Barry's sister, Mary, has been captured by a mysterious foe, and you must rescue her!

Run, jump, and stomp the baddies who stand in your way, and get to the end of each level unscathed!

HUGE THANKS once again to Scott Semanski for making the wonderful tunes you hear in this game! Check out his soundcloud for more tracks by him!

This is my second GB Studio developed game. Robby's Day Out took a week to make, but Cherry Rescue! took almost 2 months and a half! I aim to make my games bigger than the previous one.

With the new platformer engine in GB Studio, I was eager to design a lot of new graphics, levels, and scripts, and was excited to have Scott composing once again!

I hope you enjoy Cherry Rescue!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This game was developed using the GB Studio 2 beta platformer engine, which is still in development. Until the full version of GB Studio 2 is available, I cannot alter the physics or actor collision detection as of right now.


  • 0.9 - adjusted Level 5's layout for safer navigation, reduced spike amount

I love the game, the gameplay and characters movement is awesome! 

But im very bad at it


I literally made an account to say this is such a cute little game and I'm happy it exists <3


Este juego me sorprendió, al principio no lo iba a descargar porque se veía simple, pero lo descargué y me gustó mucho. Me recuerda a Kirby y Mario bros


i know this game is a rip off to kirby


wait, i commented in itch for the first time?, wow


Will we ever get a "Cherry Rescue! 2" or a remake for it with the GBC update?? I'd love to see this game in colors <3

I'll most likely return to game making when I have the motivation and energy in the future. For now, I'm focusing on commissions and personal artworks.

Fair enough, keep the  great work :D

Is a sequel planned for the future?

Possibly, if I get the motivation to make a game again, and have an idea on what to make.

what software did you use to make the cutscenes and boxart?

I used GB Studio for the in-game programming and cutscenes, and Affinity Designer + Photo for the graphic design box art.

K thanks!

Is the whole game for sale with its files and its programming?


No sequel for the game ?

u should add a save system ngl

The platform placement made the early game interesting, and I liked the characters! The mine level was difficult because I couldn't see what was below. All in all a very well fleshed out game.


eaugh why does Barry slide after he moves? It's killed me like 23 times -__-

Which engine did you use for this? Loving the art.

Made with GB Studio 2.0 beta.

Changing the rules of the game after 5 levels? For shame. Having to start the whole level over is ridiculous either way.

Plus, the sticky movement was a pain to begin with.

I appreciate the jump though.

lol i agree the physics are jank but other than that, just git gud at the game noob :)


speedrunning the game ITS RAGE.

dis goim veri  good


Dude, thank you for making this! Its honestly a really fun Kirby style game.

It reminds me a lot of Kirby too!

man that last level was tough, *SPOILER* I love how the bird looks at you when you start climbing :) thank you!


I'd love to buy a physical release of this game! It's adorable!!!

At the end of 1 - Grasslands, I jumped on the guy that shoots stuff and simultaneously won, and it ended up crashing. :/


mc lovin this. you should release a color version with bonus content

Cherry Rescue DX

great music!

Great job. The addition of music makes it really nice too.

Nice game.


this autully good kinda liek that little adventure best game



Love the music and level design, this is great!


Really fun, lots of level   variety and nice lil challenge!


This is amazing! 

Great gameboy game! It is in my Top 5 of the week!

Check my video!

Very good game.

Took me right back to my Gameboy days in the 90s... super fun to play, even though I am terrible at platformers!

Cherry Rescue definitely captures that classic GameBoy feeling in both visuals and general gameplay. Though the levels felt a bit short, they still stirred much nostalgia for the old games, and I like that in this sort of creation. The music was pretty good, too.

Good job, dev.

Super fun, really dope art. The only issue I ran into was that the controls are really slidey. It would keep moving after I let go of the right and left arrows.

Super cute! I played Robby's day out and saw your progress updates for cherry rescue in the GB studio discord- love the artwork especially :)


land 5 is impossable rn
