Bacon Man: An Adventure is a 3D side-scrolling Platform Game by Skymap Games.

After the death of King Roast Beef, his grandson, Bacon Man, is next in line to rule, regardless of it being his top priority. However, the ruler of the kingdom of Nomround is quick to frame Bacon Man of the king's murder. In his place, the Pork King is put on the meat throne, to maintain food growth, and an ally. Bacon Man declares the food kings his enemies, and is banished to the freezer for his troubles.

Now, Bacon Man is on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge against the food kings, and determined to get back at those who put him behind bars.

The game was funded by Kickstarter on August 15th, 2014, and released on March 6th, 2018.

Bacon Man: An Adventure contains examples of:

  • Acrofatic: Lard Lass is a somewhat downplayed example; she is slower than the other playable characters, but the fact she can do things like wall jumps and dashes with the best of them qualifies her for this trope.
  • Alliterative Name: One of the other playable characters is called Lard Lass.
  • Anthropomorphic Food: Bacon Man is a strip of bacon with a body, and almost all of the characters in the game are named and/or modeled after different foods.
  • Clear My Name: Bacon Man is framed for the murder of his grandfather, King Roast Beef.
  • Kick Chick: Lard Lass fights with almost exclusively kicks; despite how short they are, she makes good use of them.
  • Glass Cannon: Feta the samurai has the lowest health pool, but deals the highest amount of damage to compensate.
  • The Many Deaths of You: And how. Bacon Man is a tough as nails platformer, but even by that logic, the difficulty is through the roof. It's so easy to die, there's even an achievement for dying 100 times, which you'll end up receiving within the first two levels of the game.
  • Primary-Color Champion: As seen in the page image, Bacon Man wears red, white, and blue.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: The whole game is about getting revenge against everyone who framed him for his grandfather's murder.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Two of Bacon Man's alternate skins make him look like Papyrus and Earthworm Jim.
    • Lard Lass has alternate skins referencing Proto Man and Batgirl.
  • Stone Wall: Lard Lass has easily the most health of the playable characters, but her power in both her kicks and Weapons is nothing to write home about, although it can be improved through the levelling system.
  • Spikes of Doom: These are a regular presence on the levels, be they stalactites, metal spikes or something else.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: Bacon Man' upper body is larger than his lower body.
