Good Shepherd Entertainment has revealed it will launch indie developer ThirtyThree’s hyperkinetic side-scrolling action platformer ATOMIK: RunGunJumpGun for Nintendo Switch™ on February 8th, 2018. The game will be available to download via the Nintendo eShop for $7.99.
ATOMIK: RunGunJumpGun’s 2D retro automatic runner gameplay revolves around one very big gravity-defying gun with two-button controls: one to fly up and the other to blast forward through obstacles and death traps at breakneck speed. There are over 120 levels of meticulous mayhem to master, with unique challenges that demand quick thinking and reflexes to survive.
Set in a warped space-opera universe, ATOMIK: RunGunJumpGun’s pulp sci-fi storyline is full of bizarre characters and moments. The game bursts off the screen with colorful, neon-infused visuals and a pulse-pounding synth soundtrack. The Switch version will also feature the new Shield Mode which empowers players with an energy shield and decreases the movement speed to help make the intense action more manageable, but no less heart pounding and exciting.
Indie games have had a great success rate on the Nintendo Switch, including some doing better than both console and PC versions. In some cases, they did better on Switch than all other systems combined. We’ll have to see if ATOMIK: RunGunJumpGun does that well.
