    Nice, but the movement speed is way too fast for comprehension. I died at the coin that is above the spikes because there's no way to time it.

    before reaching the spikes press jump as you have double jump :) so you can jump a second jump before reaching the spikes :)

    what should i do? i says 'don't touch the button', so this game is just me in a box? with a button?

    naah, just kidding :)

    i like the idea, but the movements are waaaay to fast. my double-jumps are nearly like *jump-just-above-the-ground-doublejump*

    I will try to make a better version and will take all these consideration in mind :) thnx for the feed back :) but I didnt understand the *jump-just-above-the-ground-doublejump* as double jump reach the ceiling and make u hit it while single jump not :) could u explain better for a better version in future :)

    Loved the graphics and idea of t he game zooming out as you hit the buttons, but the double jump has to be hit so quickly that it doesn't really seem like it boosts your jump much.

    thnx for the feedback :) about the double jump I designed everything based on the small fast double jump :) I know its hard but if you got familiar with it, you will pass the game :) will solve this problem in the future version :)

    The gravity is a bit brutal in this game, but I know thats intended :) Fun, simple game. I too have received a few 'too hard' comments, but I love difficulty in games. Always nice to see a fellow FlashPunk entry! Nice job

    very fun game, concept is brilliant
    but the gravity is much to high for my taste

    Thanks :) I will try to fix all issues in future versions :)

    I have to agree about the comments regarding the double-tap to double-jump. It just feels weird since it gives you almost zero control over timing. Also the creature moves just a little bit too fast for a game that requires this level of precision and control. Finally, while I think the gravity is ok, it should be reduced a little bit. People sort of expect earth-like gravity. It isn't all negative. I I really like the game otherwise though, its a pretty neat concept! I am also glad that you are going to take the time to make some of these changes! Thanks for taking the time to respond to all of the suggestions and comments!

    That's nice you like the concept :)

    Nice little game. I really enjoyed playing, but I think it would have been awesome if you just had polished the character-movement a bit. After playing your own game for 30+ hours, you don't always notice when movement is a bit fast/quirky.

    I could help! I had to touch the BUTTON!
    A couple of comments: I give you a good mark in innovation, I like so much the fact that when you touch the button the playing area grows.
    In the bad side is a little frustrating is so fast to control, I can't pass the level three and I assure you that I tried.
    Congratulations anyways!

    Thnx of the feedback :) I will try to finish an enhanced version where all these bugs are eliminated :) about how fast he falls and moves and small jumps :)

    Awesome concept!

    Nice game, the gravity is way too high though which makes it nearly impossible to get through the spikes. The "credits" splash after you die also takes a long time which makes it hard to replay as you have to wait.

    sorry for these errors :) will try to fix all these in new version :)

    I really love the scaling concept. Really can't get enough of it. I was sad when dying sends you all the way back to the beginning, would have liked save points.

    amidos2006 says ...
    May 3, 2012 @ 8:18am

    that's good point will take in consideration :)

    The zooming out was cool, I've only screen zooming in games so far, but I think just one life is way too harsh. Maybe 3 would do?

    amidos2006 says ...
    May 6, 2012 @ 4:42pm

    I will do save points in the enhanced version :) may be with infinite lives :) Thnx for considering :)

    Really good presentation and sound, really like the scaling effect which causes a natural ramp in difficulty. It is kind of brutal and perhaps would be kinder if you didn't have to totally restart on death, maybe a "prince of persia" rewind? Good stuff, thank you!

    The controls and movement were way too fast.
    I liked the expanding level, but couldnt get past the single spike on a ledge.

    amidos2006 says ...
    May 9, 2012 @ 10:04pm

    Thanks for the comments and trying the game out :) will enhance all these problems in the enhanced version :) of the game :)

    very fun! runs a bit fast tho, and could do with a instant restart after dying

    azurenimbus says ...

    So delicious to play. My kind of game. :)

    May 13, 2012 @ 8:58pm

    Haha, thats great. I like it. Great Idea of the zooming level.

    Nice game! But I'd have enjoyed it more if it restarted the level once dead instead of finishing.

    amidos2006 says ...
    May 13, 2012 @ 9:52pm

    thnx will fix that in the enhanced version :)

    This would be the last entry that I rate but I don't regret since it's fun!

    Brutally fast but luckily that's my kind of game! A shorter delay before starting a new game would make it more enjoyable. Great job.
