Game overview

Play as Horo, collect the 12 zodiac signs, pet secret animals, and unlock the 13th zodiac in this 2D retro platformer with 12 unique levels and customizable upgrades.

Get ready to jump into the nostalgia with Horoscopicus - the 2D platformer inspired by a popular portable console from the 90s. Immerse yourself in the retro world and control Horo who sets out on a journey to collect the 12 zodiac signs and uncover the mystery of the 13th zodiac. Don't forget to pet the 12 hidden animals along the way! Explore 12 levels, each inspired by their own zodiac sign. Plus, there are special versions to discover! The best part? You get to choose your own path and play the levels in any order you like. Upgrade your character with 4 different types, which also changes their appearance to match the upgrades you choose. But wait, there's more! Find and pet 12 different secret animals, and enjoy the selectable screen borders (hint: discover how to change them). Look out for nods to other games and media throughout the game. The controls are simple, with only a Jump, Attack, and directional keys needed to move around. For those challenging sections, there's an assist/accessibility mode to help you out. Enjoy an amazingly unique soundtrack by TheLuzical, specially tailored for the game. The game features only one difficulty to ensure that the experience remains as intended. It's also speedrun friendly since enemies follow a specific cycle. The gameplay should take around 3 hours, but it varies depending on each player's experience. It's worth noting that the game was mostly a solo project, and although there was some outside help, it retains a traditional indie quality. But that doesn't take away from the joy of playing the game. Give Horoscopicus a go and enjoy the journey!
