Retro Runner Remix

Location: Seattle, WA outside Nintendo of America HQ
Scene: Two young game developers try their luck with the big N, only to be turned away for older, more "mature" devs. Despondent, the duo take shelter from the rain in a nearby back-alley. One of them spies what appears to be an old-NES cart beside a dumpster. Odd, they think, but pick it up anyway. There are no markings of note on the cart, yet an odd aura emanates from within: Glory.

After many sleepless nights, the pair finally cracked the algorithm securing the ROM. What awaited them that fateful night, now awaits YOU!

Play through an old NES-testing cart of levels "inspired" by your favorite games of yesteryear. Control an overly exuberant, slight floaty, mystery character and navigate these worlds like never before. Unlock the mysteries of the cart with the developers as we release level packs each time more code is discovered. Race for the ultimate score to compete with everyone you've ever known.

Note: Please ignore any bugs that might arise during play sessions. This code is extremely fragmented and sometimes...interesting things can happen.

Nice! Maybe there's a reason why this won Stencyl Jam 2015. :)

PsychoVisionGaming responds:

Thanks for the kind words! We didn't quite win, but the honorable mention was a welcome accolade. :D

I had a quite a good time playing.

PsychoVisionGaming responds:

Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the support!

all this is is the 1st super mario bros. with different graphics and no enemies...ill give you half a star because the game works fine, but no more.

PsychoVisionGaming responds:

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the game. There are ten other non-SMB related levels in the game, albeit they are all inspired by old-school platformers, so it's not quite "all there is".

I love the direction you're taking with this game. I think it has great potential. I really enjoyed playing through the levels. Very reminiscent of my favorite platformers.

PsychoVisionGaming responds:

Very glad you enjoyed the game! Thanks for such high praise. :)

Very cool game,I know your trying to make this game challenging but you should make it less slippery,like the way you stop but it takes another 0.25 seconds to stop,it make's it less enjoyable

PsychoVisionGaming responds:

The character is meant to control like a cross between Luigi and Toad from Super Mario Bros. 2. It definitely was a cognizant design decision on our part, but thanks for the feedback nonetheless! Glad you enjoyed it!
