Today, we're launching Gimmick! Special Edition! It's available digitally on Steam, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox, reviving a hidden, old-school action-platforming masterpiece for modern gamers!
As the cuddly hero Yumetaro, you'll get to explore a physics-based platforming playground and use your star-shooting powers to solve tricky challenges with finesse! With the help of your fantastic star, you'll reach hidden spots, make frenemies, traverse cliffs, and pull off trick shots that'll surprise even the toughest baddies!
The original game was exclusive to Famicom™/NES™ in Japan and Scandinavia in the early '90s and is considered a hidden gem among retro enthusiasts. This Special Edition is updated with online leaderboards, achievements, time attack mode, save and quick load, rewind function, and a lovely gallery featuring cartridges, art, and scanned manuals.
We hope the new quality-of-life updates will make it accessible regardless of your age and experience. This game is a fun addition to your library if you're looking for crisp pixels, a bopping soundtrack, and stellar platforming that's way ahead of its time.
If you're up for a real challenge, head into "Serious Mode" to disable all quality-of-life features, and be sure to uncover all secret items if you're a completionist. There's a surprise in store if you do!
Happy gaming from all of us at Bitwave!
