    SurfN-2-Sur5 - Daniel X. Moore - 48 Hour Competition Entry

    You are an FBI agent. Your plane exploded. You must Surf to Survive. Escape the rocks and rogue waves... if you can.

    Tip: When starting out you're falling from the sky, wait until you hit the water to turn.

    Tip: In order to have a successful landing you need to be facing in the direction you're moving.

    Tip: Write down your longest time/distance and try to beat it (if you're into that).

    Awesome! reminds me a ton of the surfing section in california games.

    Simple graphics, but used to great effect. The music and sound effects are good, too.

    I really like the jump mechanic, but couldn't find any reason to actually use it (besides that I thought it was cool).

    You might want to consider rendering the current distance/time at the top of the screen, so that the player can see exactly how close they are to beating their previous score.

    Pretty cool, like Basilios I liked the jumping. Maybe if you had some sort of collectible people had to jump for it would be more motivation to risk the jump itself. Or just walls or rocks there is no other way around.

    I've had some framerate issues (drops here and there), but it's playable (this might be Firefox-only issue). I've made as far as 11821.98 meters, but with no jumping (which should be encouraged because it looks and feels cool!). Really nice game.

    I'm too tired to play this right now, i find it irritating that I can surf for less than a second then have to wait 4 seconds to try again. I promise to play and rate this later.

    A surfing FBI agent dodging rocks! This not only looks retro but acts retro. I could totally see this as having been a game title over 20 years ago :D

    I don't quite understand the landing rules, I guess it has something to do with the tide, because some I had different results just from the beginning.

    I had fun with this entry and the music was very fitting, which helped a lot to keep trying. Also, jumping looks really cool :-)

    I think the agent is roughly 20 meters tall. It's fun, and sometimes irregular jumps make it look like he's pulling tricks. I tend to build too much speed and height after about 3000 meters and eventually fall onto an unseen rock from high above.

    That's weird...usually, surfing games are supposed to be coooooool. This one isn't, it's pretty hard actually. anyway, I liked it.
