A downloadable game for Windows

Super Obstacle Adventure is a freeware 2D side-scrolling platformer game for the PC. You play as Mars, Skull, and Swirly, a group of friends trying to make their way home through worlds filled with bombs, landmines, freeze orbs, bouncing spike balls, and even exploding jump pads!

With lots of challenging levels, tons of obstacles to overcome, and a handful of Easter eggs, this game is a salute to the 16-bit era of gaming.
