Under rating threshold (show) Game is basic enough a level editor would be a great addition. Sequel suggestion: Add a 'more time' bonus icon to make levels more interesting.

Developer response from DamianSommer

Damn, the timer's actually an awesome suggestion I did not think of at all. It'd only take me 5 minutes to implement too! Thanks :) The level editor is harder to do, so probably not for this game. I've got another game I'll definitely have a level editor in though.

Mute's in now. The game's too small to warrant the time it'll take to put in a level select, sorry guys.

Under rating threshold (show) Guys, the rave is the last level. I didn't want to make anything outside of my engine, so I made the level impossible. You can do absolutely nothing but run left or right, so I figured people would get that the level's impossible :)

Under rating threshold (show) *Spoiler* For those who have made it to the CrossCrossCross, the triple jump will not work on the lonely square islands. If you look directly below our turtle friend, there should be a small ledge. This ledge is lightly higher than the highest lone square in the level. This should help alot

Under rating threshold (show) Remember that falling before jumping lets you jump further, but lower. On crosstrianglecross I suggest taking the speed up, then the clock, then the other jump. On crosscrosscross I suggest using two jumps to reach the last speed up and the last one to go back to the platform you last jumped, then proceding to the little ledge right under the target (and then going for the win).

Under rating threshold (show) Great game, and it has potential. All I would say is that you need more puzzle-like levels, and less "run back and forth" levels. Puzzle =/= the difficult ones either, those are just difficult because time. Also, if you cleaned up the UI a bit, made it more interesting/user-friendly, and added achievements (you already have a timer), this could be really great.

Under rating threshold (show) CrossCrossCross is not impossible. There are 2 things you need to realize to manage it: 1) As per my comment below, when altitude isn't a problem and you need to jump maximum distance, don't jump while still on the platform. Run off the platform, then jump. 2) As someone else pointed out below, there's a tiny ledge straight below the goal. After that, the rest is practice, timing, and fingerwork.

Under rating threshold (show) I do like this game, but later stages like crosstrianglecross are all but impossible for me to accomplish on a keyboard. When I press too many arrow keys at once my computer gets angry. The lack of a pause button is kind of irritating. I know I can just walk away, but letting the timer just count down over and over irks me.

My personal favourite part is when you have to fight the War Elephant by riding on the back of the Dragon Eagle. Glad you liked the unicorn part though. I put a lot of work into that.

Under rating threshold (show) Really fun game. Except for the part where the final level gave me an epileptic seizure. Bit my tongue off before it was over. Thankfully my dog rolled me over on my stomache before I drowned in my tongue-blood. Now I have to carry a little chalkboard around with me everywhere so I can communicate. Can I get a reimbursement for the chalkboard? Thanks.
