Default Untitled Retro Platformer - Scylla Games

Hi there
Here is my new game under development. I have very fond memories of my childhood days playing gameboy, so this game has been a lot of fun to work on.
Blocky, lowres, monochrome, retro graphics. Yeah baby!
Anyway, here are a few screenshots and a video showing the first level.
Let me know what you think
Cheers guys!

Love it ! Love the old skool Gameboy look, from the video it seems to play very well. Please add a fair few resume spots though, that other game which was a gameboy platformer was great apart from (in my view) it was too tricky and you had to start from the beginning everytime.

I'll be getting this game for sure, looks great

Looks good, but tbh, for me the time of retro platformers has gone now. There are far too many. Hope this has something to make it stand out.

I dont think you can have too many platformers, its like some people like constant running games when they seem roughly all the same to me.

If this has well designed levels then it should be a great little game. Theres many people out there who seem to love retro platformers, always seem popular

Looks great, will check it out upon release for sure. Please say it will have GameCenter integration inc. achievements... Sigh I long for a day where I don't have to worry about that.

Looks intriguing! When the game is released it will probably be on my list of games to try!

Have you got a release date in mind? Will it be this year?

Hey guys, thanks for the replies. I really appreciate it.

I havent decided on release date or price yet. Most of the graphics and game code are done, but now I'm working on designing levels at the moment, and that takes a lot of time! *phew*. I hope to release it sometime next month. Fingers crossed.

Also, I dont have music or sfx yet. Any idea where I can get free/cheap retro tunes? I love chiptunes, and I need spooky-cute ones.

There will be 25 levels in all, getting larger and larger, with a boss fight every 5th one. After killing a boss a new power is obtained, such as shooting, hovering and sticking to walls (nod nod wink wink to gargoyle's quest ;-D )

Yes there will be gamecenter integration for achievements. Any suggestions for interesting ones?

I don't really want to give too much away at the moment, but here are some tentative boss fight screens.
