Author Comments

UPDATE: Complete release on Steam coming later this year.

You play as a grape named Barry, who's seemingly met his end at the dreaded Jam factory. But Barry doesn't go down easily. Escape the Jam Factory in this fast-paced platforming adventure


Move with the arrow keys/WASD, jump with spacebar, and interact with Up/W.

The xbox360 / xbox one gamepad are also supported and highly encouraged.

games great but i cant get past the one area where there is a conveyer belt and 2 and a half sawblades

A very funny game with a very nice concept. There is not acctually a story behind what we are doing in the game, it's a concept. Still we can imagine what is happening to our comrade grape.
I enjoyed several minutes (and lifes) on this game. It's somehow adictive, hard but not too much, there's a nice soundtrack obviously not copyrighted (lol), the character has expressions even in few bits and that's something to take note.
The controls are smooth and not heavy, the jump and Grape's Speed are nice.
I liked the funny way the purple color was in the walls symbolizing grape blood haha, makes me feel trapped and relieved at same time haha.

Fun game, it reminds me a lot of Super Meat Boy. The pixel graphics are nice and so is the music

A vegetarian Meat Boy Lite

In one of the last levels - the one with a sign that reads "Balcony" - I cannot achieve vertical jump height to jump over 2.25 saw gears straight after conveyor platform no matter how long and hard do hold space bar with either of my two keyboards. I can complete game up to that point in 12 deaths, but I cannot get past that point with more then 400 attempts over multiple game sessions. It annoys me I cannot complete this game. I test my jump height at start of this level and it is random. When jumping while standing an entrance doors straight up I can sometimes touch ceiling and sometimes I cannot. Space bar is pressed to max always. The conveyor can be utilized to increase horizontal distance, but vertical height required is seemingly impossible.

I was really angry and wanted to give this no stars, but I decided to give two just in case if it is something wrong with my system. Never had such problem in any other game trough. I would give this game a 7/10 if not for this game breaking issue.

EDIT: The issue is was that the last level is unsolvable on cetain browsers, because the jump height to clear the saws after the elevator is unreachable in them for some reason. For me - it was impossible to finish the game in Firefox. I managed to complete the game in IE.

The Ending was not worth it.

I'm sorry to hear that you had trouble completing the last level. I've not seen this issue before, would you mind private messaging me some more information about your system? Like which browser and browser version you used, what processor/ram/graphics card you have etc? And I can help diagnose

Thank you so much for playing though and taking the time to write a review!

Fun, simple plaformer- enjoyed it. I liked the 3-colour graphics scheme, having controller support, and the level design was fairly good.
