Hello everyone! This is my second game, Underground. Though it looks very much like Jumper or Jumper 2, I wrote all the code etc. myself, and It was not easy, so please don't say its a Jumper clone.

The story:

Once, a news reporter was reporting near a volcano. Then suddenly, it erupted, and everything, including the reporter, was buried. After a day, the news reporter wakes up to find himself in a place like none before, the .. Underground. He has to escape

The screens:

The download :D :

Underground Demo

This is a very early demo, so it doesn't contain a menu and all that fancy stuff. Also, I know that the sprites of the reporter are really ugly, so if you can make me some you are welcome. Feedback is extremely welcome. I'll be going on vacation for some time, so don't excpect another demo soon :D .

The graphics are great, I liked the lava and geysers, except for the reporter, and like you said, he needs a new sprite. There were so many geysers on level 3 they slowed me down to about 15 FPS so I didnt bother trying to pass the level.
And, you can jump while holding a rock. Just jump first and quickly press the P button to grab the rock.

Yeah, I know, I'm going to try requesting at GRG!

Don't worry about that, I won't be putting that level in the full version.

Hummm,

what can you reply to: "You died!"?

It could be fun to answer yes or no!

Seriously, it's a great game and there's a little bug,

When you're in midair, if you press the oposite arow you are looking at, the sprite will not changes...

Lol, thats just in the demo, I won't be leaving it in the full version, I'll put some thing more professional.

OK, I fixed it, check the first post for the new version.

I didn't think this was much like jumper. I liked it but I couldn't make the jump at the end of the level that introduces lava pools.

Your alpha-increasing screen when your dead is good nut rather annoying...

When you die many times in the beggining of the level, it's boring to wait 10 seconds... And, especially, when your in the third level, with the X geyser, it takes 20 seconds!
