Made for the 8 Bits to Infinity - 2 Button Game Jam

When the Doctor falls asleep on Robo's remote, Auto-Run is turned on. Robo, now always running, must get through the lab's defenses and wake the Doctor to turn off the Auto-Run.

Left Arrow: Turn around
Right Arrow: Jump (Hold to jump higher)

Challenge and Theme: 
With the theme being chip-tunes music clips all I could picture was an old 8 bit style platformer. So with the challenge of only being able to use 2 buttons I set out to make a retro inspired platformer where the only actions you can take are turn around and jump.

It's pretty neat idea, but the jumping seems to be broken. The robot often jumps a lot lower than the max jump height regardless of how long you hold down jump. This makes the game quite unpredictable and therefore less fun. For reference, I played the web build.

Outstanding work!

Thank you!


This could actually be a pretty nice game, (it already is, but) you should add some more levels, and i would try them all. good idea for the controls.

Thank you very much. Not sure if I will do more with the game yet, but I'm glad you liked it.

I finished hard and normal mode!!! Very unique mechanics!


Great job! Thank you very much.

This is really great - well done! Surprisingly easy to pick up and play. Definitely a contender for 1st place in the jam.

Thank you so much for the kind words. I really liked the way the movement worked in this, gad it was as easy to pick up as I hoped.
