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, Xbox 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.
