Arcade Game - Dr. Octopus Darkling

The infamous Dr Octopus has ended up stuck in a forested and mountainous world covered in darkness, with rivers choked with poison. In Dr Octopus Darkling it is up to you to help Dr Octopus break free of this shadowed world. Help the Dr dodge and avoid mindless minions and murderous bats, jump between platforms and over gorges, and cling to hanging poles as he tries to escape. Dr Octopus Darkling is an exciting pixel-style 2D platformer that will offer hours of entertainment.

How to play: Your goal is to keep the Dr alive while guiding him through treacherous maps in his search for a way out. Use the A and D keys/left and right arrow keys to move the Dr left and right, and the W/up arrow key to perform a jump (pressing twice to do a double jump). On mobile, tap the onscreen controls. If the Dr falls or is killed by a monster, you will need to repeat the level from the beginning.

Just as the Dr is not invincible, the same can be said about the monsters. Try jumping and landing on top of them to kill them.

Dr Octopus Darkling can be played on desktop and mobile browsers.
