Original Article (Mon 6th Jul, 2020 10:30 BST): Neko Ghost, Jump! is a brand new platformer hoping to launch on Nintendo Switch and other platforms, with funds currently being generated on Kickstarter to do just that.
The game features a neat perspective-switching mechanic which sees you shift the action from 2D to 3D, just like the dimension-flipping gameplay found in Super Paper Mario - a game that Neko Ghost, Jump! just so happens to have been inspired by. The shift allows you to solve puzzles, successfully fight against enemies and clear levels faster. Check out this official description:
Neko Ghost, Jump! is a pawsome puzzle-platformer that tasks players with switching between 2D and 3D camera perspectives as they guide Nekoman on an epic quest to rescue his bride-to-be, friends, and family from the evil Space Dog Pirate Boss and his minions. This adventure will take Nekoman across several biomes ranging from grassy plains to snowy tundras, to sweltering deserts and beyond.
Along the way, players will have to not only switch between 2D and 3D planes but also between their physical and ghost forms to defeat any baddies along the way as they pounce across a series of entertaining yet challenging obstacles that will test their spatial awareness to the limits!
Here's that 2D to 3D shift in action:
