Ratalaika Games has confirmed that its upcoming puzzle-platformer Peasant Knight will be frantically dashing and jumping towards a Switch near you later this week.

Coming from the team at 4AM Games, this one is actually described as a puzzle-platformer "with a twist". You'll be relentlessly dashing into the face of danger, stopping just pixels away from erupting flame pits and the like; the tricky part is that you can only move forwards or stop, and an ever-present time limit will make you want to go even faster.

The puzzle element comes from the traps themselves; each level has you navigating your way through increasingly complex combinations and, as the trailer above demonstrates, we imagine you'll be dying a lot. Here's a quick list of game features:

  • 80 levels to solve.
  • 18 different kinds of traps, bosses and enemies to overcome.
  • Local multiplayer that supports up to 4 players.
  • Co-op play and race modes.

The game launches on Switch on 22nd March and will be available for $2.99 / €2.99.
