What is Jail Escape?

Jail Escape is a 2D action platformer.
I started writing Jail Escape soon after school let out after I finished 10th grade. I had some experience in Java, but had never really written anything as complex as a game (though I had attempted it before). Originally, the game was just supposed to help me learn how to use Java in more ways, which it did of course, but it turned into more. This game is still in very early development and may not look like much yet, but hopefully, at the end of this long journey, it will be a game one can enjoy and will be at least somewhat memorable ;)
