Pixel Vision 8: ReaperBoy LD 40 Edition

Navigate the underworld collecting stars in a fast-paced race to escape. Use gravity to help you defeat your foes but be careful. Fall too fast and it could prove fatal. As you collect stars, you can use their power to stay alive but the longer you spend in the underworld, the less power you will have. When you run out of energy and die, it’s game over!

ReaperBoy is a classic platformer build for the Pixel Vision 8 Fantasy Console in 72 hours during Ludum Dare 40. The Game Creator is a full development environment for authoring 8-bit games and is built on top of the open source Pixel Vision SDK framework. It contains project management, asset creation, and coding/debugging tools. This all in one solution enables complete end to end development allowing anyone to create desktop games, share them and even build custom tools.

Please note, the HTML5 version is there for people that don’t want to run the game locally on their computer. There are some known issues with sound and performance depending on the browser. For the full experience, please download one of the desktop builds.
