Climb!

Obviously inspired by:

Climb is a very simple platformer, with simple graphics, focusing on climbing My Word!
The goal is simply to get to the red flag on each level. Thats all. Nothing more, nothing less.

What it looked like:

Well, it's going pretty well. It actually seems like this is gonna be the first game ever I'm really finishing. Haven't changed the graphics much, but I've added a few elements that hopefully will make the game a little more interesting. I will probably be finished sometime tomorrow. Smiley

My oh my. That was ferociously hard. But I never wanted to blame the game for my constant dying. And I died a lot.

A nice little game, though I'm awful at these sorts of platformers.  I liked how you can do a little hop off climbing when you reached the top of a ledge after you acquire the skill, though I will still say I could have done without holding up performing repeated jumps.

The parts of the levels with small safe gaps between spikes are brutal.  >:

You should really change that jumping so that holding up doesn't make you jump constantly. That makes control more difficult than it should be. Also, move the jump button to something else, or give us an option. Up to jump also doesn't feel as good as having a separate button for it, especially since there's nothing else you can do.

Other than that the game looked and played pretty nicely. Like belbeeno mentioned, some of the pixel-perfect jumps were brutal, and I didn't get to finish the game.

Also, the blurriness of the screen didn't sit well with me. I think the game would have looked better with crisp pixels.

I liked the short and quick levels, the simple but stylish graphics and the twist when you get a new skill, as I didn't see that coming. Haven't finished it yet so I don't know if a save game feature is worthy or not.  Gentleman

I loved it! This is one of the hidden gems of this competition. The controls are nice and responsive. The levels are well constructed, and increase nicely in difficulty. Finishing the game was really satisfying. I didn't bother at all with the collectables, I have a personal dislike of coin collecting. I echo what the others have said about the jump. Having to use my move hand to also jump started to hurt towards the end. Spacebar jump would have been a relief.

Nice little platformer. The controls are okay, the graphics are neat. I particularly enjoyed the music, although it does get a bit repetitive.

Thank you guys! Grin I will make it possible to jump with another key. And I will also make it possible to disable repeated jumps. But since my school starts tomorrow and i've just got a new job, it will probably take a few days. Hopefully I'll be able to do it this weekend.

You should also think about giving each level a name. That way it makes it easier when discussing hints, tips, or how hard a particular level is with friends.
