Ripple Runner Deluxe is a rhythmic platformer released on May 19, 2014 by DDRKirby(ISQ). It was featured on Pixel Love on June 23, 2014. The player controls a runner that has to make it to the end of the stage by jumping and "rippling" while moving on platforms.

The game was originally a Ludum Dare 29 entry, which placed second overall in the Competition portion of the jam[2].


Ripple Runner Deluxe has five different controls for the ripple and flip actions. These controls are interchangeable within a level.

  • Jump - Space.png Spacebar

    • Letter keys F/R/V/J
    • Ctrl
  • Flip
    • Letter keys D/E/C/K
    • Shift


  • Navigate through menu options
    • Up.png Down.png Up/down arrow keys
  • Select option
    • Enter
  • Pause game/go back to titlescreen
    • Esc


There are six stages in Ripple Runner. The player does not have to go through the stages in order, and can select the stage they want to play directly on the titlescreen.

Throughout each stage, the runner will be on screen with its reflection directly below it. The player uses the keyboard to switch between runners, which is necessary when a platform is not available for the runner or its reflection.

When the player completes a stage without any mistakes, a medal will appear next to the stage's option on the menu.

Interactive objects

  • Platforms - Flat surfaces that the runner and its reflection run on.
  • Checkpoints - When passed, the player is respawned at the last one touched upon dying.


  • Spikes - Cause the player to restart at the last checkpoint touched immediately after contact.


Ripple Runner Deluxe features a Jukebox, which can be selected from the stage select screen. The names of all the tracks used in the game appear on screen, and choosing one allows the track to be played. The stage the music was used in is also displayed. A description about the track is also shown below all the options.
