About This Game

Do you have fond memories of playing old style platform games, where you didn't have to learn a hundred button combos to play it successfully? Canyon Capers is just for you if that's the case.

Canyon Capers is a retro style arcade platform game for all ages, created by the authors of the 1992 original.

Starring DinoJr and his many friends as they venture through the canyons and caverns of ancient ruins in historical locations, to reach the ultimate goal, retrieval of the Golden Mollusk, source of all universal power and a mighty fine trophy at that.

With a finely tuned difficulty curve, from nice and easy, all the way to rock hard, just like old school platforming used to be. Canyon Capers will make you rely on your wits, your memory and at times, seat of the pants twitch gaming.

This game shouldn't exist.
Thanks for the free 9 cents that the cards are worth though.

Dislcaimer: This game has nothing to do with canyons nor caping

Seriously, this game is a disgrace. You're an eleven year old boy that jumps on snakes that fart when they die and when you get hit, it sounds like a fourty year old is motor-boating his wife. You also need a VERY high end pc for the realistic graphics quality...
The only reason why you would get this game really is because you can get easy trading cards although I'd rather find another way.
This game is only usable as a torture method, I'd rather suck D**K than playing this game.

A few months ago, i got this game for free. I am legitamately depressed by even seeing it in my steam library. The game is horrible. Neverless with the steam badge named "hairy cup" WTF. really. this makes me uncomfortable, and the game itsself is not worth 6 dollars. Like...really. Id rather play bad rats than this asinine game. Its just UGH! the controls suck donkydick, and the music is annoying. i tried muteing it once, and it crashed my computer. Keep in mind i have a very decent computer. 0/10 Dont buy this, even for free. (i see this in my hidden folder and feel pain knowing that this is the game thats in it.)

Nope nope nope nope nope. This game is awful in every way.

On the other hand, the first badge is called "A Hairy Cup".
