Directions

Up and down, W and S make you switch tracks. If you're on an edge track and try to move toward the wall, you slow down. (Up and W for the top track, Down and S for the bottom track.)

Your speed is your health. Switch tracks to speed up. Avoid slime and rockfalls, they'll slow you down and stop you!

Click "Exit" or hit the Escape key to end the program

How does your submission match the theme?

My submission matches the theme of "Dual Purpose Design" as follows:

Changing tracks changes your speed and helps you avoid obstacles

  • Movement keys change placement, increase speed when changing tracks, and reduce speed when pressing against a wall
  • Speed is both movement speed and a measure of health
  • Death penalizes you by making you restart the level, but benefits you by increasing your initial speed
