You're a deadly but caring cursor in Cursor Custodian, a game made in 48 hours for the 2020 GMTK Jam using C++ and SDL2

  • Moving the cursor near the player will cause him to move in the opposite direction. 
  • Clicking the left mouse button near the player will cause him to jump. The closer the cursor is to the player, the higher he jumps!
  • Guide the player away from holes, but don't get too close— he'll die on collision with the cursor! Keep the player alive as long as possible to get the best score.

bug where player goes into wall and is invincible until screen scrolls past

the player is way too slow pls fix

ur game has a glitch where it doesn't end the game when you fall in the hole

worked for me too

my best is now in the 50

i did it againnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn


he died



i did it again

oh he died

i will get a BIG highscore tho :|

i glitched it he did not die when he fell in to a hole :|

nice job poly!



I cant get past the first jump its so hard. Also how do you jump higher it never works for me

when i fall down but go into a block/platform you dont die for a fue seccons


I feel the same pain as your's polymarks when I try coding a game

I fell out of the map but didn't die lol

The screen is just black for me but the game is still playing




there is a bug where if you glitch into the side of a platform you become invincable and off the screen and 1 way to fix is adding side collision

dude the jump is not even a jump the jump suck
