Superku is a fresh take on the classic side-scrolling platformer genre. It features an easy to learn, yet very difficult to master jump'n'run gameplay. Control Superku and climb a sheer endless tower full of danger and adventure as you jump, swim, roll, (wall)run and blast through over 40 varied stages.

Small status update: The intro sequence for Superku is done and has been uploaded to indieDB, go check it out! The video introduces the three main characters of the game, the villain with the jetpack, the game's hero Superku and his teddy bear who loses control of his plane and has to be rescued in the first part of the game.

The skateboard level has been updated too and beta testing revealed that the high score requirement to pass the stage has to be lowered by approximately 90%, who would have thought that?

A few features and facts: The game will feature 41 levels and all of them will have an unlockable alternative, even harder version. The approximate playtime until the player sees the closing credits or until the player reaches the final 3-5 levels (as they get really, really hard) is 5hours.

There will be 45+ collectibles and secrets waiting to be discovered and online leaderboards that track three best times per player per level (normal, hard and Pelzku (= collectible) version).The game will have a configurable 3 or 4 button scheme keyboard control + arrow keys and alternatively full gamepad support. Although Shader Model 3.0 graphics cards will be required, 128MB video memory should be enough to play the game with all effects activated.

Played a development version of it at AckCon this year! It's really good! The controls are tight and everything feels smooth all around. The mechanics never get boring and there is a lot of variation!

Yeah you can clearly see how much work has gone into this. The variation reminds of NeoGeo games like Metal Slug (which also had many mechanics).

ps: are there difficulties (easy, medium,hard etc.) in the game?

I didn't see any, but the levels get harder really fast.

Seriously! More people should check out this game! It looks like a lot of hard work is going into it and it looks pretty cool.

Game looks pretty interesting. Nice gravity mechanics, and I like the water mechanics, as well. You might want to try 'spicing up' the old-school sounds - they don't quite fit the graphics to me. Perhaps if you added a slight reverb to them? Anyway, good job so far! I'm tracking this!
