Reviews for "Upwards"

I love the concept of a non-stoppable platformer, but there were a few issues that bothered me with the game. There is a bug where sometimes you die after killing any enemy because of their "magic pixel" hitbox. Also the spikes in the walls are very unforgiving. I was thinking if they could just be red lines instead of spikes because looking at all of the highscores, not alot of players reached up to stage 3 of the game.

The game becomes real difficult real fast. The idea to add the trail(and a BG which i didnt get time to finish up) was that a person would start remembering when to jump and how the enemy bounces are applied. This would have then led to player dodging bullets that would definitely be on the trajectory by just flipping in air. Timing is also necessary. An empty platform gives the idea of speed and time to plan a jump. Everything else is just reflexes( which is why i don't have a good enough score). Thank you for the feedback.

I like it but it's not very stimulating.

It is what you would expect out of an endless "runner" (platformer). However, there are a few issues I had with the game. The first was the means by which you would have to reset the game. The problem I had was that I was set up using two hands (on the a key and one on the spacebar). This meant that in order for me to reset i would have to move one of the two to pick up my mouse once again. This seems like a little gripe however when you look at the type of game this is the less down time between the runs the better. Maybe a hotkey to "R" would be great. Secondly, there were a couple of times that I would jump on an enemy and they would disappear but I would die in the process, nothing game breaking though, just a nuisance. Overall though not a bad game just a few tweaks would make it more enjoyable and have a longer replay value.

There is an option to restart. That too using the "R" key. Thanks for the feedback.

Your best game so far.

Only thing a player needs to be aware of is all the medals are off by one. "Kill 10 Red Enemies" will require killing 11 red enemies, "Die 50 times" will require dying 51 times, etc...

Doesn't really seem to be any major problems with the game or anything like that.

nitinkumar25195 responds:

Thank you for the kind words. They were supposed to say more than 50 times/more than 10 enemies and so on, but i forgot to change that.

Not bad ...

The game became sooo much easier when I've found out that I could kill them. Before that it was a task to get atleast 5 points.

Just a few things:

You can't press 'A' to restart, doesn't work
Medals show up in game but not when on the medal sreen after you reload the page
