I beat you to it.

But I'll repost here:


I'm not gonna lie; it's pretty good. The story of Auto Boy is at least as engaging as the story of Mega Man. A man with a condom over his head steals a powerful weapon on behalf of the US and you have to get it back:




Unfortunately it's all boss fights. Well, 99% boss fights. The levels are very short.



Still, I like it.

Looks cool, but without a full-screen option, I'll be giving it a miss. Shame, I love 8-bit games.

This was on Xbox Live Arcade Indie Games.



The developers should have done a lot more to promote this game as retro platformers are the trend on the Appstore and Toucharcade.

Hopefully the controls are as good as League of Evil.
