Lava Rise is a vertical platformer with a good purpose of saving dinosaurs!


You play as Dino who is the last dinosaur alive and you need to help him escape the rising lava as well as other weird looking monsters in order to avoid getting extinct.

Key Features:

  • Fun and challenging gameplay
  • Good environment and look
  • Familiar with games you probably know

This is my first major project used for learning purposes so please tell me what you think and what should be added for better experience, can't wait for your feedback!

Nice jumper

This here was a fun and nice jumping game not too easy to get to that 5 thousand, but still fun the jumping mechanic is very smooth and some smooth sound/FX you can see it in the gameplay the depth and the search for the end and that right there makes for a good detailed and fun Game and thats what you have done here the game itself has some good depth and some nice replay value too. So props to you for a fun filled game the gameplay was really fun, Fun and cute jumper game here


It's got some bad lag and/or micro pauses every few seconds. It's probably something you're doing in a loop. It really disrupts the flow of the game and concentration.

Sorry for the inconvenience, I'll try to detect the problem and fix it as soon as possible!

I really like the game. Simple concept, nice music.

BuzzGame responds:

So glad you enjoyed it

You should listen to people saying that the "random disappear glitch" is caused by the game and not by any browser. If the game is properly coded such a thing should not happen. I entered the game, did not switch any windows/tabs, yet every 2-3 games my dino just disappears or teleports to the left or right border of the screen just by touching a platform above. It can even happen that I just begin a new game, dino makes ONE jump and after touching the next platform just vanishes.

BuzzGame responds:

Finally after digging a lot I think I found the bug and tackled it so it would be great if you can verify that the glitch is no longer there,

I really listen to each review but the thing with this bug is that I didn't encounter it myself so it makes it so hard to identify the problem and develop a solution for it.

The game has a lot of ways it could improve, but in it's current state, it leaves a lot to be desired.
First things first, get rid of a certain annoying bug. Seemingly randomly, you will be teleported off-screen. This is annoying as all hell and I hope it gets fixed ASAP.
Second, try to find some people to work with. As of now, it looks like it was a bunch of assets thrown together into a game, with a mixture of clashing artstyles. These people could also give inside feedback for ideas as they come out and maybe give you their own ideas.
And this is something I'm not 100% sure on, but I think you could change the enemies and environment to be a bit more varied. Some platforms could be bigger while some could be smaller. Some enemies could move across platforms and some could be taller.
I may be a bit too harsh, considering how you stated this is for learning purposes, but this is how I feel towards the game. I hope you can take this into account for either updating this game or working on new projects.

BuzzGame responds:

Thanks a lot for your constructive feedback, I think the random teleport glitch has something to do with switching tabs on your browser (browser related). I'm willing to add more variety in the near future
