seem sloppy, especially during landing
-the physics of running seem weird. Sometimes I start slow, sometimes I get a running start, sometimes I don't move at all. You start too slowly and accelerate too quickly.
-note the moving screen which everybody is complaining about. I know it felt innovative, but if people don't like it you should probably take it out.
-just coins? Could use other (non-upgradable) items in the air just to make it feel more "substantial," I don't know. At least different amounts of coins?
-having the upgrades say something besides "true" and "false" will make this feel less like an alpha build of something
-I personally liked the meme theme a lot, while others here probably disagree.
-the delays were annoying (after dying, scrolling through upgrade menus) - the whole menu system seems unnecessarily delayed
-goals would be nice.

Despite all this, it kept my interest for about 15 minutes. It felt a little unique, and was entertaining. I think if you seriously polished this up it could be much better.

Cheat Found

Few things wrong with the game, few may been intentional. Note I haven't finish the game, evidently I am stilling playing it. When using the Nyan cat the blocks at the bottom sometimes disappear, maybe intentional. Also Nyan cat price always increasing, despite usage. Right now some bomb blocks didn't disppear and have remained slightly off screen. My character lands on them, they don't disappear, and I balanced my fall to land on them nonstop. My distance and money is slowly increase while I do nothing.

I'm off to watch television while my score goes up. :p

Eh, not bad

Pretty cool, like the upgrades and the style.
Its quite a pain in the ass that you die if you go too far off screen. The speedy start upgrade had no effect when I played.
I also noticed dying a number of times when smacking stones too hard or hitting spikes with a bounce or two left.
