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.

A good strategy game, but it gets repetitive after a while.

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.

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.

Simple platformer game. Nothing special here.
At first you might enjoy playing it but later it will be getting repetitive.
If you want to enjoy this game, you have to play it casually.

Classic 2D puzzle platformer. It's a nice game for those who like puzzle platformers, but it's not very innovative in it's gameplay.

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.

The game is pleasant and fun. I recommend it for everyone who like puzzle platformers. The game looks gorgeous, there are many levels and unlocking every single achievement might be tricky.

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.

I got this game from a free key and am glad. I would not have been happy paying for this.
The game isn't incompetently terrible or anything, but it lacks focus and originality. The only really original thing in the game is the rope which has some pretty interesting uses, but I would have been really happy if they had built a game around that mechanic and explored it deeply.

BUT ANYWAY.

Every aspect of this game feels thrown together fairly without thinking about the other parts. There are a variety of level mechanics that are in the game, but they don't seem to tie to anything beyond what the designers wanted to make that level about. The visual design is not bad but basically is just a pasted-on theme on the same kind of levels. Level progression is weird and unclear - finishing levels unlocks other levels, but there's no real clarity on which levels will be unlocked next, nor is there a sense of progression necessarily. One level might be extremely hard, but it might unlock a very easy level. Some levels are challenging only because they are incredibly long and, since one hit kills, you have to redo the entire level when you die, which can be tedious. (there are maybe three or four levels I can think of that stand out as poorly designed this way)

The music and sound effects: again, just functional, but for some reason there is a sound when your character lands (I finally figured out what that noise was!), the gem-collecting sound is exactly the same every time, no modulation at all, and the music is mostly in tune with the game, but one particularly goofy-sounding song (the main theme in fact) just did not seem to fit at all. I would not be at all surprised if the songs were just public-domain tunes that they used because they were free. (still nothing WRONG with that, just a more effective use would be nice).

The controls are kind of floaty too. I mean, I think that's intentional because you have a cape and that's kind of floaty (also this is a mechanic later, surprise surprise) but sometimes momentum seems off, and lets not even start on the different sized characters.

One last note - if you don't do the levels in the order they want you to, you might show up in a level with a mechanic you're not yet familiar with and have to figure it out yourself. Not too bad really, but poor design nonetheless.

I mean, there's nothing that really makes this game exceptionally bad, but nothing that makes it very good either, and in fact I feel like it turns out to be less than the sum of its parts, simply because it is put together in such a way as to feel disconnected and just bland.

I don't really know why I finished all the levels. I guess getting it for free makes me feel some kind of obligation or something. Whatever. I would say that if you have to pay money for it, pass.

Steering with WSAD in platformer is a bad idea.
It's even worse idea when after going to menu navigation switches back to arrows.
And then there's this AD for zombie game when you try to quit.
Meh.

So much waiting!
Wait on a switch so Past Shuggy can push it for you.
Wait for the Shmu to get to the cages.
Wait for Shuggy's friends to hold down switches.
Wait for the platform to take you to the goal.
and on top of all the waiting if you get hit by an enemy or hazard once you die and have to restart the entire level which most of the time means more waiting and the worst part is that you can't kill enemies so you will die often!

don't get this game. it's a waste of time.
