Description

A clean, simple, run and jump style of game. Use the spikes to traverse your way through the stages and levels.

PLEASE READ BELOW!

Controls

  • Space to Jump and Start game
  • M to mute my lovely 17s loop (keep it on for a little bit, but I don't know how to make music)
  • 1/2 to dec or inc window size (defaults to 512x3 by 304x3, if your screen is too small, just hit 1)
  • Esc to exit
  • R to restart on final screen.

Notes

Please take two things into account (but don't be any less harsher in judging):

  • Level design in this was hard/long. It took about 1h20min to complete one level, because one level is actually 3 stages, with 3 zones for each stage.
  • I don't know how to make music. I had a bit more time during this jam than last time, so I'm proud of the amount of extra polish I got to do in comparison. I tried making a little loop, and it also gets affected by the subzone you are in. I'm a solo dev and artist here, focusing mostly on dev :)

Tools

  • GMS2
  • Aseprite (barely)
  • Random free pixel font I found online
