Paintown

Paintown

Paintown is a 2D side scrolling beatem-up game in the same genre as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Sega Genesis game, Streets of Rage.

This game is completely written from scratch and uses a modular system for loading new graphics.

The game features Adventure (street side-scrolling fighting) and versus mode (1 on 1 battles).

There's also a character editor and level editor. New characters, stages and enemies can be easily created. This makes the game extensively customizable, in the same spirit of games like Mugen.

If you like Streets of Rage or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, give Paintown a whirl.
