    Moving Day - SeanAtr0n - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    Your best friend is moving away tonight, so sad. You already feel so alone... like really alone... perhaps insanely alone. Hey, is that your friend? I bet you can catch them!

    Whew, I had to cut quite a few things (including animating the player's arms, who needs arms...) but managed to finish in time.

    This is my first flash game, I started learning flash this week and it has been a lot of fun. (This is also the most 'complete' game I've worked on so far, Thanks for the motivation!) I'll probably continue working on it a bit more to explore Flixel and to see if this gliding mechanic would be fun with better planned obstacles.

    Note: This game includes the mandatory kitten! (vote for meee!)

    Controls: Mouse movement controls pitch while gliding, click to Jump. Escape to reset the game. The cursor isn't loaded at first but you can still click play. (the button will light up when you are over it)

    Gameplay Note: You can jump higher by pulling up with the mouse, but you will be sacrificing run speed. You can regain some run-speed if you dive mid-jump.

    I went running so fast that I left my friend behind! haa
    And that was the last time I saw him.
    A simple yet funny game. :)

    Neat game, but even though I managed to beat it im still not entirely sure how it works!

    I ran, died, and was eaten by a cat. I, too, was disappointed by the feedback to my responses :P

    Thanks for playing! I'm not intentionally trying to screw with the player in the end, I just ran out of time to implement a scoring system or some sort of positive feedback :P

    Interesting game, I love runners. The kitten in the end was a bit creepy though.

    Why did you scrap your original psychedelic graphics (from the blog), those looked more interesting :-)

    Some suggestions:
    * The obstacle course seems completely random - at least one time I got a run that was completely devoid of obstacles past the first two - you might want to tweak that.

    * I ran past my friend, woooosh!

    * After a time, the background starts to flicker. I wonder if this is intentional, but it sure does look like a glitch.

    Thanks for the game!

    It looks like a canabalt-like game; funny, but not that innovative. Also, the cat when one lose doesn't fit at all and looks stupid, frankly. The music is OK but it would be better if it looped.

    Whenever I play, there are mounds of mailboxes right at the start that I can't jump over because I'm going slow. There is no way to build up speed, so I can never manage to catch up to my friends.
