There's always such a shortage of enjoyable co-op games, so it's always a pleasure to see someone focusing on that. Looking forward to trying it. :D Keep up the great work!!

Needs enemies and some kind castlevania/zelda items you pick up throughout the game to make it more exciting. Then I would be sold.
Gabriel Oct 20, 2013 @ 5:30pm 
I'm really picky when it comes to these kind of games, but I love the art style and the fact that it has co-op. How I love co-op!

@graywolfe42 A trailer would be nice, but that video is essentially 18 minutes of gameplay. A little silly of you to skip watching it.

not bad
graywolfe42 Sep 7, 2013 @ 9:13pm 
You should really put a video up that isn't someone else reviewing it for 18 minutes. A trailer preferabbly. I didn't even watch it. However, the screenshots gave me enough of an impression for a yes vote.

this game looks really fun it gives me a very nostalgic feeling

Looks amazing, it would be awesome if the online co-op came out right.

@ wgillett182
I played on both palettes and it doesn't bother me either way. I actually like the color added.

@ phatcatholic

Mhmmm. I Love the music and graphics and gameplay. I am just hoping for a really good storyline.
the big blue Jul 6, 2013 @ 12:12am 
i loved the gameplay, but i hope there is more of a story.

@MegaMasterX Interesting, works fine for me. Is the webpage available? Is the game the only thing not loading for you? Thanks.
MegaMasterX Jul 4, 2013 @ 3:03pm 
Is the demo unavailable now? I can't seem to access it.
Space Piranha Jun 24, 2013 @ 8:28pm 
I'm so excited to play more! This game is awesome :D
phatcatholic Jun 1, 2013 @ 5:35pm 
this looks better than any gameboy game i've EVER played!

I really like watching these 2-D platformers to see what the devs will come up with next. I honestly thought this whole genre was dried up years ago, but I am continuously proven wrong by games like this. I love the idea of the 2 levels built into one simply by adding a playable foreground/background. Voted Yes.
RUBBA  [author] Apr 22, 2013 @ 8:50am 
@wgillett182 Thank you for expressing your concerns. You aren't the first that had preferred the Gameboy palette. However, we did not make the change solely due to looks -- the game became extraordinarily difficult to differentiate between the foreground/background layers. You constantly felt like you were just being tricked into dying... It just didn't feel right. You'll be happy to know that we felt the same way as you about the attacks. We have changed them drastically since the current demo release. They are now capable of a short combo attack (which looks awesome) and just feels great. We also felt the foxes seemed a little out of place. At this exact moment, they are not in the game. We will either touch them up or replace them in the future. Cheers.
wgillett182 Apr 22, 2013 @ 8:24am 
Just played the demo expecting the gameboy colour palette version, have to say I'm not a fan of the step the games gone into. The addition of the giant fox enemies I feel looks bad and doesn't really add the the gameplay. The attacks aren't responsive enough and the throwing dagger attack just feels a bit clunky and limited. Gameboy palette version had my upvote, this one a down.

I'd love to see Japanese language.

Tera_GX Mar 30, 2013 @ 11:27pm 
Earns my vote. I don't want the GB palette however, but the screenshots appease that concern.
Super Smooth Groovy Gravy Mar 22, 2013 @ 12:15am 
Does this game still have Gameboy Color graphic as an optional or it was taken out?
PeteUplink Mar 19, 2013 @ 7:48am 
Looks good! Voted for this one.
DONE Mar 18, 2013 @ 4:25am 
Looks interesting
Zabi Mar 16, 2013 @ 5:47pm 
Normally I detest these retro games but this one looks actually good.
Moot Zarell Mar 16, 2013 @ 12:17pm 
Giraffes = Up vote!!!
The Prodigy Mar 11, 2013 @ 1:05pm 
I hate platformers but... There is beautiful, non-intrusive graphics >< Upvote!
Sorry for my english :P
Bloopgun Mar 9, 2013 @ 9:15am 
crappy "retro" graphics: check. bad sidescroller gameplay:check. downvoted on greenlight: double check
intok Mar 2, 2013 @ 9:27pm 
Need to have this on Linux!!!

