A classic platformer with metroidvania elements.

Time is all of a jumble and Captain Neat-O is trapped in the middle of it! Battle enemies, solve puzzles and find the tools you need to escape the Time Nexus and stop whoever is behind this nefarious plot.

Gain an extra heart for every 100 gems collected. There are 300 gems to collect in total but some of them are hidden in secrets areas so keep an eye out for walls look a little bit different.

This is an entry for Toy Box Jam 3 using the graphics, music and sound effect assets supplied as part of the jam.

Great game but what to do with the grey key?

Sorry, that was a bug that was causing keys to be respawned. All fixed now.

great metroidvania, the dual design of some enemies and the puzzles were well thought out

Found the bosses a little tough, unsurprising given the game length, but really good all round experience.

Lovely smooth platforming in this, such a well-polished game, doesn't feel like a jam game at all! :)

I really liked finding the secret areas, it was fun looking out for the slight differences in textures. The sliding block puzzles were really cool too, a very nice addition to the run 'n' gun formula.

so macho

Character looks like Billy Blaze from Commander Keen.

This was done for a game jam run by Tom Hall, the creator of Commander Keen, where the main requirement of the jam was to use the art, music and sound effects supplied. So yes, the completely-non-copyright-infringing Captain Neat-O looks like Billy Blaze.

Wow! This has so many features,  and it takes me back to being a kid who loved Captain Comic. Great music, too!
