    I present you... Pivot Platforms!

    Left and Right (or A/D) to move.
    You want to reach the end, but focus on upgrades for a while.
    Do not move too fast, or you will bypass the platform generation and fall to your doom.

    • Player Agility: Simply sets the amount of force the keyboard applies to the ball.
    • Free Distance: Moves the player forward at the start. Unfortunately, you do NOT get credit for this. If you find $2,012,401 then you can actually buy your way to 9900 which makes the game ALMOST trivial. After 9900 the upgrade is blocked. (At least for now -- I may double the length of the course :P)
    • Money Multiplier: Multiplies your money reward. The HUD money reward text DOES take this into account.
    • Gap Reduction: Reduces the gap between platforms. Note that this may make the game run slower, as more platforms will be generated.
    • Platform Rate: This makes the platforms get laid down faster. The number is per second.-----------------

    Game got boring after 45 minutes of grinding. Was getting 290,400 a go, then gave up because no max upgrade limit on anything else, or at least no limit that was reasonable obtainable that I could find. Plus its so much harder to grind if you upset the balance. I got a combination of stats to fling me 640m in the air and I just flew to the end.-----------------
    Yes I realized it might get boring. Perhaps I should just make ceiling mode a requirement? (That prevents you from flying too far above the platforms.)-----------------

    Love it!

    I do like this style of game: takes a bit of time, a little strategy and a touch of skill.-----------------

    My high score is $49,546-----------------
    Aerwhales are cwoot!
    • Every 5 platforms has a fixed 30° slope.
    • Every 8 platforms will fall when you hit them.
    • Every 40 platforms, of course, satisfy both properties.
    • Ceiling mode is forced. No more huge jumps. Yes to more free distance upgrades.-----------------

    How about making platforms random?
    70% of platforms are free-moving
    15% are fixed at 30 degrees
    7.5% are fixed flat
    5% are flat and will fall
    2.5% are at 30 degrees and will fall-----------------
