ABOUT THE GAME

You, a robot named Elvis, are living in a racist world that’s ever suspicious of appearances. Equipped with your Shifty Suit, you’re able to change your looks in seconds and take advantage of the environment’s reaction. If you don’t adapt, platforms refuse to work, save points don’t save, and jump pads become deadly traps.

Discover rusty suburbs, perishing cities, massive factories and mysterious machines. Experience the escalating conflict between two peoples, while running up walls, jumping across chasms and flying through streams of lava. Expect to be dazzled by an ever-changing environment with fresh mechanics. Play a lovingly crafted platformer adventure from the creators of Tiny & Big!

You can softlock on the last boss if you somehow end up with less than 3 heart boxes to destroy on the final phase. Had to look up a lets play to see that the boss should have died when all the boxes were destroyed. Otherwise, excellent.

That's too bad, we never caught that apparently. I'll look into it. Thanks for the report, and glad you liked the game :)

This also happened to me.

Jump & Run with a very interesting setting. You are a robot that lost its home due to an unfortunate incident and are on the way to request a replacement for your home with the respective agency. As you can freely stick to any surface, the level design offers unique platforming possibilities. The game has a distinct art style and seems simple enough at first, but quickly adds a new mechanic to change between two modes to avoid respective damage types. Those mechanics arent new, but the game iterates smartly on them. 3,5/5
