Pixel perfect platforming action

From the creator of Cave Story comes Pixel's latest work; Kero Blaster. The C&F Inc. teleporters are going offline all over the place, and it's up to you, an intrepid frog employee and master of the Custodial Sciences, to fix the situation by riding the company's teleportes of strange black creatures. Fight for your life through a menagerie of unique monsters while getting your hands on exciting new tools of the trade.

 
 

Save C&F! Blast bizarre creatures! Be a frog!

Kero Blaster is a classically-styled 2D side-scrolling action game packed with adventure. Players meet a cast of characters that is both figuratively and literally colorful as they hop and blast their way through unique levels. Each gun is custom-tailored to be a better or worse fit for any given situation. Due to the enemies present, their attack patterns, the shape of the terrain—players quickly find that they have to adjust on the fly and select the right tool for the job. Clearing the game on normal is no small feat and unlocks hard mode which is a challenge not for the faint of heart. 

 
 

A story world of bright colors and charm

  • Frog - Our hero! An employee of C&F, they are charged with the unenviable task of ridding the company's teleporters of strange black creatures. 
  • Cat - Co-worker in R&D. A decidedly generous individual who, from time to time, gives gifts. Clearly appreciates others.
  • Pink - The nurse, assistant, subsitute Custodial Artist and shop-keeper; what doesn't Pink do?!
  • The Boss - A cat and delegator of work. Something seems really off about her lately, though...
 
 

A pixel perfect action game and perfection of a classic model

Change guns constantly and keep thinking tactically! It's the only way to survive!

Kero Blaster is an adorable game, but the classic retro art should act as a disclaimer to anyone who remembers the challenges of the 8-bit era.

Understanding the encounters, strategization and execution are of paramount importance. Depth of gameplay sets Kero Blaster apart from other games--players will feel rewarded for thinking ahead, for playing precisely and without hesitation. Bubbles bounce, dropping below to decimate enemies; underwater, however, they flow upward providing relief from dangerous obstacles and menacing aquatic creatures. The blaster upgrades allow long-range attacks to deal with enemies that are tricky up close.

Each weapon works differently, so experimenting will help players find what works for them in each situation.
