Hey there. It's a good first step for the prototype. If you wish to imporve it the following aspects can be addressed:

Visual:
- improved "skinning" for the character and the environment. There are many cute asset packs around to get you started.
- animations on the character and preferably on the surrounding objects.
- some "juicing" will help - like dust clouds on landing, visual special effect on a coin grab, death etc.

Game Mechanics:
- progression could be faster. It's quite boring to wait while a coin is approaching me each time for a whole screen length.
- the jump height could be regulated by the time you hold a button. This way it would be much easier to grab tricky coins. Currently controls feel very rigid.

Keep it going!

Game idea is cool, but i think you should work on collision with spikes. I didnt touch spike, but it sait it is gameover

Thank you. I will admit that my collision detection is not great, but I will work on it.

It's a nice simple game. I like the fact that you control it with just a button.
Some issues:

1) The collision system needs improvements, but I see that you will work on it :)
2) If I lose, the number of coins is not resenting. I don't know if that's your intention or if it's a bug.
3) The score right now is the time. I would suggest to change it in the number of collected coins :)

Thank you! I will try to work on bugs, but soon, with score multipliers that you get by completing objectives, I don’t think score being coins would work. :)!

Sometimes what happens is, while I'm running it randomly says I died when I touch a spike. But, great game!

Yeah, I am on Mac, so I don't know why that is happening. You could see if any other Windows users are having his problem, and tell me the answers.

It could use some fancy new sprites.
I am still wondering what the yellow block is coming out of the right side of the screen. Further play is needed.
I personally don't like getting browser popups, id rather see it all in-game.
Not a bad start though. Keep up the good work.

Thank you! Actually, that yellow block is the sun, it was in the original and I forgot to delete it.

Hello,

a cool game idea.

Im missing some varation in the level. Also it is getting a little bit to slow harder. Maybe also the player animation looks like sliding not like running.

But good so far.

Movimentação do personagem ao pular poderia ter uma animação de erguer os braços e ao cair, dobrar as pernas, e o principal, quando correr, movimentar as pernas.
