Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island aims to recapture classic platform action

Homage to 3D adventure classics releases this week

Hello PlayStation fans! This is George from Grip Digital, a company based in the beautiful city of Prague in Czech Republic. We’ve teamed up with Right Nice Games, a small but very talented development team from Stockholm, and have been working hard to bring you their debut title, Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island, a nostalgic revival of the legendary 3D platformer genre.

Today we feel very happy because Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is ready to be launched on Friday 19th May on Playstation Store!

Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is a vibrant 3D platformer, a homage to the beloved platformer genre of the previous decade, combining classic gameplay, playful gadgets, and a lighthearted story, set in a gorgeous world reminiscent of childhood adventures.

The game takes place in the exotic Clover Island, a place with lush greenery and colourful landscapes. Our main heroin, Skylar Lynxe, a snow cat with a mysterious robotic arm, and Plux Owlsley, the trusty sidekick, have to stop an evil industrialist who plans to conquer Clover Island.

Your mission is simple: you must fight your way across four different environments and a dozen levels, taking on boss battles, volcanoes and space, using a wide range of upgradable gadgets and weapons, and save the island from destruction!

TITLE

In Skylar & Plux, you have all the moves you’d expect from a standard platformer. You can jump, double-jump and do a spin-attack. As you progress through the stages, you will be able to unlock the jetpack which lets you jump further and higher, as well as many other gadgets. Aside from those pure platforming mechanics you will find puzzle elements as well that are more traditionally found in adventure games.

Skylar & Plux is a blend of all the classic 3D platformers of the late 90’s and early 2000’s. So there’s something for everyone, whether your favorite platformer was Mario, Jak & Daxter, Spyro or something else, you should be able to relate to Skylar & Plux!

But I will stop here so I don’t spoil all the fun for you. If you liked what you’ve seen so far, then just go and check out the game when it is available. We hope that you enjoy playing Skylar & Plux as much as we did making it. We’re looking forward to seeing what you think about the game.

Cool, it’s like Yooka-Laylee!

It’s not on the store. What’s going on?

For goodness’ sake. The headline says “out today on PS4” yet the game is not out ’til Friday. Does anybody actually read this stuff before you post it? Get it together, blog. You might have a “new look” but your content is as slapdash and unreliable as ever.

Is out now. £11.99 but PS Plus discounts down to £7.79. Think this may do for my hopefully relaxing weekend. :)
