You are a courier enlisted in the war effort.

The information you carry could spell disaster for your enemies...

But they're onto you.


With a labyrinthine gauntlet of machinery between you

and victory, your one and only mission is clear:

Get to da chopper.


An ode to classic NG stick figure games and a submission to List Jam. The two themes I chose were:

  • the visuals are monochromic
  • you control the entire game with just one button (no mouse)


HOW TO PLAY


You run automatically.

Press space or touch your screen to jump.

Press R to reset to the nearest checkpoint. (softlock deterrent)

Run into checkered walls while grounded to flip your direction.

Jump into checkered walls to wall jump off them.

fucking amazing

Nice it's great

Awesome level design and heart-pumpin' tune. Play this.

So cool!

Not bad at all. Game's a bit short, and I don't like the fact that the only way to restart entirely is to basically refresh the page.
