Upwards was made for Ludum Dare 42. Ludum dare is a 48 hour game jam. The theme this time was "running out of space".The current version was completed in a total of 6 days.
The controls are fairly simple. Red enemies just move left to right. Yellow might change direction when you are near.
The game is fast paced and really difficult at top levels.
There are customization options for the trail and some music options.
Scores are posted on their own.

1. There is an issue with one of the yellow kills medal (Yellow Mellow). I have checked the code twice. Also the medal settings. I have not found any issues.

Entertaining game

So this was a fun game really keeps your fingers moving especially with the jumping of the square You have made this out to be an outstanding and Professional game submission now dont get me wrong it does have some spots here and there that could be better, but im sure you will ultimately get to that, but overall this is a good piece of game and I was pleased to see it in its entirely, so nice effort and good job all around on this one


killed them reds and yellows

lol had to die a few times to get tmy last medal.
Fun game.

This is actually good. There was a variety of tracks to listen to, and the gameplay is simple but enjoyable. However I didn't like pressing A to change direction, I'd have prefered if, for example, you could change it with left & right arrow keys.
Also there's not much left to do after you get all medals, but it's still a fun game worth playing a few minutes.

I think it can use more variety and lower difficulty settings. I am in middle of something for now.
Thanks for the feedback.

I assume this game has no end. Honestly, I thought this was pretty good. The best part is probably how simple it is. I got used to it pretty quickly. It can be hard to determine where to land. I didn't understand those red points at first.

Oh, they kill you. I seriously had no idea. The music was very impressive too. For something made in a short time, this was very nice. I can understand its appeal.

Thank you for the kind words.
