-- Made in 10 days for #MovieGameJam 2018 --

The aim of the game is to Land Gruber collecting as many coins and notes as you can on the way down. Happy trails!


Left and Right to move Gruber

Scoring points:

Coins - 10 points

Notes - 50 points

Limo - 100 points

Fire - minus 100 points

Bonus features:

You can activate PG-13 mode from the title screen which removes the profanity and violence (but why would you want to do that?)


As coins spin they become smaller and therefore harder to collect so try and grab them when they are front facing.

When you pass through the cloud layer you have reached the half way point of your free-fall.

An alert will sound when you are approaching the ground so be ready to hit the Limo for those crucial bonus points.

Nakatomi Plaza is taller than I remembered.


Now that's a fun game!

Thanks for playing :)


hehe very nice Lee. Love it. My highest is 1050 ar the mo'.


Thanks, glad you enjoyed it. There's a little bit of luck involved too as the coins spawn randomly so might be worth another go (or ten) ;) 


1350 is my highest now.


Seems quite professional, very good use of pixel art, effects and fonts. HO HO HO!

Thanks :D This is my second (finished) Pico-8 game so still learning a thing or two about pixel art. Glad to hear it looks good.


Fun, addicting game and great use of the inspiration! Had to make myself stop playing. Best of luck in the Jam!

Thanks! Glad you had fun playing it :D
