After Pompom works up a sweat on his hamster wheel, Hoshi bursts into the room to show him a handful of beautiful jewels that fell from the sky. Shortly after, Captain Cat and his gang appear and kidnap Hoshi through a portal to space. Now, the galaxy’s bravest hamster must set on an adventure to save Hoshi from the eight Space Cat Pirates.
In this SNES-inspired puzzle-action platformer, you don’t directly control Pompom but must instead use your quick thinking to help him by placing and controlling the platforms, obstacles and items around him – whether that be building bridges, placing springs or pruning vines.
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features as below:
- Play a platformer in a new way: You’re not moving the character, but the platforms;
- Explore a beautiful world: A tribute to the SNES classics and the 16-bit retro era;
- Adventure across 8 worlds: Jump on flying fish, brave haunted mansions, swim past piranhas, battle flying saucers, and more;
- Use tons of items: Use collected items to interact with the world: fly out of cannons, swing on ropes, slash vines, splash honey, freeze time.
Pompom: The Great Space Rescue will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2022.
