    Publisher FDG Entertainment announced the retro action platformer, Venture Kid, is coming to the Nintendo Switch as a console exclusive. 


    Here is an overview of the game:

    Venture Kid is a lovingly crafted 8-bit retro action platformer that goes beyond just pixels and chiptunes. It shines with excellent level design, highly entertaining action levels, responsive controls and a great variety of bosses.

    Back in the golden age of cartridge games, the development team fell in love with those highly creative games made by small teams who seemed to do wizardry with the limited hardware at that time. Many video game heroes were born back then and we’d like to rekindle one of the best series ever made. Check out the video to find out more, can you guess which one it is ?

    Grab your controller, blow the dust of the D-Pad and travel back through time. Venture Kid is here to deliver!

    Your Mission:

    The evil Dr. Teklov is about to build a secret weapon, disguised in his huge space fortress. Time is running out but our hero Andy stepped up to defeat him and fight his way through Teklovs minions. Join Andy and prepare yourself for a dangerous journey that demands great skill and determination. Will you succeed?

    Key Features:

    • Nine action packed levels and bosses.
    • Chiptune soundtrack by Matt Creamer (Retro City Rampage).
    • Eight unique and useful Power-Ups to help you on your quest.
    • Many secret areas to find and explore
    Venture Kid is available on smartphones. A release on Steam is also in the works.
