The Unlucky Hero

A hero of an infamous Jump&Run finds himself in a difficult situation. The princess he rescued turns out to be a robot with feelings. In fact a lot of feelings for our poor hero.
The unlucky hero desperate to find a way out, turns to the defeated final boss. He helps the hero by providing him with a machine that can reverse time. Now his story begins! He has to run reverse through time. With your help he might escape…

A demo of this game was produced by myself in the Mobile Games class at the university. It is built from scratch without using any special apis except the standard Java ME ones.

This is not a normal Jump&Run game. The goal is to go back in time with respect to some rules

  • The hero has to make his way from the final level to the first. (Time flows reverse)
  • Each level has a limit of health that the hero must reach before jumping to the next level.
  • Each 1UP actually reduces his health. (Everything is reversed!)
  • If the hero touches an opponent his health is incremented.
