Argu the Caveman: In the lazy sleep crazy

Postby Rico » Mon Jan 24, 2011 4:08 pm

This is a fairly simple 8-bit platform game set in the caveman days, your name is Argu and you're a very lazy caveman, so lazy that when your tribe packed up to migrate south you slept through the whole thing! To avoid being left behind you must take the dangerous shortcut through the forest and avoid the deadly animals and enemy tribes, you must reach the boats before your tribe sets sail.

Includes nice classic style 8-bit graphics and old style game music to immerse you in a truly classically played platform game.

The graphics remind me of Sonic, but nice job.

Nice story, it's really simple but effective :)

Just goggled Happyland and I have noticed someone in my team needs a slap. :lol:
Though I can assure everyone only a minority of it is from this game, my friend said he created some tiles which obviously he didn't.

Well he might, the tiles are a tad different. Although the snail is definitely in that game.

I look forward to it anyway :D

Well I may have to play it soon to see how bad this is. :?
However onto brighter horizons I have almost completed the Dinosaur boss which is done in a very new way I'm sure. ;)

Always check first page for updates.

Looks pretty cool. The background may be better if you switched the colors around a bit. For example:
