Meganoid - Grandpa's chronicles! - Orangepixel

200 levels of torturous platforming is ready for you! Smiley

With a brilliant sound track done by Gavin Harrison, I hope you'll have a couple of hours of gameplay fun with this.  
After my first steps to desktop gaming with the Heroes of Loot beta, it's now time to take a big step and release a first full desktop game.

The game is very simple to play, left+right arrows and up,x or space to jump.
Use Alt+Enter to switch between fullscreen/windowed mode.

The game is a HARD ! The original Meganoid was often compared to Super Meat boy, and this sequel is not made easier :p

Grab the demo or the full version here:

The original Meganoid2 was already done for android and iphone with 80 levels and released long before Heroes of Loot.. so porting it to desktop and adding the new stuff wasn't month's of work Wink

Really liking this a lot Smiley Great work.

Quick comment though regarding the start of the game: In Level 2, you need to double jump to get the golden idol and not fall on the spikes below... but you're only told that you can double jump in Level 3. So, the player actually has to figure out the double-jump by themselves while playing Level 2. I just think that's odd. Maybe it would be better to switch Level 2 and 3.

Just a suggestion Smiley

EDIT: errrrr.... nevermind Tongue I just realized I could only jump once to finish Level 2. Haha. But for what it's worth, I think it's very likely that the player finds out that a double-jump is possible before Level 3. Hehe.

Really a cool little game. It's hard but not frustrating and has great retro charme. Congratz. I like meganoid a lot and will try the other games too.
