Review Part Time UFO - A Game About Picking Things Up That You Won't Want To Put Down
Grab it right away
A lot of people may not realise this, but HAL Laboratory isn’t actually owned by Nintendo. It may have been responsible for the likes of the Kirby, Smash Bros and Mother series and its main office may even be located in Nintendo’s Tokyo building, but the developer remains independent and could make games for other platforms if...
About The Game
Stacked with new features
The charming stack ‘em up Part Time UFO claws its way onto Nintendo Switch, adding Joy-Con controls, two-player local play*, brand new challenges and console-exclusive modes.
Part time worker, full time UFO!
In Part Time UFO, fly Jobski the UFO around and complete odd jobs. Help out at a farm, support cheerleaders, cook up the ultimate dessert at a restaurant, build castles, and much more! Wherever Jobski goes, there are sure to be plenty of jobs waiting. At the centre of all this is Jobski's super special awesome claw. Use the claw crane to grab, move, and stack objects to complete jobs.
Two claws are better than one
Pass a Joy-Con to a friend and tackle tasks together in two-player mode. Combine claws and complete odd jobs with the power of teamwork!
Stacks more to do!
The Nintendo Switch version features two exclusive modes. How high can you go? Keep on stacking and aim for a high score in the brand new Tower of Infinity. Take on this challenge alone, or hand a Joy-Con controller to a friend for some competitive or co-op fun.
Job done? Think again! Completing all the part-time jobs unlocks Treasure Island, a puzzle-solver’s paradise that can also be explored in local co-op. Overcome ever more difficult challenges to progress from one room to the next in this mini adventure!
Go above and beyond the call of duty to earn medals and unlock more jobs. With the right mix of finesse and forward planning, Jobski will be a highly decorated UFO in no time!
Change your look with classy outfits
Earn coins by completing jobs and exchange them for costumes to change into. Wearing these can give Jobski a whole new look and new abilities. Whether you want to show your stripes with the Tiger Suit or zip around in Ninja Wear, there are lots of costumes to pick and choose from.
Lots of friends (and foes?)
From a tight-lipped ship captain, a clumsy museum curator, or a fishy professor, to even elephants, dogs, and hamsters, they'll all cheer on Jobski during jobs, let out a sigh when Jobski fails, and show all kinds of reactions. Some of them may also be disguised and hiding in wait...
Share your masterpiece
Job? What job? Sometimes a UFO's just gotta stack to its unidentified flying heart's content. Create fun or artistic shapes and share the results with your friends.
Depending on the price, might look into it.
