Awesome graphics and idea. Found it a bit hard to play - jumping felt a bit awkward but maybe thats my work machine. Will definitely try again from home tonight.

Nice work!

These graphics are awesome! What a transformation  Shocked

The game is fun too, I just wish the world was bigger - I ran around in the same place chasing birds for too long.

That is really good! Nice graphics and it's playable and fun to boot.. even got good difficulty levels and online highscores.
It doesn't even feel rushed at all.
Impressed!

Odd, I've only ever seen webstart do that on really slow connections. Does it work if you try again?

Alternatively, I've put together a windows .exe version. Download here.

It wasn't a requirement, just a recommendation, and whoever used Duke the best gets a special award.

Whee! Thanks for the comments everyone. Smiley

We ran out of time unfortunately, there was going to be clothes hanging from one of the lines with a t-shirt with Duke on it. However that would have needed a chunk of code to make them properly sway and flap.

Pretty fun, and even multiple levels! Though after playing that for a few minutes, those sound effects becomes extremely annoying, haha. Great art though for such a short time Cheesy

Actually tang I named the cat after Duke without telling you, so in actual fact the entire game involves duke, I just didnt say anything before because I didnt expect anybody to get upset over it. Damn

The graphics are awesome. It's easy to understand. The sounds are nice and I like the idea with the ropes.
All in all: GREAT game

Pretty impressive graphics/game..
Webstart didnt work for me either (same exception as SimonH), but neither have any of the others so most likely my problem. Download worked great!

So I had a non-techy friend who somehow had Webstart misconfigured on their mac ( Huh ) so I knocked up a native Mac version. Download link. It's the same code just wrapped up via the handy-dandy Ant Jar Bundler task.
