Yes this is rushed. I had 1 day to make this

Controls: arrow keys, spacebar.

the moment you run the game, you will get right into the action

Made for the Quarantine 2021 jam

EDIT: I polished up the game a little more

Spacebar scrolls the page. Playing on firefox.
edit: works fine with shift now

noodlstudios responds:

I made the Shift key an alternate jump button, if that helps.

Love this Larry (ch)aracter!!! This took me a few tries and is quite fun on a limit!! however it is basic and would love to see more levels!!

noodlstudios responds:

Might add some more levels if I get that bored, other than that Larry is a now accepted character into the Noodl Studios universe after such positive feedback. Thank you for your feedback.

It was fine. You just need to improve on a few things

noodlstudios responds:

Thanks. I will improve over time on my games and get better.

Okay, I get that this is a rushed game, made simply for a jam, but theres def a few things I need to go over.

So, you definitely were not lying about getting right into the action, the wall immediately bum rushes you the moment you run the game. Could use some sort of simple menu, or at the very least, a count down.

I had a bit of a strange time playing. A few of the jumps require you to (as far as I can tell) slow down, since the next platform is so close, you would overshoot it if you kept running. This is sorta difficult since the wall is so fast and you can barely outrun it and give yourself extra time.
If you don't get a good head start, then its a guaranteed death very early on.

Minor complaints would be the lack of variety. You could maybe add some backgrounds, some music, maybe even a death counter/timer in the corner. The game is very rough around the edges right now as it is, it can definitely use some spice

noodlstudios responds:

this was only really made for fun, but I might improve it

EDIT: I fixed some of the things you requested.
