Avenger Bird will be released for Nintendo Switch – a platformer referencing to games from over two decades ago. As the creators illustrate, Avenger Bird is a retro style game that offers atypical control and completing it may turn out to be mighty challenging. Whilst the game has been made available on the Steam platform way earlier, the release of the Nintendo version was announced for February 5th 2019.
Made by TiliaSoft, Avenger Bird was introduced to the Steam (PC, Mac and Linux) in January 2017. This platformer, created by an indie studio from Poland, was released by Ultimate Games S.A. for Nintendo Switch.
The gameplay puts the player in the role of a birdie that sets off on a quest to save its snatched feathered youngsters. The game refers to the classic platformers, but features atypical control – you can fly, after all you’re playing as a bird, however the bird can fly for limited distances only.
These are the words of the developer Patryk Zielinski himself: “This game is a kind of tribute to shareware computer games on the market in the 1990s and is the spiritual successor to the classic games that were then available on the PC and Amiga. Players remembering times easily notice numerous references. Avenger Bird is however not only a retro style platformer, but obviously, the production also has its own unique character and features”
Avenger Bird is a game completely free of violence and it basically relies upon avoiding threat and danger. The game is consisted of 32 levels across 4 different worlds and it takes an average of four hours in order to complete it.
“Each level has its difficulty indicated so that the player knows the amount of challenge he can count on. The beginnings are not too difficult but the challenge is increased in subsequent stages. Often the key is to find the right method and not just our agility. Completing the game 100 percent, including the collection of hidden boxes with diamonds, is quite a demanding attempt. Starting each level we have to take into consideration – as in the old times – a limited number of lives” the developer added.
