  • About

This was an idea in the making that I stopped working on, I am bringing it back for the Revival Game Jam. More Level Updates will be added every week!

  • Game Description 

Cave running platform game. How many coins can you find on each level? Can you find them all? Avoid any enemies and classic spikes. 

Find Gems for more health and even MORE points

Use A and D keys to move and press the space bar to jump.

Graphics are nice. I kinda like the retro look. I'm afraid that's where the good news ends. It gets boring, because there is no real progress. Enemies are too easy and too far apart. You need to have a progression/evolution. other enemies, other obstacles/dangers. Just longer levels is not enough.
-The collisions/boundaries are not correct (you sometimes float on mid air on "ramps" and you lose a heart without really touching an enemy).
- The controls need improvement (for example jumping beside a box sucks) and sometimes get stuck, especially in corners.
-There is also no visual feedback when finishing a level or losing a heart. Something needs to happen (sprite animation, window shaking or turning red... something).
- Some sprite animation would be nice.
I had to try 3 browsers to get it to work.
- Safari black screen after clicking play.
- Firefox needs correct window focus because when you press space it scrolls down and you lose the game window
- worked in chrome. didn't notice any lag, played about 4 or 5 levels.

Wow! Thank you this is some excellent damn feedback! Not sure why only chrome im trying to fix that the most. More visual animation is defiantly a must you are right, and i can fix the hit boxes as well. I really do appreciate this incredible feedback from you and i hope to get you as a player on my games later on!

The space key doesn't work, scrolls the webpage even when the focus is on the game. Completely unplayable :(

OuterSpaceGames responds:

Do you click the on the game its self? It only does that for me if i click off the game.. please let me know

I really like the idea of this game, but the lag is so bad that the game is nigh unplayable. My inputs don't register in time, so I can't predict when to jump over enemies or where I'll land on platforms if I haven't already jumped over them. I like the music, but it stops partway through a level. The concept is great, but the execution is poor.

OuterSpaceGames responds:

Thank you for the input. Im still working on the laggy gameplay. What kind of browser are you playing on?

iilove it so much it the best. The controls are easy the play through gets harder and harder.

OuterSpaceGames responds:

Thank you for playing and the feedback! Was there anything you didn't like you think should change? Also was the gameplay laggy for you?
