Super Bounce Back - by Jared Bailey

Hi All! I wanted to show my latest game, Super Bounce Back. It's a one touch, randomly generated, skill based, auto-bouncing, puzzle platformer, high score chaser where how you bounce determines how difficult it is to get back to the finish and how many points you can earn. If you tap to stomp there will be spikes and a small star waiting for you. If use some skill and bounce without tapping there will be a large star and no spikes waiting for you.

Each time you pass a level you get an increase in skill and a longer level. The longer level means more opportunities for points. If one level is just too hard then you can skip it, but you'll decrease one skill level. The reason I call it a puzzle platformer is just because you complete a level doesn't mean you'll get a high score. You have to bounce/not bounce strategically to extract the most points out of any given level.

There are a couple of different types of blocks. Grass block groups will produce stars and spikes. Blue blocks crumble. Yellow blocks speed things up. Purple blocks let you glide temporarily.

The mechanic is a little hard to describe but it should make sense when you see it in action. I think it's fairly unique/interesting and I hope you do to!

Skill Level 15


You play as a ninja and every couple of plays the level will change seasons. If the game does well I'd like to add some non-ninja characters.

Hi, I grabbed NRKTPRP7A4LY. There's a very solid mechanic at the heart of the game that flips the usual flappy one on its head. I also see the puzzle aspect of the game, which I find interesting, given the procedurally generated levels. I played to skill level 8 without facing an impossible level; clearly there's logic to prevent such an occurrence, but it would seems like one might be possible.

Thanks for the feedback and glad you like it! The whole time in development I've only come across one level that was impossible. The skip button should take care of the player getting stuck on an impossible level, although they will get unfairly knocked back a skill level.

Oh, added 3 new promo codes.
