** NEW GAME ** Castle of the Cryptid [Demo]

Recommended Posts

I've been playing around with bits for this game for over a year now but am struggling find the motivation to finish it. Leave some comments and spur me on to finishing this project.

It's a platform game using some of the mechanics you'd expect from a modern platformer but to my knowledge there's nothing quite like this for the 2600.


Find attached a demo of the basic physics/mechanics of the game. There is no goal at the moment you just have to keep moving up the screen to avoid death. It picks a new level every time you die.

You can't lose and the level data repeats, I've got another file I'm working on with the level designer in it.






  • Fire - Jump
  • Fire/Fire - Double Jump
  • Fire - While on Wall - Wall Jump
  • Up/Up - Fly
  • Left/Left or Right/Right - Dash



I've got plans well beyond what's in this demo.

In the demo you can't lose and the level data scrolls.
