Command electromagnetic forces as you puzzle your way through an ancient conspiracy in the steampunk-powered platformer, Teslagrad for Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch.

With no single word of text or dialogue throughout the entire game, Teslagrad keeps its cards very close to its chest: opening in a rain-soaked city, you are a small, nameless boy – a ‘Teslamancer’ – who can manipulate the twin forces of electricity and magnetism. As the last of your kind, explore the mysterious metropolis and, eventually, the Tesla Tower, to discover a terrible truth about a tyrannical king who once ruled the nation.

As you venture through this archaic, European-inspired world, dodging and drubbing its dangerous denizens, be prepared to flex your mental muscles – solve devious puzzles by using your powers to manipulate the environment, including switching the negative or positive charge of blocks and platforms to open up pathways, and reach new areas.

Opposite polarity makes the targets attract, whereas similar polarity makes them repel. Give yourself a specific polarity to ride charged energy tubes, floating side-to-side, or circumventing crackling, electrical barriers designed to zap you! Polarise nearby critters, then send them off down small gullies and alcoves in order to affect otherwise-unreachable objects. By the time you reach the first of the hulking, industrial bosses, your electromagnetic prowess will be second nature!

Keep pressing on, and pick up new items for more powers, such as a short-distance teleport to span greater gaps, then hunt down enigmatic scrolls that may hold the key to future events. With later puzzles reaching fiendish levels of difficulty, you’ll need to employ trial-and-error to successfully traverse the tower, especially as traps and creatures will do away with you in a single hit! Razor-sharp ingenuity and flawless logic are your sword and shield in this deep, mysterious place.

With over a hundred levels of retro, 2D platforming set in a non-linear world, plus Machiavellian puzzles galore, your mental and physical reflexes will be tested to capacity in Teslagrad for Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch.

  • Explore a strange, industrial tower through classic, 2D platforming action
  • Use electromagnetic powers to move, float and teleport your way around enemies and obstacles
  • Bend your brain by solving puzzles that eventually reveal an ancient secret
  • Gorgeous, hand-drawn graphics depict a rain-swept vision of neo-Europe
