This game certainly has a lot of potential.
I enjoyed playing this game and I believe more could have been done to make it stand out from the rest of the games that share this same concept.
First of all, I think including a soundtrack that captures the sense of terrifying speed would greatly improve the immersion.
Second, a little animation of the the horse getting crushed between the edge of the screen a cliff when you can't make a jump in time would add to the overall experience.
I do like the fact that each run is random and there are some runs where you are luckier with the cliff placement than other runs. However, a level designer would also be nice to add more interactivity.
I really liked the scoreboard because it introduces to the player a sense of competition to see how his score compares with others.
Your concept is unique, fresh, and original.
I must say that it is quite refreshing to see someone use flash in a new, creative fashion to produce a marvelous game from a brilliant concept. Your instructions were straight forward and I am happy to have been perusing the site when this was submitted.
As another reviewer suggested, the only improvement this game needs is a larger body of content. It seems that this was produced to kind of test how the newgrounds audience might react to this game and therefore you presented to us the core concept.
What I would love to see is a complete game. I believe having many more songs, different levels of difficulty, and rewards after successful completion of a level would take this concept and lift it into the skies of a revolutionary idea.
