Penumbear awakens in a dark castle basement, completely alone aside from a small purple firefly to keep him company. Luckily this firefly has a special ability to turn lights off and on, and Penumbear has his own unique ability to walk on the lines where shadow and light meet!
PENUMBEAR is a classic platformer with an emphasis on danger, exploration and puzzle solving. Each of the game’s 100 levels combine lights and blocks to create drastically different layouts for Penumbear to explore as he tries to find his way out of the dark castle.
He’ll explore the castle’s basement with it’s shadowy creatures and tentacles, before traveling to the grimy and spiky dungeon, the vast cavern, up the fireplace and through the tower to reach his freedom. Along the way he’ll encounter increasingly vicious monsters, fiendish puzzles, and gigantic bosses determined to stop his progress.
Hundreds of fellow bears are hidden through the castle and it’s up to Penumbear to save them all. Secrets are in every corner; secret levels, warp zones, special achievement bears and especially elusive Golden bears. Taking the time to fully explore the castle’s many levels will prove rewarding!
Penumbear is an immersive experience that recalls the best of classic platformers while presenting something new and exciting for the genre.

Penumbear is one of only a handful of games that have made it to my top 10 favorites of 2013 list. If you're a fan of platformers, it's a must own. Taco Graveyard nailed the controls, the atmosphere, physics... and the gameplay is incredibly solid with loads of replay value in finding bears (and even harder to find GOLDEN bears) hidden throughout the levels. Couple all of this with 30 GameCenter Achievements, no IAPs and the ability to record and share your playthroughs (by level), and this is as solid as an indie game can get. I can definitely see why Bulkypix picked it up as publisher. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
I take back my 5 star rating. It's becoming obvious (in the caverns) that I'm spending more and more of my time feeling frustrated and not having fun. I've been working on this game for weeks now and I'm still only in the caverns.
"Babble" is an example of an excruciatingly difficult level, and it's not even a boss level. I've played penumbear this long, I've got the game mechanics down, but these levels are still so unrelentingly hard that I've lost interest in the game.
Don't let the cute bear character fool you into thinking this is some kind of easy game. One of the deepest, most challenging touchscreen exploring platformers I've ever seen. Controls are tight and responsive, and the levels are exceptionally well designed. Worth the money. Buy it. Go Penumbear!
