6180 the moon

The Wii U GamePad was a very promising piece of equipment back when the Wii U was announced, supposedly providing all sorts of new ways to play video games. Now that we're a number of years into the console's life, it seems that this has been delivered on somewhat, but developers have struggled to find unique and innovative uses for the bulky controller. There have certainly been some very interesting uses, but it seems that many developers are content to just use it as a screen mirror or a supplemental screen, such as an inventory or map.

Turtle Cream – a new studio based in South Korea – has decided to try bucking the trend by creating a game that uses both screens in a unique way. The game is called 6180 the moon; it's a platformer that'll see players take control of the moon on a journey to find the sun. It'll use both screens for the playing field, requiring players to look between the two as the moon bounces high and low. The game launches on 25th February, though it hasn't been specified whether this goes for Europe, North America, or both. Check out the trailer:
