Two-man indie developer Dahku Creations released precision platformer Chubbins to iOS devices last year. Unfortunately, the game's high level of difficulty turned off a lot of users in that particular market. After working out some of the early details, Dahku is finally able to bring the game to a place where it will evidently feel much more at home: the Wii U eShop.
Chubbins is an intense platforming adventure with simple mechanics--all players must do to control the titular pudgy bunny through 40 levels is move him left and right. Of course, there's also a catch: Chubbins never stops bouncing, so focus and fast fingers will be mandatory assets on your journey past the myriad obstacles and enemies.
The Wii U version will be getting some goodies not found in the iOS iterations. First and foremost, the addition of an entirely new mode — Time Attack — will allow players to return to previous levels and aim for a record time, for both normal and boss stages. Secondly, the game's "Casual" and "Classic" difficulty levels have been renamed "Soft" and "Hard," respectively, with the former mode also receiving a few handy tutorials to help newbies on their way. In addition, numerous other bits will be fixed and tidied up, making Wii U the definitive place to experience Chubbins' quest.
Dahku is still hard at work bringing this indie experience to Nintendo's platform and are consequently unable to nail down specific release details. Tentatively, the developers are aiming for a May debut, so be on the lookout for details in the next few months.
Is a challenging precision platformer like Chubbins your kind of game? Will you be jumping on board when the plump little rabbit makes his final hop to the Wii U eShop?
