Running as a direct sequel to the previously released Underland, Underland: The Climb looks to continue the old Game Boy vibes, as it launches on Xbox with a seriously cheap price point in tow.
Available to purchase and download right now from the Xbox Store, playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, Underland: The Climb sees the QUByte Interactive team behind it push forward with similar ideas to what previously popped up – expect puzzles, decent physics ideas and a fun concept, alongside a visual style that can only be described as ‘old-skool’.
Priced at a mere £3.29 (yeah, seriously cheap), Underland: The Climb will have you attempting to survive an alien attack, utilising a variety of tools and abilities as you dig and destroy your way through the stages in place.
With a terrain system that is just as destructive and deformative as in the original game, you’ll be tasked with drilling your way to victory, making the most of fluid mechanics and those good old laws of physics in order to solve the puzzles put in front of you. At least that’s the plan – we just hope the physics system works better than it did first time around.
We’ll find out when we run a full review of Underland: The Climb on Xbox, but for now you can grab a copy of the game for yourself by popping over to the Xbox Store.
Underland: The Climb is a platformer-puzzle game, a direct sequel to the previous title Underland, where the player helps Ivy to survive an extraterrestrial attack. On the journey the player must use different kinds of tools to be able to dig the ground, avoid acid, enemies and go through very strange places. Use the elements of the scenery, such as picks and many others to drill the soil to the indicated location. Destructive terrain, fluid mechanics and the laws of physics must be handled correctly to solve the puzzles.
