Sketchy Maze currently uses a mouse and keyboard for inputs, but eventually will be usable from gamepad controllers, especially if it branches out and targets platforms other than desktop computers in the future.

During Gameplay#

While playing a level, the following keys are used to control the player character:

  • Left and Right arrow keys move the player left or right.
  • Up arrow to make the player jump.
  • Space Bar is used to "activate" certain doodads. Currently, only the Warp Doors require deliberate activation; Buttons and Switches activate automatically when the player character (or other mobile doodad) touches them.


See the Hotkeys page for shortcut keys, especially around the Level Editor feature.
