Tight controls, smart game design, crisp graphics, and an exciting soundtrack.
This game surprised me. It feels like a retro game, but it has a lot of modern niceties and upgrades. And it’s HARD. That said, it’s fair. I still need to beat it.
For the first game from FVS Games, this is a winner.

Bring Back The Sun by Daniel da Silva
Playing status: finished the game, 243 deaths
Bring Back The Sun by Daniel da Silva is a platformer game where you need to traverse the area to reach the exit. It offers a simplistic control where you only need arrow keys or WASD to move.
- A lot of levels
Sometimes you can’t see what’s beneath you, forcing you to take a leap of faith to jump
Some mechanics feel cheap
The fast camera movement when you are jumping can give you a headache

this would be a neutral review if steam had one
bring back the sun is a game made by a small developer
its a platformer game, nice music
i didn’t get to fully experience the game because i cant get used to the camera movement when jumping, it makes it hard to play
(kind of makes you rage)
if you can, please improve the jump camera and make it so you can zoom out a bit more as you cant see whats below you most of the time
price is also a bit higher than it should be
Damn Ropes is this one hard game nobody wants to play because it’s too difficult a challenge but you play it anyway (just don’t tell anyone you play on the ‘Not So Hard’ mode).

There’s no running and jumping in this platformer game. Use your rope to swing from platform to platform. Perform impressive maneuvers, beat diverse challenges and speedrun your way through each level. Oh, did I mention you can fall all the way down to the beginning of each level?
Ah yes. Story. There is a story in this game. There’s actually a pretty deep story in here. But we can’t just throw massive dialogues at you while you try not to fall down. Pay attention to the background and other small details to understand the lore and deeper meaning of the games story. Or don’t. It’s up to you!
So you’re a fan of torturing yourself so you speedrun every single game you can find? Good thing we prepared the game for you! There’s a timer for every level as well as a global timer to track your records. The obvious route to the goal is not always the fastest one (spoiler: It never is).
So the game isn’t difficult enough for you? Then try activating a challenge. Or two. Or all of them. There are challenges like the ‘The Floor Is Not Lava But Very Dangerous’ challenge where you’ve to reach the goal without touching the ground. Or the ‘Your Rope Isn’t As Good As It Should Be’ challenge where you can’t expand or decrease it. If you can beat the whole game with every single challenge activated at once you gained our deepest respect.
We want to create a difficult game, but we also want everyone to enjoy it. So we implemented the ‘Not So Hard’ mode (it just sounds less rude than easy mode). This mode helps a lot when you’ve trouble beating the game. It’s easier to hit the environment with your rope and you can expand and decrease it further.
Review by Gaming Masterpieces - The greatest games of all time on Steam.
Is this game a masterpiece? No, but it is a fine time-waster for anyone who likes the genre. It plays fast and satisfying, the visual presentation is good and magic spells and bossfights require a bit of thought during the mayhem.
It is a platformer on speed. You play a heroine with a long reaching sword which she can use very skilled (and fast), slicing through weak enemies like pudding while guitar riffs provide the musical background. There is no stamina bar, so you can slash as much as you want. You can also use a magic weapon (only one of the 20 that can be found can be equipped), as long as you still have magical energy (which regenerates over time). Killing enemies and destroying the picturesque environements (hanging corpses, gloomy lightsources) often yields you pickups. The sword can be used fast and has a far reach, so it is not too difficult to defeat your foes, also you can (double, later triple) jump rather far, which makes the platforming a joy. So, with a little bit of training, you slice through the levels quite fast - until you reach the boss at the end, where a little more concentration is necessary. With enough pickups, you can upgrade your heroine’s powers, when you die (you start with only one life but quite a few health points) you restart at the last checkpoint (without the upgrades). Game progress is saved when you complete one of the eight stages.
Fall of Porcupine
FALL OF PORCUPINE is a unique story adventure. The collision of work and daily life – an exciting reflection of an unhealthy system.
In the supplemental LAST DAYS OF SUMMER we guide young Finley through his first weeks at a provincial hospital. He is on fire for his apprenticeship as an internist. But a lot of pressure makes Finley’s life difficult and our gameplay challenging.
Explore A Beautiful, Diverse World
Not only is there a lot to discover in the old hospital, but also in the small town itself. There you can meet the villagers and have a beer with them in the pub. Or you can take a trip to the nearby forest, where mysterious castle ruins are hidden.
Get to Know Exciting Characters
The blunt head doctor, the selfless nurse or Finley’s smart friend, they all and many other residents populate the small town of Porcupine. Have funny, profound and serious dialogues with them, in which you’ll be able to choose answers and influence your relationship with them.
Demonstrate Your Skills and Empathy
You don’t even have time to look at the clock because your patients are waiting! Find out what’s wrong with them through conversations and treat them in different minigames that challenge you in logic, speed and skill. And most importantly, withstand the stress when the strict head doctor asks about your knowledge again.
Uncover Dark Secrets
At first glance, the small town is a warm, friendly place where everyone knows and greets each other. But if you live there for any length of time, you’ll suspect that shadows lurk and that not everyone is as honest as they pretend to be. Be on guard!
Goblin and Coins
If you grew up playing classic platformers, you’ll feel right at home in Goblins and Coins. Don’t be fooled by its ‘cute’ aesthetic, it’s actually really quite challenging. I definitely recommend playing with a controller for this. On a great note though, the controls feel really tight. You’ll need that precision since the game amps up in difficulty over the course of its 5 worlds. I consider myself pretty decent at platformers and honestly I’m not sure if I’ll be able to complete this one on Old School difficulty, where if you die, you restart over from the very beginning. Luckily there’s a casual difficulty where you only have to restart that level if you lose all your health. Even on casual, some levels you may find yourself repeating multiple times just to get through. Each world ends with a boss fight, usually centered around a new mechanic introduced during that world. There’s a lot of content here for only 2 dollars.
It’s a nice little platformer, but sadly it felt like an average game to me. I mean, it works, it doesn’t crash, it has unconventional story, it has smooth controls. But it’s missing the feature which could make it a gem or excellent game. The camera could be a bit smoother, the speed of game could be a bit slower (though you quickly get used to it). Some sounds are funny and most of them feel appropriate. Music is ok. At the moment of writing this review, I didn’t finish the whole game yet (stopped just at the end of world 4, world 5 is the last one). I might update this review after I finish the game, but I doubt it will change much.
Guazu: The Rescue
very fun game
Criativo, gráficos bem desenhados, trilha na medida certa !
Jogo CHICSHOW !!
So far, pretty fun! I like the music, the art style, its great! My only complaint is the lack of online battles. I want to play locally, or match up with my friends via friend battle. Thats just my nitpick though. The AI is challenging so I don’t mind too much.
Fan of the old jump n bump from the 90s. Used to sit there playing jump bump as we called it. As kids 4 of us on one keyboard those were the days . This is very similar. I really like this game. I certainly would like more levels but I guess maybe one day lol.
Super Onion Boy 2
A fantastic game very fun to play
