Kiss Publishing and Pixel Reign have announced that Robbie Swifthand and the Orb of Mysteries will release on Nintendo Switch next month.
Robbie Swifthand has been sent to save humanity, but, not your usual hero, is driven by his search for treasure. When a spirit summons him to a temple to recover the three parts to the Orb of Mystery, he sees this as a chance to the treasure that is hidden within.
Not everything is as it seems in this hardcore 2D action-puzzle platformer, which challenges you to find the orb in each psychologically maddening level and throw it into the yellow vortex.
The levels have been designed to deceive, outsmart, surprise or confuse the player, requiring that you evade traps such as falling platforms, swinging axes, electricity balls, flamethrowers, and many more fatal obstacles.
“Robbie Swifthand was born out of our love for high difficulty 2D platformers and our slightly sick sense of humor,” explains Pixel Reign’s Angelos Gkamiliaris.
“The levels have obstacles with minds of their own where everything is designed to kill you. Or at least to inflict severe psychological pain that will drive even the most hardcore platformer enthusiast to madness.”
Kiss Publishing CEO Darryl Still adds: “We are delighted to release our first Nintendo Switch title and are very proud that it has been received so well. Working with Angelos and his team has been a pleasure and they have produced a crackerjack of a game.”
Robbie Swifthand and the Orb of Mysteries will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on August 1st.
