Description

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.


Key Features:

  • 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.

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.

I grabbed this game when its free then started to play. In this game there is 18 achievements but not much challenging. There is plenty of levels but its easy. It can be fun for child to play. But not so fun if u play it. Because its easy graphic is not good. If u interested in easy game this is for u. But if u interested in hard game i cant recommend. But this is my opinion. Choose is yours!

Forget about it.

If you didn't grabbed a copy when this game was for free, forget about it. There is nothing interesting in this title. I know it's just a simple platformer game but even something this easy can be done wrong. So what's wrong? Every level looks same. Seriously, sometimes you feel like you played this level before but you only notice that it's not because of different objective. Animations in Canyon Capers is just... wait, there is any animation? When you run, jump or kill enemies it looks like sprites are moving up/down/left/right. Maybe there are few moves but really, devs of this game can't into animation. There is nothing worth to notice and list of bad things is just toooooo looooongs. Avoid at all cost, even if you enjoy every platformer games, you will only get tired from playing this.

Well, I can not say that this game is good, one of the worst platform game I have ever seen. Graphics are just bléh. Gameplay are really, really simple! Soundtrack extremely strange. Bad movement. Really colourful. Thinking in a good way, give it to your child or something little you have in your family, maybe they will like it and that's cheap so, buy it, test it. I do not recommend it.

Decent platformer

reginleifx | Dec. 13, 2014 | See all reginleifx's reviews »

Having played many platformers in my life, I can say Canyon Capers is not one of the worst of them, but it sure is the worst I have played in a while. Gameplay is decent. Levels have different objectives like grabbing all the gems on them or finding a certain portal before you run out of time, which brings some variety to it. You will get hit by enemies a lot, since there seems to be some flaws in their hitboxes and your character's. Sadly, the game's difficulty is too low, and chances are you are not going to die. Graphics are alright. Too colorful for my liking, but I guess it fits the game. Canyon Capers' soundtrack is forgettable. Overall, I think it is not a memorable title. Get it if you see it on sale and want a quite easy platformer.
