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.

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.

nitinkumar25195 responds:

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.

nitinkumar25195 responds:

Thank you for the kind words.

Not bad ...

The game became sooo much easier when I've found out that I could kill them. Before that it was a task to get atleast 5 points.

Just a few things:

You can't press 'A' to restart, doesn't work
Medals show up in game but not when on the medal sreen after you reload the page

nitinkumar25195 responds:

Thanks for the feedback. Press "R" to restart.

its good, it just gets boring after a bit.

Difficult and really just lame. I don't like platformers like Geometry Dash where its a square on a plane, and this is definitely one of these. Nothing super special about this game.
