If you’re looking for a cheap and straight-forward puzzle-platforming experience, you’re in luck today, as 0 Degrees from eastasiasoft is out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
0 Degrees features most of what you’d expect from a puzzle-platformer, and though it doesn’t aim to reinvent the genre, it seems to have the fundamentals figured out. Players navigate from one side of the screen to another in an icy wonderland on a journey to, well, reach the other side. A total of 40 levels of dark caves, perilous mountains, and icefields provide plenty of pitfalls and hazards to endure throughout the adventure.
Escalating difficulty ensures a low skill floor and a higher skill ceiling as players discover warp points, find unique crystals, and stack and throw boxes to navigate the terrain and solve puzzles. Luckily, dying won’t set you back too far, starting you right back at the beginning of the level to give it another go on the quest for time scores. It’s a simple game, but its charming pixel-art visuals and clever puzzles should keep genre fans happy for an afternoon or so.
0 Degrees is out right now for only $4.99.
