    This was actually really fun to jump around on. I broke it though. Jumping over that little post at the top left of the map causes rockets to no longer fire properly.

    I'd enjoy playing this as a full game with objectives.

    Yeah, rockets vanish immediately if they're outside of the level boundaries, and that's actually out of the level boundaries. It used to be inaccessible but I tweaked the force a little and now you can land up there.

    Great now I have to think of something to do with it.

    This is too entertaining, take it down.

    I noticed that sometimes when colliding with a wall, you reload 1 rocket, as if you were on the ground for a split second. It's hard to explain but in the (staircase?) section (The climby bit underneath the pole) you can wall jump from side to side having fired more than 4 rockets whilst in the air. I got to about 9, but it' is really hard to keep yourself in the air.

    9/10 I want a time trial race mode

    I can't seem to replicate this. Your rockets will reload if you have no vertical velocity and there are no rockets on screen, so you could be hitting the ceiling at the perfect frame to get one rocket back.

    Edit

    Done with the level.

    The best rocket-jumping-furry simulator I've ever played.

    Although for some reason it's super laggy in firefox and fine in IE. That's weird.

    Aw yeah, ] is the best button.

    edit: Make a few levels where you have infinite rockets.

    For science.

    I really wasn't going to show it off to Reddit until there was something more to it, especially because it is hosted from my dropbox. Since you jumped the gun I might as well post.

    It's running in HTML5. For sake of compatibility it will try to use WebGL (if your drivers support it), otherwise it falls back on Canvas, which is horrible but playable. Try to update your drivers. If it doesn't look like this something is wrong:

    Edit

    Reddit killed my dropbox! I'm hosting it from my site now.

    Huh, I can still definitely do it. I'll try to get some sort of gif or something to explain it
