The game might not look that pretty on the first look, but it does capture you with its charm and depth if you spend some time with it. It's MetroVania done right with loads of unlockables that will make you revisit levels over and over again without it becoming tedious. The story is cheesy, but the characters really come to life through the dialogs. Some of the conversations made me laugh quite hard even. The soundtrack might not be for everybody, but I really enjoyed it. The levels are huge and really well designed. There's a lot to explore and the game rewards you for doing it.

It's a lot of fun for very small money :)

The fact that I am actually going out of my way to write a review about a game says a lot. Super Panda Adventure is an 2D action platformer with rpg elements. Think of it as if it where a 2d translation of legend of Zelda games; You'll find yourself revisting old levels with new abilities and accessing huge new portions of map that will advance the story and put you in contact with NPCs that will send you on quests.

You collect items that give you experience (although you do not automatically gain xp from every kill, just on item pick up.) and find special "Power Orbs" that you can use to upgrade your weapons and armor with an incresing cost per upgrade.

The rewards and upgrades are well spaced out and feel earned, making going back to take advantage of a new game mechanic that's been awarded to you that opens a huge new area of an already visited level very enjoyable. The level design is especially well done and the way the levels are sort of "wrapped around to reconnect" is often very clever and well hidden.

The game tries it's hand at humorous and is bit campy but it's absurd enough to be enjoyable. This is one of the best platformers I've played in qutie some time and I found myself blown away by how good this game turned out to be. Give it a try.4

Love it. It reminds me of a NES game, a good one though, a classic. The controls feel smooth and tight, you jump nicely, movement is responsive. Gameplay is a combination of questing, platforming and fighting. You level up and spend skill points, get items, relics, power ups and unlock new skills. The story line is great. I love this game. The only problem is when is the next one coming out?

9.99/10

This game is amazing. Cute art style, funny dialog, fun story, great soundtrack and the gameplay is a ton of fun.

Super Panda Adventures is an action platformer. You play as a Panda called Fu... bad guys appear kidnap a princess and its your job to rescue her... sound pretty cliche right. And it is, but the story is told in such a way it felt fresh.. at least for me it did! The game plays as a beat em up with various quest giving NPC around the world. Quest that (AFAIK) can be done in any order.
Its mostly fetching quest which have you go back and forward between levels unlocking new areas to explore within the levels. The levels are well designed and have some tricky(for me :P) to find areas in them.
You can gather XP from slain enemies or find them around the world. When you level up you get 2 point to spend on a variety of skills. Also you unlock skills and helpful items and upgrade your gear.
Its plays great with controller or keyboard. Platforming feels great... combat feels amazing...yeah.. I am trying to come up with something negative to say about this game... maybe its a bit too easy for some... but that is frankly the only thing i could think off

This game has been in multiple greenlight bundles.. but that does not do this game justice. Honestly Steam should be proud to have something like this in their store!
I haven't complete the game yet(I will!!) and from what i played the asking price is well worth it! You'll get so much content for 4 usd/eur. This game is a must own and it deserves your attention. For the bargain full price you can't go wrong, let alone when it on sale. There is no excuse not to give this a try! 10/10

EDIT: Just finished the game. And i CANNOT recommend this game enough. Just a small note apparently this game has difficulty settings... i started playing and just kept hitting A ( on a controller) and did not pay much attention (was not expecting much... boy was i wrong). I was playing on normal, there are 2 higher the difficulties. So forget the "maybe its a bit too easy for some" bit. And the bosses are not that easy anyway

Since I was a child with the SNES/Mega Drive, I would casually play platformers/metroidvania type games, but they never really captured my attention, and I had never finished one. 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. It is the first game in the genre that has me addicted and I had such a great time playing it (twice)! I am not sure if it gets the attention that it deserves, but this truly is a genre-defining game.

Tip: Difficulty can be a challenge, novices should play on Cakewalk or Easy. Only the hardcore should attempt anything above Normal.

Buy it, play it, and enjoy :)

(suitable for all ages)

Fun combat platformer with a good soundtrack, a nice pseudo 8-bit art style, and the tight controls you need for a game like this.

It also has some RPG elements in that you have quests to complete, which mainly come down to 'go to Area A and get item X' or 'talk to person Q'. You gain experience by picking up items or killing enemies, which can be used to enhance your perks.

I am really enjoying my time with this game. Definitely worth picking up!

