High Scores

Here's my take on the endless side-scrolling score-chaser. Tallboy is one of those characters that shouldn't exist...but here he is.

It's simple: Eat and get taller. The taller you are, the bigger your score multiplier. Also, collect the black+white trophies on the way!

EDITS: Thanks for your comments h8rs! I've made a few edits to the game. Balanced it to be more difficult.
EDIT EDIT: Apparently the changing background made it run slow sometimes? Anyways I put it back.

inb4 tallboy as phallic symbol.


Not the most original, and I hate the pace, too slow walk, and especially too slow death to replay button. The adjusting mouth height is confusing (how do you do it in keyboard mode), and I don't whether to jump, or lift mouse, duck or move mouth down, and because the jump has too much vertical for its horizontal distance, I still somehow miss the food. Also, the obstacle hit boxes are stupidly big (with annoying sounds, I might add)...how could I get the food just underneath them? And is the building even an obstacle? It looks like part of the background, and it looks like their no way to avoid it.
Overall, bad and weird game...not funny either.

There's a double jump. And it's also highly possibly that you're just bad at video games. :\

It's weird. It's funny. It's addictive. I love it!

Like the concept of this game a lot, very creative.
One big complaint are the mouse controls, why does tallboy jump when you release the mouse button, not when you click it. this was very confusing to me, and had me die a lot.

For what it was, you could hardly have done a better job on this; it's great stuff. The music was a perfect fit for it and the art design was cheerful and entertaining.
I think my only two complaints, and they're small at that, is that all of the movement in the background could sometimes be distracting, but I don't know if I would have liked the game as much without it. I'm conflicted there. Additionally, a pause function would have been great.
A few neutral points I have: I found the game much easier to control with keyboard controls enabled, as it allowed me to use both hands more easily. That said, trying to control the cursor with a laptop touchpad was incredibly difficult, as sometimes the page would scroll down and I'd get nailed by something overhead when I couldn't see the screen. That pause button would be awesome here.
In total, it takes some time to get a rhythm going and to work into a stride, but this was thoroughly entertaining and made my morning :)

Sorry bout the lag! It seems like it lags at random and I'm not sure what causes it.
