Character stuck in a predicament

While learning web development, I wanted to see how far I could take JavaScript. Naturally I turned to creating a game as that seemed way different from creating yet another website animation. Additionally creating games is motivating in itself as the debugging process is just playing a game.

This is a simple creation similar to Mario, which uses some free assets I found online. The idea is to collect all the coins in each level, and don't touch the lava. Use the arrow keys to move.

A particularly fun part of the creation was getting the "physics" of the jump to feel somewhat realistic.

Play this game here.
