Wear the skulls of your fallen foes!

Take control of an alive hive-mind who murders bosses, absorbs their consciousness and assimilates their abilities by wearing their skulls! The abilities you steal allow you to traverse the world in new and exciting ways while also helping you destroy future opponents more efficiently. Make every inch of the alien planet your playground as you learn its secrets and use them to your advantage.

Zapling Bygone is a twisted side-scrolling “metroidvania” action-adventure presented in fluid pixel art style! Use Zapling’s sticky tentacles to jump and climb around intertwined tunnels and tricky underground chambers across 6 unique biomes, each with their own enemies, bosses and backstory. Hunt down the big baddies, kill them and wear their skulls to absorb new skills and gain access to their memories, unlocking comic strip cinematics recalling major events in their lives. Find game-changing mutations to modify and enhance your abilities, trade plasma for ancient keys and more!
