Skyward – Game Jam Build

Skyward is challenging Unreal Engine 4 powered physics based platformer in which you use a ball’s transforming abilities to help guide it through nine cleverly crafted levels.

Skyward is a ball rolling platformer akin to Super Monkey Ball or Marble Madness, but with one big difference – you have the ability to transform into different shapes with different abilities that can help you make your way through the levels. The most simple transformation turns you into a cube and if timed well can help you jump over obstacles. You also unlock spikes which allow you to climb up wooden surfaces and boosts that allow you to cover larger distances through the air.

Ball rolling physics based platformers are nothing new, but Skyward manages to feel fresh thanks to its transforming abilities and clever level design. It looks fantastic too, with its tranquil setting that seems like you’re rolling around a sun soaked mediterranean village. It’s a fantastic little game with fun gameplay, a beautiful game world and levels that present a real challenge – particularly if you’re attempting to achieve the target times. Highly recommended.
