Description

Super Bugman Extreme Ultra is a unique 2D Platformer with state-of-the art 1990's graphics, lending an "old-school" gaming experience to a new generation of gamers. Jump, pickup and place blocks, throw onions, and use special abilities on enemeies. Many play-modes including the ability to play other people's levels on the Steam Workshop! It's a great waste of your time!

History

Way back in October of 1998, a young programmer created the very first "Bugman" game in QBasic. Given QBasic's limitations, the game could only do stutter-scrolling (half-block), and was just a simple platformer where the intrepid "Bugman" could jump on blocks, stomp enemies, and collect "!" marks for points. Fast forward to March of 2010, and the very same programmer decided to dip his toes in C++. After experimenting with SDL 1.2, he had pieced together a smooth-scrolling prototype for a 2D platforming game. Taking many assets from the original "Bugman" game, the game prototype became a rework of the initial concept and became "Super Bugman Extreme Ultra". Due to limited free-time for development (because of a fulltime job and family!), after 8 years of development the game is finally ready for release!
