The mechanics work surprisingly well given the text graphics. It seemed hard to control at times, but I think that's a product of the text graphics. Perhaps it would help to slow it down a little? Do play my game and leave some comments!

So refreshing to play after 8 hours in the office using vim and bash! :-D

I played this a lot many times. Really enjoyed playing it. But when I could make better score simply jumping continuosly and keeping my right key pressed. Still great job. Do check our game too 😁

This threw me back to the early 90s. Very nice! It also seems rather hard. At some point I started frenzy jumping  and made it quite further ahead.

What is the target end distance?

Fascinating!
