Independent Toronto developer Frozen North Productions is celebrating the release of its first title for the Nintendo Wii. Flip’s Twisted World is an original IP in the form of a 3D puzzle-platformer that follows the adventures of young apprentice Flip, who, after messing with a forbidden magic book belonging to one Master Fulcrum, gets sucked into a crazy cubed universe where up and down are just a matter of perspective. He discovers that by turning a magic cube, he is able to flip the world on its side, opening up new paths and possibilities. Players must think “outside of the box” as they navigate the world that is literally in the palms of their hands.
Published by Majesco Entertainment, Flip’s Twisted World features an original score from video game legend, Tommy Tallarico and the voice talent of Anthony Stewart Head. Navigating Flip’s Twisted World is done with a simple flick of the wrist using the Wii Remote™. Players can rotate the environment 90 degrees in any direction, opening new paths and possibilities; an obstructing wall can turn into a path and a pit can turn into a corridor.
In their journey, players travel through six bizarre, puzzle worlds: a celestial backwater, a fractured castle, a dense jungle full of booby-trapped temples, a frozen arctic wasteland, a network of subterranean lava caves and an intricate clock tower in the sky. Along the way, Flip will encounter both friendly and menacing creatures as he collects magical items and powerful weapons like the Ice Spray, Zapper or Water Cannon. Players can also unlock goodies and alternate costumes and learn more about the secrets of the magic universe’s past by finding pieces of The Master’s lost journal.
Flip’s Twisted World for Wii is rated E and is now available for the suggested retail price of $29.99.
