I began work on this game in February 2016, intending it to be just a weekend project, and showed an unfinished version at an Indie Game Play Test Night in Eugene, Oregon at Shoryuken League. I meant to release the game very shortly thereafter, but wanted to explore the elements further with a few more levels. The game was placed on hold as I got increasingly busy with school, teaching, and then went and got married. I dusted the files off in October 2017
Explobers pushes your planning, puzzle and platforming skills to the limit for a challenging but rewarding experience. —MMOaholic
Explobers is a unique puzzle platformer that requires you to use multiple player characters to solve difficult challenges by using their powers (and lives) to destroy terrain and build blocks in order to navigate through over eighty tricky stages.
The game begins in the familiar CGA palette of classic PCs. As you progress, new graphic modes become available and you may find some secrets!
Explobers will be featured as a part of the upcoming 2018 Smithsonian American Art Museum Arcade in Washington DC on July 22, 2018.
Explobers has a trailer. It also has an official website.
I worked on this game through most of 2017. Please purchase it at itch.io or GameJolt.
As of 2020, the game is also available for Android-based handheld game consoles (such as the Retroid Pocket 2) as Explobers GO and for Android phones as Explobers Pocket. These can be downloaded from the game’s page on itch.
The game is fully playable in Japanese. 日本語でも遊べる！

A tribute to IBM compatible games in CGA mode and an enhanced remake of jfroco’s game Skeletons in the Closet, a tribute to Sinclair ZX Spectrum games.
This is a very late submission to this most excellent idea for hugs’s No Pressure Appreciation Nicejam!
jfroco’s game is a tribute to the style of ZX-82 games, which they grew up on. I really liked the game when I played it in Pirate Kart V. Personally, I don’t have any particular nostalgia for the Spectrum, but my equivalent would be early Apogee-type shareware platformers . So my little headcanon is that this is the MS-DOS port from the late 1980s that alters the original Spectrum game, moves things around, and expands it a bit. All three original stages are adapted for this twelve-stage version!
