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.

Worst game I've played in a while. It looks innocent at first but the difficulty gets out of control quickly. This game really is harder than Dark Souls, but it's mostly because of the time limit, horrible hit detection, and needing to run levels flawlessly to get enough stars to move on. Consider yourself a champion if you beat this game.

Canyon Capers is a floaty platformer with a timer, I hate timers! The controls are horrible, graphics are meh and the music is annoying. There is really only one good thing about this game, it has cards.
