Gory Tilt Based Platformer Collect Or Die Dashes Onto Android
From the studio behind the minimalist physics puzzler Drawtopia comes a new hardcore platformer by the name of Collect Or Die that is a decidedly less G-rated affair. Created by indie developer Super Smith Bros, Collect Or Die is a challenging sidescrolling platfomer that tasks players with keeping an unending supply of stick figures alive while they leap about danger filled test environments. This gory tilt-based test of reflexes features physics heavy ragdoll animations, expert level platforming, and a heavy dollop of foreboding atmosphere.
As players observe their stick figure test subject via creepy CCTV feeds they’ll need to tilt their device left/right in varying degrees of speed in order to move the shadowy protagonist about the screen. Mastering this movement scheme combined with precise taps on the screen to jump is key to surviving Collect Or Die’s intimidating level design. In order to complete each level players must collect every coin without getting diced into pieces which will trigger a portal to the next stage. Platforming fans looking for a challenge will enjoy Collect Or Die.
Collect or Die is available for $1.99 on Android and iOS alongside a free ad-supported version.
