  • Character upgrades, new abilities, hidden levels, and branching paths to discover.
  • Meticulously designed 8-bit and 16-bit sprites, animations, and backgrounds in the spirit of the classics.
  • A memorable cast of offbeat villains, bosses, and associates.
  • Original soundtrack by renowned chiptune composer Rainbowdragoneyes, handmade using Famitracker.

Tight and solid platforming and level design

The game is a fair balance of challenge and frustration. The abilities are fun to use and the level design is amazing, and the future, past motif, is very nicely implemented, and that soundtrack.

Absolutely love this game, I've purchased it as a gift for friends of mine who grew up playing classic 8bit/16bit videos games. Absolutely love it.
