Just Updated

The new level pack for “Adventures of Shuggy”, “Shuggy’s Teleporting Troubles” is now available on Steam. This new set of 40 single player levels provides a fresh challenge by throwing double teleporters into the mix as well as combining the teleporter with other mechanics from the main game such as level rotation, zombie Shuggy, floaty jump, rope swinging and multi-Shuggy. The level pack is included as part of the main game so it’s free for everyone who already owns it.

About This Game

Shuggy has just inherited a castle full of goblins, ghouls, zombies, and robots. Help him clear out over 100 rooms to make his new home liveable again! Every room in the castle is different, letting Shuggy fly, float, swing, spin, change size, time travel and more as he explores the Dungeon, Boiler Room, Clocktower, Gallery, and Graveyard.

Key Features

  • Co-op play - Play 36 twisted two-player levels in the offline co-op mode, with puzzles that can only be completed through cunning and teamwork.
  • Non-linear map screen - Multiple routes through the castle ensure you'll be able to find another route if you get stuck.
  • Boss encounters - Use your wit and cunning to defeat the dastardly bosses in each area of the castle.

Adventures of Shuggy
10 / 10

A Great 2D platformer.... Really good mechanics that will work your brain.... Rotating worlds, learning to simultaneously use 4 different versions of controls for individual characters... Time shifting.... this is BRAIN TRAINING at it's best.... and all in a Mario kind of way.... Gems, Cute little sounds for everything.... and it's gets tough, really tough....

I usually like really easy 2D platformers so that my brain can take a break between difficult Adventure games or Intense Shooters.... but this Platformer is really Great even though it is eventually hard.... it provides a great variety of game mechanics that will keep you interested....

Thanks to "The Man" for gifting this to me.... "SWOOSH"

Pretty decent puzzle platformer with alot of levels. I would have enjoyed it Alot more with a controller wasd didt really cut it for me, it was a bit unresponsive and levels are a bit small but variety trumps size in this game. Plus the Music is pretty catchy too.

I hate mosquitoes
Good puzzle platformer game. Adventures of Shuggy has a lot of levels with different mechanics to use. Depends of level you can rotate it, use rope for opening doors, use teleportation, use time travel, use potions to increase/decrease size of Shuggy and other. To complete level you need to collect all gems. This game has boss encounters.
But the most challenging thing in game for me was completing co-op levels solo. Since there is only local co-op you need a friend to do it on the same computer. I've decided to beat it by myself and complete it.
Also if you like challenges you can try to perform speedruns, each room has leaderboards, maybe you'll get on top of it.

This is a fun and cute little platforming game with great music and lovely backgrounds, and it has some challenging levels and interesting puzzles, the ones where you spin the room around the character are my favorite ones. The co op levels are a lot of fun as well, I played it with my friend on the same keyboard and had a lot of laughs.

I recommend this game to anyone that wants to relax with a light hearted game.

Highly recommended. Light and fun, easy to learn, easy to speedrun. Actually very fun to speedrun, though some of the mechanics don't lend themselves to it very well.

Something I am glad I put the time into.

Suprisingly fun game.
I went in with pretty low expectations and came out actually enjoying the game.
A really interesting platformer game despite what it may look like at first glance. Each level has an interesting mechanic, be it rotating the world to get to the next platform or to make a gem fall to you, avoiding obstacles.
Not as easy as you may think.

Keep in mind that this is a very hesitant recommendation. Adventures of Shuggy is a simple but challenging platformer that has a huge amount of levels for you to work through.

The controls are solid, sometimes feel a touch floaty but it's quite easy to adapt to. There's a good 20 to 30 levels per room, and you need to complete at least two-thirds before you gain access to the boss level and then unlock the next room. Each level has a gimmick associated with it; being able to rotate the entire level or sections of it, clones that spawn and carry out what you did within a specified time limit, rope machines that allow you to swing down and even up through levels, embiggening/shrink potions etc. They keep it fresh and as you advance you're expected to tangle with more complicated variants.

On a personal note I just got sick of the game; I loathe time-clone platforming and I am particularly awful at it ('sup Gateways!). It's probably best played in short bursts rather than trying to slog your way through in a single shot. There are better platformers around but this is certainly worth picking up on sale if you've run out of options.

Great game! Not too long and not too hard.
You can beat the CO-OP levels by yourself with a little time. (Thats what i did)
Granted i used Auto hotkey ONCE to help but yeah still. there were only 2 levels i had a really hard time on.
i THINK i saw an ad when i was exiting the game at one point.

Love it! very simple game with different types of levels that can pickly your brain a bit. Fair level in fustration sometimes when things don't go the way you want, which i personally love even more about it (who wants a game thats too easy and you just walkthrough). Will play again as a casual game to play from time to time again when i want to solve those little rooms again.
Would recommend it to anyone who likes a not to hard enjoable challenge.

Adventures of Shuggy is an indie platformer that deserves to be more widely known. It has a lot of content. At release, there were already a single-player campaign and a few dozens of co-op levels, but a free DLC was added that adds new single-player levels. All in all, there are almost 200 levels to play through (156 solo and 36 co-op).

Overall, the difficulty is well managed; some levels will prove to be challenging but none are impossible to beat. I was rarely frustrated by my failures as they were never due to a broken mechanic but rather to errors on my part. Level completion is timed, so you can compare with other players through online leaderboards. It took me about ten hours to complete the single-player levels.

As for the art, the visuals are cartoony and well-done. Cutscenes are present in the form of comic strips which complement well the game's graphics. The music is enjoyable, though it becomes repetitive by the time you've completed the game.

TL;DR: Buy this game, given the price you don't have much to lose.

Aside from those minor complaints, The Adventures of Shuggy is a superb 2D platformer deserving of a much wider audience. Smudged Cat Games have created a game with heart, intelligence and a mansion-load of well-applied ideas.You'll get their money's worth and more with this game. A puzzle/platformer that's not only challenging and addicting, but also adorable, Adventures of Shuggy is a title that gamers of any age and ability are sure to enjoy.If you're a fan of games like Super Meat Boy and you're looking for some interesting twists to the platforming genre, The Adventures of Shuggy is worth checking out. Smudged Cat's first entry in the big leagues is a promising start, and has me excited for the studio's next project.A short campaign is the only downside of this otherwise amazing platformer.

Puzzle platformer with a good amount of variety per puzzle room/level. It's an easy pick up for genre fans.

Just a nice fun game that has some nice challenges and doesn't get too frustrating either, can't not help but like it just like it's nifty mini vampire protagonist.
