Do you like puzzles? Do you like seeing your characters become part of that puzzle platformer? Of course, you do. Indie developer Rocket Pocket Games may have just what you’re waiting for then as their indie title Shiftlings Enhanced Edition prepares to head to the Nintendo Switch this February.
Shiftlings is a 3D puzzle platformer, one that tells the story of a pair space custodians who travel among the cosmos completing complex challenges as they do. These little cute creatures, however, have a unique disposition to them.
These two quirky little ones have a single air hose attached to them, allowing them to pass gas back and forth between their spaces suits within a moments notice. This feature allows one to shrink and one to grow as they complete each cleverly designed puzzle and ultimately reaching new terrains once they do.Thanks to the way the game is created, Shiftlings is a perfect and charming match for the Nintendo Switch, offering same couch multiplayer by taking full advantage of the Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Con’s through 55 levels of pure puzzle platforming fan. You can check out the features of the game below:
- Smooth 60 fps with high-quality animations and beautifully designed 3D environments
- Improved level design, player progression, and overall pacing.
Enhanced single player experience.
- Supports all of the Nintendo Switch’s special play modes and brings enhanced user experience options like character outlines, HD rumble, and helper icons.
- Redesigned Hola Cola Pickups.
- As with the original Shiftlings game, the space platform-puzzler features couch co-op as well as a single player mode. You can enjoy the conjoined physics-based platformer puzzles through 55 levels, spread across 5 stunning worlds.
“We are VERY excited to bring Shiftlings to the Nintendo Switch. It’s the perfect game for the console. It’s made specifically for couch co-op but it also has to offer challenges for the hardcore gamer who wants to tackle the game by her/his own” said Natascha Röösli, Assistant Producer, Rock Pocket Games.
Aaron Dintino, Lead Designer, Rock Pocket Games adds: “The on-demand co-op, colorful aesthetics, and accessible-yet-challenging gameplay makes this the perfect game for Nintendo’s newest console. In fact, I’d go as far as to say that Shiftlings was destined for the Nintendo Switch before the console was even announced.”
Shapelings is set to launch on the Nintendo Switch on Feb. 1, 2018. Th game will receive release specials when it goes on sale next month.
