Ziggy is a retro 2D platform game

Ziggy is a retro 2D platform game that will bring back waves of nostalgia for those of us who grew up on '80s games like Manic Miner. The game play is simple, but the levels are frustratingly challenging.

It's very much a case of trial and error on a lot of the levels. And whilst punishing, once you've figured out how to overcome the obstacles facing you, the game is challenging... but fair.

Your character has the ability to jump, double jump and dash. Dash means that you will rush forward a considerable distance. This can be used at any time... even when falling. So, you can jump off platforms and then dash forward to ensure you land on a safe platform below.

While the levels are punishing, the introduction of save points ensures that you don't have to restart the level each time you die. Personally these helped greatly to ensure that I never became that frustrated that I thought about switching the game off in anger.

A cheap and cheerful game that is just punishing enough to make you want to come back for more.
