Paris – February 28, 2013

Penumbear , developed by Taco Graveyard and published by BulkyPix is now live on the App Store !

Watch the trailer here ==>

Penumbear is an immersive experience that recalls the best of classic platformers while presenting something new and exciting for the genre.

Penumbear is a classic platformer with an emphasis on danger, exploration and puzzle solving. Each of the game’s 100 levels combine lights and blocks to create drastically different layouts for Penumbear to explore as he tries to find his way out of the dark castle.

Hundreds of fellow bears are hidden through the castle and it’s up to Penumbear to save them all. Secrets are in every corner; secret levels, warp zones, special achievement bears and especially elusive Golden bears. Taking the time to fully explore the castle’s many levels will prove rewarding!



  • The ability to walk on light and shadows, you’ll look at your surroundings in a new way.
  • Over 100 levels, full of exploration and danger.
  • Secrets: hidden levels, bonus bears, achievements, and an unlockable character.
  • Challenging - prepare to die many times as you learn your way around the castle!
  • Giant bosses blocking your path at the end of each area.
