Grip Digital and Right Nice Games has released a new trailer for their upcoming 3D platformer Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island. Watch the new trailer above. The “Gadgets Trailer” showcases three items that you will be able to use in the game to manipulate the world around you as well as to traverse to new areas. The jetpack appears to be used to avoid treacherous low-lying areas, gives you the ability to reach higher sections and find secrets, as well as float smoothly between platforms. The time orb will be used to manipulate time so that you slow down quickly spinning platforms and fast moving/shooting enemies. The magnetic glove appears to be used to pick up large items that will unlock new areas, pick up larger weapons that can be used against enemies, as well as manipulating the metal objects in the environment to open up new routes of travel.
Lovers of 3D platformers will be excited to know they have quite a few choices in the genre over the next few months. Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is slated for release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in March 2017.
Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is a passionate revival of the legendary 3D platformer genre with classic gameplay, playful gadgets, and a lighthearted story set in a gorgeous, colorful world reminiscent of our childhood adventures.
You play as the brave Skylar, a young female space-feline caught in the middle of a robotic overlord’s exploitation of a peaceful world. This robotic menace, known as the CRT, kidnapped our heroine and wiped her memory in an attempt to reconstruct her into a super weapon. She wields a weaponized mechanical arm, packing an enormous amount of punching power. Breaking out from CRT’s space station with the help of a mysterious benefactor, Skylar crashes down on Clover Island and teams up with the equal parts goofy and witty owl Plux.
Traverse the tropical beaches, volcanic caverns, snowy mountain tops, and merciless desert of Clover Island. Fight an army of CRT’s minions, and find powerful upgrades expanding your abilities. Explore the island with the freedom-boosting Jet Pack and uncover its mysterious past with the puzzling Time Orb. Are CRT’s turret bots giving you trouble? Grab their missiles and send them back, turn their gatling fire against them and send his minions flying with the powerful Magnetic Glove! Free the imprisoned natives of Clover Island, and discover your destiny.
