    I noticed a bug. When you die, your position gets reset but your score doesn't. You should reset the score as well.

    Thanks everyone for testing it out. It seems to be liked so far, even though the concept is a simple one.

    Keep posting those high scores :D , it's interesting to see how far people are getting. It might give me a better idea on how many levels are needed before it loops back and speeds up.

    Daniel, I'll look into the bug. As I'm still learning Unity, I would be surprised if there where no bugs at this point.

    Thanks again,

    Richard

    But you have a limited set of lives so accumulating the score for all the lives is not technically a bug, just a gameplay descision. :)

    I got to a grey wall and then died directly after. Was that the end of the level?

    I thought it was endless at first, but it's a finite distance?

    At the moment that wall is just a reset trigger which sends you back to the begining and speeds up the game a little. I need to model the end of the level soon so you know you've completed it. At the moment I'm working on a Dinosaur model, but the level end will be soon.

    I tried making it endless, but it didn't play as well with just prefab map chunks, so I used the code as a map generator where I could go back in and add the rocks and trees myself.

    Thanks for testing it.

    Hi Richard, as well as dabbling with Unity I'm a composer and sound designer by day. I have a little down time at the moment, so if you would like bespoke music, and sound effects, of quality for this project, PM me. No worries if you have that already covered, but I like this a lot, so much so, I'd do it for enjoyment only... (+ a credit should you decide to use it).

    Kind regards and best of luck either way

    Simple yet addicting :D

    Did you create the caveman? When he hit the tree... Haha thats hilarious :D A hollow hit sound would make that perfect.

    Good job so far. Keep it up mate!

    Nicely done... reminds me of canabalt. Sitting here this morning I probably played this more than any other unity game, except maybe Twiik's, haha. That's got to count for something :)

    I just uploaded a new version with a lot of new content. The dinosaur is now in along with a short intro animation and start screen. I've also added some great music created by Rob Wright.

    Again, all comments welcome.

    Thanks,

    That's really well done! There's a nice ambiance in your game. Music's doing a great job too.
    Cheers!

    It's looking great with the new editions. Love the chomping teeth screen wipe. Will this poor cave man always be doomed, or will there be ends to the level (like a cave at the end to duck into)?

    Thanks to all who took a look.

    mouf : I agree, Rob did a great job on the music.

    Alvarus : There is a cave with a mailbox outside at the end of the level. If you can make it, you are safe and the Trex walks off the screen defeated. At the moment, the same level starts again, but sped up a little, however I'm working on more levels.

    Thanks,

    Richard

    Wicked nice game thus far. Thought some problems i noticed, not sure if they have been resolved or not, are that when you get far on your first life, and die, you get about 1000 points when you respawn. So i get to about 2000 or so on my first life,died got 3000 ish...got pretty far after that then died a lot and ended with a score of 8800 without making nearly the equivalent.

    EDIT:

    Just played the game again. I found the problem, it is any point after the flower checkpoint. When you get hit, and respawn, the game counts it as if i re-ran the whole first part again, thus allowing for a really high score...like the one i just got of 9355.

    Running on a beastly box here but still experiencing some very choppy framerates, I can barely make the first jump, so poor cave dude is doomed before he starts. :(

    xToxicInferno : thanks for spotting that. I'm using the X position to calculate score and forgot about the offset from the check point. I have a offset already set up, but it looks like I forgot to reset it for the checkpoint.

    lildragn : thats strange and the first I've heard of slow frame rates. On my machine, which is a few years old now, I get 900 frames per second. There are only 28 draw calls and very limited polygon count. How do other unity games run on your system?

    Thanks,

    Richard

    False alarm it was probably a process running in the bg that killed the fps. Restarted the browser and everything works like before.

    Thanks for re-checking, I was a little worried then and have been racking my brain trying to think of somthing I could have done differently to everyone else. As I'm still learning unity, that could have been anything!
    I'm glad it was a false alarm :)

    Thanks,

    Richard

    The game feels great, good work! I like the setting and music too. I have two crits: (1) If this is the first level, it is way too long, or there needs to be checkpoints. (2) It is really hard to tell what you have to duck under before it's right in front of you. I don't necessarily have a fix for the second one, but I still enjoyed the game, good work.

    Hello Ayrik, thanks for taking a look.
    I agree with both your cits, and have been thinking about adding shadows under objects that you need to roll under. This might help, although after playing it a few times, it's easier to know what to roll under.
    This is just a test level at the moment, but it's way too hard for level 1. There is a check point, but only 1, in he middle of the level.

    Thanks,

    Richard

    awesome and addicting, played so many times i hit over 12000 score, you should make the game go bak to main menu when you run out of lives.

    good job.

    Glad you like it :)
    The build that is up is now a very old one and I've added a lot to it. I think it's about final now and I've just submitted it to shockwave.com. I have no idea how long there approval process is, but I'm hoping to hear from them soon. I'll probably be submiting to wooglie soon as well.

    Thanks,

    Richard
