You're a chubby, rosy-cheeked bear and, naturally, you like to eat. That's how you end up munching fruit on board of Captain Shiphead's ship headed for Slime Island (yeah, I'm serious). Unfortunately, you are discovered and thrown into Slime Prince's dungeon. Fortunately, slime guards being as stupid as they are, you manage to escape. You meet a treasure chest, another prisoner, and decide to team up with him, making the silliest superhero duo since Batman and Robin. You will fight your way through the castle and amass a pile of gold, using [arrow] keys to move, [spacebar] to jump and [Z] to run. The gold coins also function as your hit points, so you should try to get as much as you can. Keep an eye out for gems, worth ten coins, which are usually hidden in wall caches and quite easy to miss.
Treasure Bear is very beautiful and terrifically quirky at the same time. It sort of feels like a game you could have invented when you were five and playing with your plush toys, with your unbridled imagination and indifference towards logical reasoning. The levels are nicely (and hilariously) detailed and the characters reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland. The game is shorter than it could be, but that ensures that the simple gameplay never outstays its welcome. Also, it's still a bit rough, meaning that there might be a glitch or two here and there, but it definitely has enough redeeming virtues to make up for that. It's heaps of fun, a joy to behold, and it was about time someone made a game featuring one-eyed slimy cats as villains.
