A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

PoPo Panic is a one screen arcade-like side-scroller starring a cool cop and a bunch of crooks! Zap and knockout all the baddies in four unique zones to save the city!

  • Classic arcade "pick up and play" action
  • Chase some fairly smart (but pretty dumb) goons
  • Line up your taser shots for some sick trick shots
  • Flow with a deceptively simple move set
  • Kick and stomp baddies off-screen
  • Test your skills in the challenge levels
  • Customize your difficulty with the Options menu

The chase is on! The trigger happy goons may have taken over the city, but Officer Cherry and Scout have a counter attack that will take down the crime organization once and for all. It's time for operation rooftop: chase, tase, and kick the enemies into Scout's jail car one by one. The mission is a risky one, but with Officer's Cherry's lucky taser, acrobatic moves, and crafty tactics, it's just another day of the job.

PoPo Panic started out as our first game jam project. What we thought would be a small prototype one weekend in highschool turned into a fully fledged project we'd add to bit by bit during our busy college lives for the next 4 years.

What came of it was a short but polished one screen arcade game inspired by the movement polish of Donkey Kong '94, theming of Elevator Action, and core "stun elimination" mechanic  form Mario Bros.

We really wanted to do our take on classic arcade action by designing a simple yet deep movement system, amplifying kinesthetics/game feel, and a poppy candy colored pixel art style that suite the game's cartoonish tone.
