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

Better than Portal. Congratz!

Gameplay is quite fun! Like many others I was put off/bored by the Portal-esque plot:

"Welcome [test subject], this is [evil computer]. Please proceed through [level]. No, what are you doing! You can't go to [harder level], it's off-limits!"

This is becoming a cliche' in puzzle platformers.

Well, what isn't a cliché these days? There's a lot more to the plot than that. Still, I appreciate the review!

The concept with all the subject thingy-thing is not all THAT new, but the overall concept of killing you and being revived by a serum... I mean syrup is quite original. Nice 8-bit-esque artstyle, which totally fits in with the music (which is actually nice but a bit repetitve after some time (it actually sounds MUCH better as a audio file than ingame...well whatever)).

Overall nice game (its something else at least not the usual riddle school thing XD) with some downsides on the (somehow) stiff gameplay and the overused theme (as in sushin00's review)

Keep up the good stuff!

The gameplay is solid with some great level design, although I personally don't enjoy this genre.
However, I was put off by the way, way over-used "cruel science experiment" plot attempt.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

the puzzles in this game are very creative and challenging. not to mention you did all of the art, programming, and music yourself? bravo!
