Sshhh! Here's an explanation of the game rules, if you keep it between us: You’re on the run from the fuzz, and if the blinding police lights reach you then it’s game over. To escape, you gotta run and jump from building to building. If you fall to the ground you'll want to get back up ASAP, cause running into pedestrians will cause you to trip and lose speed! Try dodging them until you reach a platform low enough to jump onto, or try to springboard back up. Oh, and I hear that "The Man" has officers stationed on rooftops to block you!

Here’s what the establishment doesn’t want you to know: You can use the up arrow, W key or south gamepad button to jump! Your jump height depends on how quickly you let go of the input.

Now don't go spilling what I'm about to tell you: Parkour vault over police officers or pedestrians to boost yourself! Right before running into ‘em, you’ll see a purple icon above you. That’s when you hit the right arrow, D key or east gamepad button, but you’ll lose speed if you’re too early or late.

You didn't hear it from me, but peep this info: Hit the jump button right before running into someone and you'll springboard way into the air! It can help you get back up from the ground, and you’ll need to do it to finish later levels. I recommend practicing in the tutorial.

Don't go runnin' your mouth off about this either: You can use the M key to mute the music or the N key to skip to the next song!

The word in the streets is this: You can use the escape key to pause / unpause the game! While paused, you can use the backspace key to return to the main menu.

Keep this under your hat, but my sources say this: You can double tap the R key to restart the level!

Good luck, kid. I was never here, got it?

Nice platformer

Wow this was intense especially with the backround effects and police sounds and whatnot really made for a nice game here Here was another fun platformer game you really make it seem fun and the concept and ideas that you bring into this platformer seem to really jump out at you and create a fun experience I was pretty impressed with your work here, and you made a very fun platformer game here, These are the best kinds of platformer type of games hope you make even more like this one.
