    Chock full of an overwhelming supply of retro-gaming goodness, FOX n FORESTS will take retro fans back to a happier time with an all new adventure to experience. Though challenging, it is done in all the right ways, and the story presented like a fairy tale will leave a smile on your face long after the rage face has dissipated.

    It challenged my reflexes and platforming skills, and the love that went into bringing Fox n Forests to life is clear.

    Slavish adherents to modern sensibilities may wish to look elsewhere. However, if you’re looking for a blend of fast-paced fun and familiar flaws, you can’t go wrong with this game.

    With several secrets to uncover in each stage and a risk versus reward checkpoint system, FOX n FORESTS comes off a creative action platformer with a strong identity of its own.

    Fox n Forests is impressive in its authentic SNES visuals, sound, and gameplay. That being said, if it were an actual Super NES game then it would be one of those obscure titles that only a handful of gamers enjoyed back in the day.

    Mostly enjoyable game that prolongs things by forcing you to revisit levels; levels that aren't compelling enough to withstand repeated visits. [Issue#151, p.88]

    Captures the 16-big feel, but falls short. [July 2018, p.83]

I really like the retro graphics in 2D pixel design as well as the game itself. The gameplay is challenging but not too difficult and the change of seasons is really a great idea, which is just as well implemented.In any case, a clear recommendation if you don't always need games with the newest high-end graphics.

    Hi guys, I think the game is like a sweet blast from the past! It's a little tricky at first, but it's always fun to update your avatar.

    A lovingly created and pixel-perfect throwback to the SNES-era of games! Definitely worth the price of admission!

The only thing I am missing is a 2-player mode and the game could be a bit longer! I really like the season feature but found the boss battles too tricky at times, which usually play around with the season changing. Hope there will be a second part or update with a 2-player mode soon. Expand
