About This Game

Tommy Tronic - an old-skool platformer that isn't trying to be anything else! Jumping, shooting, dodging and exploring is all that's required to help get Tommy to his destination and free his tiny puppy from the clutches of an insane genius school-kid and his brutal sidekick 'Biffa'. It would be straight forward too, if it wasn't for the fact that this journey will take Tommy through Gnarly wood; a twisted and eerie forest that adults avoid let alone tiny children! Imagination runs amok as Tommy confronts his childish fears head on, all in a bid to be reunited with his beloved pal 'Yapz'!

A lot of people don't seem to like this game. (I guess if you expect platforming and controls similar to Supermeat Boy, that could be a problem.)

This is a fun little game that reminds me of Commander Keen (sans pogo stick) and a little of Metroid for some reason.

If you want a game that lets you brag about how sooper-1337 you are, don't buy this. If you just want a fun casual game, give this a shot!

This is a game I really wanted to like. I have a soft spot in my gamer heart for cartoony platformers. This looked like such a great Keen-esque platformer that I bought it on blind faith. Bad mistake. It's a horribly simplistic, buggy exposition of what it looks like when a video game is made from the ground up to hit a marketing goal. Someone said "old school is in right now, Halloween is cool, push this game out" and this horrible thing was patched together as quickly as possible. I'm pretty disappointed in both Interplay and Steam for signing off on the distribution.
