- Added apples that try to knock you down
- Added the critical path bonus multiplier
- Upgraded to the latest versions of Crafty and jQuery
- Fixed some bugs
- Added ability to restart the game after you fall
- Added a high score system
- Changed some of the sound effects
How To Play
Business Frog is trying to manage a large and complicated software project. Use the left and right arrow keys to guide his jumps through the Gantt chart.
Blue tasks are normal platforms that he can bounce on. The black platforms are major tasks - jumping on one is a major boost forward! Hit the red critical path tasks in sequence to get a multiplier bonus at the end of the game...but if you miss one the count starts all over!
Hit the briefcases to warp ahead.
As you get higher, apples (representing new requirements) will fly in from the sides and try to knock you off schedule.
Cake in the lunch room? All your engineers just left their desks and the time-to-complete gets longer (temporarily). Is that a good thing in this case?
Jump through management hoops for more bonus points.
The original game was made by Omar Goshen.
The CSS Loading Spinner is from SpinKit.
The mute/speaker icons, portal, and smoke jump graphics are unmodified from the original game. Pow Studios is credited for the smoke jump sprite.
I created the apple and cake images myself and submitted them to the public domain. You can download them and other free graphics in SVG format from OpenClipart.
