Arrow keys left and right to move,
Or A and D to move.

I gave myself a challenge to try and make a game in 48 hours (bear in mind I am new to game development) this is what I came up with.

Press Blue Square in bottom corner for full screen!

Have to agree with the other comments, the character movement sucks. Other than that it's not bad. I especially like the dance in place animation and the music fits the gameplay really well. Also, you could slow down the falling a little bit, and I would recommend letting the player choose the obstacle spawn rate by pressing space.

i dont see y u couldn't just make an idle animation. also y is it so laggy if theirs no good graphics or even too many sprites on screen. im sorry :(

As I said in the description I am new to game development and couldn't figure out how to add an idle animation although I did try.

The acceleration of the player character makes dodging a bit frustrating. Also, the character has too much momentum considering how precise your movements have to be. I died a lot of times simply because my character kept walking after I stopped pressing a movement key.
The sawblades that move in a curve are total bullshit as well. I honestly have no idea how you are supposed to avoid them besides luck.

It was not that good, your character movies a little clunky. You should add a score though that would help, gives the incentive to live as long as possible. Maybe make your death really violent looking too, and make your character not a stick figure.
