great game :) just wondering the first release was 2020 is this correct ?

Yes. Started out on NES cartridge


cool many thanks for the info. keep up the good work :) 


Very cool  game, congrats

Thanks so much!

Wasn't there supposed to be a Steam version? According to the Kickstarter tiers there was.

Yes. That is in the works.


is there a manual?

Not published online. There is one that is included with the Complete In Box Cartridge version.

Bummer, ok. I was a digital kickstarter backer and was just wondering.

We appreciate the support so much. We will look into getting some sort of manual online ASAP

That’s great, looking forward to it!

Manual is now available above on this page. Cheers!

hello, is there any progress on the manual?  I am playing the game but would like some info on power system, items, and such.  any faq or manual would be extremely helpful.

If you purchased the game there is a separate pdf manual. 


If you like Mega Man on the NES, Trophy is a very competent release. The level design, I thought, was solid, but of course most rewarding were the huge boss sprites.

I got really into this.

why it don't open i buy it 

it open picture only how i can fix that


Awesome, congrats on the release!
