I truly love Rico! One of my best play store purchases! The art style is great, the music is fantastic and the gameplay is astounding. Well done!
I really admire the smooth camera, too! Something which I’ve been struggling to get right in my own platform games.
Thanks for a great game!
take care, mate
ps. Just a question, if you have the time. How long were you been programming/doing game dev for before you released Rico?
Thanks a lot, mate! :)
Coincidentally, I’m just writing on my first blog post and it focuses on cameras in 2D platformers! It will still take a few days though…
I’ve been programming for 8 years now (I’m 25 right now), game development for something like 6 years, maybe. But it wasn’t until a year ago maybe that I started to actually release and sell games. Mostly because my ambitions and skills didn’t match up before, but also because it has become much easier to release games to a big audience with all the mobile app stores and PC distribution stores like Desura. It’s a great time to be a game developer! It’s still not easy, though! :)
My post about cameras is done:
Earlier than I had anticipated :)
Hi, I would like to congratulate you on Rico, really nice game. I’ve only played the demo though. It was a bit of a challenge to make it work on Windows, but I’m a Java programmer myself, so… :)
Anyways, I would like to suggest to you to make The Unnamed to cross over obstacles that are only one tile tall, 8 pixels I presume. Also, I needed audio impact that I’ve lost heart, since if I’m in acid the only hint that I have is that a heart is missing from GUI and I’m watching something else or franticly pressing jump to get out of acid.
Keep up with good work!
When did you do “Planet Wars” ?
it’s very nice :DD
after last update (yesterday, think 1.20) very often when I switch off screen and go back to game again, i can see planets and ships, but ..they do not move….always on campaign mode, sometimes on skirmish as well.
new graphics bit strange…gotta get used to it. could be more levels in campaign.
also can’t wait for multiplayer mode :)
anyway – great game !!!!
Thanks for reporting this! :)
I’ve been working hard the last few days to get rid of these bugs. After that, multiplayer is next on my agenda.
hello Efrain here
great work i two am old school as to games back in 1980 been busy but when i have time i do play old school games i have idea for games in need of some one in working on a game 2D Platform like
I am really enjoying the game. It balances most of what makes for a successful platformer for me. My only complaint are the size and placement of the controls. While the controls are very responsive, I would like to see the next build include the ability to resize and reposition them. I’ve lost many lives because of the tiny buttons’ limited coverage area.
By the way, you should log onto TouchArcade.com where I am a member and more importantly there is a lively discussion going on about your game. Many devs have chimed in in the past and gleaned much encouragement on the current build and received ideas on how to improve their game.
i absolutely love rico a tale of two brothers! is there any kind of way i can download the music file of rico?
Music is made by an artist called Bunnymajs. You can find most of his stuff on YouTube for example.
Hey I really love nubs it feels a bit like swordigo which is top ten on iPad for me ,I think I will buy the game but how many hours of gameplay (roughly) is there and how many bosses and how many different puzzles are there ,I know it’s only 3.99 but so was strangers wrath (the only connection they have is the price and the feeling of quality and wanting to complete them,
Many thanks ,
Hey! Glad you like it! :)
If you start the game, you should see the percentage of completion you have reached. That should give you a clue on what to expect. I’d say the game is definitely 5 hours of playtime, probably more depending on your playstyle! :)
i had purcharses unlock nub adventure . but after purcharses it not unknow pleses tell me why
Sorry you’re having troubles! Do you mean you bought the unlock, but the game stayed locked? Have you tried the “Restore Purchases” button in the options-menu?
Yes I had try it is saying it is restore is successful .so what my money will deposits to bank or what will happen
I am asking that i had press restore purchased and it show me successful restore purchased . but i am saying that i had press it so my money will go to the bank where i had buy it or what .pleases tell me .
Do you want a refund? If so, are you on Android?
First of all thanks for making such a nice game which is Nubs Adventure.It shows how sagacious you are. Platformer games have always been my favorite especially if they have story.Hoping another platform game from you, maybe sequel of Nub…
Thanks and have a good day
Hello from Russia. Nubs Adventure is an excellent game. Thank you very much for your work. Will you do a sequel?
Thank you and greetings from Austria! :) No sequel planned yet, but I’m not counting it out.
We absolutely LOVE Rico! I’m just putting it on our new iPad Air 2 and though the app has loaded, it won’t actually get past the “loading…” Screen when selected. It just stays there until the unit times out. Also, we are only getting this far with the AppStore icon – the actual app button on the home screen flicks up then disappears! We are incredibly sad. Is there a fix for this!?
Hey! Unforuntately, Rico has problems running on newer iOS devices. I don’t think there’s anything I can do about that, sorry :(
I’m not sure if you still update Nubs Adventure, but I have encountered a somewhat game-breaking bug. If you look at the maps and start at Green Valley 1, head right 2 squares and up one. Almost all of that area is shifted to the left. Things like water and the shape of the terrain are slightly to the left. What I mean by the shape of the terrain being to the left is that the parts of the land that you can make contact with are shifted to the left but not the image of the land is in the right position. I managed to beat the level anyway but it was much more difficult that it should have been. I really like the game and plan on reaching 100% completion!
Hi! Yeah, that’s a bug! :(
But glad you managed to beat it anyway! I could argue it’s a feature ;)
Rico is an Android master piece!
I’d really like to collaborate with you in future projects if you need piano music. I compose relaxing-emotional piano songs and I’ll be so glad if you listen to it, and want to use it in any game (free, of course!).
Even I can compose something specific for a game or modify or re-master any of my old songs.
Please try it in Spotify:
I really hope you like it!
