About This Game

Play as Bat Boy in this 2D side-scrolling action platformer in which the interdimensional mage Lord Vicious has brainwashed Bat Boy’s fellow teammates in order to participate in the Trials of Darkness, a heinously brutal series of athletic events! It’s up to Bat Boy to team up with the mouthy crow Garou, traversing a hostile world, to free the minds of his sports-hero teammates and learn their skills before they fall victim to the Trials. Along the way, Bat Boy will encounter all manner of characters, some allies, most not, as he fights his way through the bad guys in a variety of levels until reaching the final confrontation with Lord Vicious.

Bat Boy pits the titular hero against the former allies of his sports team, heroes such as Racket Girl, Shinai Guy, Aquaria and Mr. Blitzer, among others as he travels through the many regions beyond Lord Vicious' dimensional gateway!

A thrilling 2D platforming adventure set against rich, nostalgic 8-bit backdrops.
Swing, deflect, spin and power-hit your way through exciting baseball-style combat!
Explore a vast world of unique and exciting environments, ultimately leading to a showdown with one of Bat Boy’s brainwashed allies!

Glorious 8-bit visuals, reminiscent of early platformer legends.
High-octane chiptunes from Evader Music, composer for Smelter and Super Sami Roll.
Dozens of enemies, exciting bosses and intriguing companions to encounter!
Baseball-bat-based traversal and environmental puzzle solving!
Hidden secrets, collectibles, unlockable music and more to find!
