Jun 24, 2014Its dated art style definitely put even me off quite a bit and its mechanics are solid and well designed but perhaps a bit too simple and locked into the history of its name. That said, underneath its unimpressive exterior is a decent platformer that offers up a reasonably meaty experience and no doubt a nostalgia trip for players who grew up on DOS and Amiga games.

It was marketed as being "retro", but it really doesn't capture the retro feel at all. Just because the art style is all pixelated does not make it retro or classic. The gameplay consists of monotonously going through levels where you pick up all the jewels in the level and get to the exit. The level designs aren't unique or clever in any way. Just a bunch of platforms with jewels scattered around and some enemies you can jump on (which also respawn in a few minutes).
The only controls you have are move left and right and jump. They don't even do a good job with these, as the controls just feel slow. The game feels very childish, like something you would find on a kids' flash games site. The bottom line is that this game has nothing unique to offer and it is boring and un-fun to play.… Full Review »

Call it lazy, call is uninspired, but a lot of people grew up on games like this one, and sometimes it's just nice to play something that doesn't have you wanting to tear your hair out every ten minutes. Does that mean this game is great? No. But it's really not that bad.
As casual as games come, 'Canyon Capers' is a simple 2D side-scrolling item collecting game, and not a tough as nails super precise platformer. Which I'm sure some people thought that it might be before purchasing it, or deciding to get it in a bundle. Sure it doesn't have the best sound effects, or music, or level design, or art style, or anything really. But you know what? I've played a ton of games that were much worse than this one, and at least 'Canyon Capers' does what it sets out to do; give players the ability to collect coins, fruits, and gems!
Sure, this game is extremely basic, as is the level design and overall challenge, but that's kind of what these games are all about. So if you're in the mood to just relax and waste a few minutes, then this game can be an enjoyable experience. Oh yeah, and I'm pretty sure that this game is for children, ya know, kids. But I suppose all of you people who gave this game a negative review hate on 'Reader Rabbit' too, or maybe you thought the movie 'Muppets in Space' was too "juvenile"; well to hell with all of you I say! Now everyone; into the canyon!… Full Review »
