2D Retro-Inspired Avenger Bird Flies Its Way to Nintendo Switch

Ultimate Games S.A. and Tiliasoft have announced that Avenger Bird will be coming to Nintendo Switch this month.

The retro-inspired platformer was initially released on Steam last year, but now the independent Polish studio plans to bring the title to the Nintendo eShop on February 5.

Taking control of a bird, players are tasked with saving other kidnapped birds.

According to Tiliasoft, the 2D adventure title has 32 different levels spread across four worlds. For players, it could take them up to three to five hours to finish one of the worlds.

“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,” says developer Patryk Zieliński.

“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.

“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.”
