Kastle

Author Comments

Kastle is a one button autorunner about a dashing modern knight in a hellish modern day castle-- excuse me, I mean Kastle. Kastles come equipped with state of the art horizontal portcullises, moving buzzsaws replace the dragon-in-a-moat thing that used to be so popular, and there are always obstacles incoming that only a modern knight (still with a k) can overcome. Modern knight armor comes standard with double jump abilities.

Kastles also tend to spew out time shift flux thingies for some reason, which may alter the speed of the obstacles or boost a modern knight forward. They can be a blessing or a curse, depending on your situation. Use them wisely!

I am not a fan of the auto-run genre, so take this with a grain of salt.

Firstly, auto-run tends to be more fun at higher speeds, even starting off. This one is very sedate compared to ones such as Canabalt, and while the difficulty remains, it makes the overall experience less exciting. The jump is smooth, but somehow feels awkward, especially when I land on the trailing edge of saws I thought I could jump past. There's also a bug where if you got a boost, and you double jump, he suddenly is slammed into the advancing spikes.

I'm not sure if the bug requires more than one condition - I replicated it twice but failed to replicate it a third
time.
