Super Monkey's Paw is a love letter to some of my favorite games that have inspired me over the years. I love pixel art and development restrictions of old consoles like the GameBoy and SNES.

Please enjoy, and thank's for checking it out. Post that high score and time if you get to the end!

Wow, this was so fun and hilarious! Good theme interpretation, loved the sound effects and music. Took me a little bit to get used to controls and the whole "get bigger to pick up bigger things", but was super fun. Can definitely see this being an arcade game. Congrats on the high scores too. Played for the GitHub Game Off live stream:

Yaaaassss thank you so much for checking it out! What a wonderful thing to wake up to this!

Watching you play opened a floodgate of ideas to improve the experience thanks to your commentary. Confusion is bad for you but good for me heheh

You had one more level to go and I would've loved to see you finish the game, but thank you again - super helpful!
