The Players have spoken! Read what they have to say...

"This is the best side-scroller I've ever played on the iPhone"- AppVee.com

* "...The Graphics, Level of Detail, and Style is unheard of from indie developers"

-The Dingadergen (YouTube Reviewer)

* "Bottom line, if you like Metroidvania games or platformers, this is a ridiculous bargain... This game seems more like something that would go for $2.99-$4.99, imo."

-medianotzu (TA Customer Review)

* "This game feels like a megaman or metroid game, but plays like a game all its own!"

-Megasamus1 (Appstore Review)

GROKION EPISODE 01: INCEPTION

In a global exodus, mankind’s elite abandons earth boarding vessel 144k, the Covenant Ark, on route to the moon in hope of salvation via an experimental lunar biosphere pioneered by Dr. Savain.

The Moon Biosphere Programme, developed to provide habitable atmospheric conditions and an independently sustainable environment on the moon, is largely a mystery – utilizing experimental materials and technologies with power drawn from energy sources of unknown origin.

As the 144k makes way to the biosphere, chaos is erupting - the artificial ecosystem has become unstable, satellites, weapons and technology are failing and previously harmless fauna and flora are mutating into powerful creatures!

You are LDU-1 – a Lunar Defense Unit designed by Dr. Savain and the very last unit standing in a fleet of security bots. Your mission is to find Dr. Savain and restore order to the biosphere before the exiled arrive, enabling them to land safely.

Grokion is an iconic action-adventure game inspired by the dark explorations of Metroid and intense platforming of Mega Man. Entwining brilliant modern game-play mechanics, physics-based puzzles and pure old-school styling, it delivers a nostalgic yet progressive gaming experience.
