Publishing label UNTIES and indie developer Cat Nigiri have announced that Necrosphere Deluxe will soon be bringing platforming joy and inescapable anger to Nintendo Switch in equal measure.
The game is described as a "retro adventure-platformer" in which players must jump and float their way across lanes of fire and over deadly spikes, bounding themselves upwards with bouncy bubbles and jetpacks. As complex as this all sounds, the entire game only ever has you using two buttons, but we still get the feeling you'll be dying more than succeeding as you make your way through this one.
This Deluxe version of the game actually kicks things up a notch, too, with a whole new bonus chapter called 'Terry's Dream' being included. In this added level, progress is never saved, so you'll have to make it through its daunting platforming challenges without touching any of the many obstacles in your way. Good luck with that.
- Innovative controls: Only two buttons!
- At least 2.5 hours of tough, NO FILLER gameplay!
- One big, maze-like universe!
- Deliciously frustrating!
- Spandex ballet suit!
Necrosphere Deluxe is scheduled to launch on Nintendo Switch on 31st January for $7.99 / £6.49.
