Just played it, loved it! and completed v1 all in 25 mins :) but very tough.
Then found 002 but like others, dont like the roll anim
Enjoyed it though, good job!

Very addictive! I've made it to Room 6 on the 002 version, I don't mind the difficulty at all since you've got unlimited tries. Going against the flow here, but I like the rolling animation.

Thanks for the positive feedback. Guess I need to add some new screens. :)

There's another update, 003 with the following changes:
  • Restored the old player sprite.
  • Added new 'first' room 'The Corkscrew'.
  • Swapped the order of 'The Ol' Switcheroo' and 'First Things First' rooms around.
  • Modified the spike jump in 'The Ol' Switcheroo' to try and make it a bit easier.
Download here.

Grrr . . . Now I have to play the whole thing through to Room 6 again. :twisted:

I think that's loads better..! The corkscrew seems to be a really good starter room to get you going. I've now managed the heady heights of screen 6, but my terrible finger reactions are letting me down.

Very nice game..!

Oh, Room 6 is Room 7 now. Hmm. Still can’t get out of the first switch well.

Completed version 003 from start to finish this morning. Got the record on all stages, though I had less than a second to spare on Room 7. Such a fun game, I thoroughly enjoyed this! Will there be any more rooms? :)

I think I found some unintended cheese in Room 7. You can skip the first switch entirely, it requires a rather pixel perfect jump though. I recorded an RZX of my last playthrough, you can see it in action here. :)

Thanks for the feedback and the .rzx file. It was very interesting to see your approach for the various screens. I'm back full time at work now, so progress on this and other projects will be a lot slower. I have added another room but I wanted to wait until I've gotten a couple more finished before doing another release.

I did wonder whether you could avoid having to trip the switch if you did some nifty jumping, so well done! I don't think I'll 'fix' that room. if you've got the chops to take the shortcut, then best of luck to you! :)

Dang it! That was pretty clever (the last room, I mean).
