Butterscotch ShenaniJam 2018: Press Space To Stick

“Press Space To Stick” by Francis Vace.

“You gotta climb the tower of [j]ustice, but there’s only one thing you can control, you press space to stick.”

Oh, that’s just great.. First, Francis Vace created one of the toughest runner games ever made in a jam, and now he has come up with an outstandingly difficult, but incredibly motivating platformer. Accompanied by fantastic chiptune sounds and classic Game Boy art, you must move the character to the top of a tower. There is only one problem: You can’t control the figure directly. Whenever possible, the figure runs from left to right and back again, and aggravatingly, they also leap into the air in regular intervals.

So you have to control the figure indirectly: You can at least prevent them from wildly running around by pressing the spacebar, but be aware of the fact that they will jump anyway! This way you will have to move through the intricate passages of the tower, where you’ll not only encounter sticky surfaces or stones that only allow you to go in one direction, but also small teleportation holes. And then, at the latest, this great puzzle platformer gets really difficult and demands a certain degree of sense of rhythm. Have fun! >>PLAY
