Live the Venture Kid adventure on iOS January 14th

Published On January 13, 2016 | By Kirk Hiner | iPhone/iPad

Game developers are romantics, apparently. We often receive press releases about games that are “love letters” to various systems and genres, and we think that’s great; the world could use more love. And if you’re the type of person who enjoys receiving love letters, FDG Entertainment’s Venture Kid was written for you.

Venture Kid

Harking back to the days of 8-bit platformers on the NES, Venture Kid promises “… excellent level design, highly entertaining action levels, responsive controls and a great variety of bosses.” And as was usually the case with such games, Venture Kid was developed by a small team with the goal to rekindle a series that they feel was one of the all time greats…a series that looked quite a bit like this.

Cripes…I sure that kind of action supports MFi controllers. Oh, hey…

Grab your controller, blow the dust of the D-Pad and travel back through time. Venture Kid is here to deliver! Your Mission: The evil Dr. Teklov is about to build a secret weapon, disguised in his huge space fortress. Time is running out but our hero Andy stepped up to defeat him and fight his way through Teklovs minions. Join Andy and prepare yourself for a dangerous journey that demands great skill and determination. Will you succeed?

Venture Kid will be available for iOS tomorrow, January 14th, for $0.99 in the iTunes App Store. For more information, visit
