App description: Upthing can't go left, Upthing can't go right, Upthing can only go UP!

Guide Upthing through a never-ending gauntlet filled with spikes, monsters, and moving platforms. How far can you get? How long can you keep Upthing alive? Sometimes you have to be patient, sometimes you have to rush, but you always, always have to plan your next move ahead.

Upthing is a brand new arcade experience from Sets and Settings, the studio that brought you IRRUPT, SUPERHYPER, ULTRAHYPER, and ESFLC. Mixing the typically fast-paced flow of score chasing games with a more tactical, almost puzzle-like approach, Upthing aims to keep you coming back for more.


- Crisp pixel art
- Challenging, randomly generated content
- Endless replayability
- Banging soundtrack, made up of sort-of-but-not-really-chiptunes
- TWO leaderboards- One for those taking advantage of their continues, and one for the hardcore!

Enjoy Upthing! <3

While the game is fun, there's a quite annoying bug while playing. On many occasions, Up Thing doesn't land on platforms, but passes through it if you try to jump onto an outer edge. This is kind of cheap considering how small the platforms get later on.

Any way to adjust the safe areas on the platforms?
