  • Game:

    Pinwheel is a one-directional, side-scrolling, 2d platformer, where you control a pinwheel. The levels are randomly generated, and extend infinitely in one direction. Every level offers a new and unique build, which provides for challenging and rewarding fun.

    After you have collected a set amount of coins, you can unlock different seasons that add a refreshing look to the game play. You can also unlock new colors for your pinwheel in the store.

    In the level, there the three different kinds of traps: spikes, mines, and saws. There is 15 unlockable colors and 4 unlockable seasons.

    There are multiple layers that are used to add depth to the game, and coins that spawn randomly throughout each level.

    This game is cross-platform, and works on both mobile phone, and computers.



    I plan to release the game to the Web through clay.io. Windows, Mac, and Linux will be released though http://www.itch.io. I also plan to release to the Firefox marketplace. I would like to release to the Chrome Webstore, possibly once the other planed platforms are released.

    This game is my entry for the http://www.clay.io "Got Game?" student competition. For more information on the "Got Game?" student competition please visit http://www.clay.io/gotgame.


    Although I am the sole developer of this game, it would not be possible without the graphical additions of some great people on the internet.

    http://www.constructtutorials.wordpress.com for providing inspiration for the pinwheels.

    Pixel Pirate for the foliage throughout the game.

    Johan Olivier - Artist and soul founder of dravenx games, for the explosion graphic from his platform kit.

    Use the Arrow Keys, A&D keys, or the Pads to move left or Right. Use the Up Arrow, W, Space, Z or the Up Pad to Jump/Double Jump. Collect Coins and watch out for traps!

    Thanks to sved for the template! Good luck on your game!

  • Audio and leaderboars are comming soon.

  • Updated the Sprite-font so it is not the default font. Now uses the same font as the Title and Buttons.

    +1 to blackhornet and the Sprite Font Generator.

  • Music and gem system are commingle soon, so be on the lookout!

  • This is super nice! Very catchy and the right amount of simple. Liking the look a lot but not very into the text. Try to have fun with the interfaces and menus, make them match the actual game graphics a bit more. The challenge is very nice, would love to see things getting visually more interesting the farther you get. Perhaps a nice but light/faint particle trail behind the pinwheel as it jumps and lands. Keep it up, it is looking nice.

    Thank you so much for your feedback! I really appreciate it.,

    The text has been changed, but for some reason is not being updated in dropbox. I am also considering the aaddition of a particle to move behind the player, as well as snow and leaves falling for each respective season.

    Thanks again for the feedback!


  • Huge Update!

    • Added Gems with a Save-Me system. You must have one gem in order to use. Gems are rare, so you might have to play a few times before you find one.
    • Added Music, a Jump Sound, a Coin Pickup Sound, a Gem Pickup Sound, a Mine Explosion Sound, and a Hit Sound!
    • Added the option to turn off the pads if you aren't playing on mobile.
    • Made the new font work.

    Next up we have the addition of difficulty, some additional visuals, a credits page, and a continued search for the white lines in-between the blocks.

    The link has been updated, your previous progress will not be saved until the game is uploaded to clay.io. These versions are exclusively for testing purposes.
