Probably repeating most of what others have said, but really nice, focused little game. The hit detection is a bit hard to judge, but having the horseman get closer and closer is a great touch.

Good entry, graphics and audio are simple, but matching. In my opinion collisions with obstacles are too sensitive, and game restart after fail is a little irritating. Anyway, well you went.

Really lovely graphics! I included your game in part 6 of my Public Domain Jam compilation video series, if you'd like to have a look :) youtu.be/vZb-MFQcT74

The horse animation was smoooth. It took me a couple of retries to get used to the collision boxes, but otherwise great game!

Nice animation, and bonus points for providing sound control. Felt a keen sense of dread as the horseman approached, that bridge couldn't come quick enough!


Good work. I like the feeling of dread and urgency as the horseman slooooowly catches up to you.

Awesome atmosphere.

Very nice audio and graphics :)

That horse animation is smooth.
