Hey guys! I have been working on general animations. They are coming in ALPHA 4 (December).

In the meantime, enjoy this sneak peek: the new disappearing floor animation!

Plataforma ULTRA's Alpha 4!

New on this alpha:
  • 5 new levels! (levels 61 to 65)
  • Level loading optimizations! (2 to 4 times)
  • Reorganized menus
  • New animations and general aesthetic improvement

On the new levels (levels 61 to 65) you will encounter a disappearing floor. This is a new never-seen-before state-of-the-art dashed-lines-look-cool mechanic!


Download alpha 4 now! Available for both Windows and Linux.


Windows version (32 and 64 bits)


Linux Version (64 bits). Ubuntu 14.04 or similar.

Remember to leave feeback, both positive and negative.

Hope you enjoy it!

Too bad this doesn't get more attention. ;)

Btw. how often do you update the Desura version?

Very nice, kind and fun game!! Played it a work today  ;D Wanted to continue at home now, but didn't find x86 linux version :(

Does it exist? Because if I'll continue playing it at work - my boss will fire me  :D

Btw, is there any settings to switch game to windowed mode? (and to minimize window, when boss is nearby  :D)

Thanks exploiter! It may be because I am not good at marketing (getting better with time though!).

The Desura version was the previous one (Plataforma) and this is a new game (Plataforma ULTRA). The old one I uploaded it on November 2013 and I kept updating it until May 2014 and that's when I started with the ULTRA version.

This version will have more levels (90 instead of 30), new mechanics, and graphics. I also added some "meta-game" stuff such as achievements and unlocks, to keep players engaged.

My achilles' heel is the graphics part, and I am looking for an animator/artist. Ideally it would be an Argentinian one (I am from Arg) so I could talk him face to face but the indie scene here is really small. Keeping my hopes up though!

For the time being there is no x86 linux. I have a 64 bits linux and I couldn't figure out a way to make one Linux version that works on both 32 and 64 bits. There is a less optimal version and that is to use WINE.

There is not a key to do it. You can go Main menu > Help and Options > Options > Video and untick "Fullscreen". Alternatively, if you are in-game Pause (P or Esc) > Options > Video.

Thank you both for the kind words!

santiaboy, thanks! I'll try it tomorrow  ;)

Well, about 32 and 64. I think there's no way to do it. (when I built my pre-alpha I've built for both versions) But, you can build it (if you have time) for example on virtual machine (V-BOX, for example). This way I tested my builds  :D

You usually can cross compile, you need to add the -m32 flag. The harder part is getting all the proper 32 bit libraries. For that you'll need to ask someone else with more experience regarding Linux. ;)

Yeah, I had difficulties and I just gave up. At least for the alpha, I am sticking for 64 bits.
I am considering (for the final release) to set up a virtual machine with linux 32 bits and compile everything there.
