"The gameís 16-bit inspired graphics are fantastic...a fun platforming game with some solid blasting action and some weirdly memorable characters. Will the well-meaning doctor wise up to the error of his ways? Itís worth sticking around long enough to find out." -- 148 Apps [4/5]

Buddy Bot: Slayer of Sadness is a retro-inspired action platformer with fully upgradeable weapons, numerous exotic locations, dozens of enemy types, and unlockable bonus levels.

Professor Pillbody has invented a robot and an arsenal of baked goods designed to rid the world of sadness. As Buddy Bot, jump and shoot your way through 36 exciting levels as you destroy all the purveyors of sadness: bad haircuts, automotive traffic, computer viruses, adorable children's toys and more! Unleash a barrage of donuts, cupcakes and other tasty treats onto your enemies. Collect coins and unlock new weapons and upgrades. Discover warps and secret paths. Perform sequences of jumps all while firing your weapons. And never play a level the same way twice, as you fight to make the world a better place.

NO IN APP PURCHASES!
You pay for the game once, you get all the content!

16 BIT QUALITY GAMEPLAY

No virtual d-pad here! Just tap on the screen to jump, or warp yourself by tapping on a blue Energy Orb. Intuitive level design that will make you feel like you're playing on a game pad, when all you're doing is controlling Buddy Bot's triple jump ability. Tap an icon to bring up the weapon select menu, but don't worry, Buddy Bot will take care of the running and shooting himself!

CREATIVE GAME WORLDS

36 levels spread across 6 different game worlds including one bonus world. Each world has it's own distinct style and enemies plus 5 challenging bosses.

UPGRADES

Weapons can be earned and upgraded between levels. Each of the first five worlds will unlock new weapons, as well as new upgrades for older weapons as the player progresses through the story.

CHALLENGE LEVELS

Unlock the 6th world after you've completed the main story and collected enough Happy Coins on each of the first 5 worlds. There are 3 hidden Happy Coins per level, some of which will require significant skill to acquire!

RETRO INSPIRED SOUNDTRACK

Awesome retro inspired soundtrack with plenty of catchy tunes!

This is a fun little platformer with some very quirky artwork and dialog. The levels are well designed and offer a nice challenge if you want to collect everything. The performace is a little frame-y on my device, looked to be about 20-25fps.

Performance is one of the major obstacles to doing a game in HTML5. I'm going to try to address this in the first update, but in the meantime try closing down all other apps and restarting and hopefully that will help a bit.

Thanks for the feedback!

Looks fun but iPad4 min?! I can play x-com on my iPad2 but not this? Oh well, will keep an eye on it and see if performance gets improved.

Yeah it's an auto runner, but I hate classifying it that way because I think people tend to think "endless runner," which this is not. Think of it as being more along the lines of the Rayman iOS games, just with a lot of weapons and stuff.

Haha, believe me I understand. I made a decision early on to use HTML5 because it was much simpler to develop for, in spite of performance concerns.

I'm going to look into perf/memory restrictions and try to improve that in the next update though for sure.
