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

it's the most acualy "hard" puzzle game i have ever seen, i mean sure if you get the key and head straight for the door it's a piece of cake, but try getting the grapefruit. it's so mindbending, you need good eyesight, planning, and platforming skill, those puzzle game companies are just crying at this masterpiece. good job jonbro. 5/5 rate submision, adding it to my favourites, and 5 full stars.

A novel concept, but all-in-all not enough to keep me interested for long.

JonBro responds:

Any idea how I could make things like this "enough to stay interesting"?

This game is absolutely outstanding. Probably one of the best games I've seen from you! Aside from the Riddle Games, of course!

I don't may or may not get these comments alot but I miss the Riddle games! I'm sorry..I know you have moved on and you didn't want to continue them for reasons I read about on your page...I just miss them thats all. I'm not asking you to start them up again...I'm just telling you how awesome they were. :)

BACK TO THIS GAME: I thought this game was extremely well thought out. I think the whole 8-bit theme was creative and I honestly couldn't see me enjoying this game any more if it were even the slightest bit changed...except for the grapefruit, which always annoyed me because at first I thought I was supposed to get them! :) Other than that, an overall wonderful game. Great job :)

An excellent game overall, with great gameplay, a good plot, and some great puzzles. The only criticism I have to offer is that there could be a 3rd ending, for completing the whole game, but without all of the grapefruits collected.

Holy shit, the sountrack asdfghjk. It's challenging and unique, with a plot that seems like a move. Enjoy making the first game I've given 5 stars to.
