Revive is a pixelated puzzle platformer in which you defy death, define life, and jump in puddles of syrup.

It is also a spiritual successor (in more ways than one) to a game of mine called Respawn.

Man, this project started small and snowballed into something more complex and personal over time. Four months of care were put into Revive's design, so without giving too much away, I hope you enjoy the ride.


Also, let me know if you find any glitches anywhere, and I will address them when I can!

[List of Fixes]
The Time Trial Run medal point value has been increased, slight changes have been made to the controls (such as pressing UP to jump), the collision detection on forks has been improved, and a couple of problems with the main menu are now gone.

I've heard the controls stick for some people. Not sure what would cause this, so if anyone can provide more details about this (like when it happens, what browser you're using, etc.), let me know.

A video walkthrough is now available: hMHp-E

Incredible Game.
While others thought that It was a portal clone, like you said in one of your replies, not many games are unique plot-wise e.g. save the princess from the evil monster.
While one game can set up a plot-genre as I would call it, Doing a similar game does that necessarily make it bad that is unless its replicated down to the smallest detail and even that, some times that is done on purpose e.g. spoof.
The game in itself is a good combination between easy and challenging, several of the levels were confusing until *ding* I figured out how to win the level.
Retro-ish graphics while still being relatively new. Gets creepy after level 20.
While I still can't quite understand the ending maybe I am just over-analysing it.
Great Game 5/5

That last pun was horrible. It should be taken out, shot, hung, and left to freeze in a blizzard. That pun should be against the Genova Convention.

Glad to see Newgrounds hasn't forgotten about puzzle games. This one gave me a challenge.

This game is fantastic. It's basically 2 games in 1 -- without grapefruit and with grapefruit. Some of these room designs are just pure genius. And if you can get all 19 grapefruits, the two "expert" rooms are relatively easy.

But I can't beat time trial to the best of my ability, and for that I probably have my slow computer to blame. Movements are significantly slower in rooms with syrup streams flowing down. This makes Room 13, the most time consuming room, even more time consuming. On one go I didn't make a mistake at all and ended up with a time close to 4:30. And believe me, I've optimized pretty much everything -- stacking 2 crates to push together to save time, pushing crates JUST far enough to use as platforms to jump on, sneaking through Room 12 without having to die, and so on. And I already played the game on mute, closed all other tabs/programs. And I tried both Chrome and Firefox. Couldn't do it.

Music is also fantastic. I thought having the "Command" song on steriods during the time trial was a really nice touch.

Now if you'd excuse me, I'm going to wrap this up and go play Respawn.
