Feels really well done and the music is perfect for the game.  I got the bug where you keep going to the left a couple times and it takes a little too long to get back up for me.  Overall great concept and great execution!


ROCKING sound track. It really sets the right tone for some adrenaline-pumping action. The pixel art is very good, too.

One issue I had is that the player falls too easily and takes too long to get up--it interrupts the action too much.


Really fun game and I enjoyed it a lot but there's a bug after you get up that makes you keep running in the direction that you were running before you fell.


I had 14 books, 4 in my hand with 25 seconds left, but my momentum hit the teacher and I was done. That was a close one!

It's good that there is a penalty when you hit the wall, but it forces you to wait, which slows down the tempo a bit.

How about simply having a 5-second penalty that is immediately deducted from the remaining time?

Another idea would be to have the books you are holding scattered around you and you would have to pick them up.


Nice game. :-)


Crazy Taxi! I really enjoyed the theme, and running around was fun, although there might have been too many obstacles. I wanted some more wide open areas to really tear through and pick up speed.


Thank you for playing! When I started playtesting I was really reminded of crazy taxi, and then it started to influence the rest of the game (especially the punk rock music choice). I'll try to toy with the spawn rates a bit more after the jam, I've realized that there are a couple spots where it gets pretty crowded and a bit unfair. Thank you for the feedback!


9 books. My only improvement would have been to slow down the character a little.


10 books, but I kept getting suspended- too much need for that sweet speed :)

Good fun!


I picked up 15 books, the weight meter was coming off the bar xd.

It's fun, ironically controlling the character is a bit easier with a couple of books, By the way, what songs did you use? love them XD


They are by Three Irma & Louise, from their albums Dry Bones and White Hell.


12 books ! It's really fun, there is a  bit of a learning curve i like that. I would have just made the down time a little shorter, it really feels like a punishment each time, other than that, favorite game of the jam so far !


Thank you so much!


The graphics are THICC! Nice Work! :)


Nice look and feel, the slipping was a bit too much as it got me trapped in areas. Other than that its great!
