    An efective, joyful and funny proposal that updates the classic arcade gameplay from the 80s and 90s with adventure elements from the metroidvania genre, lots of humor and a polished pixel art, that moves like a fish in the water between a doable challenge and a fair difficulty game.

    Willy Jetman: Astromonkey's Revenge has given us some fun moments without spending much money. The first big surprise of the Spanish indie development in 2020.

    Willy Jetman: Astromonkey's Revenge is a goofy, challenging, and oddly charming 2D scroller that is heavily inspired by retro video games.

    Willy Jetman: Astromonkey's Revenge is a charming indie shooter with plenty of adventures to be had, but its repetitive music, inconsistent controls and surprising difficulty curve hold it back slightly. Worth a look if you enjoy a challenge, and a quirky story.

    It's not perfect, but Willy Jetman has plenty to offer people looking for a retro-inspired game that doesn't take itself too seriously. If you're willing to look past its rough edges, you'll find yourself having a good time.

    It makes things a little repetitive unless you have faith in your ability not to die – which is hard because Willy isn't the most resilient little guy, dying in two or three hits from pretty much every enemy in the early game, when the experience is in its formative stages. Despite these little drawbacks, we were impressed with Willy Jetman. It rises above its derivative title and offers an attractive, intricate, very much hand-crafted Metroidvania-lite experience.

    Willy Jetman: Astromonkey's Revenge is a fun old-school metroidvania that features good characters, a diverse array of weapons and a solid implementation of the jetpack as the main mechanic. There are some difficulty spikes along the way and it's world lacks visual variety, but the good mostly surpasses the bad.

If you can, play it with the Pro Controller on the TV. Lovely graphics (that reminds me a bit of Terraria), action and a good sense of humour telling the story.
    WARNING: don't be fooled by its beautiful and friendly graphics, it's a quite challenging game and sometimes you may get stucked, but if you get the correct weapon it will be easier.

    For some reason i just love jet pack games.

    Willy Jetman executes this perfectly. At points its a bit hard to execute jump,jet pack and shooting at the same time but over time you will adapt.

    The pixel art is stunning,soundtrack quirky and funky.

    Characters pulls you into the story quite nicely.

    One of those pick up for a quick play type of game.

    i recommend to give it a go.
