Under rating threshold (show) Hey maybe you could diverisify the regions, like make one of the regions over the water...you know, just for effect and interest. wouldn't it be cool if your wingtip like dipped in the water whenever you turned?

Under rating threshold (show) Good lord, the pace is maddening and I like it. Blinking is sometimes a luxury I cannot afford while playing. I rather enjoy the stripped down, geometric graphics and the use of light and shadow is great. The sense of urgency ramps up as the sun dips toward the horizon and the shadows from the pillars get longer and more ominous. The series of goals to work toward for unlocking new power ups keeps me going for "just one more turn" too. As a critique, could Tris be made more visible? They're hard to spot from a distance and it's difficult enough to concentrate on the terrain without being dashed against the rocks.

Thanks for your feedback - our most recent update makes Tris more visible, and slightly easier to grab.

Under rating threshold (show) Amassing a bunch of Jump power ups and using them all at once should unlock some kind of secret easter egg in space.

Under rating threshold (show) It has the same mad rythm and feeling of doom as Canabalt. I don't know why I'm rushing towards the sun, but it sure as hell feels good. Great work there.

Under rating threshold (show) @Erikleker: The bonus multiplier is unlocked once you've reached the maximum level. Complete the daily objective to unlock a 5% bonus for the day. Also, to get the 150 tris objective, try using the Magnet ability :)

Under rating threshold (show) Get 80,000 in one round - then get 100,000 in one round - then get 130,000 in one round...... If we have to get those amounts of points each separately, then either make the "player level 6" medium badge a hard badge, or make it so the the higher amount of required points next level is for the total so far overall like the total tri count overall.

Under rating threshold (show) Sometimes the game starts, and the flyer is moving at less than half speed, right out of the gate. It's kinda annoying, resetting the game usually works.

Under rating threshold (show) I only have one complaint on this (and I'm not sure if it's just with me), that this game faces the problem of others with objective/achievement systems face too. Suppose you're on a good roll, and you're on lvl 1, and manage to get, let's say, 100k points. Why do you need to do that again for lvl 2 and 3? I've proven I've done it. A variable to save your highscore at something could be really easy. It feels frustrating when you level up after a really good run and you have an objective you just beat. It's a great game tho. 4/5

Developer response from Flippfly

Thanks for the feedback. We're thinking about this problem and how to solve it. In the future, we may make each objective seem more fresh and unique.

Under rating threshold (show) I was hoping my 300k long run after reaching level 2 would unlock all sorts of levels... but that was wishful thinking it seems. "Leveling up" via specific achievements one at a time only hinders the actual player when he/she has to do it again.

Under rating threshold (show) This game is so hard! Probably the hardest easy badge ever. Over 100 plays and the most I can get is 26. I don't understand how people can get 80,000 points in a single round. I barely get 20,000.

Under rating threshold (show) Loosing all your multiplier for jsut scratching an obstacle is quite unforgiving when leveling. It should reduce it by one not reset it it to one.

Under rating threshold (show) Leveling up takes too long. Getting to the next level isn't exciting if it takes a while. Specific goals and an unknown bonus for leveling up are a bit harsh. Giving 5 tasks and only needing 4/5 to progress would be good. Giving up for now as sick of being stuck.

Under rating threshold (show) @Desincarnage, you are rushing towards the sun because it is your power source and you will crash and die in the middle of nowhere if you don't travel far enough

Under rating threshold (show) I bought this game on PS4 before I found it on Kong. I must say, it's awesome on both, albeit a tad more controllable with a controller

Under rating threshold (show) Ever since the game's multiplier system has changed, getting the achievements have been ridiculously difficult. Before I can get the jump powerup I need to get 80,000 points but it takes as much effort to get those 80,000 points as it used to take to get 250,000 points before the game the changed.

Under rating threshold (show) A time reverse power-up was directly above one of those very small obstacles. Naturally I went for the glowing yellow, not seeing the obstacle until it was too late. You evil developers you. Great game though, 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) I really like the style of this game. It's slick and smooth but far too hard. The "Easy" badge is far from easy. Unfortunately it has no longevity for me because it's just far too frustrating. There needs to be an easier option so you can actually make some progress into the game beyond the first minute or so.

Under rating threshold (show) Graphics are really great, I like this idea of 'beautiful minimalism'. Extremely high speed makes me put all my skills to use, and that's what I like in games. I'd like to see a little more diversity in terms of pickups maybe. 5/5.

Under rating threshold (show) Fullscreen and/or any sort of Gamma setting would be appreciated. The graphic style and lack of contrast are a part of the challenge of the game, but the default lighting profile can't take all monitor profiles and ambient light conditions into consideration.

Under rating threshold (show) Hey guys! On windows, in the lower right hand corner, click the volume control for your computer, then click "mixer." This allows you to mute your browser (with the game) without muting itunes/whatever. Or you can open youtube in one browser and the game in a second browser, and mute the browser with the game but not the one with youtube. There, now you can listen to music and mute any game, without worrying about whether the game has a mute button. Now stop complaining about there not being mute buttons and start playing! Oh, and sorry mac users, there is probably a way to mute any game on a mac, but I don't know how.

We will be adding mute controls in our first update, but this is a great workaround. Thanks for sharing!

Under rating threshold (show) the multi-jump power seems pretty worthless compared to the magnet... At least remove the 5 jump cap, but I think it should maybe increase the spawn rate too or instead or something.

Hi, the music doesn't have a names yet, but was composed by Forest exclusively for the game. If you'd like to be able to get it in soundtrack form along with the rest of the music for the game when it's finished, check out our store here: http://flippfly.com/store/ Thanks for playing!
