Tower - an endless runner (sort of) I might abandon

Hi all. I've got a WIP up here: http://www.stencyl.com/game/play/27651

It's basically an endless runner / platformer, and it's my first game. It was intended purely as a learning exercise and I have far exceeded my initial goals with it and have learnt so much. Now I kind of want to move on and make something else, even though I wouldn't call it finished. However, the only thing thats missing in my eyes is more content and polish (platforms, upgrades, enemies etc), and I cant see much educational merit in just grinding out more content for a game I never meant to even release.

ANYWAY! Here it is, give me feedback, let me know precisely how and why I suck so I can get better!

PS. I know there are a few little bugs and I will iron those out before I move on (its just getting late and I have work in the morning). I had in fact fixed most of them before, but had to revert to an earlier backup of the game due to a CATASTROPHIC HARD DRIVE INCIDENT.

also just noticed this build has the wrong sound effects...

SIGH.

More to do tomorrow

Best score 50 and 8 Roses...
It is fun. :)

I don't get the meaning of the background but I love the way you implemented the speed increase!
Congrats!

Cheers for playing and commenting man!

The original idea of the background was that you had to make it to the top of one of the towers. However, I couldn't implement it properly as I was really new to game development. I think I could probably accomplish it with my new found knowledge, but I've kind of lost steam on this project and want to tackle something a bit more exciting!

Cheers for the kind words man
