Raider: Episode 2

Author Comments

The second instalment in the series; it carries on from the first.

As before, it is designed to be a difficult, challenging, retro-style platformer reminiscent of the NES or SNES days, back when games were hard and finishing them was a reward in itself that not everyone could even do.

Please try to enjoy it for what it is instead of dismissing it for what it's not.

You may encounter a strange bug where the keys act 'sticky' and you move even when they're not pressed... THIS ONLY HAPPENS WITH INTERNET EXPLORER. Use another, better browser and the problem won't occur.

I like Episode 2! I'm sorry about cancelling series. :(

Looks like a SNES

Very fun game. A little frustrating at times but I'd rather be challenged then play something horribley easy. And this was not sir, well done. I thoroughly enjoyed this game. Loved the graphics as well. Great work. And I couldn't stop until I completed it. Thanks for sharing this game and please make more. More !!!


Congrats for Daily 5th, I guess

I was kind of confused by this game at first. I thought it was going to be a game where you controlled a spaceship given the opening cut scene but it was quite different. I probably would have liked it more if it was a game like that, but this was still good. The really cool thing was how good the graphics were. It had a wonderful feeling of classic pixellated games. Parts of it were hard, especially the part in the tutorial where you used the Shift+A combination.

I did not understand how that even made a difference! Luckily, I could just start all over. It was nice with how you allowed the player to try again after falling on the ground. Granted, you still lost health by being exposed to the spikes, but there's been worse. You REALLY have to work with jumps on this as without them you're dead. Not the most elaborate, but still well detailed.
