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: youtube.com/watch?v=VfVUZ hMHp-E


Nice game, some levels are really hard but that's what has to got to be in a puzzle game, :).
The story was sad but still very entertaining. I'm not a fan of platform games but you still deserve 5 stars for this awesome work!

Amazing game, really good work

The concept for this game was unique and enjoyable, 8bit style and music was a nice touch. I would give a five but the controls became much too sticky near the end. I am using IE (yes i kno its a terrible browswer but my Chrome is having issues atm) and i know you can double tap the key that stuck to get it back to normal but it was still annoying.
Overall, enjoyble game had to get all the grapefruits! c:

You made a game for the sake of a pun. Well done.

JonBro responds:

I didn't even think about the pun until I was almost done with the game, but when I did, it suddenly had to be in the game. I wish I could say I feel ashamed. XD

Very good game. Controls are flawless now that up key also jumps. Gameplay is smooth and sounds music is good.

You should consider putting text hints about muting sound and returning to main menu so that they are visible when playing, just like "Restart game with "R"" is visible in game. These hints are now in main menu, but at least I missed them at first.

Here are Youtube links to walkthroughs I made for Expert Rooms and Time Trial.
