Planet Run

Hey everyone!

I've been teaching myself how to code and use the program Unity to make a game for the last two months and would love if you could check it out.

In its most basic form, my game is a 'line runner' where the main objective is to get a highscore and submit it to the leaderboards. Where I made a little twist is that you are on a planet that has a blue orbit or atmosphere above it. Now the jumping of the character increases over time and when you jump out of the orbit of the planet you are instantly transported to a new, bigger planet. I think it is a very nice change of scenery and every new planet has a different feel and gravity so the controls change a bit each time.

Check it out and give me plenty of feedback. I should add that jumping is purposely set up on jump when released, which, after testing, made it better for the timing of each jump.
