fantastic and amazing little game, really love playing it, the visuals and layout of levels is so gorgeous, it’s really rewarding to speedrun, can’t reccommend this eonugh if you like platformers. The only downsides to the game are that the wall jump timing for inputs is a bit weird/clunky and takes some getting used to, and that I wish there was 50 more levels because I just want it to keep going

Heads run has both bad and good. If you are looking for a fun game to speed run or play for 2-5 hours depending on your skill. Heads run is only 4 dollars and a great option.
The Good -
The game for the most part does a great job setting a fast pace to making you want to rush and speed thru the level. The level has slight changes as you hit or interact with walls and floors and adds to the feel of the world. It also has an interesting artstyle that combines with the rest to create an enjoyable experience.

Far into the future, time travel is not only possible but it is also a pain in the ass.
Evil doers and rampaging megalomaniacs are trying to break time and space, by blowing up important pieces of time and reality and the only thing in their way is the F.L.U.S.H organization!
Operating in the margin of the continuum and with a very low budget and no active agents, F.L.U.S.H tries to hold time and space together. Suddenly a delivery guy shows up, can he be the hero we need? And more importantly : Is he ok with 10 bucks an hour?

it’s kinda odd that no one has reviewed this game yet
it’s a pretty fun game
i enjoyed the mechanics so far
graphic and musics are mostly okay
level design is really really good
but it’s kinda have a clunky feeling in it that is kinda normal for a indie game
i mean it doesn’t matter that much but it will make this game not 100% smooth
a great indie game
i recommend it
and looking forward to the updates (if there is any)

Eddie Hill in the Curse of the Skull Medallion
Great game, difficulty is pretty high, and that makes it worth the grind to complete it, especially in one go. Incredible that a speedrun mode is also built in the game.
pretty fun, feeling dizzy at a shaking camera a little bit
Typomancer in the Feather’s Way
A very different proposal with a very frantic gameplay this is Typomancer. At first I thought that having to type in the middle of a game would make for a strange experience, but I was totally wrong. The fact of typing brought something quite innovative, where we can have frantic moments when it is necessary to type very fast or even moments when we can prepare for the worst by anticipating typing. I really liked the game’s proposal in combination with the effects. 10/10.
The game has a very nice experience, with a very well polishing done and with a very interesting cost-benefit.
Gos Castle Runner
I went in with an optimistic mindset, and man was it dashed into pieces. This feels like the kind of game you might download on your phone while you’re waiting for the toast in your toaster to reach the right amount of burn. It’s a runner game, through relatively short levels filled with obstacles.
You’re a ghost, so timing your jumps is a bit problematic as it’s a little frustrating determining exactly what portion of your body is going to be the best jumping off point. Avoid obstacles, such as spikes, because they’ll either kill you or slow you down depending on how many lives you have. Extra lives can be picked up in levels, and you’ll start over with a handful of lives after you extinguish what you had.
Best New game out at the moment. Its really well made for the price.
addicting as frick, the smooth kind of gameplay where you want to keep playing and you know that every death is your fault but every win is well earned. a steal at the price!
Soaked in 80’s kid nostalgia, getting addicted to running further and further with your pet pooch in a VHS grained world, grinding out points for upgrades, aesthetic decorations, and costumes.
After playing for a couple hours, I can tell this is a solid runner game. Especially nice for quick sessions and some cool retrowave music. Fantastic price tag as well - recommended.
往け！往け！マグロ - THE SHOOTING MAGURO -
The MAGURO will go, as far as it will go.
You’re a MAGURO, so swim the best swim in the world to reach your goal!
There are six stages in all! Speed and control are required!
Anybody who gets in the way, give him your signature MAGURO shot!
No Remaining-lives System!
There is life system in this game, but there are no remaining-lives.However, there is a penalty for continuing.
If you do too much continuity, you’ll be a “sluggard”.
Beware of oxygen and stamina!
Not only will MAGURO suffocate if they don’t swim, but they won’t be able to breathe in time even if they are swimming sluggishly.
However, if you keep swimming at high speed, you will lose your stamina. In such cases, let’s eat sushi. Sushi is a great food for restoring stamina.
There are also air bubbles and oxygen tanks to help you breathe, so take advantage of them and reach your goal in one piece.
When push comes to shove, you’ll have to…
Steam ranking support. Let’s compete with MAGURO from around the world!
Nintendo SwitchPro Controller
This is coming from someone who’s played so much of the original game that this is a remake of, but I love this game. Amazing gameplay and concept, great visuals, an incredible soundtrack, and so much replay value with the emphasis on speedrunning. If you like platformers that can get very challenging, this is a must-play. I genuinely consider this one of the best games in the platformer genre of all time.
good game, simple movement meshes well with the level design. music is pleasant, graphics strike a good balance between retro pixels and modern detail.
