I agree..fun game. Just begs for a leaderboard!

Combos would be a good addition. At first, I thought you have to be close enough to kill the enemy, but later on found out you just need to "touch" the enemy. I guess I was thrown off since is monsters that move. Otherwise, I like the "simplicity" of the game of only needing to managing the platforming and one special power pickup.

Definitely enjoying this one too. And +1 on the leaderboards.
The controls are great, and it's a nice frantic arena-platformer with some interesting powerups.

Some ideas for additional content:
- extra "campaigns" of 10 levels
- randomly generated levels?
- endless mode of a single level, same 3 lives, but spikes continue to be generated without disappearing

Something else that would be kinda interesting... combos. Yeah, I'm a big combo/chain freak... if there was another mode, one that let you build up combos based on how many enemies you killed before taking damage... with the score going up and all that... maybe a survival mode or something... unlimited time, but no health, and you're dead after 3 hits or something... that would be awesome.

Anywho... thank you for making this free. I don't think I would have heard about it otherwise. =oD
I know right! SCB was brutal which made it less fun, but this really is on the high end with MK and Blast Ball! Blast Ball and this are probably my favorite ones as I don't like the crate theme much, scoring goals and running at enemies and launching power ups is much more fun

Wait a sec, while I get there is no GC, does the game even track one's best score locally?

Game Impressions

I like the game but wish there was something more of a survival mode where you are tasked with seeing how far you can get with 1 set of 3 lives. It could even use the same leveling system but lives wouldn't reset after each level up and once the lives are used up the game ends (no endless free continues).

Voted! I'd really like different maps though or a survival mode, cause now I'm gonna complete it for the 4th time and it's getting more boring bit by bit.

This got my vote too... I was choosing over this and Omegapixel, but omegapixel didnt make the cut, so that made the choice for me.
