Mobility! Accessible precision platformer
I love precision platformers, but they've always been really difficult. Mobility is my attempt to make the genre more accessible, with different difficulty settings, accessibility options, and a browser version. (Die-hard fans, though, can also ignore all that and just play everything on the highest difficulty. Your choice!)
In Mobility, every platform is a switch you activate upon contact. The goal in each level is to activate all platforms, making each level a little puzzle, especially when you're attempting to score a new record. In the story, these rooms are engine rooms on spaceships that you (a repairman in training) has to fix.
I made this game over two years, in my free time during my game design study. While I am not charging for this game, if you enjoy it consider voting with your wallet to support me with making more games in the future.

This is really cute and happy and I have to thank you so much for this! +1 for the accessibility options!
Really enjoyed playing this, great little game. Nice simple visuals which work perfectly with the gameplay and great music. Really appreciated the light humour and storyline and enjoyed the difficulty options with each level, great idea. I'm not sure what the choice of characters really added to the game, if anything I feel it detracted from the story if you're changing characters as you progress through the game. I didn't notice any change in abilities or difficulty with each player so I assume it's purely aesthetic? Overall I really like it and would love to see a sequel or extended version, could happily play this for a much longer period of time. Completed the first play through on Contact in 1hr 40mins and although you have the re-playability in other difficulties the storyline is already over. Already recommended it to a few friends!
Thanks for playing & recommending! Sadly, I don't think an extended edition or sequel is going to happen, as I really want to make a completely new game next. Thanks for the suggestion, though!
This is good game design!
This game is great! I was looking for some platformer that is easier than 'pulling my hair' difficulty and what I found is beyond any expectations. This game has it all: story, design, MUSIC, gameplay. This is simply awesome. Thank you for this! It is just brilliant. And it let's you control your difficulty in a very interesting way!
I will just say that I LOVED IT
Love this, despite my anger! It's great how every level has 4 different modes, what a fantastic little idea that is to keep things interesting =)
Having a story to go along with the "precision platforming" (AKA rage) is a cracking addition too, makes completing every level worth it to see what happens next!
Keep up the awesome work, this was a corker! =)
That crouching long jump feels REAL good. Great job on the game!
It just says "press undefined" ?
Seems the button mappings are not set correctly! I broke that in the latest update, oops. Try pressing [F12] two times on the title screen, this should reset the default keybindings until I fix it.
Edit: Should be fixed now. If it doesn't work yet, the aforementioned trick still works.
AWESOME!!! The only problem is the size screen, sometimes I can't see the text because the screen is a little on top.... :-/
What's your screen's resolution? You could try setting screen scale to 1x or full screen in the settings menu of the desktop versions, or activate the fullscreen mode of your browser (press [F11] in Chrome or Firefox).
What a great concept! I love this approach to sliding scale difficulty. It was fun to find each puzzle and decide how hard I wanted it to be once I got there. Sometimes playing platformers can feel like the dev is intentionally trying to make your life a living hell for the fun of it. I think we've a reached saturation point with hardcore platformers and we need fresh takes on the genre like this. Well done.
Thank you so much for this thoughtful comment, I agree with a lot of your opinions here. Let's make games more accessible for everyone!
Fun little game about me being awesome, and other stuff.
Really a very interesting game!
edit: as seen in the author's reply below, this issue has been fixed. Game installs correctly in the itch.io app under Linux now.
tiny bug report: I was forced to play it in the browser though as installing via the itch.io app gave me a "no executable found" on Ubuntu. I am guessing because itch.io doesn't understand deb files. Check out the following documentation for that. https://itch.io/docs/itch/integrating/platforms/linux.html
Thanks for pointing this out! I uploaded a .tar.gz as Linux version now, which the itch app should be able to load.
any chance of having a mac executable in the future?
I don't own a mac OS device I need to make a mac version, but I'll try to lend one from my friends soon. It could take a while, though! Feel free to check out the browser version in the meantime.
I think the game would feel better if camera movement is more smooth
Great game though
Looks very nice. Can't wait to try it out!
I can't wait for this game to come out! From the looks of the teasers, I love it already! Can you please notify me when this comes out? My email is 41BrRisack@gmail.com!
