“Canyon Capers is a real blast from the past, and especially in the memories for longtime players.”

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.


  • Simple to play, hard to master classic retro platform gaming
  • Full steam support... achievements, stats, leaderboards, and cloud support
  • Trading cards, emotes, backgrounds and badges to earn
  • 50 levels each with 3 levels of completion, each with many ways to complete... find your best path to fame and riches
  • Race to the end, collect all the items and unlock the unique bomb levels
  • Unlock new characters, each with their own unique abilities as you complete canyons and worlds
  • Tongue in cheek nods to your favorite classic retro games
  • Tons of secrets and collectibles

3. The sound effects.
4. The gameplay.
5. The fact that this got onto steam.

Pretty bad game, thankfully free for me. Graphics aren't "retro", they're plain bad, as they couldn't do anything better. It's as if they made some sort of Birdemic kind of deal, except in the form of a game. Music and especially SFX are annoying and there are gamebreaking bugs. It's like playing Mario, but with a deathwish, as that is what you're gonna be left with when you're done with this game. Why? Why the 6$ price tag, with a 2$ DLC?

>I'd give it a 2/10
>Pros: Game starts, cards and achievements
>Cons: Game breaking bugs, bad textures, horrible sound effects, lazy map design, horrible music, controls... just... ehhhh... the price taaaggg.... eeeehhhhhh... DLC.... EEEEEHHHHH

There's no escaping the bats.

I don't really like platformers that slide around & constantly having to correct mid-jump every jump, nor being time-limited & having to wait for sequences that are out of sync to come back into sync so I can move on, nor being spawned in-time to get hit every time I spawn.

Punishing.

Confusing textures, really annoying music, turned off the music right when I heard it for a few minutes. Levels were Mario style, got 3 stars in levels like Angry Birds. Levels aren't that bad, overall, if you keep up with the textures, they are fun to play. They could have made the game physics better, IMO.
Overall, enjoyable when you have time to kill. Not worth the money, but, not a bad game either.

Oh, it has Trading Cards which is nice, as well.

As soon as I turned on this game and saw logo, I knew it's gonna be bad. Main menu music only confirmed my supposition.

- graphic is awful, looks worse than on screenshots, I really think I saw better looking games on NES
- music is annoying
- jumping is a joke, you're never sure if you jump over to next platform or not
- oh, you didn't reach it? Run through whole level again
- and once you run the same path for the fifth time remember that you have limited time! Nice, isn't it?
- every level objectives are "collect tons of stuff and go to exit"
- enemies renew themselves after like three seconds
- using alt+tab will cause a serious technical problems making this game unplayable and almost impossible to shut down

Pros? I got it for free and got cards, including my first foil card.

Please, save yourself the time and don't play this game. Really.

I recommed this game because:
- It's very fun to play
- Need to be fast, but careful
- No blood, guns... ( recommended for kids )
- Many levels
- Unique and different missions...
- Doesn't get old after an hour of playing
- Caracters are very funny and cute

Game is recommended for kids on first place, but people (18-50) can play it too! :)

While I generally prefer 3D shooters and various kinds of puzzles games, where the use of a mouse for directional movement is emphasized, this particular 2D side-scroller seemed okay.

Can't comment on later levels but I hear they get pretty challenging...

Decent-looking 'trophy' badge, too.