This is one of the best games I've ever played.
I accidentally stumbled upon this game while I was looking for something featuring pandas, since my girlfriend absolutely adores them. The game looked interesting so I bought it for myself in order to try it out - and boy, was I surprised. Even though you can 100% complete the game in about ten hours, those ten hours feature pure entertainment. From the open world & world map (featuring two different worlds), experience gathering, levelling up and spending skill points on abilities, doing side quests for NPCs which often contain good humour, to cute graphics and light-hearted characters who actually point out some of the real-world problems and give the game great depth.
There, I mentioned some of the reasons I love this game, and there still remain some I haven't even touched. Upgradable weapons and armor, combo bonuses, awesome soundtrack...you name it. This game doesn't aim to be epic & humongous, but it still aims to be devilishly good in its humbleness, and it is.
The only negative thing I have to say about the whole thing is the fact that some of the game's bosses feature large difficulty spikes, especially the last boss. I think you'll always feel like the boss is one scale higher than the difficulty you're currently playing on (there are about five difficulties, if I'm not mistaken). But if you like to play on easy, then you should be able to beat it without any major issues.
So if you are still thinking about whether you should get it or not, go get it right away! The 4€ price is super small considering how good the game is, and this is coming from a guy with some serious budget issues. I got the game on a discount for 3€ and I feel like I ripped off the developer.
I seriously hope for Super Panda Adventures 2 or something like that.
Cheers! :)

Great, fun platformer with a seriously hilarious and fun story, some of the most memorable characters you'll ever see rendered in 2D sprites, a cuddly and adorable protagonist, and a great, well-functioning combat system.

This game is criminally underappriciated, do yourself a favor and grab it. For four bucks it's a steal, I got it on sale for 3 which is even moreso. Very long game too, a good 15 - 20 hours of content if you're wanting to grab it all, which I had so much fun with it I did.

Have I mentioned it's cute as can be? Because it is. It's a nice break from grim dark gritty brown-em-up games that I've been playing as of late on steam. This game even has good life lessons in it for the kiddies, and no, I'm not actually kidding or being sarcastic there.

Great game for the youngesters too, I'd imagine, minus a little bit of off-color humor but nothing I wouldn't have been able to handle at a younger age myself.

10/10, one of the highest recommends I can give a game on here.

See through the poor graphics and discover an enjoyable Metroidvania game.

There are a few minor problems like the lack of progress indication for hidden objects, and the subsequent going through places over and over again, but it's fun nonetheless.

A pleasant surprise! :)

This is a nice game. Still didn't finish it yet, but I already spent a very good time with it. For such a price? Buy it!

It has a simple story (Mario?) but I knew it is not about the story! It is a nice platform with nice game play like old good platform game.
It plays well with 360 controller and the game play is really nice.
The graphic is like the old 16bit era, but I felt it a good fit for the game. It has RPG elements and leveling up and I think it is a very good thought of. It seems simple, but you need to make choices here where to spend your points and what skill to boost.

The negatives are few. For me there are only two:
- Respawning of the AI is not necessary as sometimes I want that feel that I have cleaned this area (at least while I don't exit from the area).
- No map or mini map. It is not that the areas are huge! But, Mini map would make it useful to know if I cleaned this area or not and if I have been here before.

In the end I recommend it as a very good game after all and I give it 8/10 :)

Surprisingly awesome. I wasn't expecting much because of the price and the aesthetic but I was wrong. This game delivers.

Stages are well designed and there is as much depth as you could want in a metriodvania:

Lots of abilities to unlock, and an interesting level up system that lets you build your Panda around specific abilities and tactics.

Exploration is very nice, secrets scattered throughout the stages--you'ill find yourself getting abilities that let you break into new parts of the stage and coming back to the old ones to find all kind of secrets. Feels a bit like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

I played on Rondonculous mode and found the boss fights to be a real challange. The boss fights are much like the fight you see in the Megaman series--so expect them to be heavily patterned. I would have liked to run into a few more boss fights everything said and done but I was pretty happy here. And maybe give a few of the regular monsters immunity to stun effects to up the challange of stages. If what I've just described tickles your fancy go for it. You wont be losing much.

This very cutesy looking sidescrolling RPG has had me busy for some time. It's not a long lasting sort of enjoyment, but it's the sort of game you'll wanna go to when you're in the mood for something upbeat and fluid to play.

At last a game that did not bore/annoy the crap out of me in the first hour! Could'nt put my finger on why I'm enjoying this over any other platformer I have.

Not really a review but just another positive experience to outweigh the Negative Nancys on this one.

I'm recommending this - it's a good, old-school platform action game - but there are some caveats.

1 - the combat can be a bit scrappy at times - some enemies are VERY hard to hit and some hit very hard
2 - it gets lazy after a while and resorts to "long boring bit - followed by very hard bit which, if you die, you have to repeat the long boring bit again"
3 - leaping onto ledges is a bit potluck - and they do put spikes under them to waste yet more of your time...

None of those things will be unknown to people who played old-school platformers tho - so if you like that sort of thing, this is for you

I have to admit tho - after a while it crept from "fun but hard" into "I think it's taking the piss and wasting my time" and I gave-up - but that's maybe just me?
