Who's 8BitBoy?



8BitBoy is out of a job, and quite frankly he's depressed about it. Then he suddenly remembers all the good times he had as a kid, playing his trusted 8-bit console. Deep down in the far and darkest corner of the basement he finds it along with a strange looking cartridge. He plugs in the cartridge right away, and get sucked into a vivid, but decaying world of platforming. And this is where your adventure takes off.

8BitBoy is the platformer I always dreamt about playing as a kid.

It's a fantastic mash-up of the greatest of the late 80's and 90's and a complete game on it's own terms. This is a true tribute to old school gaming and by no means a walk in the park, but it's also never unfair. With big challenges, the sense of accomplishment is always bigger and better.

To me, 8BitBoy is the ultimate classic platformer on PC and Mac. and a symbol of my love and passion for gaming.

Yours Sincerely,
Rasmus Kønig Sørensen
Indie developer and sole creator of 8BitBoy

There's not much to say about this game.
Yet another amazing 2D plaformer with oldschool graphics and music that not only fits well, but it's also fun to listen to.

Decent copy of Mario, but all it really makes me want to do is play Mario because it just feels like a flash game with too loose of controls.

This game carries with it a smooth and classic platformer style that is fun to play from now and again. Can get a little repepitive, but has its charm.
Love the fireball mechanic that offers a speedy way to travel against enemies and those pesky birds!

Perhaps the only thing that urks me is the long jumping mechanic. Perhaps it's just my keyboard acting up.

Overall: Fun, charming, unique

More like a Super Mario game style, brings back memories of childhood game. Lot of hidden coins, warp zone and more, tricky game.
