The Adventure Pals is an action-oriented Platform Game developed by Sydney, Australia-based indie developer Massive Monster. It is a recreation of a Flash game Super Adventure Pals.

You play as Wilton, who is celebrating his 16th birthday with his father, when the latter gets "dad-napped", forcing you to go on adventure to rescue him.

It was released on April 3rd, 2018 for PC, PS4, X Box One and Nintendo Switch. You can buy it on Steam here.

The Adventure Pals provides examples of:

  • Advancing Boss of Doom: The Veggiesaurus. You can only out run it before it is eaten alive by an NPC at the end of the level.
  • Big Boo's Haunt: Shady Willows, one of the levels in Treevale, takes place in a cemetery.
  • Chain Lightning: Lightning Damage, one of the enchantments from a red chest, attacks nearby foes in addition to the one who's under attack.
  • Damage Over Time: Characters can be inflicted with Poison or Fire that causes them to take small damage every few seconds.
  • Damn You, Muscle Memory!: On a controller hitting B is almost always "close the current menu". However, in this game pressing B while you have your inventory open instead uses the currently selected item, resulting in plenty of wasted bombs and potions.
