Donut Dodo is an old fashioned running and jumping game. Like games from the 80s arcades it's intentionally hard and requires practice (and dying a lot) to master. You play a Baker who has to run, jump, and climb to collect all donuts in each level as quick as you can. There are just five tough levels, each with online high score tables.

Play involves using the responsive moving and jumping controls to find a quick route around the level to collect the donuts. You need to think ahead while also keeping reactions sharp for all manner of enemies.

The result is a loving recreation of the sort of game found in the 80s or on the Amiga or Atari ST, right down to the screen shape and pixel perfect 16-colour graphics.
