A brilliant two-button remake of the Namco arcade classic. Can you double jump your way through spike pits, collect the gems and avoid the dragons?

Tom Atom has been busy lately and this is another new game he created for Bandai Namco. This time it's a modern remake of their classic 80s arcade game Dragon Buster. The original game is renowed for being the first to ever feature the double-jump ability and a visual health meter. Something you'd take for granted these days.


Much like the original this version is punishingly difficult too! There are just 2 controls: Z to change the direction you're walking, and X to jump (or double jump). And that's it.


With those two buttons you need to traverse the side-scrolling castle, leap pits of spikes, avoid fire breathing dragons and collect all the gems. Good luck, you're going to need it!
