Hmmm... Couldn't really get into it because when you're moving the jump button becomes unresponsive...

But thanks for the freebie... =o/

LOL!

Yes the buttons become unresponsive especially when moving and beyond that a platform raised me up into a platform and my character got stuck (in mid-air). I could turn (by my body didn't move) so then I was shooting out of my back.

Hi,

I've been made aware of this thread.
Sorry about the bugs and control problems, i've taken some time to fix most of it.
So with the new version the direction controls are smoother, and you probably won't get your head stuck in a platform anymore

Don't hesitate to post if you have any comment.

Thanks!

(also i'm actually planning to make another update in a few days. so the game will run just as smoothly on older devices.
When testing on a 3GS, the game is playable, but a bit slow, i've just found the cause and will fix it too. )

As for any game, I recommend putting a user-created level sharing feature.

This would work like this;

- First, Create the platforms. Form the level, and plan where to place other things.
- Then, Place things such as enemies and Bosses, powerups and other items, etc. (I haven't played the game yet, so I'm not sure what is actually in the game)

The art looks very well-done, thanks for the freebie.

The graphics are pretty decent. However the game is a little lacking in terms of gameplay. Didnt remember if there was background music.

I guess it is ok being free and all, but it lacks the polish that the leading platform titles carry.
