Nihilumbra studio Beautifun Games is back with its latest puzzle adventure; Professor Lupo and his Horrible Pets arrives on Switch next month.

The game sees players take on the role of a professor's personal intern, dealing with the ferocity of his collection of so-called horrible pets along the way. These pets are deceiving alien creatures who look adorable on the surface, but turn into hungry monsters when they sense their prey is near.

Described as a space puzzle adventure, the game contains 100 levels which deliver "clever puzzle gameplay mechanics, a heavy dose of humour in a suspenseful plot, and original art with traditional 2D animations".
