The look of this game makes people think it's simple or childish, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Whether you are a casual gamer that just wants to enjoy a fun game with a good story, to a hardcore gamer who prefers roguelites and rage-quitting, this game has you in mind!

tl;dr / quick review
Super Panda Adventures is a one of the best examples of the Metroidvania genre on Steam. It has solid mechanics, fluid and smooth controls, an excellent soundtrack, fun shoot-slash-and-jump combat, and is genuinely funny. Super Panda Adventures is different and really took me by surprise; so much so, that it has made my list of favourites PC games of all-time. I am not sure if it gets the attention that it deserves, but this is truly a genre-defining game.

With a slew of RPG elements in the game, you can level up your character all the way to Level 50 with several weapon, armour, skill and spell choices to make along the way. How you build your character ultimately affects how you play the game, and visa-versa! Along those lines, it has a a lot of stats to explore: HP, MP, Shield, Regen for MP, Crit, Melee damage, Magic damage, random-events skills like "Chance to gain 5 Hp when you attack an enemy," and shops to spend collected coins on items and potions!

Super Panda Adventures is simply one of the most under-rated and over-looked Metroidvanian games on Steam. If you like Metroidvania type games, you owe it to yourself to buy and play this game.

what's good
+ 8 to 12 hours of gameplay
+ Full controller support
+ Well-written and amusing dialogue
+ Adorably cute, deceptively challenging (at higher difficulty levels)
+ Varied, colourful and thought-out level designs that always keep it fresh
+ Many RPG elements for levelling up your character (up to Level 50!)
+ It's not a platformer--no platformer rage-quitting here!
+ Good for all skill levels (from Casual to Srsly Hardcore)
+ Level-up, gain new and significant powers, skills, magic, weapons, armour, and more
+ Character appearance changes based on selected weapons, amour, and skills
+ Excellent soundtrack--many purchase it after playing this game (myself included)
+ Hidden / secret rooms filled with treasures to find
+ Fluid, smooth, and superb-feeling controls
+ Suitable for all ages and skill-levels

what's not good
- Once a difficulty setting has been selected, it cannot be changed without restarting
- Sudden difficulty spikes (see note below)

gameplay tip
Difficulty can be a challenge, novices should play on Cakewalk or Easy which will provide a stress-free (not challenge-free) ride through this game. Only the hardcore should attempt anything above Cakewalk or Easy. That is to say, if you select Normal but it gets too hard 8 hours in, you will have to push through or start-over. I suggest a better-safe-than-sorry approach to this game. Difficulty spikes at several of the boss levels, but watching a youtbe vid can help with your strategy. :)

This panda is not truly super but hes more of a panda for that... what he is though, is a champion of justice we can all rally behind in this crazy topsy turvy world where one bamboo eating, kung-fu mastering and cute as the dickens ursine critter has to go against all the forces of evil that plague our world... I for one wish him well and shall aid him in his quest as best as I can.

Hope you can come along... if you dig a super adventure that is.

When I began playing Super Panda Adventures I didn't expect all that much, I judged the book by its cover and I'm here to tell you to not do the same. While this game (except the sound) was developed by one guy (who also did the dishes) I will not take it under consideration when recommending the game.

So what's this game all about? Well, it's a Metrovania platformer with RPG elements, the controls are tight and the Panda is naked, in the beginning. You level up and get skill points and also upgrade your weapons and armor. The story and dialogs are light and simple at first with a lot of silly humor, then the story becomes a little like "The Big Brother" without losing the humor of course. The combat mechanics are very good, you have two basic attacks (sword and shuriken) and a "magic" attack which uses your mana. The fights are challenging enough to keep you on your toes.

Final Verdict: Play only if you feel comfortable with Panda nudity!

I beat this game 7-9 months ago and when I just passed by this store page I think I should write down a bit my review because I think this game does deserve more attention. Some people might not be interested because the presentation, well the pixel art is not aesthetic, err.. but it's not bad, think it as 90s snes game -- and try not to compare it with modern pixel art and you'll be enjoying this game.

my eyes didn't enjoy the graphics , but my hands were still playing like there were something to keep me playing. I finished the game in a day, in less than 10 hours -- to be honest, I don't really remember the details of this game because I beat it long ago. I was looking for similar platfomer game like this and ended up on this page and I think I should recommend this game to others. The price of this game is just right, there are more games which are more expensive and offering better graphics but do not feel engaging. What I believe the most important thing from an action platformer is the control, and this game has it!

What i like the most of this game is the simplicity.. the level design is engaging, the design of weapon and level up system is very well balanced. The story for this game is not it's strongest point, but if you are action platfomer game dude, you should check this game out.

There's a lot of descriptions of the story, features, whatnot this game has; they're not helpful. Here's the important part: while Super Panda Adventures look like yet another indieshovelwarecashgrab on nostalgia for games that weren't that good anyway, it's an Actually Good Game.
Don't be fooled by the screenshots, it's not derivative of marios, sonics, yoshis and other animals of dubious genealogy and sinister genetics: this game is a cutesy little metroidvania all of its own. And it's fun as hell.
