Depot Games: Alex the Allegator 4

Current Version: 1.1

Project Status: Completed

Highest Popularity: #1 during January 2011

Links: Web Site

Category: Platform

Developers: Johan Peitz

Ports: Windows

Source Code: Available

Author's Description: Alex the Allegator 4 is a true jump'n'run, just like the old classic ones. Guide Alex through the jungle in order to save his girlfriend Lola from evil humans who want to make a bag of her.

Alex the Allegator 4 is a very small game. It runs in a very low resolution with only four colors and will not provide you with any real time video or 3D effects. Nor will it snare you with a compelling storyline. It's only a short platform game with a few tricks up it's sleeve. We're sure you'll like it.

The download includes a built in editor where you can create and play your own levels.

Binaries for Mac OSX and BeOS available from web site.

Public Opinion
Overall Rating: 9.5
  • 10Alex makes me smile :) The 'limitations' create a nice effect and are done right to make an entertaining game.
  • 10It's awsome, gameplay, graphix, and music !
  • 9Just finished playing this on my GP2X, it ran rather well aside from minor skipping (which caused me to die a few times), and aside from a few other bugs I ran into it was definetely and enjoyable and well written game.
