App description: Penumbear awakens in a dark castle basement, completely alone aside from a small purple firefly to keep him company. Luckily this firefly has a special ability to turn lights off and on, and Penumbear has his own unique ability to walk on the lines where shadow and light meet!

PENUMBEAR is a classic platformer with an emphasis on danger, exploration and puzzle solving. Each of the games 100 levels combine lights and blocks to create drastically different layouts for Penumbear to explore as he tries to find his way out of the dark castle.

Hell explore the castles basement with its shadowy creatures and tentacles, before traveling to the grimy and spiky dungeon, the vast cavern, up the fireplace and through the tower to reach his freedom. Along the way hell encounter increasingly vicious monsters, fiendish puzzles, and gigantic bosses determined to stop his progress.

Hundreds of fellow bears are hidden through the castle and its up to Penumbear to save them all. Secrets are in every corner; secret levels, warp zones, special achievement bears and especially elusive Golden bears. Taking the time to fully explore the castles many levels will prove rewarding!

Penumbear is an immersive experience that recalls the best of classic platformers while presenting something new and exciting for the genre.

FEATURES:

-Walk on lights and shadows
-Over 100 levels to explore
-Tons of secret to discover (Levels, bonus bear, new characters ...)
-An entire castle with many trap to face of
-Fight giant bosses during your trip
-Game Center Achievements
-Universal version

We hope that you enjoy Penumbear.

Do not hesitate to give us your feedback or to recommand the game to your friends.

Been following news of this game for ages on twitter.

A definite purchase for me, but surprised no impressions so far, and not reached the TA masses yet

Hopefully this game will get some good exposure as I wouldn't want this to suffer the same fate as Terra Noctis

Hey Guys, thanks for all the kind words about Omegapixel.

No IAP. Everything is included with the purchase price, just over 100 levels including secret levels, bonus collectables, achievements, and a very very tough to get and beat second quest (won't give any more away beyond that).

We had a bunch of awesome beta testers and it took 20-30 hours to beat all the levels, and more than that to 100% it. Feel free to ask any questions.

I make things. I made the soon to be released Penumbear. I also made Omegapixel & Four Hats. Tacos are my favorite thing to make. Twitter: @tacograveyard
