Description
Release date: May 2016
This is a platformer comprised of eleven levels. Nine in the campaign and two unlockable levels. The gameplay is meant to be fast and fun with a focus on destroying the enemy units (drones and tanks). You will have to fight a more challenging boss at the end of each level in the campaign. There are two weapons at Joe's disposal, his briefcase for bashing, and he can turn any mobile into a pulse weapon which remotely destroys the drones.

Each item you are holding = 1 HP so if you have a briefcase and mobile, you can get hit two times before dieing. If you get hit once, you lose the mobile, get hit again and lose the briefcase, get hit one more time and you're dead.

Each level in the campaign has its own song to suit it. The controls are simple with navigation + two action buttons and includes a touch UI.

Thanks everyone for your support!

Looks like a fun platformer. From the video it seems to mix things up by changing the mode of challenge. Sometimes just killing floor traps. Sometimes just enemies. Once in a while activateable things or obstacles. And, often giving a combination of these to keep things fresh.

It also has that early 80's NES feel with the level of graphical detail, the sound effects. And, a sort of unlikely hero on a just barely fleshed out mission (plumber saving a princess equates to business man saving what's left of the world)...Not saying it is a bad thing either. It makes it seem authentic.

Is there a demo level available to play? I'd like to see if the controls are as responsive as they appear.

Down-voted. This doesn't appear to add anything to an already over-crowded genre.
