20 Games Like Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition()




The Sun and Moon, the winner of Ludum Dare 29, is a platformer with a unique mechanic: you can dive into the ground. Momentum is conserved but gravity is reversed, letting you fling yourself high into the air or deep beneath the surface. The goal is always straightforward - collect the three orbs in the level and jump into the wormhole - but spikes, endless drops and impossible heights make this more and more difficult.

You may think it's simple enough to run and jump your way through life. But there's more to this world... or, rather, these worlds. You're entering the duality of a distressed mind, controlling light and dark versions of the same environment. You hold the key to switching from one to the other. Every step forward shows a new obstacle, and a new way to alter it between dark and light. Become comfortable in both worlds and you may be able to make sense of the dreamy landscape around you. You may even find an explanation for why you're here.

Shin Samurai Jazz is a platform-adventure game. It combines the likes of film noir and samurai cinema, presenting them with 8-bit graphics, an electro-jazz soundtrack, and a comic/manga-like style creating a unique atmosphere.

Unlike it's predecessor, samurai_jazz, Shin Samurai Jazz features jumping mechanics inspired by chuunori, an old technique used in kabuki theatre to give the illusion of flying. It's combat mechanics consist of hacking and slashing with the ability to juggle enemies and perform mid-air combinations, also inspired by chuunori. While the adventure elements remain intact, the puzzles are more complex with varied level designs and enemy placements/attack patterns that make use of the game's mechanics.
