Thanks James, definitely not stopping just slowed down and been distracted by other projects. This is still getting done and have been implementing lots of tweaks so feeling better with the game.

Also got playtomic working and will upload a screenshot soon.

Heatmap is now working to track mouse press for Jump and Shoot. Bit useless for the online game version since the user generally uses the keyboard controls but was a good test to see how to incorporate it and use it in Flash for games. Also interesting to see the tracking of views and plays and what countries people are playing from.

Thanks Son of Bryce Smiley Definitely feels like I've come a long way since when I first posted about it. And thanks again for everyone who posted feedback, really helped motivate me to work on it and get it to where it currently is.

Just a few more things to work on and then it'll be ready for release. Now need to find some time to do those things.

Have changed all the fonts in game because the existing font didn't really fit in with the rest of the style of the game. Still not sure about this one either though, cause I'm so used to seeing the old one and liked it. Hoping it'll grow on me and I really hate dealing with fonts.

i played it before and i thought it was too hard(week ago or so).
i played it now and i thought it was too easy.

But there was something very satisfiying(sp?) in getting the "beat the game" screen although it was on my first try.

Maybe because the goal was always there right in front of you.

Thanks for the feedback bartholomew really interesting to hear that from someone who's just recently played it, after having been staring at it for over 6 months Smiley

Loved it, won on the second try. Anyways I died the first time because the opening cave seems to kill you if you touch the top?

Have now changed this so that when you now touch the top you just stop and fall again. Like this little change and definitely think it works better now. Thanks poe Gentleman

Also have updated the link on first post

One thing I've noticed is that it a bit annoying to play with the keyboard and then to switch to the mouse in order to press "Continue" after you die. The GUI / gameplay flow is seamless if you are playing using the mouse only.

I think it would be nice for people who prefer using the keyboard to be able to press Enter in order to continue playing. Making use of the keyboard in order to select Menu or Restart after you've run out of chances would improve the flow of gameplay as well.

A such, it's a small polish thing, but I think it'd improve the game subtly. Nice work for your first  Smiley

Thanks Gentleman Owl Smiley and yeah very good point with the menu navigation and other buttons. Hadn't really considered those things much because I still consider it as a game I'm making for mobile. So generally when I'm testing it's on my mobile or ipad. Always forget about the online usability. Great points though and think I'll definitely have to add a basic keyboard control for menus.

 Smiley thanks jamesprimate definitely should release it soon. Just been crazy busy with a new job, organising my wedding and training for a 100 km trailwalk for charity. But the walk I finished on saturday so hopefully I'll have a bit more free time.

Love the music you made for it so definitely want to release it so it can get more attention. You did an awesome job with it.

Might try and get it done next weekend if I get the chance.

Can't believe how long it's been since I've posted on this. Work, wedding and the rest have been crazier to deal with then expected. But now that the wedding has happened and I've been at the new job for awhile, I should have more time to organise things better. Really want to just finish this so I can move onto a new project. Especially since this was just meant to be a short learning experience for my first game.

Have been doing some code optimising which has really helped the speed and have also slightly changed the look of the rocks. They are now floating in the air instead.

Created a small game gif to show the change:

Not sure why it's not showing up for you Udderdude, I seem to have an issue nowadays where I can't see some peoples images either, although sometimes if I open them in a new tab they come up. Have added the option to click the image so it opens in new tab, hopefully that helps.

And thanks for the support caiys definitely helps with the motivation to get this finished Smiley Been following your game for awhile now so nice to hear.
