Don't Touch Anything Red announced for Wii U eShop

Posted by Alex Phillimore

Play the demo in your browser today

Indie developer Helix Games will be bringing its challenging upcoming title Don't Touch Anything Red to the Wii U eShop in the not-too-distant future.

The game features off TV play, versus and co-op modes, two single player modes and five-player multiplayer only possible on the Wii U by use of the GamePad. While seemingly simplistic in appearance, the game is more complex than it may look at a glance; with multiple ways of playing, including with the Wii U GamePad, the Pro Controller and the Wii Remote, there's bound to be a form of control to suit all players.

The game also features music from chiptune artist Kubbi, which matches its old-school aesthetic, and is planned for a budget-priced release in July.

You can try the demo in your browser and watch the trailer below — is this on your radar?

Thank goodness it said the footage was of the dev build. After watching the trailer I don't think I could look at that for very long; it seemed too jittery.

Good lord, I hope that demo is not representative of the finished project.

I cannot understand the bad comments. The graphics are simple, but the demo is addictive and it costs less than a Big Mac.

So far my high score in Gravity mode is 634 points.
And for Arcade 419
I'm confused by the backround in the demo. It looks like Nintendo Life, only in a glitched up form. I don't understand why and I'm not sure if I'm the only one experiencing it.

Don't bother buying this if you have Warioware inc.There's a similar minigame called Skating Board.

@Maelstrom Is this an accusation? Everybody has to write his first comment somewhen. Just take a look at wiiudaily.com, where the developer of the game is commenting under his company name. Wouldn't make much sense to create a fake account for nintendolife.com, don't you think?

So in other words this is the opposite of Mirror's Edge?

Jk, looks alright but I personally don't care for score attack games.

Just played the demo and got like 216 points after like 7 tries lol. Also this game so looks a simple flash game which it probably is. Might buy the game if it's like 99 cents.

I don't know, maybe I'll give it a whirl. Atari 2600 I don't really remember it too young too. I think I can appreciate the simplicity of this game.

There's something wrong with the scrolling.

Personally I would have preferred something like the Scratch language for the Wii U.

I just have very little interest in all these runner games. I dug bit.trip, but all these others in the same style really aren't adding anything, so far as I can tell.

I hope by "budget-priced" this means they'll actually be paying me to play this trash.

It plays like something that they knocked up in 30 minutes using Game Maker.

Seems okay but would be better if they made got some sprites in there to make it look better. A little bit of time spent on presentation would no doubt move alot more copies.

And no doubt some color-blind gamer is going to buy this, and become eternally frustrated at their lack of progress :/

Just played the demo,brutal! This would have reviewed badly back in 1982 and if it gets any more than a 2 or 3 here I'll be shocked.

I'd rather play Pele Soccer 2600 ;)

WTF!
It's a TOUCH based game and I can only play it on my PC (without touchscreen) with mouse buttons?
Doesn't work on the iPad, doesn't work on the Wii U!
Why release a demo that doesn't work on the platform it is going to be released on?

I'm okay with minimalist graphics- I thought Edge was a pretty cool game. Blockdrop was worth $2 I suppose. I might have to draw the line here and pass.

Played demo for 3 minutes. Exited demo. I now have no need to pay any money for this "game" as I have experienced literally everything I want to (and more) out of it.

Mindless cell phone games like this are terrible, and Nintendo has no need of such garbage on their system.
