Rico is a pixelated platformer an interesting plot
Rico and Nameless are brothers representing Evil and Good, as a pixelated version of Cain and Abel. An eternal struggle that got unbalanced when Rico (the black evil brother) took Nameless' powers away. You embody Nameless (the white good brother) in the crusade to recover his powers.
Thus, you will have to run across the levels, jump over obstacles, climb mountains, explore caves, swim through water... and many more. Depending on the difficulty level you choose, falling will hurt or not, you'll have endless lives or not. Select the one you think you're able to beat and be ready to fly with a jetpack, hop on moving platforms and jump over acid pits.
Game's difficulty increases after each level, so you better find upgrades to boost your skills or there'll be no way to surpass new challenges. There are four difficulty levels and 8 levels (more are included in the full version).
If you're a pixels lover, you're going to freak out with this game. You can even count them on your fingers. Controls are basic: two direction arrows and a button for jumping. That's it. Good game.

Love it. Takes me back to the old zx spectrum days
Tried based on high score, after 4 levels seems like just a boring low "collect the things" budget platformer with a placeholder plot. Do not see appeal.
This is a very good game , its old school style and easy playability make it very awesome! The jetpack is so fun! And Rico is so sneaky! You have to bring balance back to the universe by defeating you're evil brother and restore power back to the light si
Really tight controls and nice old school style looks/gameplay. Great game.
Great Metroidvania platformer. Nice controls and paced perfectly for touch screen, not like so many others where you're constantly wishing you had a controller. If you liked Knytt or Cave Story you'll like this.
