Spheroids is a 2D side scroller that the Spanish developers say “Mixes mechanics from classic platformers such as Super Mario Bros or Umihara Kawase with ‘combat’ sections inspired in Pang! (or Buster Brothers), within a comical science-fiction setting inspired by films and series such as Futurama, Rick & Morty, Ghostbusters, Back to the Future or Spaceballs.”
In Spheroids you take control of Lucas, a jumpy Canadian boy who sets out on an adventure with his crazy scientist companion Otto after it’s discovered that the government has been hiding alternative universes from the cubic world they live in. Unfortunately, these alternative universes contain spheres that wish to turn everything round, so it’s up to Lucas to save the world from these dangerous aliens: the Spheroids!
The Story mode comprises of 32 levels in 8 different locations, and comes with some pretty cool pixel art. Check it out below.
Spheroids has a planned release date of January the 10th on PS4 and PS Vita (cross-buy). The game looks set to release also on January the 5th on Wii U, Xbox One and Win10. Eclipse Games are also planning a 3DS release at some point later in the year and Spheroids is currently on Steam greenlight.
