Gave a quick runthrough a week or two ago.

Have a question. I'm subscribed to your Patreon but that was way after this game came out.

If I buy it now, can I get a Steam key too?

No, unfortunately we were not able to include Steam keys to the older games, because of a setting we did concerning the itch keys for the Patreon. We tried to rectify this with the itch.io team but they never managed to.

IWell I actually meant sending me a key through email or even twitter messaging.


I am working on a hif=gh end game can anyone make assets for my game! :)

I finally won this awesome game.

You should expand it further, it could easily be a full priced,
stand alone game. Just add a map and expand the world.
I love the idea of platforming plus shoot em up combined when
you get in the space ship and can shoot things.
After all the work put into this, to make it this short is kind tragic.
It really could be a full game. Everything about it is top notch!
I feel like I just completed WORLD 1 and the game is over. 8(

Ok, I need help xD How can I pass over the frog-bodyguard in the Frog Cave?

somewhere in frog cove someone will give you a hint about them!

How do I make my head pop off? I did it once by accident in the cave with the frog, but I haven't been able to repeat it. I'm playing on a laptop running Windows 10.

I figured out which character tells me (press down for awhile, if anyone else is wondering).


On Xbox controller it is B.

This game worth much more than $3. Every single detail feels like it's here for a good reason and the game is packed with love and care. I was especially amazed by the sound fx that give BoboRobot a perfect tone & mood.

Hi! I just stuck, headless, near to waterfall, cannot move. I will respawn, but made screenshot for you. Very cool game, thanks!

 Aaaannnndddd.. upsie. I'm in a even bigger problem. O gosh, a robot warns me to be careful with a wrench, haha


Hey, you aren't publishing  source code for this game?


Hi, the source code for 10$+ backers can be downloaded here: https://sokpop.itch.io/sokpop-source


Thx for answer, which engine are you using?


It's in game maker!

Yo this art style is awesome! So cool to combine pixelart spritesheet animation with tweens.

Love the aesthetics and the gameplay (although the divide mechanism only working on keyboard threw me for a moment).

That said, the ending felt awfully abrupt, I wonder if there's more than one ending

Came here to ask the same question. I don't get it. Maybe I got the bad one?

Best sokpop game yet!! Love the characters and gameplay, super fun. I also had the controller/wrench problem that billtg mentioned, and a clipping glitch in the red-metallic area I had when I went back to get the underwater bolts made me have to restart the game. Other than that all around great experience.


Thank you! Sorry that you got stuck, there is a respawn option in the menu that you can use when that happens, though.

Ah shoot I should've looked harder!

Tried to respawn but still left me without my body... :(

Hey, great job with this game. You did a great job coming up with a low-key metroidvania! Here are some minor bugs I noticed while playing:

Wrench doesn't work with controller (could be my controller)
Frog dialog was mixed around when giving him the 10 bolts
As the head you get soft-locked behind the water fall. I didn't realize you could respawn your body at first.

Great game though, with some good concepts. I'd love to see it expanded to a larger game!

You gotta drop the 't'! Just "Bobo Robo" is a GREAT name


Plus it would mean stupid theft in spanish.
