Cave Story developer unleashes amphibian platformer Keroblaster onto the App Store

Daisuke Amaya, developer of the acclaimed PC and Nintendo DS game Cave Story, has just released his new platformer on the App Store.

Keroblaster is a classically-styled 2D platformer. Taking clear inspiration from the 8-bit era in both graphics and gameplay terms, the game has you jumping between lo-fi platforms blasting anything in your path.

The whole thing looks like it could be based on a long forgotten 80’s Saturday morning cartoon about a suave, jetpack-wearing lizard out to save the world.

However, unlike licenced games of the period, Keroblaster may actually be quite good, as Amaya’s previous work demonstrates he's a dab hand at creating tight platformers.

If you fancy giving this old school offering a chance, you can grab Keroblaster from the App Store for £2.99 / $4.99 right now.
