SPECTACULAR SPARKY Blasts Onto Nintendo Switch!

SANTA ANA, California, October 20, 2021 — Nicalis, Inc. today announced that Spectacular Sparky, a retro-inspired platformer/shooter game from developer FreakZone Games, is now available on Nintendo Switch, Steam and the Epic Games Store.

Like all the best white-gloved 1990s video-game heroes, Sparky is colorful, cheeky and adventurous, maybe even a little bit insane. A space-rabbit of unknown origin, he works as an intergalactic bounty hunter, tracking down cosmic criminals for fame and fortune. Sparky can dash through obstacles, shoot projectiles in any direction and even extend his jumps by flapping his long ears.

Spectacular Sparky offers 24 challenging levels across five different worlds, and each level ends with a bombastic boss battle.  Sparky gets to use powerful weapons like blasters, flamethrowers and homing missiles, and he occasionally rides on a variety of unique vehicles like a spaceship, a hang glider and a lava jet ski. It’s a loving, accurate homage to classic action games on 16-bit consoles, with just a few modern concessions like a widescreen aspect ratio and lots of hilarious voice-acted dialogue.

Spectacular Sparky is now available digitally on Nintendo Switch, Steam and the Epic Games Store for $14.99.

JARS is now available on Nintendo Switch!

Hamburg, Germany, October 20th, 2021 – Mousetrap Games and Daedalic Entertainment invite you into the dusty basement of JARS, a strategic mix of tower defense and puzzle game with a distinct gothic flair.

JARS tells the story of young Victor, who is asked to get a jar of pickles from the cellar for his mother. After he discovers a mysterious sarcophagus, crawly creatures emerge from the other jars in the basement, and our protagonist has to fight them in order to protect his ominous find. In the strategic tower defense game, Victor makes use of minions and items to break all jars and defeat their inhabitants.

Finding the perfect approach by choosing the right minions at the right time, and combining them with items and other upgrades, is essential to ensuring Victor’s victory. He also has to find out why some pages are missing in a mysterious book, why Dracula hides in his basement, and if he can save the world – before he gets grounded by his mother.

Features:

  • A strategy game featuring puzzles and elements of tower defense: Break all the jars and protect the Sarcophagus – that’s your main goal!
  • A distinct art style inspired by spooky and funny classics: Hand-drawn mouldy horror with a dose of humour
  • Randomization and adaption: You can never be certain what is inside a jar, therefore you have to adapt to new mechanics and situations.
