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.
Fun, but just misses the markmidgetjacks | Sept. 30, 2014 | See all midgetjacks's reviews »
Do you like coins, gems, treasure chests, and golden snail...things? Sounds like a good time, right? Well, it sounds great on paper, and in screenshots, but playing it, it just feels....off. When you take a hit, you have a few moments of invulnerability, but during that time, you can't hurt enemies, either. It sounds fine, but you end up in situations where you think a jump should've landed, but instead you took a hit, go invulnerable, and now you're timing is off.
You know, thinking about it, maybe that's the point, the game wants to encourage you to just book it when you take a hit. You are timed, and get bonus points for remaining time. Enemies are obstacles, only worth the points in passing. Still, despite all this, it just didn't grab me the way I expected it to. For the right people, it's probably great, but for me it's just this side of mediocre.

Canyon Capers is an old school game but It has no relationship with the other games of his year.The game is simple but equally difficult.You must be quick because time flies.The games is addicted and i'm sure that can compete with the other games of thie season.Every level has different goal.For example in level 3 the goal is to take all of the gems and the treasures.When you complete 10 levels you unlock a different world and also a different person.Also in random times you will recieve a trading card.In Canyon Capers you can recieve 3 in the games and the other 3 you can take them if you buy Rio Fever or if you trade cards with others Canyon Capers Gamers.That's all.For other quesstions ask me if you want.
Good retro game but no "special" feelingpenfold82 | July 22, 2014 | See all penfold82's reviews »
I'm not a platform expert but I thought I would give it a try. I really enjoyed it to start with. The colours are bright and fun and have that retro platform feel to them. Music and sounds fit in nicely. Controls are simple and you can get straight into it. But for some reason, I just wasn't drawn into it and found that the novelty soon wore off.. It may just be that my fond memories of these games cannot be matched today, especially with all the fancy new games out there. If you're a big fan of platforms or a hardcore retro fan, this game should suit you quite well. As for me, I'll see how far I get but I don't think it will hold my interest long enough for me to finish it.
