My favourite NG game
This is probably my favourite game on newgrounds! I keep coming back to see if I can beat my old time. Great gameplay! I agree with a previous reviewer, SoulOfDarkness, I'd love to see the addition of an insane challenge like collect all gems, not die AND complete it in less than in 400 secs. That would seal the deal for replayability.
It's very well programmed. I've played this game loads of times and not once have I come across a bug. Unlike some other people I liked the looseness of the controls the way they were. It created the right amount of challenge.
The music and sound effects were decent, they didn't get annoying. The sfx matched the graphics style.
I'm guessing the springboards were inspired by sonic, no bad thing there.
I think the best aspect for me was the difficulty level. Trying to finish the game without dying was definitely hard enough to make it a challenge, but not too hard that it was impossible.
The only thing I can criticise is the behaviour of the spike hazards. I can see, in an effort to make them more realistic, that you made it so the sides of them would not be harmful, only the tops of them would. However, if one stands against them and jumps up, it will cause death while jumping upwards. Only a small detail, but could use a bit of tweaking. Still better than the standard spike attribute of 'touching any part of them will cause death.'
Overall - excellent game. Well done man, all my 5 r B-long 2 joo!
I even made a guide for it (might need to remove spaces in URL):
