Run and jump

Play the LATEST VERSION here.

Here is a little running game I made this week, it’s a one button game. I came across a cool game called Fotonica and thought I would make a similar using the same control (only space). I wanted the character to be a female and get a bit of the feel from Mirrors Edge (so far I only managed to add some female sounds).

The 10 levels are randomly generated and not tweaked at all, some might not be finishable? If you finish a level you will snap to the start again.

Anyways, try it here: (no loader, you may have to wait a while)

Runner has moved to here.

Music by 7OOP3D song called Triggernometry (instrumental version)

If I continue with this game I will probably make the track twist and bend, just like in the olden c64 Stunt Car Racer which I used to play a lot when I was young. But I thought I would start simple just making a forward track where segments differs in height. Also I might bring in some Tiny Wings action, timing landings with downhills to get more speed.

    Quite nice. The timing takes a while to get right. I think the game is too dark, though.
    I loved the Stunt Car Racer game on C64 – I played that so much. πŸ™‚
    Keep working.
    Take care,
    Alex.

    • Whats with the green and white object with the blue arrow where your feet should be?

    • y u no tell me how to download?!?!?!?

    Wow.
    This game, despite sounding so simple, is actually a lot of fun. However, the long wait to play is soo long. My advice to anyone is to just wait it out and have fun1

  • wait, so how do I start?

  • Very nice game, i loved it πŸ˜€

  • Lol. This cracks me up, Jon. I like how you used the blocks around the character as an equalizer for the music. πŸ™‚ It actually turned out quite difficult!

  • Epic Game

  • Very addictive πŸ™‚

  • l kind of like it but why is the camera pointing down on the legs?

  • Very nice, Ive played through it several times.

  • loving it..can see it getting fairly addictive. especially if you develop the twisting track and downhill speed ups!

    • Thanks!

    This is so fun!!! Simple, but with a ton of potential! I really hope you chose to continue with this idea!

    • Thanks, that is encouraging!!!

    me gusta.

  • I think you forgot something….. where is the game???

  • Wait, does backspace key make you float in the air longer O_o? H4X0R πŸ˜›

  • Nope, not holding space makes you float in air Pinkamena ;]

  • Love it! πŸ™‚

  • Great idea for a game. I bet it will be more fun with designed levels. The random generator made some impossible areas…

    • Thanks. I was afraid of that and yes they are probably pretty repetitive. If I continue with this I will either design them or make the track generator more interesting.

    simple and fun!

    • No, he said he LIKED it so he made a game LIKE it.

    Fun stuff!

    And you just HAD to show a screenshot that brings back so many memories too.

  • Really fun. I sucked really bad at first, but once I got the hang of it, I was flying 8^)

  • Nice! As it is, markers that show you’re almost at an edge and it would already be super fun!

  • Awesome game, love to play it once it gets more advanced. Very addicting

  • Fun! I got frustrated with the camera (it kept locking on my feet after I landed, making it hard to see the next jump), but I had fun anyway!

    • Thanks. Yes that is a bug I’m trying to fix it now!

    I hate this stupid game! It keep beating me!! <3 u

  • Wow… This is fun!

  • Wow…

    This is such a GREAT game… So simple yet so enticing…

    This needs a score system…

  • reminds me of mirror’s edge in a way

  • I could see this as an iPhone or Android app.

  • Kind of reminds me of Skyroads πŸ˜€

    • Yeah, specially that crazy level where the gravity was soooo weak πŸ˜€
      I feel very nostalgic every time I remember Skyroads πŸ™‚

    I jump from the second platform straight to the 5th it’s ridiculous how far you can come

  • You should have it display current and best distances! πŸ˜€

  • Nice concept, the moon gravity makes it unplayable though…

  • Great little game!!!
    Lags quite a bit though :/

  • I liked it.

  • Amazing!! the bars on the sides are actually visualizations of any music coming from your speakers, including the in-game music and any other music you’re listening to.

  • Would it be possible to have PC’s sound used instead of the default music? i’d love to play and have it run along side itunes for example(no pun intended).

  • how do you start?

  • I like the game very much – so simple, yet so addictive. And I actually like the way you look down, when landing hard – it’s like when landing hard in real life :-). The game will be too easy, if you can see straight ahead all the time :). But maybe tweek the landing, so when landig really hard you look down, but in small jumps you just look forward? πŸ™‚

  • Is it possible to actually play this game?

  • Hello there ditt snillus.
    Snart kanske huvudet ditt blir ΓΆverfullt av finurlig kod.
    Se upp!
    By the way, I’m terrible at this game. FΓ₯r ΓΆva lite I think.
    Ha det bra i grodΓ€tarlandet.

    • Tack andreas, vi har det bra i frankrike, lite kallt dock. Yes the game turned out pretty hard will make some easier levels later. Hoppasas allt Γ€r bra i boden!

    How do i start the game?
    im using google chrome, if thats important

  • Amazing game, although I must say that due to the close quarter turning jumps, level 7 seems harder than 9.

  • Nice, Such a good idea made out of something simple and quick. Not much coding. Something Small Made Into Something Big.
    Hope Thats Understandable/Came out the way i wanted to say that πŸ˜›

  • I liked the game πŸ™‚
    Some Textures some more lvls , pointsystem and it would a realy nice game πŸ™‚

  • It’s a great game and definitely has a lot of potential, itd be nice for a button to mute the music even though its not that loud

  • Frikkin amazing… The concept is so simple yet so fun.. I love how difficult the timing is and the music is great. Btw in case anyone doesnt know, To start you just press 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, or 9. Great game though hope he goes through with it all the way and fleshes it out and it gets released.

  • the breathing sound effect is a nice touch that i have not seen in similar games

  • how to start game have just a picture

  • Why dont do a iOS, Android Edition?

  • Love this even downloaded the swf file off the page, keep up the good work thanks I wish this game was longer and had more levels. Can you please keep programing this its so fun to play makes me fell like Sonic the hedgehog/Mario with the running and jumping.

    only one key; I like the buttons. space run, space jump.

    helpful hint space make gravity pull you down to the platform.

    after a finishing a level keep holding the space bar you start the level with more speed.

  • This is addictive, though controls are totaly frustrating.

  • Exactly the same great mixture of awesome and frustration as Stunt Car Racer, i absolutely love it.
    Please make it a full game, but don’t mess too much with the graphics… just like SCR this is a game that is probably better off minimalistic.

  • ok I don’t get the long jumps part where you jump in the nearest hill I mean it dosent make any sence

    • I know, the tutorial part is really bad. Try jumping in the uphill then land in the downhill while holding space – this will give you more speed!
