The music from the trailer was dope.

Also, how much awesome can you fit into a single thread title?

Me neither. The game needs an awesome soundtrack - it feels barren and dull without one. It's a very difficult game to play, too.

Took me a while to wrap my head around the controls, but once you get the hang of it it's incredible. Looking forward to an inevitable iOS version.

I love the visual style, but... I dunno. Something about the weird physics and unusual control scheme just isn't clicking with me.

I hate floaty platforming games, and this falls under that category.

Too many times I floated straight into oblivion after performing a perfectly timed jump.

You don't reach your peak until way after you think you should. You get used to it after a few minutes.

I watched a video for it and my eyes couldn't handle the white flashes from those spherical pick ups (?). I don't really get queasy or motion sick from games, but it was starting to hurt my eyes for sure.

You have to hold the button to touch back down.

Pretty good. Especially with music that can match what's happening on the screen. (Pendulum - Imersion)

Finally a valid reason to install that Unity thing.

Why isn't Jeff Minter involved in projects like this?

edit. Game has some issues like painfully long deaths and lots of fail states, but it's cool for a browser game.

This game gives me a headache, so trippy. All the colours are such an overload lol.

Took me a while to figure out the controls. Also, I was surprised that it was running in Unity... I guess the lack of textures or anything prevents it from getting the "Unity look" (not that there's anything wrong with the "Unity look" of course... I kind of like it)

Game only displays white textures for me. Was still kind of fun to play.

The sound track works for what it is.

Going to try it on a better computer tomorrow.

what the fuuuuuuuuuu

That's definitely one of the cooler one-button automatic runners I've played. What a difference a change in perspective makes.


edit: Although the last one I played was Epic Coaster a couple months back, so with the amount of flash games made every week, I'm sure there have been, like, 20 new ones since then. :p

Add a somewhat special soundtrack, which makes half the experience especially for this kind of games, make it Universal (iPad HD e retina support) with Gamecenter for leaderboards and I'm on board with my wallet open.
