Raider: Episode 1

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Raider: Episode 1 is the first in a series of five platformers, consisting of a single level each. The levels are long, however.

This game is designed to be reminiscent of 'old-school' games which those of us old enough to remember playing them as children might find nostalgic.
It is designed to be CHALLENGING. Only the best players will be able to achieve the fabled S ranking for their performance. Can you?!/

Controls are specified in the game. They can also be customised from the How to Play screen.

PLEASE try Beginner mode if you're not great at platformers or if you find the other difficulties to hard and frustrating. It removes many of the most irritating aspects of the higher difficulties. Please do not complain that the game is too hard if you haven't even tried Easy mode.

NOTE: It seems that playing this in Internet Explorer results in some strange input-related problems, where the keys seem to 'stick' or something. You shouldn't really be using IE anyway; it's a notoriously bad browser.

Overall I like this game. I think its fun. Good music....Oh and i can't wait for Mardek chapter 4!

Pretty good

This is definitely one of my favorite platformers but i like your other games better. While it was difficult i still got 7min 32 seconds on intermediate but it was frustrating.


Ok first off, let me say that its clear that you put a ton of work into making this, and I salute you for that. It's an incredibly fun game, and very well made. My one problem with it (why you didn't get a 10) was that it was extremely frustrating at some points. I understand that it was meant to be challenging, but one or two more purple checkpoints would've done wonders to make it more enjoyable. As it is, I was only able to get through it on beginner. Also, the last boss was the perfect difficulty, in my opinion... I just wish getting to him had been a tad easier

Solis old school platform

I agree with everything burning train said.
I got excited at the start of the game, but as the game wore on it became very clunky.
I enjoyed it until that point,
