Made it 356 miles.   This is awesome, a great mash-up of two throwbacks!  Nice work!

Nice! You beat my own record :)
Thanks for the feedback, this is really encouraging!

This one took me back which I guess was the point. I wish there was some kind of way to get some ammo back, but other than that I really enjoyed this game.

Thank you :) that's good to hear.
Actually, you can get some more ammo by visiting the tent, provided you are all 'full health'. I suppose now in retrospect that this might be a bit too harsh, and it would have been better if the Chief gave our bullets regardless.
As soon as the jam is over I'll see if I can improve the game based on all the comments :) Thanks for the feedback!

Love the retro style, very authentic. Game was a little too difficult, felt at times that some rocks were unavoidable.

Thanks :)
I am sorry, and you are right. I should have invested more time into beta-testing and adjusting difficulty... but I ran out of time :(

Nice, you nailed the look/feel of those early games!

Developer

Thank you very much! I'm really happy to hear that :)

Wow, what a clever idea and excellent implementation. So much great nostalgia rolled up into a fun and easy to play game.
