has released the first video and screenshots
from 1001 Spikes
, a 2D platformer coming to PlayStation Vita later this year. The goal in 1001 Spikes is to find the key to open the door to the next level. Each level will present a different challenge both in the procurement of the key and then making it to the door alive. Although some levels look impossible at first, the determined gamer will prevail.
The main character, Aban Hawkins, wields unlimited throwing daggers to fight off anything he may encounter in the deadly ruins. Like classic 2D platformers, 1001 Spikes' controls are simple: throw daggers, short jump, and high jump. There are very specific times when the high jump may or may not have the advantage, leaving you with using the short jump to progress through the level. In fact, there are areas where you'll have to use one jump versus the other to advance.
1001 Spikes features six worlds with multiple levels each, plus some unlockable guest characters and authentic 8-bit style cutscenes.
