EDIT: Wait, seriously? We're already frontpaged? That was quick XD Thanks guys!

Welcome to Forward! This game is all about running and jumping and flipping and warping and jumping some more and hitting stars and hitting doors and hitting flippers and hitting your head on walls and all that fun stuff. The controls are explained in-game, and they're aren't the most intuitive controls in the world. You'll have to get used to them to overcome the challenges ahead, and they aren't easy...

Keep in mind that, for both of us, this is our second game. It isn't going to be the best thing you've ever played, but I hope it's not trash, either. There are going to be bugs, and there are going to be problems, so don't get super disappointed when you encounter them. We would appreciate it if you mentioned these problems in a review in a constructive manner, as that feedback is what's going to help us fix them and create better content in the future. Thanks!

So here we go... Forward. Enjoy!

We now have an official forum where you can list bugs and stuff. Check it out here: http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1411393#bbspost25868130_post_text

v1.2 - July 7, 2016
Fixed bug where jumping wasn't working when running up to a raised platform
Fixed "wall hugging"
Introduced game forum

v1.1 - July 1, 2016
Fixed some platform sprite errors
Fixed a level with 1 too many stars
Reduced starting volume for background music and sound effects to half in order to reduce lag

NOTE: The medals are currently in development. It is currently not possible to get any of them. Also, if you are experiencing some lag, try turning down the background and sfx volumes by entering the pause menu (done my pressing "p") and then moving the sliders to the left. If the arrow keys don't suit you well, you can used W and S if you are more comfortable with it.

this is pretty sick, why is the average 3 stars?

1f1n1ty responds:

Because it's not good enough to have 4 stars, obviously???

Actually the real reason it has 3 is because Newgrounds gives experience points to people who vote on games, which means to farm experience points people will go to games and give "dummy votes" on them to get points. Generally the vote they give will be the same as the current star rating, which means once my score settles to about a 3, there's no going back.

it occurs to me i haven't written a review for this despite me playing this when it came out. Anyway I enjoy playing this good job!

1f1n1ty responds:


Before this was made, I had this exact idea. No joke.

1f1n1ty responds:

Great minds think alike! Kinda...

if you add a tiny amount of bounce to the physics material of the walls like .001 or somethin, that should keep you from clinging to them while you're holding the button. might stop the lil face from getting stuck in corners sometimes also but i'm not sure :o

on the last green level i could get stuck pretty consistently at the little ledge on the right side, hop the pit then charge at it fullspeed

on the last blue level you need to use momentum to change directions, since they're all kind of the tutorial section maybe you should mention it onscreen

though you do have a reset button mentioned at the start, a dedicated restart button onscreen all the time may be better.

that's all i got :O

1f1n1ty responds:

I've solved the wall clinging thing by making the friction of all the walls 0. I've maintained the friction of the floor, though, so there's no infinite sliding. We'll hopefully be uploading the new patch soon... we just have to get medals to work :/

I was thinking of hinting the player on that last blue stage. Thanks for the response.

I feel like a reset button on the screen would be inconvienient for most, as the game is played entirely with the keyboard, and having to reach to your mouse, move the cursor over a button, click the button, and return to the keyboard seemed like a lot of unnecessary motion. Hence, the R key got the reset function.
