Zengami, comprising of ex-Atari Melbourne House core team members, and DigiPen Game Studios (DGS) are proud to announce a new platform puzzle game, TurtlePop: Journey to Freedom. The Nintendo Switch exclusive is expected to launch on the Nintendo eShop in March 2018.
TurtlePop: Journey to Freedom is a cross-genre platform puzzle game that introduces Bebo, Deephi, Slimmie, Smarts, Willis and Sparky the Turtle. They are aided by ‘The Genie’, an airborne support turtle that players can use to manipulate the game world and enhance the abilities of the turtles!
The game’s Campaign mode challenges players to free the turtles from a menagerie of over 100 stages across seven game worlds in single player or two player co-op modes. Robust game mechanics seamlessly blend platform and puzzle gameplay with features including multi character control and turtle-linking, environment manipulation via block swapping, item deployment and match 3 mechanics that make challenges even more fresh, intense and fun. Through the journey, players can collect Sun-Coins, Moon-Pearls and earn Treasure Chests to discover and level-up over 15 types of Building Cards, and more than 40 gameplay items to help lead the turtles to freedom.
Battle and play with friends in local Multiplayer with 1-4 players in versus or co-op formats. Arena Battle Crown Thief and Arena Battle Lick’em Up modes pit players against one another in a classic tournament format where the aim is to wear the crown the longest or lick, colour and free the most turtles to achieve victory. In Turtle Clash mode, players battle in split screen on over 75 stages that can be unlocked in Campaign mode.
TurtlePop: Journey to Freedom is exclusive and optimised for Nintendo Switch running at native 1080p 60 when docked and native 720p 60 in Tabletop or Handheld modes.
