Spinny Blue Things Platforming: A Gander At Mekazoo

Side-scrolling platformer

If you like games where small blue animals curl up into balls, charge up spins, then rocket around loop-the-loops, you might want to keep an eye on Mekazoo [official site]. It's a side-scrolling platformer looking jolly '90s in general, not simply Sonic-y mind, with mechanical animals whizzing around colourful worlds and bashing enemies and collecting shiny things. Here, come see in the new gameplay trailer all these words were written to introduce:

Ayup, what you're seeing there is a wall-jumping kangaroo, a frog with a grappling hook tongue, and a spinny armadillo, and the game's got a burly panda and a flying pelican too. You'll start out as the armadillo, see, then earn new forms and powers by smashing robobosses. And it has a bouncy, groovy soundtrack.

"Mekazoo is inspired by the platformer classics we spent every second with after school, like Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country," creative director Jarrett Slavin said in an accompanying announcement. "We are combining all the lessons learned from those masterpieces and the innovative ideas we've spent decades brainstorming to deliver the game we wish existed since we were kids."

Developers The Good Mood Creators plan to release Mekazoo some time from October to the end of 2015.
