Alfonzo's Arctic Adventure is a cool homebrew platformer coming to your NES

This sequel to Eskimo Bob has 90 levels and a lot of nice surprises to explore as Alfonso goes looking for his pal, Bob.
Last year we backed Tomas Guinan's prior game Eskimo Bob and loved it! You can never have too many inventive, fun platformer games for your NES. We're excited to back the kickstarter for Alfonzo's Arctic Adventure.

Alfonzo's Arctic Adventure fur NES It seems as though this sequel had taken the concept much farther with a world map, four playable characters, and secret exits and branching routes. With Eskimo Bob as a measure, we're stoked about Alfonzo's Arctic Adventure.

The game is now complete and fully playable. This is the same scenario under which his prior game was kickstarted and shipping was very prompt. I have a lot of confidence in Guinan's ability to deliver a high quality product. It should also be noted that this kickstarter has already met it's backing goal - i believe in the first 24 hours!

The kickstarter aides with physical assembly and shipping of the game carts. Definitely check out the campaign page and see if this looks like a game you'd back.

From the Alfonzo's Arctic Adventure Kickstarter page:
In Alfonzo's Arctic Adventure, you take the role of Alfonzo on a quest to find your missing best friend, Bob. Knowing that Bob's favorite food is fish, you decide to collect as many fish as you can while searching for your friend. With your trusty stick by your side, travel through over 90 levels filled with puzzles, traps, and enemies around every corner.

Luckily, you aren't alone on your adventure! You will meet new friends along the way, each with different abilities to help you on your quest. These include the power-punching Magnus, the near-invulnerable Fenwood, and the sword-wielding Girl.
