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


Here we have yet another strange game. I actually found this one to be rather enjoyable. It's mostly because it's truly unique. It gives you a lot of room to make your own strategies. I don't know why a ghost would able to pass through wood but not other things. I just find it funny how the life potion looks like a Kool-Aid glass.

The sounds are fairly decent as well. I just think the overall layout is cool, particulary with the godlike entity as the narrator. I thought I just died at first and had to start the whole level all over. Come on, I can't be the only one who thought of that? While it has nothing to do with the holiday, Happy Valentine's Day!

fairly appropriate difficulty although more expert rooms would be nice. this was an awesome game. thank you

I Just love the whole game. The real puzzle in everything is always just figuring out how to get the grapefruit. Besides all that I just gotta say that the music later in the game is just perfect with the ominous setting.

I've now added the music from the game's later levels to the Audio Portal, if that's interesting. It's credited on the left side of the page as "[Revive] - Obtrusion".

Thank you very much for the supportive words, it means a lot!

Everything about this game is amazing.

A fun game, really addictive.
How do you get the grapefruit in level 2?
