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.

so GOOD! two quick gripes; sometimes the spacing in between box and platform can be a little annoying, and on the bonus 1up lvl the music either cut out or just wasn't there. Those things can easily be overlooked with how good this game is. some beautiful art, amazing music, custom controls(BIG bonus) and just great use of space, not HAVING to explore the whole level but wanting to is really cool. (One more little gripe, having to play the lvl over again and over just to get to the ripple free part is a little tedious, but I think it is true to to the retro style and i'm just being a wuss). again great game.

A little more polish, bug fixes, and more levels, and I would pay for a game like this. Maybe even as a game written in C/C++ instead. At the very least, the graphics and music would be worth funding to become open-source on a crowdfunding site. Consider it and ask around, take some polls. My opinion anyway. Amazing game, graphics, music, gameplay and all.

Man, pretty much this game is an amazing, original tribute to classic Sega games from the 16-bit era!
It's kind of like a mash-up of Sonic and Strider, with a hint of Earthworm Jim. I love the jazzy soundtrack, it keeps you moving and wanting to continue playing.
The only thing this amazing game is missing is medals, but that's just a minor, minor gripe of course.
Thanks for making this gem, and I hope you make more like it in the near future!

Great game. Definitely 5/5.

There is a bug tho. It fails when loading the bonus stage on the second level saying it cannot find bonus_simon.swf or something like that. Please fix if possible.

That was not good. A quick test and it seems to work fine for me.
