The game is actually, good.
The graphics are well done for Flixel and the music is pretty good, very catchy and fits the game quite well.
The gameplay is simple, like almost every game of this genre.
However, if you're going to have one of these "Go as high as you can" games an upgrade or two might be good.
And i think you should remove this kind of gimmick of making a higher jump if you press the button at the right time.
There wasn't not even a single time where it saved me, however it made me lose the game a lot of times, because many times i thought it was going well but it jumped higher than it should, taking me to a spike.
That's another thing i'd like to discuss, the hit detention for the spikes.
If i run into a spike i have no problem in losing, that's what the game's about, after all, but when a single pixel of my ear touches the spike and that makes me lose it's kind of unfair. Going straight to the point it's not fair when such a small part of the ear, such a small amount of space, can make me lose the game because i wasn't 100% accurate.
Other than that, the game is quite addictive. I higly recommend using a Joystick to play this with JoyToKey or a similar software, since it might fit better with this game.
So overall great game, a little timewaster with some good gameplay and excellent music.
@killerpac12 what he means is that it makes you lose more than it saves you, exactly what i'm saying in this review.

It's hard but a awesome game. It took me a while till I know that you can change the hight of your jump by full pressing the space bar or just tab it. It's only bad that's nothing like that in the instructions.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

ummm ya awesome game

but the speed up thing IS working just press jump at the right time to speed up (like when you hit the wall)

Nice retro music/art,very simple gameplay which is at the same time addictive.But honestly-i think it needs more "towers" and more obstacles - jumping the same "tower" every new game just starts to get a bit boring after a while,the same counts for obstacles-other than that nice gameplay idea for using one key.
