Rex Rocket - retro Sci-fi adventure ( by Castlepixel )
Set in Earth’s distant future, you play Captain Rex Rocket, a former war hero who now spends his days transporting scientists to the far reaches of the universe. The game begins with Rex and his crew on a routine mission for the Council of Science - to transplant bio-engineered Terra-Oozlings to an uninhabited planet on the other side of the galaxy. While the ship's crew are in cryo-sleep, all heck breaks loose when the Terra-Oozings escape their tanks and cause the ship's main computer, LAUREN (Logic Analysis User Reactive Entity Network), to go insane. Now it's up to Rex to stop the computer, rescue his crew, take back his ship, and save the day!
Inspired by the retro glory days of 8-bit games, Rex Rocket is a traditional 2D platformer brought into the 21st century. Paying tribute to classic NES games like Mario, Mega Man, and Metroid, old-school gamers will find Rex Rocket a breath of fresh air, stirring warm and fuzzy feelings of nostalgia. Rob and Tyler, two passionate indie game devs, have a mission to keep the world of retro games alive. Rex Rocket features one-of-a-kind handmade pixel art, over 100 handcrafted levels connected in an expansive starship filled with a wide variety of puzzles, enemies, hazards and bosses. To top it off, we have an an original, kick-ass chiptunes soundtrack by Saskrotch. Creating this universe and the memorable characters in this game has been a true labor of love.
