I just played the version with updated graphics. The game does look nice, with the very detailed blob monster definitely being the high point! The accompanying music does well to add to the fast-paced and tense atmosphere of the gameplay. It's still a fun little game that takes a single mechanic and runs with it, and it ends soon enough so that the game doesn't overstay its welcome.

My main criticism is that it can become somewhat difficult to control yourself when you're around the bottom of the screen, as it's tricky to quickly position the mouse underneath your character without clicking out of the game window and losing focus. I did run out of fuel and fail an attempt at the final section when my momentum would have carried me to the end, but that's just a minor nitpick, really, considering that the fuel also doubles as your life meter.

hey, thanks for checking it out! your feedback gives me an idea - maybe i should have a small black margin all around the screen so there's always a place to click? food for thought...

I got the following error when I tried to run it

"Couldn't load shared library 'gdx64.dll' for target: Windows 10, 64-bit"

that's very strange, i'll be looking into that. thanks for letting me know!

just released a new version that i hope will fix your problem. if it doesn't, if you wouldn't mind, try running the file from command line and telling me the full error. thanks so much for your interest!

further update: i found out why this problem was happening. turns out libgdx doesn't like it when there are exclamation points in the title of the game. should work now!

I finally tried the new version and it works, thanks. Difficult game.

haha, well, i hope you enjoyed all the same!
