Teppodon is a fun sequel of sorts to Teppoman and Bimboman, two fun cartoony platformers from the same Japanese author. Created with Klik & Play game creation program, Teppodon offers smooth cartoon animations, excellent level designs, plenty of general improvements over the previous two games, and *very* challenging gameplay. |
You can now carry up to three weapons at once, and the game no longer automatically drops a weapon to the ground when you are out of ammo. You can now see the bullets that are being fired at you, and explore much larger and more detailed levels. There are also many more weapons than Teppoman, and the enemy AI has been improved greatly: enemies will now chase you to another screen if you run away, and call reinforcements when the going gets tough. The game is harder than Teppoman, though – it is so hard, in fact, that I never managed to beat level five, and I suspect only the most expert action gamers can. Regardless, if you enjoy side-scrolling platformers in general and especially if you love a challenge, Teppodon is another polished freeware title that is worthy of play and praise. Two thumbs up!
