Don't Drown

My first game, 'Don't Drown', is a hard as nails platformer that you won't be able to stop playing. Run, jump, and glide your way through a maze of pitfalls and spikes, but don't take too long: the water is rising! Simple to learn, difficult to master, how many times will you die trying to reach freedom?

'Arrow keys' - Move left and right
'Spacebar' - Jump
'Double tap Spacebar' - Glide

Was alright graphics needed some work but was fun

Huh. Amazing! I stopped playing!
But all joking aside.
The graphics and music are ugly, and the gameplay gets old. Also, the controls are too stiff and floaty. Needless to say I got sick of it before I even got close. (I think.)

Well the only thing that bugged me was that as soon as I touched the water I died. I thought that the character should be able to get submerged and when the head was underwater, after 5 seconds he would die. Unless this is lava, not water, which would make more sense. Other than that, it is a pretty good adicting game

I don't know if controls are weird or I'm so bad, but in fact I think it is a very simple nice game considering that it's your first game.

Gameplay is dull, and uninteresting, the movement is very off-putting, the gliding is very clunky.
