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

Amazing game! Great job, reminded me of portal. Keep it up! :D


Rated 5 / 5 stars


I was about to give this game a 3.5 star rating, when I noticed what seemed like a second exit in level 20. I left through this door, before even finishing the "bad" way. All I expected was another 2 or 3 levels, giving some back story and extra challenge for explorers.
Boy, was I wrong! I loved how you managed to roughly double the content in this mere hidden path. The new mechanics in the second half also worked together nicely.
Now, all that's left for me is to keep shaving off time in time-trial mode to get that last badge.

@ JonBro:
I also encountered the "freeze/stick"-bug. Interestingly enough, it only seemed to come up after about the first third or half of the game and apparently increased in frequency during the last few levels. Might be due to the long play-time though (had the game open for almost 3 hours). When I played time-trial, there also were freezes in the earlier levels.
What exactly happened was this: directly after pressing left/right and/or up, the game would freeze, for between a few millisecond and one or two seconds. Though it was always the whole game that got stuck, never only my controls (timer and bg music stopped for these intervals).
Concerning my specs:
I'm running Google Chrome in its newest update (25.0.1364.152).

@ Nakrull:
I managed to get my fair share of fun and challenge out of this great free game.
One mustn't always expect another SMB or VVVVVVV in a new flash-platformer ;)

A solid puzzle/platformer. You can't ignore the instincts to compare it to Portal, however it's only somewhat similar because of being force to become a test subject and the 'evil' faceless guiding force.

I found this fun and challenging, not to mention trying to gain the grapefruits AND finish the level the way you think it should be completed. I can't find glaring faults with your game, perhaps it could be improved graphically but I quite like the retro appeal. Your controls are straight forward and the game, generally speaking, isn't complicated to the point that get bored or frustrated.

Great job.

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
