Join Squirt as he jumps and bounces in the sky through varying times of day, on his way to Cloud Land.


Z------------Small jump/bounce
X------------Regular jump/bounce
Z+X----------Super jump/bounce

A little while ago I uploaded my first game Cloud Bounce, an animated platformer designed to fit in 280 characters. I was happy with the basic gameplay, but in order to fit it in such a crazy small space, it was pretty bare-bones. The EX version is fundamentally the same game, and still tiny at just over 700 characters, but with a lot of important game features added, including:

  • Title screen
  • Lives system
  • Game over screen with restart
  • Checkpoints
  • Gameplay timer
  • An improved ending (the original was by necessity super abrupt)

It's still missing sound because I haven't figured out how to make music yet, and when I tried adding a basic jump sound without music, it got monotonous quick. The game's a simple and straightforward platformer with no enemies or in-depth mechanics besides reaching the end in good time, and I don't plan to really change that outside of making a sequel. I'd appreciate any feedback on ways I could make it better and more engaging within those limitations, though. Thanks.
