Who's 8BitBoy?

8BitBoy is out of a job, and quite frankly he's depressed about it. Then he suddenly remembers all the good times he had as a kid, playing his trusted 8-bit console. Deep down in the far and darkest corner of the basement he finds it along with a strange looking cartridge. He plugs in the cartridge right away, and get sucked into a vivid, but decaying world of platforming. And this is where your adventure takes off.

8BitBoy is the platformer I always dreamt about playing as a kid.

It's a fantastic mash-up of the greatest of the late 80's and 90's and a complete game on it's own terms. This is a true tribute to old school gaming and by no means a walk in the park, but it's also never unfair. With big challenges, the sense of accomplishment is always bigger and better.

To me, 8BitBoy is the ultimate classic platformer on PC and Mac. and a symbol of my love and passion for gaming.

This update has been long long overdue. There were some problems with both 1.51 and 1.52, so I decided I would skip those and go directly to a major update called 1.53. Unfortunately moving to a new place and life in general, prevented me from doing that as fast as I would like to. So what has happened to 8BitBoy? The core mechanics of the game has been optimized all-round and the game-engine has been updated extensively in several ways. This should decrease lag and increase performance for PC u...


The every level in every world is undergoing a design overhaul. This is to make some of the first levels I made for the game, up to the standard of the complexity of the later levels. This also means alternative routes and much more content. This is also to stash a lot more hidden places in even more inventive ways. 8BitBoy has so much hidden content you won't believe it. Most people isn't going to find many of these hidden spots, but just knowing they are there to find, makes the game that much...


Polishing up and improving 8BitBoy in various places. New features and content are coming to an end for now, but there is still small bits that need to be tweaked and polished before I'm satisfied. All levels in World 2 has received a major design overhaul. Run and Shoot is now assigned to one key on both gamepad and keyboard. Keyboard can be configured for three keys still. X and B on gamepad are the same now. Volume bug fixed. Volume lavels are saved automatically. Added gradual transition ent...


Collecting coins is suddenly a very essential part of playing 8BitBoy. 100 coins used to equal an extra life, but now it activates the power-up roulette. Any power-up you get, you can keep in a slot for when you need it. This makes everything so much easier, and a lot more fun. Having a power-up ready makes you a lot stronger. - Power-up save slot - Power-up roulette (collect 100 coins to activate) - Additional secret areas on 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 1-5, 1-6, 1-7, 1-8, 2-4 - Fullscreen setting is s...


I wanted to add another power up for such a long time and now I finally got around to making that happen. The ultimate power-up in 8BitBoy. The ability to customize keys is also available in the main settings menu. Key bindings will be stored permanently. - New ultimate power-up - Firepower increased for black grapes - Set key bindings (beta, only keyboard) - New raspberry sprite * Hint: When you get the black grapes, try to run into someone - make sure you run fast enough.
