Under rating threshold (show) I've played this to death now and noticed a few things, hope this helps: Keep a slow pace! The platform 'spawns' are calculated based on your speed - meaning there will never be a platform that is unreachable at your current speed. Obviously if you hit a crate after the platform has spawned there's a chance you won't have the pace to make it but by keeping a low pace all the time you reduce that risk significantly. Crates near the start of a building give you a good chance to build speed back up before the next jump anyway, so hit them when possible - just avoid double crates. Don't jump further than you need to! If you aim to land on the first few centimetres of each platform you make windows and falling grinders much less of a problem. Grinders seem to fall exactly in the middle of their platforms, so by landing early you have a better chance of getting over them and back to solid ground in time for your next jump. <3 Canabalt!

Under rating threshold (show) In the distant future, aliens come to our planet, unseen. They started by slowly removing one bird species at a time. soon there was only one bird left. And soon they were replaced, replaced by what seemed to be a normal bird, but they were far from it. They were made to be the perfect spy. looking for humans. Soon the humans began to disappear and reappear... different, in just months there was but a single normal man left. And he knew it. He knew that they knew he knew their secret. And so it began, they hunt for the last human. the birds keeping watch over him, telling the aliens were to shoot the bombs. The aliens in their HUGE machines tearing the very earth apart looking for him! All he could do is run and so here you are, the last run of your life...... Good luck.

Under rating threshold (show) My FPS is jumping all over the place... I seem to be going from 60 to 0 in the course of a second. If I'm trying to jump at a low frame rate, it doesn't allow. It also seems that I can reset my frame rate, but only sometimes... someone besides me must be seeing this.

Under rating threshold (show) (POSSIBLE) TEMPORARY FIX FOR JUMP GLITCH (Firefox tested only): Bear with me here. When you see your character's framerate starting to look static-y, right click on the Flash screen to open the pop-up menu - but do NOT click into it. While the game is "paused" without actually being paused, click on the "+" button to open a new tab. Once the new tab is open, go back to the game tab by clicking on the tab itself on the top of the browser - your game should now actually be paused. Click back into the Flash game screen, and it should somehow stabilize the game. Worked three times in a row, got my 2K on the second try once I was actually able to jump. Please note I am merely trying to help the group of us who cannot get this game to function properly. I still believe the programmers need to look at this to find out what is going on, but at least this will allow people to get their badge if they can actually get to 2K within the intended mechanics of the game. -Dr. Rockface

Under rating threshold (show) Remember: if you GET A HIGH SCORE on Canabalt, be sure to PLAY AT LEAST ONE MORE TIME before you leave the webpage. Apparently the game only saves a high score once you've started another game, so if you just quit immediately after dying, then the high score you just made will be lost. This happened to me a couple times already. Of course, daily and weekly scores reset at the end of the day or the week, so unless you get an all time high your score won't last very long anyway.

Aliens/zombies/government machines/some asian country/hitler have been spotted 600 miles from his super never-ending city. He disregards this and puts on his best Michael Jackson outfit then off to work he goes. Later that day the expected happens...unholy crapstorm has erupted and he does what any idiot who played too many games would do...jumps out the f***ing window. This is how I want to die.
