It’s a 2D platformer which comes with more than a hint of ‘Thomas Was Alone’ about it. But unlike that delightful little puzzler, Alteric also delivers a difficulty level akin to that of Dark Souls. Do you have what it takes to tackle the obstacles and bosses found within?

Available right now on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, Alteric asks you plenty of questions. Are you lonely? Or stuck? Where are you? Do you have any clue? These questions and a ton more will be running through your mind throughout your time with Alteric. Whether you actually find the answers to them by the end of it is anyone’s guess!

A single player 2D platformer, Alteric will have you trying to navigate your little white cube through a variety of stages, hopping past obstacles, tackling physics, worrying about gravity and taking on the most horrendous of bosses.

If you feel like that is for you, then you should be heading to the Microsoft Store (or eShop should you be more Switch focused) and grabbing Alteric for just £3.99. Should you wish to know more, then our full review will happily sort you out!
