Finding secrets, unlock costumes and attempt to finish each level as fast as you can, with awesome pixel art and a chiptune soundtrack.

What The press said about the mobile release: "Mos Speedrun is a well-made platformer that encourages you to play the game in a way you probably wouldn't otherwise." - Slide To Play (10/10) "Mos Speedrun is a game that fans of retro platformers should definitely check out.

Mos Speedrun is a challenging platformer with some lovable spritework and cool music. In a platformer like this, controls and level design are paramount, and Mos Speedrun absolutely delivers. The controls are simple, you simply run left, right, and jump. They can be a little slippery at times, but the challenges provided are more than doable, as long as you possess the sort of persistence needed for classic platforming.
As for the level design, you definitely won't be disappointed. Each stage is fairly short, and even if you take your time you can reach the end in about a minute, but you'll find that they actually feel much longer than they really are. If you're a platformer fanatic like myself, you'll 100% the game in an afternoon, but you'll have a hell of a time doing it. You CAN play just to reach the ending, but you'll still need to do a few of the challenges to access the last two worlds. Of course, as the name Mos "Speedrun" implies, the meat of this game lies not in merely clearing the stages, but clearing them with skill.
Each stage has four challenges. You'll earn a star badge simply for clearing a stage, clear a stage with all of the coins or with the skull to earn the coin and skull badges, respectively. The last, of course, is clearing a stage within that stage's par time. As far as I can tell, there is no reward for earning all 100 badges aside from self-satisfaction. As you play, you'll occasionally see achievements pop up. At the moment, I have no idea how to view the list of achievements and review which ones you've unlocked.
There isn't a lot of variety in the music, which is really unfortunate. There is no gamepad support, but this can be solved with JoyToKey. I didn't like the fact that up doubled as a jump key, and that there was no way to disable this without making menu navigation harder by simply leaving it unmapped. Overall, Mos Speedrun is just about perfect, definitely worth playing, and easily worth the $3 asking price.
A very nice and fasty game.
For who likes 8bit sprites and memory/rhythm based gameplay.
"Last-try" ghosts is a nice idea and the music is AWESOME!
IMHO it needs a Save/Load/Share replay manager. It would be great!
I appreciate the free download for GNU/Linux SO too: respect for Physmo!
