It seems to me that the traps are randomly generated? Because in some area's, it's nearly impossible to pass through without taking damage. My video review:


Not bad, but I got way too good at dodging things too fast and it become a bit tiresome. Perhaps I needed somelike like making running *faster* after every loop to keep me on my toes? Good job!

The idea here is great--it takes the original comic and redesigns it to fit a a gameplay format.  I also love how the stickman "runs" to the beat (at least with song C and A--not as much in B).

As much as I usually enjoy randomization in games, I thought it hindered this one.  It created situations where I had to get damaged by something even if I didn't want to--it would have been cool to try and complete a track without taking damage, and I would've felt awesome doing it!  But in every track there was always more than one obstacle where I had to take damage.

Also, I like the idea that the head takes more damage than the limbs, as it adds a tactical element to the game, but players who don't read the description are going to have no clue why damage increases for them at points.

So overall, I enjoyed this.  I'm glad to see you plan to update it, as that would be good to see.  Nice job with this. :)


Very cool how you translated the essence of the comic into a gameplay mechanic. Would love to see this expanded with some slicker controls and animations.

I really liked this.  It's a neat concept and feel like it can be expanded so much further if you decide too and have some edits like only repeating 4 times, and new obstacles and levels in between randomly generated courses. Not much else to say liked the art the music and overall game good job!   Anyway one thing I do want to mention is I'm doing a review of design on the games in this jam so here's a shameless plug to my channel if you want to be notified of the vid when released:
