Herring Running 2

Author Comments

Herring is back, and this time, some of his friends came to the run too!
In Herring Running 2, your goal is to run for the longest time, jumping and attacking when required in order to surpass the obstacles and increase the highscore. This game is an endless runner, so the farthest you go, the better!

» Different characters:

Herring: Hold to jump higher, can attack.
Scott: Double jump, cannot attack.
And more to come!

Not bad for a game in it's Alpha-phase. It's playable and I like the soundtrack so far.

Maybe you should include the info's about Herring and Scott's abilities in the character screen ingame + a little funny comment about them (why does Scott look so sad?).

While you continue to make a Beta version of your game, you could not only add enemies (as you mentioned in a comment below) but also some kind of collectable items or gold coins to buy new upgrades (weapons, extra speed, more coins to collect, new characters to unlock and so on). This way you would increase the fun for players and add some replay value to your game.

Hope this might help you. Good luck for the future!

Marxally responds:

Thanks for your suggestions!

I planned adding coins or some currency... but never thought of what people could buy with that.
I'll also improve the character selection screen with the stuff you said, or maybe add that to the Help menu.

Again, thanks!

You cant jump over the gaps with the shark dude, the hop isn't nearly enough

Marxally responds:

Are you using your keyboard? The "shark dude" (it's a herring) can only jump with the mouse ATM. The longer you hold down the key, the higher he jumps! :)

Not To Be Rude, But This Game Is Boring. You Should Add More Interesting Stuff. But For Now I'll Give It 2 Stars.

Marxally responds:

What do you consider "interesting stuff"?
My plan is to add flying enemies that you need to dodge or attack.

And thanks for commenting!

It's okay I 'spose. I'd prefer to use keyboard, you might want to integrate that. Other than that, just another endless runner.

Marxally responds:

Thanks for being the first one to comment!

The game's target is mobile users, but I wanted to post it in different game communities, and being Newgrounds one of the most importants, I couldn't miss it.
I'll try to get keyboard functions ASAP, shouldn't be an issue.

pd: Happy 2017!
