A downloadable bonafide NES game

Play alone or with a friend as you help Kaylee–and her brother, Justice–run, jump, duck, and climb their way out of perilous mines and up a massive tower!

Collect gold, uncover diamonds, reveal secrets, and unlock new characters as you traverse the treacherous terrain and avoid the creepy crawlies that lie ahead!


  • NES ROM - Play it how you want—on a flash cart or emulator of your choice.
  • Over 50 screens of classic platforming action
  • 2-player arcade-style co-op
  • 4 additional unlockable character pairs
  • Bonus Game - Download Pack also includes 2016's Cowlitz Gamers Adventure, the game's predecessor.

Have you made a donation to The Arc of Cowlitz County yet? 

If so, thank you very much. If not, one would be highly appreciated. If you can't, that's okay, we understand and want you to enjoy our game anyway.

To play your downloaded titles, use an NES emulator of your choice (I like Nestopia) or a flash cart such as the Everdrive or PowerPak for your NES, Famicom, or AVS.
