The Adventures of Tacheman

Hi! We are excited to announce our new game coming out soon!

It's simple and fun 2D platformer where you help Tacheman and his friends save the residents of Motopolis from the dastardly King Onetooth and his plans to steal all moustaches! The game will be free on mobile devices (iOS and android).

We will be updating with more videos and screenshots in the near future, as well as updates on the development process. Feedback is welcome! Thanks!

The game mechanics are simple jumping platformer. When the player picks up a moustache coin they are able to use their moustache as a projectile weapon to destroy enemies as well as jumping on top of them.

However, not all enemies can be killed this way or as you face a variety of different monsters. The moustache power up lasts until you lose a life, after which you need to hunt down another moustache coin.

Collecting enough gold coins has a dual purpose. One, if you loose all default three lives you can use the gold coins to immediately revive yourself and two, you will need them to progress to the next level. But there is usually enough to be able to do that.

This is great, it's like Mario without a body.

Thanks Xatu! (and also for embedding the vid-much appreciated!) He's also often compared to a marshmallow with a moustache, which wasn't intentional at first.
