Oh no! You were peacefully doing math with Mr. Wells and then Jordan had to come and be a pest. He snatched your calculator! Quick, run you, you've gotta retrieve it; your most prized possession! Hurry, and avoid all the obstacles that are in your path.

Easily the hypest running on newgrounds! Voice acting was top notch! Can't be beat!

I really like the art-style.
About the gameplay, I´m not sure if I´m doing it right, but for me it feels impossible to beat. Like others have pointed out, the respawn into harms way is annoying and frustrating. The double and triple obstacles are too hard to time right, I never make them. Controls feels a bit slugish, but that could be on my end.
Glitch? Sometimes when I duck I clear ground obstacles.
The voiceacting was great.

Not bad. Some backgrounds would have helped: white objects on a white background are hard to follow (though the green outlines helped some). Otherwise the only other criticism I can think is that there could have been a way to adjust the respawn so you don't get knocked down as soon as you reappear by objects already on the screen.

It's a good start. the speaking was a bit hard to understand. One big problem that I had was if you tripped over something, it would often respawn you into another obstacle which sort of caused a bunch of lost lives with nothing you could do to prevent it. Overall, a good game. I look forward to seeing what you have next. Good luck!

Thank-you for your input! I agree about the spawning, it can be quite annoying, but I've got to say that it's an improvement over what it was before...


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

I'm going to be honest here. This game is... lacking. The cutscenes require lip-syncing and more fluid sound quality; which brings me to the music. It's an assault on the ears, as better tracks could have been chosen. Animation could also be improved, as even the main character's walk cycle is quite... vague. Unfortunately, the most lackluster feature is the gameplay. Floor-based obstacles are rather unforgiving, as your jump does bugger-all.

However, I'll give credit where credit is due. The voice actors are perfect, not to mention being kind enough to mention a retired acquaintance of yours.

In conclusion, the only thing here lost was potential.
