Get ready to run!

Presenting my very first ever Java4K submission. Jump over chasms while running at break neck speeds. Collect carrots for points (yes, those orange and green triangles are supposed to be carrots!). Collect speed boost orbs for bonus points and to go at even more uncontrollable speeds. Do you think you can avoid splatting into the canyon walls?


W to jump up
SPACE to start game

Tip: Look before you leap! Jump early when getting onto a lower ledge. Jump late to get onto a higher ledge.

You die if you touch the top of the screen?

Fixed the bug that caused the game to lag as the level proceeds and added 2 more levels.

Wow! It's addicting... Played it for 3 hrs before commenting. Will you release source code? I was eager to look at it!

Added Speed Boost powerup. And posted the scource code. Game is now functionally complete. May just try to add some sound effects.

Noticed a small bug. The text `Level:01` appears as `Level:)1`. : and 0 are drawn at same position

That bug does not show up in Linux. I added more spacing so hopefully it's now fixed.