Will there be online co-op or only local? Also will there be controller support?

Being a 1st gen Gameboy owner (still have it in fact), I'd love to play this.
Xiang Feb 22, 2013 @ 12:08am 
Looks really good! Honestly, I like the gameboy style graphics better than the color ones. If you could make it so we could choose between color nd no color, that would be great :)
RUBBA  [author] Feb 21, 2013 @ 9:09am 
@Caelistas Thanks for stopping by and giving your opinion. I'd recommend you look at any of the screenshots or the announcement for proof that the game will, in fact, have colour. I'd be excited to hear from you why the game is so generic so that we can perhaps improve on that in future updates. Lastly, I'm pretty positive grayscale does not mean what you think it does. Cheers.
Caelistas Feb 21, 2013 @ 3:59am 
How about some color hmm?

This would belong better on my old friggin gameboy with it's current color pallete.

It looks very basic and generic.... + greyscale really? There are a LOT more platformers on greenlight that are way more deserving.

dont like arkade or 2D-games with 1980-feel on PC
fits better on tablets/phones ..therefore NO steam
RUBBA  [author] Feb 9, 2013 @ 10:53pm 
Wow! We just hit a whopping 1,000 favourites! A huge thank you to everyone who has checked out our game. Much love.
Static Butcher Feb 8, 2013 @ 4:04am 
Excellent concept, eager to see it hit steam.
Kris Viking Feb 4, 2013 @ 2:54pm 
Great Gameboy look.
Julia Feb 3, 2013 @ 3:01pm 
I looked at some of the pictures and I saw some color, but the video had no color, can you choose if you want color or not? Because, I think I prefer no color.
RUBBA  [author] Feb 1, 2013 @ 12:32pm 
@Rabid Goose D'oh, sorry about that! We'll try and include a sound option in a future demo update... For now, try hitting the "0" on your numpad. This is a shortcut for mute. Also, the + and - keys will increase / decrease volume. Cheers, and thanks for the comment :)
SOLDIER 1st class Feb 1, 2013 @ 7:59am 
hmm this looked really boring at first but tbh, now im kinda interested :D ill give it a vote
also, demo is adictive as hell but is there a no sound option? im playing at work here! lol
workingstiff76 Jan 28, 2013 @ 5:10pm 
At first I thought this would be a Super Meat Boy clone, but the foreground / background mechanic is interesting - upvote.
RUBBA  [author] Jan 26, 2013 @ 3:26pm 
@Rigulel Press Enter to pause the game, then you can switch between Single / Two Player mode. It even gives you a nifty little control graphic in case you aren't sure of the keys. Cheers.
Rigulel Jan 26, 2013 @ 8:52am 
Will it have a two player mode?
banksby Jan 24, 2013 @ 1:01am 
If you are hoping to release this on Steam, then you must push for an online co-op. In this time and age local co-op doesn't cut it. With that said, awesome looking game. Upvoted.
RUBBA  [author] Jan 20, 2013 @ 11:10am 
@ukkosfaith Well said. Thanks for stopping by, friend.
ukkosfaith Jan 19, 2013 @ 12:38pm 
That's funny, I tend to feel that way in general about modern games. Be aware that your opinions are not facts and many of us do not share them or care for them.

I am a Steam user because of games like this. And it is games like this that I anticipate. And I hardly buy a lot of the modern games on this service except when they are severely on sale. And I personally don't go to Greenlight projects about brown, hyper-realistic first person shooters and complain that they're brown, hyper-realistic first person shooters. I simply, ignore them.

And even in general I don't turn down modern games nearly as much as some of you seem to reject retro games. I, for instance, do anticipate games like Tales of Xillia and Super Mario Galaxy 2, which are fairly modern. I think it is fairly closed minded to turn down a game just because it is "retro".
ElementX Jan 18, 2013 @ 2:04am 
Retro games suck. If I wanted to play retro games I would travel back in time
