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

The controls are terrible! Constantly trying to jump over gaps only to have the jump key be completely unresponsive, which is a pretty key-mechanic of a 2d platformer. It became worse when trying to sprint and jump, and more reoccuring that the jump mechanic would just not exist.

This game is fun, addictive, and holds all of the fun challenges from yesteryear of 8 Bit gaming. This is a must own for anyone that played on the original 8 bit to even the 16 bit games.
