The C&F Inc. teleporters are going offline all over the place, and it's up to an intrepid frog employee to fix the situation.

You are a bipedal frog and a master of the Custodial Sciences, charged with the unenviable task of ridding your company's teleporters of strange black creatures.
Fight for your life through a menagerie of unique monsters while getting your hands on exciting new tools of the trade.

On October 11th, the newest upgrade of Kero Blaster was released on Playism; "Kero Blaster ZANGYOU Mode". With more stages than the original and a whole new mode and story, Kero Blaster is ready to take on Steam.
November 11th brings the latest version of Kero Blaster to Steam, including Kero Blaster ZANGYOU Mode.

cave story was your unrelenting personal trainer that wouldn't accept a sub-par performance. kero blaster is your friend, and he won't go too easy on you, but above all he just wants you to have a good time and give you a nice pleasant sweater that'll protect you from harm

VERY short. I played through the entire game in just barely over two hours. It's a lot of fun and the music, gameplay, and artwork all have the charm I've come to expect from Studio Pixel. For $10 (or $6) I paid on sale I still think it's a worthwhile playthrough especially if you liked Cave Story. It should also be noted that this is a purely linear game, it is in no way a Metroidvania like Cave Story was. Still very fun but if that's what you're hoping to play look elsewhere.

Neat focus on weapon switching and guns interacting with level design, as you would expect from Pixel.

Decent game, a bit too hard. The controls are honestly awful. To switch shooting directions, you have to stop firing, change directions, and then start firing again. Some parts of the game become incredibly have because of the broken controls. As someone else said, it feels like you are constantly moving underwater, or sliding on ice. The movement and controls are both pretty awful.

Otherwise, the music, graphics, and level design are all very nice. I'd say it's worth the money if you can look past the awful controls.

This is a fun, sweet, cute little shooter! I recommend checking out Pink Hour, also by the same dev, to see if you'll like the gameplay. It's very much the same, albeit it has more to it like 4 weapons, with multiple upgrades each. Sometimes in Cave Story, by the same developer, you kinda felt like you should have jumped when you didn't. I didn't have that problem at all with this title. The only thing I wanted that it didn't have was the ability to shoot directly down, but the levels don't ever make it so you actually need to be able to do this. Heavily recommended if you like a bit of fun run and gun that doesn't last too long but leaves you feeling satisfied.

This is a great game, and I'm going to recommend it because I want to support studio pixel.


BUT. GOD. DAMN. IT. It is 2016. Why am I downloading Joy2Key so I can use a 360 controller properly? This is ridiculous- and if this game was made by any other studio I'd thumbs-down it on principle.

NEXT GAME: CONFIGURABLE GAMEPAD PLEASE. THANK YOU.

Kero Blaster is a fairly short but enjoyable platform-shooter game, with straightforward levels and upgrades. Rather than compare Kero Blaster to its creator's previous game, I think it would be better to say that this game is on its own a fun experience. Music, aesthetic, and story are all pleasant. Each gun felt useful in its own way and platforming controls worked well. Levels are straightforward and linear so there's not much in the way of exploration nor choices to be made, but thats how the game is.

Its about 3 hours long or less on a single playthough, with extra challenge in a hard mode that I did not try. I believe this extra mode adds to the story somewhat as it plays like a sequel where you revisit the levels again, but again I can't say as I didn't play through it. All in all an okay game, maybe a bit pricy at $10 if you want something to sink a lot of time into. I'd recommend it still, it was fun to play.

Kero Blaster is great. Simplistic but stylish visuals, pleasant music, nicely polished.

On average I'd consider it to be a little more forgiving than Cave Story, unless you desire to take on the various challenge modes that the game offers.

If Cave Story was Metroid, Kero Blaster is Contra.

Completely linear, your objective is always to get to the end of the stage to fight a boss, and then do it all over again on the next. Next to no backtracking or branching paths, but there are a few hidden areas that reward you with money or extra lives. Checkpoints happen on almost every single screen transition, so deaths don't set you back too far nor do you need to remember to hit up a save point. However once you run out of lives, you're sent back to the start of the level, but you get to keep all of your money. So some of the harder bosses get eaiser on multiple tries, since you have more money for better upgrades each time you attempt it.

As for an actual review, it's easy to tell the game was first made for a touch device, with the slightly awkard shooting controls. When you hold fire down, you lock your view to that direction, but can still move freely. After a stage or two it starts feeling normal. The first playthrough is fairly easy, with a few annoying boss fights, but the second playthrough "ZANGYOU" (Overtime) is where the real difficulity is at. The second time through all of the stages get tweaks to their layout, while still keeping the overall shape of the area the same. All of the weapons feel like they have some use, which is good since there aren't many even with the upgrades.

While there's not as much character development or plot as Cave Story, there's still plot and dialog between stages, and the 2nd playthrough has its own as well. However if you enjoyed Cave Story for its music, Kero Blaster does not dissapoint. Overall, if you're into run-and-gun platformers, its a fun game to play through, worth the base $10 to me.

Pink Hour and Pink Heaven are both demos for Kero Blaster.
