Gamasutra – Press Releases – Aloof, the cutest puzzle-fighter of all time, is coming to Switch later this year thanks to RedDeer.games
[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource Games Press.]
Aloof is a cute puzzle-battler game with adorable animals in which you defend your little islands.
The game is perfect for classic Tetris lovers and fans of Puyo Puyo Tetris or Super Puzzle Fighter Turbo II.
This unique and challenging game, created by ButtonX, will arrive on Nintendo Switch later this year, thanks to global publisher RedDeer.games.
Embark on a wonderful adventure in the colorful world of Aloof, where challenging levels with multiple victory conditions await.
Play as a cute brave bunny and face the opponent to protect your small islands.
Enjoy beautiful and peaceful piano music while fighting your enemy. Play solo or with your friends in local co-op.
BEAT YOUR OPPONENTS
Summon small islands and defend them against your opponent. Move the pieces left, right, down and up. Keep in mind that the pieces do not come down on their own, so take the time to think and act fast to successfully repel an opponent’s attack!
BUILD AMAZING COMBOS
If you are not happy with the parts in your field, you can simply rinse them by holding the flush button down.
You can switch between 2 fields so you don’t have to mess up your amazing combo if something else needs to be done first.
COOP SOLO OR COUCH CAMPAIGN
Experience a challenging adventure in the unique world of Aloof solo or with your friends and family in local co-op!
Compete against your loved ones in 1v1 or 2v2 matches in the cooperative campaign with puzzle levels, AI matches, rescue missions and bosses!
Aloof Trailer is now available on YouTube:
- Cute and competitive puzzle fighter – a challenging puzzle game like Puyo Puyo Tetris, but played completely differently: summon and defend small islands while building combos against your opponent.
- 23 challenging levels with multiple victory conditions – destroy your opponent’s islands, seize all the islands or take a risk and defeat your opponent before they take over a single island!
- Lovely animals – you play as a cute and brave little bunny who fights opponents from the animal world.
- Single player and co-op couch campaign – experience a challenging adventure on your own or compete against your friends in local co-op
