If the pixelated hero from Shovel Knight ever decided to hone his platforming skills further, he would most certainly do so in Betomis on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch or PC. With a protagonist eerily similar to such a dashing warrior, and dozens of stages to take on, this is one for the platforming enthusiast in us all.
Available now on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC platforms, Betomis from Eastasiasoft has one key trick up its sleeve. Light is incredibly scarce in these single-screen platforming challenges, making the pinpoint jumps even harder to pull off.
What Betomis certainly does not lack is a range of fatal obstacles, from the classic spinning blades to huge carnivorous plants, always waiting to gobble you up.
With your trusty knight’s sword and shield to keep foes at bay, as well as the reliable head-stomp to remove them from the field, you can always take the fight to your tormentors, if you dare!
- Explore dozens of single-screen platforming stages in pixel art style!
- Overcome each dungeon’s challenges by finding weapons and keys.
- Slay roving creatures and carnivorous plants!
- Use double jumps to reach tricky platforms and avoid deadly traps.
- Retry dungeons immediately upon death without annoying load times!

Once there, it’ll be a hop, skip and a jump over to our full review of Betomis on Xbox, coming soon.
Explore dark dungeons as a valiant knight and survive using your wits and limited resources!
Enter the tricky pixel art dungeons of Betomis, where you’ll need to carefully observe and explore your surroundings in order to escape! Betomis is a retro 2D action platformer where each chamber of the sprawling dungeon is a single screen of environmental puzzling. Light is limited. Weapons are scarce. But deadly hazards are aplenty, from spikes and spinning saw blades to creatures and carnivorous plants!
Take the role of a valiant knight as you creep through the corners of each maze-like dungeon, picking up an axe and shield to defeat foes that stand in your way, hopping on the heads of monsters when you’re disarmed and locating keys to open the door to the next chamber, each more challenging than the one before. Use double jumps to avoid traps and reach obscured platforms. But don’t worry too much… If you do fall victim to the dungeon’s many perils, you’ll instantly restart at the last door, allowing you to try as many times as it takes!
