As the old saying goes: the road to hell is paved with robots and spikes and stuff. And, to Boomerang Betty, that sounds like her kind of fun! Armed with her ancient magic boomerang, she's off to adventure. Guide her through 8 intense platforming levels, filled with traps, pits, and all kinds of hazards.

Boomerang Betty is side-scrolling platformer, where you jump, run, and throw a boomerang with teleportation powers.


Use the LEFT/RIGHT arrow keys run. Press X to throw your boomerang in the direction you are facing, or hold the UP or DOWN arrow keys to throw the boomerang up or down. Press Z to jump.

Throw the boomerang at enemies to destroy them.
Not all enemies are destructable at all times and
some not at all.

After having thrown the boomerang, press throw
again to teleport Betty to the boomerang's
location. Betty must then hold the boomerang while
touching the ground to regain her teleportation power.

Jump at a wall, then press jump again to make
Betty perform a wall jump.

Combine different actions to perform various
advanced moves.

Is Boomerang Betty a turtle, @slumma ?

@dw817 haha no it's supposed to be a mullet, but I can see how it kinda looks like a shell

Yay Game Boy styled graphics

Also, with a difficulty scale of 1 to 5, this is a stupidly high twenty nine

I really like the mechanic! I wonder if it would be easier if you launch the boomerang by holding X then teleport on release? Could allow for more precise timing.
Also if gravity didn't affect you after shooting the boomerang you'd have a bit more time to think/not die.

@geojax those are both great ideas!
I think holding X is much more readable too. I'll have to try it.
I had thought about the gravity not affecting you while shooting but I don't remember why I didn't do it. Probably was just desperate to get this finished.
I appreciate the input! Thanks!

i like the concept, and graphics are neat, but actually the wall jump is a bit frustrating

P#127203 2023-03-16 02:38

Fun, but so hard!

P#127522 2023-03-23 19:37

Beat it for the first time!
(228 deaths, whew)

@CrownDeluxe heck yeah! Well done! I'm honored you liked it enough to muster through to the end

This game is frustrating, but still fun. I've put up a speedrun leaderboard in case anyone else is interested in some speedy boomerang action:
