Sidescrolling platformer ElecHead Switch port announced

ElecHead Switch port

Japanese developer NamaTakahashi announced an ElecHead Switch port set to release this summer.

While the ElecHead Switch port is coming this summer (via the eShop), the sidescrolling platformer game was originally released for Windows PC (via Steam and itch.io) back in October 2021.

Here’s the reveal trailer:

Here’s a rundown on the game:

In a world enshrouded by darkness, deep inside a factory, the light of hope still shines.

ElecHead has you play as Elec, a small robot on a mission to bring light back to the world.

When Elec touches walls, floors, platforms, switches, and more, he makes electricity run through them, activating them.

He can also detach and throw his head to trigger things remotely, but be careful: if he doesn’t get his head back within ten seconds, he will shut down. Elec will have to use his head, literally and figuratively, to find a way out of this trap-ridden facility.

Key features:

  • Simple and intuitive controls
  • There’s a limited amount of gimmicks, but it’s up to the player to find the different ways to use them to solve puzzles in the different levels
  • Minimalist graphics with a retro-feel that lets the player focus on the game mechanics
  • Playtime: 2-3 hours, even busy people can play (Hidden rooms or secrets to discover)
  • No in-game text or tutorial: can be played by anyone around the globe, intuitive gameplay
