Happy Chinese New Year Everybody...!

...or will it be? Someone has kidnapped the parade performers and replaced them with evil imposters. Only one kind of warrior can save the celebration now... a badminton warrior!

I am proud to announce Badminton Warrior Chinese New Year Edition. This version contains a completely new stage with firecrackers, red lanterns, dragons, and more. Enemies have been redesigned with a Chinese New Year theme to them plus an additional enemy type was created just for this level. There is also a brand new boss battle at the end with a funny twist.

Celebrate the holidays by smacking projectiles at opponents, testing your skill against new obstacles, and experiencing a lighthearted story that will put a smile on your face. I hope you enjoy this new edition!   

(Includes the original game that has sixteen unique levels plus a tutorial. Everything below this is about the original game.)



One fine morning, Ral, Mindy, AJ, and Jing go to play badminton when an evil being appears and kidnaps Mindy. Things seem pretty grim until a mysterious, old man named Lao Pi materializes and offers Ral an enchanted badminton racquet. He explains that the racquet can deflect any attack back at an enemy but cannot do direct damage by itself. Determined to rescue his friend, Ral embarks on a journey which will take him from the clouds in the sky to the depths of Hades. 

Navigate through intense, heart pounding traps and obstacles. Discover new and interesting ways to defeat your enemies. Meet a crazy cast of characters including a hockey player who thinks he is a god, a lacrosse player running an insane asylum, and a basketball player who turns his trophy into an actual wife. Experience a storyline that pokes fun of sports figures, video games, and pop culture in general. Most importantly, become the greatest warrior of all time... a badminton warrior!



• 2D action platforming with a unique game mechanic. You can clear, drive, and smash projectiles at your enemies, but your racquet cannot harm anything by itself.

• Simple controls (just a swing and a jump button).

• Traps and puzzles that require quick thinking and reflexes to overcome.

• Sports themed levels with a variety of oddball enemies.

• Some games claim to have "Awesome" gameplay. This game has "Awesomer" gameplay. Seriously, there is a character named Awesomer in the game.

• Stage select screen that lets you decide in what order you want to play them.

• 8 bit style music and sound effects.

• An unapologetic sense of humor.

• Non-epic bosses. Just kidding. Wanted to make sure you were still paying attention. (The boss battles can be hard but are enjoyable and rewarding as well.)


Why Early Access?

I am a single developer looking to get feedback from players to improve the game. In addition, although I have play tested the game extensively, there might be bugs that I missed which can be fixed before the official release.

I plan to listen to players and make changes based on their feedback. If they have a good suggestion for an addition to the game, I will implement it if possible. If they find a certain part of the game too frustrating, I can lower the difficulty or remove that section. For players who really help in contributing to the success of the game, I will include them in the end credits.
