This is the most difficult action game in the world. It is full of infinite challenge and traps, made for only the most experienced gamers. If you think you have what it takes give it a try. But please don't break your phone. ^_^

Gameplay Description

You control a little cat inspired my a popular Japanese emoji. You task is to save the world from the troll chicken who was turned the world's inhabitants evil. There are a lot of traps placed in places you wouldn't expect. You will fail a lot, but finally clearing a level feels so good.

The gameplay is in the style of old platformers, but a lot more coordination is required and the jumps need to be perfectly timed. If you played other rage games you should be just fine.

Syobon Action (known as "Cat Mario" or "Neko Mario") is a Jump 'n' Run Game parody. The traps are different from what you would expect from a jump and run game. Skill and a bit of imagination are needed and nerves of steel because it can be frustrating at times (which makes the game so addicting).

Syobon Action was created by a Japanese developer named ちく (Chiku) over the course of three days in February of 2007. The game was inspired by a flash game titled The Big Adventure of a Dead End Life (人生オワタ\(^o^)/の大冒険 Jinsei Owata no Daibōken?),which was often played by members on the text board 2chan.

Syobon Action 2 HD expands on the original and brings a new adventure for you to enjoy.

Test to see how seriously you take yourself

If you delete the app after dying less than 10 times, you might take your gaming (and/or yourself) too seriously.
What a humbling set of pranks this game is.
You will die. A lot. It's great.
Minus one star for some minor bugs, like in app purchases not working after multiple installs. No clear way in app or on their website to contact the devs.
Very good. Recommended.

Awesome, but still buggy..

Incredible game concept, like impossible Mario. I love it!

Controls could be customizable (bigger or smaller). Also, controls should be made that you can "swipe" between forward and back and it would actually work. Right now if you swipe from one direction to the other it doesn't work. You need to actually press the button by releasing your finger first.

Another thing is the continue button. It doesn't work (yes I got credits!)

Besides all these there are some other things that can improve. But very good game! Love it.

Unity3D Looks Awesome

I started playing after the Unity3D update. The graphics look beautiful, but the levels are just as torturing as what Syobon Action is known for lol.
