Kana 2 (Pekka the Rooster 2) is a jump 'n run game made in the spirit
of old classic platformers such as Super Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog,
Jazz Jackrabbit, Super Frog and so on.
The simple goal in each level is to find the exit sign, which is
usually not that simple as it sounds because of
enemies, traps, and quirky puzzles.
Pekka Kana 2 was released in year 2003 at Assembly '03 Game Development
Competition, and placed 2nd. Since then the game has been featured in
numerous different sites and cover discs. Players
have also made their own levels with the PK2 Level Editor, which was
released later in 2003. Check the link section at the bottom of the
page for more information.
Pekka Kana 2 has also been translated to several languages, and you can
download the language files and manuals from the bottom of this page.
The installer includes episodes Rooster Island 1
and Rooster Island 2, and a huge amount of translations. So
game first, and download a translation if it doesn't come with the game.
Unfortunately because the game is quite old and uses old version of
DirectX (7), many experience problems when trying to run the game on
modern OSs like Windows Vista and graphics cards that don't support all
of Direct 7's old 2D features. Recommended setup for PK2 is Windows 98
an old graphics card.
