Battle your way through 4 dark underground caverns and find the Platform to Heaven. Use your skills (you have skills, right?) to overcome one challenge after another. Many things are out to get you, from spikey fortifications to weird popping tennis ball things.

Collect the orange crystals within each cavern to gain up 5 extra lives.

A/D or ARROW KEYS to move left and right
SPACE to jump

If you're running the Windows version and have an Xbox 360 controller to hand, you can use that instead.

Made in 4 days for Platformer Week and WGJ #86

Awsome game love it and hate it at same time it reminded me of me playing mega man for the first time! great job

very nice... please, new levels.. hehehe.. ;)

Watch Minijam 22 + BYOG from Tiger_J on

I don't know if this was intentional, but the last level was intense! I finished with zero lives remaining, which was so damn nerve racking. Awesome game, nice graphics and mechanics. Lovely music too!

How did you manage to get a clean pixel camera follow and movement. Attempting to do this at the moment but keep getting jittery pixels?

Defold doesn't have any tearing issues. I take it you're referring to Unity? Check out the 2D Pixel Perfect camera for that.

Love the music and gameplay. Player jumping didnt register a few times, but apart from that great job

♡ฅ(ᐤˊ꒳ฅˋᐤ♪) Love the music, graphic and controls. I like how easy it was for level 1, but the fustrating part awaits hahaha.

Sorry about the shrunk screen! Was a bit out of it from sickness, and should have remembered the stream had this problem with Driller as well. >.>

Watch 8 Bits to Infinity ~ Platformer Week | !queue !faq from MrJoshuaMcLean on

Liked the art, the three first levels were not that difficult, but the last level is insanely hard xD What could be improved here is telling the player that you got to a checkpoint, and maybe my volume is too low, but I didn't hear music. Great game keep it up!

Great game. At the beginning I thought "5 extra lives, that seems like a bit much"... cut to 2 levels later..."I've picked up every crystal and I still might run out of lives." Awesome work.

Hard and fun Nice Game Ben xD!

Wow! Really nice game! I'd like to let you know that my company wants to collaborate with you and this game! With that I mean that we want to fund updates in the future and do some bug fixing. Your game is going to be played a lot more! Just let us know what you think!

I reaaally love the art of the game , the tight controls of the character and the soundtrack, also the U.I looks beautiful. Very awesome!
