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.
