Snowhydra games has launched new arcade action title Zarvot on Nintendo Switch, and it is available to download from the Nintendo eShop right now. The premise of the game revolves around cubes with lasers, either tackling the challenging single-player campaign, or battling it out in multiplayer to be the last cube standing.
Official blurb below:
Zarvot is a game for cubes. Tiny, adorable cubes with hopes, dreams, unrequited loves… and unlimited destructive power. Featuring ultra responsive controls rendered at a silky smooth 60fps, Zarvot tasks players with blitzing around as an uncannily anthropomorphic cube, capable of shooting, evading, double jumping, and spinning into opponents with furious relish.
Zarvot features five competitive multiplayer modes ranging from classic Deathmatch, to a sushi collecting scramble, to the Switch-exclusive Joy-Vot wherein one player spawns in enemies to fight their friends. Blast, warp, and crash through walls in over a dozen destructible thunderdomes featuring dramatic rainstorms, environmental dangers, and more! Remember, it’s not about whether you win or lose; it’s about the friends you love to hate along the way.
Additionally, Zarvot features an entire story-driven single-player campaign, as players assume the role of affable cube Charcoal who goes on a journey with their pal Mustard searching for the perfect way to cheer up their friend on their birthday. This heartwarming journey will take players through nine different zones, featuring fully realized dioramas of an abstract world. These comical, cosmopolitan cubes still need to go to flower shops, ride the metro, and sleep in their beds. In Zarvot, snowhydra takes the most humdrum of inanimate objects, and turns them into some of the most well-realized animated characters you’re likely to find
It certainly sounds like a pretty unique game. If you’re still undecided, check out the trailer below to see how it plays:
Zarvot is available now on Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo eShop.
