I'v been told to inform you that Shift 2 is now out :D

Thanks for all the positive feedback from everyone, and a special thanks to everyone at Newgrounds for showcasing SHIFT.

Hi guys, here's a short game showcasing a concept the came to me a few weeks back. It's a puzzle platformer with a literal twist to the gameplay mechanics :D
Theres no proper way to describe it, so you'l just have to experience it for yourself.
There are a number of reasons I like this game, firstly its allowed me to pay tribute to Valve software's Portal in my own special way, and finally given me an excuse to get one of Dan Paladins jams into one of my games and have it fit perfectly :p
So please, enjoy, and if it's well recieved but people would like it longer, I'm always up for sequels :)

Sequel!!!!

Really nice idea, the only thing that surprised me (in a bad way, the shifteffect surprised me a lot ;) ) was that it was so short, please make some more levels, where you have to think instead of just running around, trying everything until you win...maybe some new feature too ^^ You could add some item that twists the level 90 degrees once (the turn in this game is 180), and changing the level permanently, possibly ruining something that you had to do before you took/used the item (you'd still be able to turn it 180 degrees, but not 90 again, to go back to how it was from the beginning, unless you get another item of the same kind), forcing you to restart the level or whatever...Just don't add lives, stick to the unlimited version, where only time matters if you care about that, lives will only piss people off if they have to start over from the beginning of the game... Another new feature would obviously be moving enemies..this game is fine just as it is though, difficulty can still be added with just spikes
Great!


The-EXP responds:

90 degrees is going to be implemented in the next game, just not how you think :p

Sweet

This is an awesome game, with the essence of portal but the art deco style of the 80's. Truly a work of art.

Awesome

This. Was. Awesome. And I like the fact that you took it from the game portal, which leades ME to believe there is someway to beat that hole.
