With an average of 40+ new games a week on the Switch eShop, simply working through the list to find potential good 'uns can be a lengthy undertaking. One that caught our attention in its launch trailer, though, is Dojoran - it arrives on 17th September priced at $4.99USD / 4,99€.
It's the work of Brazilian developer Nautland, with publishing from the ever-prolific Ratalaika Games. As you can see it's a retro-inspired black and white platformer, in a rather fun way describing itself as having 1-bit graphics. It's highly stylised, looks like a good challenge for platforming ninjas and seems like the sort of title that could easily appear in indie 'showcases' and not look out of place.
Life is not as easy and simple as it seemed in your childhood. To survive in a world full of dangers, you must go through the difficult ninja training of frogs using secret techniques created by your ancestors.
Dojoran is a precision platform game in which you need to use apples to perform a double jump in different ways than usual. The simple and responsive controls provide a great experience in challenges that need to be faced more than once. Each death is an apprenticeship to improve reflexes and control the character, rather than an entire frustration.
Gameplay inspired by games like Super Mario World, Celeste and Bloody Trapland. Art style inspired by Gameboy Pocket games, Gato Roboto and Downwell.
