Indie Pinoy Game ‘Kill the Plumber’ Bags Awards, Now Out on Steam


Known for being the parody of the classic game “Super Mario Brothers,” “Kill the Plumber” is a Pinoy-made game by indie developer Tekitown. Despite being rejected by Apple last year, the game went on to bag awards both locally and internationally.

Additionally, it is now available to play on Steam.

The story of the game is about this one peaceful day in the kingdom, when all of a sudden a Mexican plumber decided to rampage and cause destruction.  No matter what the critters threw at him, he kept coming back, and even tries to kidnap their princess.

Your goal is to prevent the plumber from succeeding in destroying the kingdom and taking the princess.

How to Play the Game

“Kill the Plumber” is a parody to other platformers.

Your goal is to stop the ‘protagonist’ from winning each level by killing him. You start off as a slow minion who can’t even jump, but has enough power to kill the hero. As you get the hang of it, you start playing as other enemies that can jump, shoot, stomp and even fly, sometimes controlling more than one character at a time! You can even play as the bosses!
