Often described as a game that’s inspired by Stephen King’s The Dark Tower book, Alter World brings a 2D platformer experience to New 3DS systems. Unique gameplay mechanics allow you to travel to an alternative universe anytime you want as you traverse every level. Levels are filled with interesting puzzles that will require creative thinking, and you’ll need to quickly assess when you need to jump from world to world through different realities.

There’s currently no 3DS trailer offered online, but you can still get the gist of the style and gameplay by checking out the trailer from App Preview:


As you can see, Alter World presents its world in an inspired paint-like style with soft melodies that add a soft tone to the entire experience, which consists of 80 challenging levels, ten immersive worlds, and a handful of alternate endings.

If you’re looking for more info, head on over to Alter World at Nintendo. It’s available for a mere $1.99 in the eShop today — and keep in mind that it’s only offered for New 3DS systems.
