Alex Adventure is a cute platformer, somewhat on a par with Lyle in Cube Sector in terms of creativity used for enemies and environment. Jumping feels a little strange at first but once you get past this, the gameplay focuses on running, jumping, shooting, exploring and solving small puzzles. Fortunately the gameplay mechanics actually work quite well and the game itself has a good deal of charm.

I like it a lot! Good level design and nice graphics and sound. I beat both worlds and I got 3 artifacts... apparantly there should be 6. Guess I've got some more playing to do.

Great game!

This is just lovely! It has a great sense of style and exploration to it.

I think i played the game through, at some point in both world 1 and 2 it throws you back to the title screen after that weird 3 windows cutscene.

This game is as understandable as a atari 2600 game. Still some great level design and exploring though.

Also, got 4 artifacts.

I found 5 artefacts so far. 2 in the first world and 3 in the second. Hmm... What am I missing?

You found five? I've only gotten two!

Great find Tim - do you have any more information about it? Is it basically complete or is it just a demo? Will we be seeing more from this guy?

I finally got all six - a wonderful game, thanks again Tim. It's just a shame it's so short...
