You should die when u miss the platform and have your stick in the hole. "That what she said." Also, it should have a sprint button that recharges the better your vaulting is timed. You should barely make it if you time it wrong and lose energy or something. A good timing would be pressing the sprint button halfway the platform as not to waste too much energy, than press it so your pole is as close to the edge as possible. You are welcome and I'm stoned. When you have two perfect timed jumps in a row you should skip 1 platform (read jump over it). When you have 5 perfectly timed jumps you skip 2 platforms etc, after ten perfectly timed jumps you pole is supercharged and you can lock in a first multiplier that can't be lost ever, permanent gift as you will. Okay I have to stop rambling now, thank you for reading.

I typically love most games by Nitrome (Gunbrick, Icebreaker, Green Ninja, Silly Sausage, and Magic Touch) but not this one. It is just another mediocre endless runner.

What's it based off of? I think it's called kidney bean in Paris or something?

Unique endless runner that needs something...more. Maybe powerups and better unlockables but not too bad.

Nice post, Samulaan. I had "no idea what was going on" there though

I like this quite a bit, and supported Nitrome with the ad removal IAP, as I do with all of their games.

I do pretty well until there are multiple narrow platforms in a row, or the part where there are three of those red balloon thingies stacked up.

You can change the trajectory of your character depending on when you release the screen. For example, if your dude is vertical with the pole, you won't go as far. To get more distance, release later in the vault.
