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.

Grindingly frustrating

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.

Sorry guys.

Fantastic Game

This is a great game in many respects. It has great graphics, good controls, and a decent amount of challenge. However, it is beatable (I've beat 100% of it) and is not exactly impossible. My only complaint is that some of the achievements don't appear when I accomplish something, as well as a couple other minor glitches, but it is a great game nonetheless, and would definitely recommend to anyone.


In the same league as Swordigo, Incoboto and the ill-fated Project Belle, Penumbear is a defining platformer for not only iOS, but the genre itself. Minus the lame pop-up ads upon start-up that Bulkypix added in a PAID game (apparently there if you haven't played for a certain period of time, or something similar) the game is a masterpiece from head to toe. Challenging, beautiful and absolutely brimming with personality, Penumbear is a must have.
