A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Completed for the Finally finish something game jam. This is my first ever "completed" game and first ever completed jam. I would really benefit from any feedback, don't go easy. Thank you!

You play as a rocket jumping square who is trying to get to the fire because it's snowing and it's cold outside.  Shoot at your feet to jump high! Always remember to consider the angle of the mouse.

LMB - Rocket Jump
A&D - left and right.

Recommended to play in full screen as it'll make it easier to aim.

It's been a hot minute since I've played something so simple, yet so familiar.

Great pickup game that I want to see more of.


  • I like the shadow & snowfall effect. This helps with tracking the player and perception of time.
  • Level design are simple and straight forward.
  • Music choice fits mood perfectly.


  • A few levels having timing mechanics, such as lifting platforms, that if missed the only way to restart the level is by jumping off the map.
  • Maybe by choice but I'd like the ability to jump at least the height of my character.
  • Some platforms can land on you and not cause death, even without the spike visuals still would seem that being crushed is a mechanic.

What I want to see:

  • Background visual to indicate platform moving. Ex: If a platform lifts up, just a darker rectangle behind it with a " | " cut out. Also allow platforms to rise once and then return to starting position, causing the player to have to re shoot the red target.
  • Slower rocket speed & reloading, this request slightly bleeds into another request of introducing more complex types of jumping. Reference the TF2 community with things such as sync jumping (ex: Just youtube or play).
  • Lastly and more advanced, I'd like to see momentum. Always with platforms it's enjoyable to build speed, and jump platform to platform while an approaching boulder or some other insta death object chases you. (Again advanced request).

Overall highly impressed, and a job well done.

I want to see more of this, or just scrap it and make something entirely different.  I want to see what you got.

First of all, thank you so much for your input! It's greatly appreciated. It's very nice of you to take the time and write out your thoughts.

I agree with every part of what you said. I actually come from a quake 3/tf2/halo background where rocket jumping is pretty relevant. I had slower shooting rockets in there and utilized "sync" jumping a lot on my own but I had to take it out for a reason I can't remember to be honest. 

I have decided to continue this project so I'm going to be adding a lot more features. Similar to tf2, you can also pogo, which I wanted to use to create more levels. 

Again, thanks so much
