Ever miss being a child, playing games at your grandma's or in your old bedroom? Well, I got you covered!

The Adventures of Elena Temple is the classic you never knew existed. And the best part is that you can play it on virtual old machines that kind of sort of maybe existed. It's not like you can remember for sure anyway, right?

The game is a monochromatic puzzle platformer made to look as if it were created in the 80s. Overcome obstacles, figure out how to collect all the coins, find all the gems and remember your childhood while doing it! You progress through the game's world through non-linear exploration and, if you're paying attention, there are some secrets for you to find.


  • A dungeon of 50+ screens to overcome, each its own mini-level
  • Open exploration, you choose which way to go, but don't worry, a helpful map is just one button away
  • Challenging, old-school platforming
  • Collect as many coins as you want, but we both  know you'll get them all, you're a completionist, don't even try to deny it!
  • Coins will make you rich, but there's no escaping the dungeon without all the gems
  • Secrets for the more observant player
  • Best of all, you can play the game on any of the included 7 virtual old machines, from the Pomo D'or 4, to Maple and Some Toy and all the way to the NS-Bos PC
