Black And Red
By SuperCasey4


Hey everyone, this is my latest game. The concept is pretty simple: the floor is falling out from behind you so run for your life. It gets more complicated when you add in a grappling hook and a glider. The levels get progressively more challenging and can get pretty difficult later in the game. Also, this was made for the "This Game is Art" competition at Game Maker Games.

The controls are arrows move, up jumps (you can double jump), and Z shoots a grappling hook.

Click Here to Play!

Here is a screen (looks better in motion):

neat graphics. a better character design and animations, and then some serious aa and a better fading effect (not exactly sure how to do so, maybe a gradient on each block instead of just fading normal) would make it a lot better. also, I'd add slopes on the platforms.

I couldn't get passed the second level. the long gap where you have to double jump and use the hook really murdered me, I couldn't figure it out.

I don't like how the grappling hook only goes a certain direction and only lasts a few seconds.

I realized that I can use the grapppling hook more than once per jump. I beat it too.
Also, I decompiled (not stealing anything-just showing you something) and edited the background effect to do this:

Cool, I guess I should add in some anti-aliasing but I don't think its all that noticeable while the game is in motion.

Very well done. But as already said. Antialiasing and better fading could make it better.

Also, it would be interesting to see some other "vehicles" than just the plane.

Thanks! But is the non-anti-aliasing really that noticeable? I mean it is really noticeable in the screenshot but I didn't really think it showed up in the game due to the speed of everything. I might still add some more levels but I don't what vehicles I would add, I was considering adding a parachute with a vertical level but I don't really know if that would fit with the game, and it would probably be pretty similar to the glider except vertical.

Lol - it is easy if you rapidly press the jump, grpling hook and move keys and such. :P

It is kinda cheating :P
