Description

Ayo the Clown is a 2.5D side-scrolling platformer reminiscent of genre favorites like Mario and Donkey Kong. What sets Ayo the Clown apart from traditional platformers is its sense of adventure, light puzzle facets, and RPG elements.Like the Legend of Zelda series, Ayo’s potential isn’t realized at the game’s offset. You will collect skill upgrades and extra hearts that add to your overall life as you progress through this lush world.

History

Ayo the Clown has been merely an idea from three years ago if not for all the hardwork that Xiu had put in to make it into a reality. Originally made for Mobile but we realize that we really wanted a full featured action platformer that we all loved and grew up with. We here at Cloud M1 all have a lot of appreciation and admiration for the developers of the old, who did so much with so little. It's also how we realized how important that every small detail is very important to the whole game. We had spent countless hours just on how Ayo moves based on player input just to get the right feel. The look of the game as well, we wanted it to be pleasant yet unique. Being an indie studio and developing the entire game inhouse has been a long and tiresome journey but we had finally decided to showcase our progress in the world. We hope the players enjoy this game as much as we do.
