    Hello,

    I'd like to show you something I've been making for a while now and plan to publish in January (now February!), 2017! Hopefully, you can help me to make this game better for you!

    The game:
    * you swipe - toaster jumps in the direction of the swipe
    * get toasts to get a small boost and charge stronger jump
    * avoid obstacles, bounce off bagels or walls
    * collect as much toasts as you can
    * multiple endless levels of varying difficulty
    * outfits and hats

    2017 add ons:
    * custom puzzle-y hand-made levels
    * built-in level editor
    * level sharing

    If you have an idea for a fun obstacle or outfit for a toaster - let me know!

    I'm currently working on iOS testing version and will add a sign up form as soon as it will be up (Monday or Tuesday)! Would be great to get some feedback during the holiday season. Let me know if you're interested and I'll PM you when it'll be up!

    Got it! Thank you for your interest! I'm waiting for iTunes approval (they're probably busy with all the Christmas games right now), going to add some iOS-specific UI fixes and add the emails I got from this forum to the testers.

    New level is up for testing!
    [​IMG]

    + tweaked balance of other levels too
    + lowered screen shake on toast
    + removed "exit" button which would freeze the game

    Started working on a level editor, which will help me to create shorter challenge levels and maybe allow player-made levels in the future!

    Thank you, Jayg2015! Glad you liked it and tried out editor too (that's a really nice easy level, hope you don't mind that I added it in the post for people to try out). Let me know if you'll have any feedback.

    I'm already going to add "Next level" button in the next update, since that was most requested. Might tweak jump speed a little bit, so I could finalize it before starting to make more levels.

    Interesting and looks fun, if I get it you dont need to touch the wall like Tofu (the ninja tofu game) to change direction? Also it's not an endless climber right?! There's a goal to reach?

    Good questions!

    Toaster jumps at the angle of swipe recharging after getting collectibles/powerups. Aim, reaction & some planning are at play here. Walls are safe to bounce off or slide down (depending collision angle).

    It has both 3 endless levels as well as small hand-made challenge levels where you have to reach the goal (if level is made well you can also go for 100% & try to collect all the toast). There's also a level editor, so you can make those challenge levels, upload to game webservice & share the code around.

    So you're a toaster trying to get as many bread as possible by swiping without having to bounce on the wall, that's better than I thought, it's more challenging and gives you more possibilities, I like it more that way. Level editor is a great great idea, being able to share and play other's levels reminds me of maze (full name?) where you could create your own maze.

    By the way, a toaster trying to get breads reminds me a lot of one of the most WTF trailer I've ever watch recently with a movie about killer donuts ^^ https://youtu.be/kUz0cSfsDMo
