Platform Explorer

Platform Explorer game for the SMS Power! 2019 Competition.

RELEASE

Wednesday, 27th March 2019

INTRO

Platform Explorer is a port of the XNA Platform starter kit for the Sega Master System.

INSTRUCTIONS

Move left and right and fire1 to jump. Hold fire2 to reset player during play.

Easy or hard difficulty. Avoid all enemies + guards and watch out for the pits!

After feedback from the community, you can now choose game speed Slow [motion] or Fast.

Slow can intermittently go Fast if you move joystick up while running during game play.

Due to time constraints, there were previously only 20x levels. This has now increased to 40x!

There is capacity for 80-100 levels. Please let me know if you'd like to design some levels :)
