A bit unforgiving with the jumps being decided by your momentum, even the smallest momentum. But giving some visual indicator that your moving instead of changing the mechanics themselves might be the best fix to make it less frustrating for the less patient.

After all, most games arn't frustrating when you know how it works, making sure the learning is fun should really be a goal with instructionless games, to keep the player's "momentum"(unless of course you want more of an 'ah ha!' kind of discovery from the player, but those might be better for supporting mechanics)

I DID see that you put some marks in the background to clue-in and guide the player to these tricks, I'm just putting up another way you could re-enforce it.

also, check the gallery, I cooked somethin' up for ya

learning the controls and tricks was very hard but after a couple of hours you get used to it.
my best time is 51.97 seconds but i'm pretty sure i could have done a little better

edit: i'd almost managed to get a sub 50 but for now my new best is 50.02

ninjamuffin99 responds:

anything under a minute is a very respectable time, it wasnt too long ago when that would've been the WR. I remember when I was competing with my boy for sub 55s

57.73 seconds is my best time.

That's some creative and funny shit!)
Must be scrapped parts for some cool future stuff?))

That was insane.
I was about to give it a low score because I thought the jumping was random, but then I read the description and decided to give it another go. I figured it out eventually.
Getting used to this was really hard, but I guess that was the point.
Figuring out the controls like that is a pretty interesting concept, nice game.
