GunHero is a 2D-action-platformer-shooter filled with handcrafted levels set in various environments, where each one contains its own unique dangers. Your task is simple: save the world from the evil Count Darkcape.

  • Shoot your way through enemy troops, pick up weapons from your dead foes, yield destruction with your grenades and become victorious with the help of your shield! But don't forget about the prisoners and hostages that desperately need your help!
  • Watch out for the deadly traps and obstacles! Spike balls are much harder to dodge than you'd think, and is there anything more dangerous than a huge blade? Well, maybe a spinning laser beam, or a missile launcher. You can travel on rotating and moving platforms, climb ladders or fly using the large propellers. Just don't get trapped on the roof of an elevator as death by getting crushed between an elevator and a wall is not a pleasant death.
  • Having trouble? Could the world maybe use a few heroes more? Just invite a few of your favorite friends over for some good old-fashioned couch co-op! Enemies won't stand a chance against you.

After working on the game for almost three years, I've just released GunHero on Steam!


GunHero is a 2D-action-platformer-shooter filled with handcrafted levels set in various environments, where each one contains its own unique dangers. Your task is simple: save the world from the evil Count Darkcape.

Here's the release trailer for the game which I'm really proud of.


The core features of the game are:

  • Over 100 handcrafted levels set in five different environments
  • Multiple weapons to choose from
  • Grenades and explosions
  • Fast, satisfying combat with permanent blood decals
  • Multiple enemy types, including generals, bazooka men and grenadiers
  • Laser beams, elevators and missile launchers
  • Double jumping and ladder climbing
  • Powerup shield to block incoming damage
  • Propellers, blade spinners and tanks
  • Ferris wheels, lava and spike balls
  • Flame traps, trampolines and fireball cannons

Here's a screenshot of the game taken in October, 2014. The game has definitely come an incredibly long way. I've improved in art a whole lot as you can probably easily see.

For reference, here's a screenshot of the game in its current state:

The game has been developed completely by me. I consider programming my strongest area, and that's definitely also what I enjoy doing the most. Making the music for the game was definitely one of the most interesting challenges, given that I hadn't really made any music on a computer before. I've played the guitar for a little over five years so luckily I had some musical background which meant that I didn't have to start from zero. As for the art, as mentioned above, I've definitely come a long way on it. I'm extremely proud of some of the things I drew for the later portion of the game which I won't spoil you here.
