Description
"Lovely." -Kotaku

Nimble Spark is a simple yet endlessly-challenging action game inspired by home videogames of the early 80s. Tall columns move relentlessly forward or back, carrying you along with them, and always picking up speed. Earn points by landing on yellow "hotspot" columns. Your movement is restricted to jumping from one column to the next, either to the left or to the right. If you let yourself get carried off the top or bottom of the screen, or if you jump and miss, it's game over!

A white bonus star appears occasionally--catch it and you'll get a large number of points, and you'll also buy yourself time by slowing down the movement of the columns. There's also a "bad guy" who deactivates any hotspot that he touches, and if he catches you, that's the end of your game. You'll know him when you see him.

Nimble Spark has already been ported to Facebook (Flash), iOS and Android, and we're ready to bring it to Steam! Give us a vote and help make it happen!

Yes, making full use of the entire screen on widescreen displays is also already on the "potential future improvements" list.

Nice, the new art is definitely an improvement! One thing though, are you planning to add widescreen support? Most monitors nowadays are widescreen, which always makes me a bit annoyed when a game isn't natively widescreen. It's not a gamebreaker, but I think something many people would appreciate seeing added.

I went ahead and gave you a vote though, as I can see you are still working on this and expect to see more improvements down the line as well ^_^

Good timing--check out the trailer and screenshots that we just posted, they show the new graphical look of the game. As for leaderboards, it's on the list of things to add in the future as time permits.

I like the idea (somewhat reminds me of Frogger), but as others have said it needs a face-lift. A few different modes, leaderboards, and the like would also be worth adding.
