You may not think it’s possible to have a platformer in which you can’t run, but Blitz Breaker has smashed onto Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch to prove otherwise.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S (fully optimised), PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch, Blitz Breaker isn’t a brick breaker clone like you may expect, but instead runs the lines of a super colourful puzzle-based platformer in which you take on the role of a little robot – Blitz.
The thing is, Blitz can’t run and instead utilises the power of the jump and mid-air dash to help himself get around. And when you’re stuck in the maniacal machinations of a deadly factory, you best be sure to get fully versed with those skills.
Priced at £4.19 and coming to console thanks to the creators at Boncho Games and the eastasiasoft team, Blitz Breaker sees you helping Blitz survive, with the perfection of those jumping and dashing skills highly prevalent. Do so and you’ll be well rewarded too as secrets are uncovered, portals are reached, stars are earnt and new heads will mean you can dress Blitz up however you like.
101 manic puzzles of pure mayhem await those looking to join Blitz with some breakingly good times and when you throw in 4 bosses to take down too, and a chiptune soundtrack which helps push it all along, eastasiasoft could well be on to a winner here.
Key features include:
- Navigate puzzling stages with just one button and directional inputs.
- Master tough-but-fair challenges across 101 unique levels.
- Take down 4 menacing bosses!
- Collect up to 20 heads to customize your character’s look.
