Got this via Jaz Rignall at USGamer.net. It's a browser game in the style of old school 16bit platformers and it's really pretty great. The music is awesome, the graphics are lovely and it plays pretty well... going to try it with a controller later.

Anyway, I thought you guys would appreciate this.

Did a search, found nothing, please kill me if old.

This is really slick. It's pretty much just Genesis-era Sonic, but it's been a long time since we've had one of those. The presentation is spot on too.

It's easy to play anyway. Just map the buttons with xpadder.

Holy shit. This game is amazing. The gameplay reminds me of Sonic and Mega Man a bit. The music is fantastic, I'm getting some Sega Genesis vibes from it (the sfx totally sounds like straight from the Genesis too). And the sprite work is beautiful.

Is there an OST available?

Now that I've beaten the game, I gotta say that throughout from start to finish this game is really well polished. There are multiple paths you can take in the levels, a lot of secrets, but what amazed me the most outside of the graphics and music was just how much attention to detail it has in the platforming itself. Usually I run into platformers that get quite annoying with the enemy layout, obstacles, and deathpits everywhere. However, this game has the right kind of layout where you aren't just dying all the time unlike stuff like Dimps Sonic games.

This is honestly the best indie platformer I've ever played, and hoping there will be more of this character and game in the future. Truly stunned by presentation and the level layouts, graphics, music, and level themes.

Really neat little platformer! I'd definitely grab this on Vita.

Chakram/Jetpack combo is a lot of fun.

This is really damn good. I'm surprised that they selected Flash as the delivery platform, however, as everything about it is top notch except the framerate. This game deserves 60 fps like any good retro platformer. Aside from that, though, it's really really good. Definitely deserves some proper ports.

Yeah, would love to exchange money for a nice console or standalone PC port.

The resolution is higher and the framerate is lower than your standard 16-bit platformer, probably not worth the tradeoff.

Like with many Euro platformers, I don't think the visuals are as good as any of the Genesis greats, but I like the music.

Anyone else get bad glitches in chrome? Ripple labs 2 had a looped texture of the spring in the background, and I got an error after every level I completed.

I played a few levels and, despite a few glitches, I really liked it.

The only glitch I had was when I tried to take it fullscreen, I couldn't return it back to it's original size. The screen shrunk down to the size of a Gameboy screen.

I can kind of see that, but I feel like it wouldn't be out of place in the Genesis library.

Haha the keyboard controls are space to jump and ctrl to attack, it feels like im a kid playing Jazz Jackrabbit again.

The presentation is off the charts, the fake magazine ads used as posters in the room are such an inspired touch, and I love the secrets tracker (one of my favorite weird things from old dos/amiga/genesis/snes era platformers that died out in that era)

I would definitely pay for this game, its insane to me they're releasing it for free
