Description

In Busy Busy Beaver, you control Justin. Help this agile beaver run, jump, and eat his way through 30 levels! Justin has one goal in life: do-it-yourself home renovations! Whether it's an extra bedroom, garage or home theater, this beaver won't return home until he has all the wood he needs for his next big project.


CONTROLS

  • W / Up / Space — Jump
  • A / Left — Move Left
  • D / Right — Move Right
  • S / Down — Duck
  • Z / Shift — Eat
  • R — Restart Level
  • M — Mute
  • Esc — Exit To Menu

HELP

Tap Jump for a small hop. Hold Jump for a large jump.

If you're standing in front of a wooden block, hold Eat to eat the block. If you're standing on top of a wooden block, hold Duck and hold Eat to eat the block.


CHEATS

Hold B and left click on Justin to skip the level. This is intended for players who are really, really stuck on a level and want to see the rest of the game. Skipping a lot of levels will probably lead to a less enjoyable game.

foopy64 (James Miller) 8 10 8 8 9 9 7 10 9 Another amazing game from managore. A great puzzle platformer with nice controls and mechanics. The art is fantastic, probably more so than the gameplay. Also the final boss was quite the surprise. Reminded me of StreemerZ. My only complaint is that the crazy ass camera gave me a headache.
momspaghetti (Daniel Sitnick) 8 9 6 7 4 7 8 6 10 This is one of the best games here by far. It looks great, with very good quality pixel art. Everything goes well together with the color pallet you chose, and there are small visual aesthetics and some attention to detail that really goes a long way. I don't know if you made this soundtrack but it's very nice as well. The fact that this was a solo project as well is especially impressive. Great work, this is a nice breath of fresh air after "some" games

    Crazy amounts of polish for a jam game. I'm liking the simplicity of the sprite work too.

    This looks like a great game, but unfortunately I could not play it on linux via wine. Perhaps make a video play through?

    Fantastic! Simply stunning. So cleanly done as well!
