Answer the Call of the Abyss!

What's at the bottom of the pit? Could be anything! Could be everything! I have to find out!

Press either button to jump into the pit.
Use left and right arrow keys or d-pad to drift during free fall.
Press either button to fire downward, launching yourself up!

Press the right arrow key in the main menu to see the credits.

The Pit!

How Not to Get Hurt

Do not run into blocks of dirt.
Do not run into the insectoid inhabitants of the Pit.
Do not let them spit acid on you.
Shoot both blocks and insects to destroy them.
Hug the sides of the pit to fall slower.

First thing I noticed, @MisterWizard01, is that you should be able to float a little up and down as well instead of just left and right.

I had one green shot come straight at me from the side and no way to dodge unless I went up or down.

Fantastic game. Super fun!
@dw817 - just fire to get an upwards boost :-)

@dw817 - @aced 's solution is the intended one. However, I was considering a downward/sideways dash ability...

Thank you both for playing! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Hi @MisterWizard01.

Ah, indeed. Yet after 631m I am not seeing the game get any more difficult. Nonetheless. An original and interesting premise to the old falling down the pit game.

Gold star work, clearly. :)

Neat! I like how vague and simple it is, but it still manages to have a cool concept.

P#120137 2022-11-05 00:33

I loved it, with a few more features it'd be amazing.

P#120235 2022-11-06 23:33

I love it. Just mak it harder and some more enemies
