Just like riding a unicycle!

This is another gem of an indie game by Jussi Simpanen that shouldn’t be missed. The “slippery” controls perfectly emulate what it would be like to ride a unicycle. You build momentum by moving in a direction and continue coasting when you let off the direction. This allows you to set up a string of jumps with only one move. Great game! Check out his other ones too if you like this.

Great New Game from Adventure Islands

Adventure Islands is back with a very enjoyable new pixel art platformer with the charm and replay value one has come to expect from them! The controls feel very satisfying and the character has a nice, realistic weight to their unicycling actions. The sound and art are also great.
Highly recommend this game, as well as checking out Super Dangerous Dungeons and Total Party Kill!

Awesome over all

I love the pixel art and music. Sometimes I’d clip through the rope but not a huge annoyance. Also there’s no ad every few seconds or after every fail. Try it out! No ad spam!
