    Hi everyone!
    I'm very excited to finally present my first game: Dump runner

    Preview footage:

    Any feedback is much appreciated. Also, if you have any experience with marketing mobile games, I'd love to hear your tips & tricks.

    Edit: I've updated the name to Dump runner instead of Dump! because the previous name had some trouble being found in the appstore / playstore.

    I like it, but I wish it was more focused on a one-or-two jump maximum mechanic. It currently allows unlimited jumping, and I think it would be a more popular if you modeled it off of Mr. Jump. ... I could be wrong, but it feels more like a flappy game where there is sometimes no point in touching the ground; maybe if you have tight knit design of level obstacles, then players are forced to go from flappy to ground. I can't wait to play it once it is out on iOS. Nice art!

    Hey thanks for the feedback. Though it might seem like there is no limit to how much you can jump at a time, there actually is a limit of 2x. The only time you can do more than a double jump is when you pick up a powerup that allows you to jump an unlimited amount of times within 14 seconds which only happens about 3 times throughout the whole game.

    Kinda disappointed by the name.. I was expecting something with poop and funny lol

    Other than that it looks really good and agree that limited jumping would be good to do, or just add a hard mode that limits jumps.

    This looks great :D
    I'm a huge fan of pixel games and currently working on one myself.

    It does look like something Dong Nguyen would make so I'm instantly loving the art style.

    I can't wait to play on iOS :D

    Thanks for the feedback everyone!

    The first version with the name Dump! had some issues being found on the appstore / playstore so I updated the name to: Dump runner.
    Both versions are now available and findable on the appstore / playstore!
