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 4 / 5 stars

This is a fun upgrading game. The graphics and controls are great. The medals work. I earned them all. Keep up the good work. Will there be a sequel?

Great game! Basing the game around the upgrade system was a great idea and generally gave the game a good feel of balance to it. What I enjoyed the most was the art style, it was very cartoony and very well done. I would love to see a Johnny Upgrade 2: The Revengence of Extremlier Upgrades! hahaha (no but actually)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Wow, I had no idea this game was going to be so much fun! It's really cool because it reminds you of those games were you have to slowly get medals in order to keep on going. Granted, this wasn't exactly like that, but still a very good game. The graphics are very nice. It's so satisfying when you finally find out how to get to the boss the easy way. It's a lot more graphic than those Mario games where he died when the time ran out.

It's a short game, but that is definitley the point. I appreciated the nice designs of the enemies, what few there were. It would be awesome if you made this into a longer game! I love how everything just whisks around the screen so well and it's so fun to see stuff get blown up. This is a good way to learn how to save your money. The boss was nicely designed too.

Hmmmm sounds like someone below might not understand the point of an upgrade game! ;) Of course the game has some flaws, but there's a REASON you need to upgrade ammo and timer before fighting the boss :)

It has some good things like short cuts you can use if your skills are high. Also I like the idea you had. Also how good your person looks.That where it's ends sadly when you start a upgrade game not the best idea to have 0 control of your person at the start. I mean if your person doesn't know how to move that's just plain out sad. Also you should to say that there no ammo in the lvl so stack up. Or have some ammo at the boss fight. Would have saved me some failed boss attempt. Also the boss fight is way to long if it takes over 1min to get an opening that's way too long. Also the timer must be turned off when you start the boss fight other wise you'll die from time if it's not high. Also can you make the boss appearing take less time. I personally don't like waiting 20-30secs for the boss to fully appear.
