A short platformer made for the NESjam over at Gamejolt.

Arrow keys to move
Z to jump
X to shoot once you collected THE POWER

I should mention that SN2083, to me, is less of a game than it is an attempt to create a specific atmosphere. It's short and won't be a challenge for anyone who's played platformers before, but I hope that if nothing else, it takes you back to picking up a rental cartridge one weekend because the box art looked MEGARAD and then you played a weird thing that made no sense but you were completely immersed in being a space person blasting aliens while arguing with your friend if it was a dungeon or a space fortress.


It was a fun game to play, but it was most definitely too short for me. I suppose I don't really feel that atmosphere that much though. Still just another game to me, and a rather short one.

I would love to see this developed into a more complete game. It wasn't half bad for a retro. However, my one complaint: Don't make the X button the only way to jump. It makes things dang confusing and difficult. I found myself cursing the up button, like why the hell won't you jump?

As I said month ago. FP needs better games.
I did not like this much because I don't like most modern games made like retro.
But you have to agree with me because this game is so short it's more like a demo of the game.

boy... this takes me WAAAY back to my old NES gaming days xD which aren't all that far back really, mind you, heheh. i'm just glad it got the front page or i wouldn't have found something so nice looking and the music is really appropriate i find =D

i hope there's a bigger project being put in development for this. it'd be really great to see a full fledge game of this platformer.

tweo point five stars for the music. Thats all.
