Publisher Blowfish Studios and developer Daniel A. Ramirez today announced that the retro platformer Whipseey and the Lost Atlas is coming to Nintendo Switch in Q3 2019.
About the game
After discovering a magical book, a young boy named Drew is whisked away to Whipseeyland, where he transforms into Whipseey, the pink, whip-wielding hero of this bright, colorful world. With the help of Princess Alyssa, Whipseey embarks on a quest to recover magical orbs that possess the power to return him home.
Whip or jump on enemies standing in the way and collect the magic gems they leave behind. Find an impassable chasm? Hold down the jump button and use the whip as a helicopter to travel further. Use swing points to fling Whipseey from one far-flung location to another and bounce off enemies to reach impossible heights.
Inspired by classic 2D platformers, Whipseey and the Lost Atlass is a challenging throwback to a golden age filled with picturesque levels, a relaxing soundtrack, memorable boss fights, and vivid pixel art courtesy of Super Crate Box and Luftrausers artist Roy Nathan De Groot.
