Corn Kidz 64 stalks the Switch today

BogoSoft, the developer behind the popular N64-era inspired platformer Corn Kidz 64, has exciting news for fans today – the game is coming to the Nintendo Switch! This highly anticipated title will be available for purchase on the eShop for $7 and will require 196 MB of space on your console.

Corn Kidz 64 is a 3D platformer that pays homage to the classic 64-bit worlds of the past. In this “pilot episode” of the game, players will explore a world that is roughly 1/3rd the size of the classics, but packed with just as much charm and nostalgia.

The story of Corn Kidz 64 follows the one-horned goat named Seve, who is plagued by a recurring dream. His friend Alexis is determined to help him break free from this cycle, but first, they must confront a mysterious issue in the palindrome-themed town of Wolloh’s Hollow. As Seve and Alexis embark on their adventure, they will encounter a variety of challenges and obstacles that will test their skills and determination.

Players can expect a unique gameplay experience with features such as climbing and headbutting, exploring small and large worlds, tackling linear tower stages, and uncovering hidden bonus areas. With roughly 4-8 hours of gameplay, players will have plenty of content to enjoy as they navigate through the fully featured world filled with enemies, NPCs, boss battles, and a dynamic soundtrack.

One of the standout elements of Corn Kidz 64 is its slower and weightier platforming mechanics, which offer a refreshing change of pace from traditional platformers. Players will need to master Seve’s abilities and use them strategically to overcome obstacles and defeat enemies. The game also features squash and stretch cartoon animations, adding a touch of whimsy to the overall experience.

In addition to the main gameplay elements, Corn Kidz 64 also boasts a plethora of unique features, including the ability to impale defenseless creatures on Seve’s horn, discover cryptic secret areas, and uncover hidden palindromes scattered throughout the game world. Fans of the developer’s previous work, such as the indie platformer “Lyle in Cube Sector,” will find plenty to love in Corn Kidz 64’s nostalgic world.

For players who own a Switch Online Nintendo 64 controller, Corn Kidz 64 offers a unique control scheme that utilizes the controller’s unique features. By pressing R on the title screen, players can access the “trident controls” mode, which enhances the gameplay experience and adds a new layer of immersion to the game.

Overall, Corn Kidz 64 is a must-have title for fans of classic platformers and retro-inspired games. With its charming characters, engaging gameplay, and nostalgic appeal, this game is sure to be a hit among players of all ages.
