A crazy new platformer that features five distinct worlds, music from the composer of Earthworm Jim, and world-rotating high jinks.
Majesco recently announcedFlip's Twisted World, a new platformer developed by Canada's Frozen North Productions. In the game, players will need to rotate the game environment in order to solve puzzles and open up new pathways.
The game stars Flip, a wizard's apprentice who mistakenly transports himself to a strange cubed world. Players will traverse through five unique puzzle lands littered with castles and lava as they try to keep the universe from imploding. A single twist of the Wii Remote will rotate an entire environment by 90 degrees, making previously insurmountable areas easily accessible.
Over the course of the adventure, Flip will discover five magical tools to aid him as well as encounter a variety of other characters that may bear gifts or lead him astray. Alongside the main game, there will also be side quests filled with unlockable treats.
Majesco Vice President Gui Karyo enthusiastically states that "Flip's Twisted World offers a truly innovative take on the traditional platform game by sidestepping conventional design in favor of a three-dimensional, perspective-altering approach."
The game also features music from Tommy Tallarico, the well-known composer of games like MDK and Advent Rising and co-creator of Video Games Live.
Flip's Twisted World is scheduled to be released in January 2010 and will be at E3 next week. A trailer for the game is embedded below.
