Johnny Upgrade is a super hero with no skills at all... initially!

Collect coins and buy upgrades in order to beef up this cartoon fellow and to master the big arcade level and beat the evil boss!

Have fun with this action / upgrade game mashup!

News: Medals up and running!
(didn't have the time to read and answer all the comments because of that medals thingy, but will do!)



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

fun game but that you actualy NEED to die to progress in the game just sounds stupid i just think there should be no time


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Fantastic use of powerups. Great idea to use a time limit to allow gradual progression through level. Boss was easy, but time consuming (as designed I'm sure)

Thanks man!


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Nice game.
Though it is short it was quite entertaining.

Btw I found the secret medal: just collect all coins in the game within one run(almost impossible without all upgrades).

I hope there will be more games like this one.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

The game itself is pretty short, but who doesn't love a quick upgrade game? That very first death came as something of a surprise (as I'm sure it does to most folks), but that's all the time it takes to catch on. Just upgrade, upgrade, upgrade! Then find a weapon and upgrade that, too. The graphics and animations work well in this cartoon style, which all felt very appropriate for the title. The music was pretty cool, too. My one and only issue is that I played through the entire game, start to finish, and never earned a single medal. Ah, it goes. You might want to check that out for future players.

Also, to anyone who thinks that this game is nigh unbeatable, think again. After learning the pattern of the end boss, it's not actually that difficult to avoid every single shot. Then again, maybe that's easier for someone who's played a lot of Bullet Hell shooters. Anyway, I completely disagree that the upgrades are insufficient for beating the boss. There's a really easy way to shave a lot of time off the clock, for one thing. And by using the jump and shoot technique when the boss tries to crush you, it should be quite possible to take him out in three waves.

I actually like the fact that you can play this game in different ways!
