Do you have fond memories of playing old style platform games? Games that didn’t require you having to learn a one hundred button combo to play it successfully?
If so, Canyon Capers is just for you !
Canyon Capers is a retro style arcade platform game for all ages, created by the authors of the 1992 original.
Starring Dino Jr and his many friends, venture through canyons and caverns of ancient ruins across a variety of historical locations to reach the ultimate goal – the retrieval of the Golden Mollusk, source of all universal power and a mighty fine trophy at that.
What made those great old school platformers GREAT was their finely tuned difficulty curve, from nice and easy, all the way to rock hard and Canyon Capers has a difficult curve to beat them all.
Canyon Capers will make you rely on your wits, your memory and at times the seat of the pants twitch gaming.
50 levels each with 3 levels of completion and multiple ways to complete... find your best path to fame and riches.
Race to the end, collect all the items and unlock the unique bomb mode levels.
Unlock new characters, each with their own unique abilities as you complete canyons and worlds.
Tongue in cheek nods to your favorite classic retro games.
Tons of secrets and collectibles.
Full Steam support... achievements, stats, leaderboards, and cloud support.
Hated this game to its coreOktarnash | Aug. 4, 2015 | See all Oktarnash's reviews »
I tried to quickly play through all the missions, and along the way unlock it's steam cards, although I wasn't really able to do that, because I quickly got sick of it, the characters jump were very bad, and the fact that the level design is horrible, the terrible aesthetic is off putting, and I ended up getting nauseous while playing the game, I don't think anyone should buy this with much better games in the market.
Not even worth.painmaker777 | July 19, 2015 | See all painmaker777's reviews »
By saying it's not worth it, i'm comparing the price with the quality. Quite easy platform game, barely any joy, poor level design. I guess it is ok... maybe. It is definitely not even near the size of the greatest 2D platform games we've all played. Avoid this game if you are looking for a different 2D game. Get this one for the little ones at home though.
I'm not really a fan of platform games so take this into accountchakad | June 10, 2015 | See all chakad's reviews »
The game is relatively slow, and there is no sense of flow with the game. Nice graphics and pretty much that's it. Basically if you see the video of the game - then technically you have played the game. But again, I'm not really a fan of platform games, maybe if he was more rhythmic then the story was different but as is i dont recommend unless you're really into platform games.
its an ok- game...dont expect to much of itnapstip1 | June 10, 2015 | See all napstip1's reviews »
but it does pass you few hours. didn't really connect to it, so i don't know, i wouldn't pay full price for it. basically you get what you see in the review movie - slow paced platformer, with ok graphics. you should try it if you really into platform games and don't have much to play, otherwise - there are greater games out there.
Too retro to handle?Obsessor | May 15, 2015 | See all Obsessor's reviews »
Not at all if you came here with a thought of playing something that will bring back memories of old games. Canyon Capers is not a bad game as some here said. It's just stylised after those NES/SNES 2D platformers. It is a simple game meant to provide distraction from real life, and shoud be treated as such. For a lover of retro/oldschool games it's a good choice.
