Help Jack to escape from the volcano where he is trapped in this fast, hand-crafted, 2d platformer.

Post news Report RSS Devlog: Slide and new backgrounds

We are designing new game mechanics and also working on new backgrounds.

Posted by on

Surviving in the volcano becomes an increasingly difficult task as you complete the levels, so we decided
to teach Jack a new move: the slide.

slide01

Using the down arrow plus jump combination, Jack will start to slide, decreasing his collision box and moving a short distance before stopping.
This game mechanic is useful both for passing in otherwise inaccessible passages and for dodging dangers inside narrow tunnels.

slide02

But beware, Jack is not invincible during the skill and a badly calculated slip can lead to his death.

slide03

We are also working on new game stages, here you can see Jack intent on saving himself as he approaches the top of the volcano.
