about the game

Featuring the cutest pair of robots this side of the Milky Way, Pitfall Planet’s action takes place on a distant, forgotten mining world.

Play as the two astrobots, who after being stranded and separated from their ship, must traverse the subterranean caves of the ruined planet, overcoming its many perils in the process.

In Pitfall Planet, you and your friend are equipped with the latest and greatest in astro-mining technology.

Players can use their grappling hooks to pick up objects (including each other!) and throw them over gaps or cliffs.

To collect all the ore in each level, you'll learn to master the art of teamwork!

With the help of your buddy, activate otherwise unreachable buttons and levers, navigate to higher areas using crates, hop across sections with bouncy pads and overcome rockets, tanks, and more!

As if hours of challenging puzzle-based gameplay is not enough, players can then spend their gems upgrading the two protagonists with a range of fancy headwear to make them the best-dressed robots on the planet, perhaps even the galaxy.

 

  • Play with a friend through a variety of levels with intriguing puzzles and dangerous enemies...

  • ...or adventure on your own controlling both astrobots for a real challenge!

  • Gorgeous graphics bring the astrobots and the vibrant planet to life.

  • Explore a mysterious overworld to discover caverns and secrets.

  • Find hidden gems in every level, which can be used to unlock fancy hats!

  • Mesmerizing instrumental ambient music

  • Throw your friends into pits of lava!

  • Do it again! Don't worry, they'll be just fine.

about the project

The first time we played Pitfall Planet on PC we fell in love with its gorgeous graphics, challenging gameplay and abundance of humor and charm and we felt it would have been a perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch and its couch-based co-op gameplay. Considering the potential of this project we have decided to push the boundaries of the port even further implementing some new features exclusive to the Nintendo Switch edition:

  • 3 Play Modes supported: TV, Tabletop and Handheld

  • Choose the control scheme that works best for you: play with any combination of Joy-Con, Joy-Con grip, Pro Controller

  • HD Rumble implementation

  • Localization of the game in 10 languages (English, Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mexican Spanish, Russian, Traditional Chinese)

  • New cutscenes created by the original artist of the game

The Abstraction touch has made this little gem shine even brighter!
