Canyon Capers is a 2D platformer game.


The main character, DinoJr, is out on a quest of exploring different dungeons, canyons, and caves and hunting for great treasures hidden there. Other characters are unlockable through playing, with their unique traits and different approaches to each level. The levels in the game vary in goals and activities, wherein some there is a time limit to complete the run, while in others the player has to score some points by collecting trophies and defeating enemies.


The game follows a pattern set by the classic retro platformers: the player controls a character who can jump, get rid of enemies by landing on top of them and collect different upgrades. While at that, the game offers different challenges in the form of puzzles to solve and 50 different levels with progressing difficulty. Various types of enemies and dangerous traps await at each map, but the player can restore his progress after dying - the character respawns at the last haven.

Visuals and other features

As mentioned before, the game aims at giving its players the feeling of playing a retro platformer. Thus, the graphics are very cartoon-like, with characters having a simple, yet excellent and loveable design, and the backgrounds and other textures having much detail and work into them. The game also has a variety of achievements to obtain, as well as Steam Marketplace integration with a plethora of Steam Cards awarded for playing the game and completing some achievements.

Canyon Capers reviews and comments

Translated by

For In Between it is certainly a great but for more not even the Game principle is very simplistic you bounce through the Levels as At The time of Super Mario only the Mario could do except left and Right as well as jumping because more you can not do in this Game. It goes to collect in the Round dadrum in the level everything that lies around there and thus to make the Exit appear in the form of a Vertebra during the Game you unlock more Caracers that are all supposed to be something special. Even for a Game that has been Programmed by Amateurs you have to say this is not exactly one of the best Course Tally but not anymore. There is much missing something you can give the user normally already what has come up to me the most, the missing Keyboard is new, but basically completely next to it is controlled with the Arrow Keys left and Right, Jumping goes with the Space key More there is like I don't understand the Game either. Running it is Not graphic Claims to be made on any Carrot. Got it as a Giveaway, so I find it totally ok but Money I would never want to pay for it because more like a par Cent simply brewing Street robbery because you are offered so nothing that justifies More. But what leads to a Replay Value are The Steam achievements and the Steam Trading Cards.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Game: A Platformer Game which belongs more on Facebook than on Steam. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Single Player: Man Hopping through Two Handful At Stages and accomplished the boring Search tasks. Jumping is the only Thing the "Hero" can do and not even very good. Jumping works for Opponents and sometimes not again, the Platforms are always very annoying to reach as they are too close to each other. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Graphic: The Graphics are supposed to work Old-school but unfortunately they don't do it at all. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Music: Musically, nothing is to be expected here. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Control: The Control worked well with my XBOX 360 Pad only the Implementation was bad. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Pro/Contra: + Trading Cards-Levels are just bad-Opponents are Annoying and boring-Missions are all the same-Game time about 1h--------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------Conclusion: This Game is not Worth a Penny, it's just not fun. Anyone who has ever played a good Platformer will not have Fun here. I advise everyone to buy or play the Game. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Summarized: Single player: 2/10 Graphic: 5/10 Music: 52 10 Control: 7/10----------------------------------------------------------------------- -----------------------------Game: 4/10
