Default Arlo's Adventure - 2D Sidescroller Inspired by Mario and Mega Man


Arlo wakes up one morning to find that his magical powers have been drained by unknown evil forces. He must embark on a journey to get his powers back and fight whoever has done this to him!


We love the gameplay and art in retro sidescrollers, such as Mario and Mega Man. So, we implemented elements of both into our game, with the ability to choose between powers to fight enemies in a fantasy setting.
  • 6 unique areas, with a total of 36 levels
  • 5 magical powers to defeat your foes
  • 3 different potions to collect and use along your journey
  • Physics based puzzles
  • Area specific enemies and bosses










Arlo's Adventure will be released on the iOS app store on February 17th.
  • $0.99 release sale for a limited time
  • NES inspired original soundtrack
  • Game Center leaderboards
  • iPhone and iPad specific controls
  • Runs on iPhone 3GS and up, iPod touch 3rd generation and up, and iPad 2 and up

We've uploaded a sneak peek video of some gameplay from the meadows near the beginning of the game! Puzzles and enemies are pretty easy in these first levels to help you get a feel for the controls and how the game works.

Here's a sneak peek video of a cave level! There is a new magic power that freezes enemies for a short time and some new enemies that will prove to be a bit more challenging than the spiders in the meadows.

Looks good, I'm a sucker for pixel art graphics, so I'll have to get this.

Here's another gameplay video with Arlo in the castle area. The new cutter magic is the best way to rip zombie heads off!

Let's hope this game doesn't have GameCenter bugs like Mos Speedrun does. For that matter, some sort of support. I have e-mailed him (Mos Speedrun dev) and never received a response once.

This game looks good. Will definitely check it out once it's released.

We've repeatedly tested out our speed run Game Center leaderboard in Arlo's Adventure and it works perfectly. If some problems do come up, we will definitely respond to any support questions in a timely fashion.
