Ripple Dot Zero is a classic action platformer heavily influenced by the aestethics of the 16-bit era of the early The game features 20 Levels of running, bouncing, slashing and Gyro-Blade-throwing, set to the slick beats of an original soundtrack of pure fm-funk schmaltz. Even the sound effects where made with FM-synthesis to give the game that sharp sting of early gaming.

Most amazing online game I've played in a long time.

The game feel and level design are both superb.

The Beginning:
From the opening credits appearing periodically throughout the first level (Genius move! Why don't other games try that?), and then the title logo coming together in the background as you run past it, you had me hooked.

The Middle:
The background graphics are stunning. The powerups are very satisfying to collect and use. The level design is great! The secret areas (and how they're part of the HUD), the collectibles, unlocking the rescue missions, finding the ALTERNATE EXITS to get HIDDEN LEVELS (I found 4)! Is there anything you DIDN'T think of?

The Endgame:
There was no epic boss fight, which may leave some players disappointed, but I didn't mind it personally. The last level did feel really cool, regardless. And the ending cinematic was just as breathtaking as the background graphics are.

So, in total, you blew me away with this game! I got all the achievements, and got 4 or 5 stars in each level.

I would LOVE to see similar platformer games from you and your team. :D

@ Varaha.. You can change controls and set em up as you please on the menu. Simply by pressing enter on the control you wish to change. Anyway, I loved this game. This is the kinda game I'd pay to play, graphics and music are great, amazing job on the gameplay as well. Way to go :D

Once again... A game without implementing the Z key... Is it really so hard to program the game that way, to make it playable for people in Europe?

I for one loved this game. The music makes you feel right at home with retro Sonic and Bugsy type Platformers. The controls were solid and I just adore this game. Great job!! (o^.^)-b
