THE STORY Oh wow, I'm actually kinda surprised you scrolled down this far...that's awesome! My name's Chris, and I'm so excited to tell you about my game! It’s a ‘90s-inspired adventure platformer about the totally normal adventures I went on as a chubby kid back in 1995 - traveling the world, learning useful abilities, and, naturally, getting kidnapped and turned into a balloon by cartoon villains. Thankfully, I escaped and learned to use my transformation as a kind of superpower. I got to learn all kinds of cool stuff - how to throw fireballs and lightning, how to bounce around like a basketball and rocket around the earth. It's a neat story...I think. I really hope you'll enjoy it - I had a lot of fun making it! FEATURES - Uncover a sinister story in a quirky, cartoon-like universe. - Explore 9 locations around the world in any order you please, plus the Kingdom of Lost Balloons and more! - Build Chris from a weak kid into the ultimate hero by upgrading him with unique special moves and abilities that you can customize to your style. - Learn (or purchase) increasingly powerful spells and techniques. - Battle bizarre villains across the globe, including samurai cats, cyborg penguins and whiny vampires. - Float or fall through unique platforming challenges. - Two additional full game modes, including bonus content - a more difficult and humorous Mean Mode, and Developer Commentary. - A variety of unlockable content and secrets to discover, including an in-depth backstory. - Numerous difficulty settings, including "Ridiculously Easy" for players who prefer to never die, and "Hard for No Reason" for crazy people. - Snort out loud with a game chock-full of laughs.

Adventures of Chris Critic Reviews

Adventures of Chris is a platformer with smooth controls but unforgiving gameplay that will leave you more frustrated than having fun.

However, for players who persevere beyond those opening levels, there are some genuinely clever and fun platforming elements to be discovered, adapting and evolving the 16 bit template. It's just a shame that the first part of the game is so slavish to the formula. There's fun to be had here, just at the expense of the legacy it evokes.

Adventures of Chris doesn't break new ground in the 2D platformer genre. Still, it provides genuine humour, personality and variety in bucketloads, all while sending a few loving glances to the 16-bit era of videogames.

My overall impression of The Adventures of Chris is very high. I love old-school platformers and there have been more of these popping up lately. They aren't overly difficult or too easy to learn and play either. If you didn't play games like this on Nintendo and Sega then you have no clue how hard games used to be compared to these. For $14.99 USD on Steam and Nintendo Switch, it is a bargain value for a good title. Have fun taking out giant spiders, bats, frogs, and other oversized creatures on your way to becoming the hero today.
