If you're a fan of '90s-inspired 3D platform games, you might want to check out the recently released Toree 2. It arrived around the same time as the Switch OLED and Metroid Dread and costs just $0.99/£0.89 (or your regional equivalent).
If you already own it, the good news is it'll be getting a free content update at some point later this year. Here's the full message about this from the game's creator:
Here's what the base game currently includes (via the Switch eShop):
- More late 90s low poly aesthetic
- Fast gameplay, flow focused levels
- Weird elements make a comeback.
- 9 levels with unique elements
- Some secret characters to unlock
- The epic conclusion of the ice cream arc
And here's a look at the original game as well, if you haven't seen it before:
Have you tried out Toree 3D or Toree 2? Looking forward to the free content update? Leave a comment down below.
Ah right I was gonna buy this one. BRB.
It's a fun but extremely short game. If it gets something new I'll definitely go back to it.
This game is what Sonic should have been on Saturn if Sega didn't f*** up bad
Hell yeah! I love this game so much!
So worth the price of admission
awesome, still need to play it tbh it's been sat on my switch for a while
@F_Destroyer I thought the same thing when playing this!
Here for this! The Toree games have been some of my surprise favourites over the last year or so.
This series goes harder than it needs to lol! I would happily pay for DLC, or another game entirely. If they were going to change Toree 2 in any capacity, I'd say my only gripe with it has been the super secret unlockable character being too big, while having the same hitbox as the other characters. I don't think anyone's complaining about the amount of content in a 99¢ game, least of all when dozens of shovelware games that cost just as much barely have any substance.
I'm glad this article re-reminded me of these games. I had a couple of bucks left in my eshop account, so I grabbed both games. I've made my way through most of Toree 3D and the platforming is spot on (and there's still room for speedrunning the game and getting better rankings). I haven't minded the short runtime, as the game has felt like a real step back into those ps1/n64 platformer days. I'm looking forward to playing the sequel, but I'm gonna have it finished long before that update comes out. Haha.
Loved this game and the first one, especially at that price. Really slick and focused on doing one thing well. And after the garish pinks of the first level of Toree 1, the colour work in Toree 2 really pops and looks beautiful in the moment.
With half of Toree 2's 8 levels duplicating the same theme as the other half, I'm certainly happy to see some more content roll in. But like the previous comment said, I'd be happy to throw an extra dollar their way for the service.
Eh, I had a bit of fun with Toree 2 myself. Can't for the freebies.
Seems expensive, I'll wait for a sale.
