(Just to point out, on the "level select screen" use the arrows to select the level and then go to the option and select play ;P)

(Edit2: I think I might of fixed some lag issues for some people thanks to a very awesome guy called Mr.Fulp pointed me into a direction that might be the cause. However without experiencing any myself (even on the lower end laptops I test the game with,) I can't be certain. Only time I had issues with lag (not with this game) was when a very power draining advert was being displayed at the top.

Secondly, if people are experiencing lag could you please state what browser you're using if you post it in the review section thanks! Although hopefully the edits to the game should hopefully of reduced it less. Another note, it could be Internet Explorer because three friends who played it on Firefox and then Internet Explorer said that IE runs it a bit slower...

Finally thankies for the front page! Seriously means a lot to me, like I say it's a learning experience and try and improve every step along the way!)

(Edit: I've fixed the issues in that some people can't beat level 1-7 and 2-1.)

Well instead of making another shooter I decided to make a puzzle/action/platformer type thing titled MagnetKid. The game is challenging but I've managed to beat it :P.

The title was a little to ambitious for me I believe, but still I tried and I don't think I did too badly :3 I'll prolly work on something smaller next, like a SmashTV type game, I dunno :P

Arrows = Move
A = Jump
S = Switch Polarity
Enter = (Accept Menu)
B (while in game) = Return to menu
M (while in game) = Mute sound
N (while in game) = Unmute sound.

If the MagnetKid's polarity matches the object's polarity, they will repel.
If the MagnetKid's polarity are different to the object's polarity, they will be attracted.
Spikes/Bombs/General hazards will kill you...but you have unlimited lives so...!
Find the four gameboy's to warp to bonus levels and unlock NG medals!

Anyway yeah, I just wanted to give designing a platformer game a stab, I just hope ye likeths :3


(This is my first stab at a platform game, so yanno :P)

bonus 3 is in 3-6

you need to get to the other side of the pit on the first possible cycle, then immediately back to spawn position.
the bonus level entrance appears once you land on the platform with the regular exit.

Love the game, challenging but never lost me. I couldn't work out where Bonus Level 3 was however - any hints?

A good and difficult platformer but sometimes it requires a bit too much pixel perfect precision from the player.

As a SinclairStrange game, it is naturally of high quality, as is typical of his games.

And some of those medals are just plain evil! Note if you're not awarded the "complete blah blah area" type medals after you've completed those areas, replay those areas again but this time skip the gameboys. It was a bit odd to have all areas completed except for area 2 ... until I figured out this quite arcane, completely unintuitive piece of knowledge in my trials of "well, I haven't tried this yet, so might as well try it and see if that's it"

really nice.. if it wasn't so tiny.

i tried zooming in on my browser but you enabled that really annoying some flash developers do for some unknowable reason that makes it so when you zoom in with your browser, the game just shrinks relative to the browser to stay the same size.

plenty of games let you zoom that way and some just want to battle with the user for some reason.

the game seems like it might be a 5. but your attitude towards users is a 0

do you know how to average two numbers? i do.

check it out:

Well executed and good concept. The graphics could be a little more easy on the eye, the things are tiny :) 4/5
