Aksys announces Shifting World for Nintendo 3DS

Fishing Cactus’ puzzle platformer Shifting World is coming to the Nintendo 3DS with help from the folks at Aksys Games. You may have heard of the Flash-based web game Shift. Shifting World is based on that series, but takes it further with new art, a level editor, 3D functionality, and a level generator that uses the 3DS camera as a barcode scanner.

If you’ve never played Shift, it’s a black-and-white sidescrolling platformer where you’ll solve puzzles by changing the world from black and white to work around obstacles. Shifting World adds 3D to that, adding a new layer of depth with a 2D-to-3D toggle. There will be over 60 levels to shift though.

Shifting World is scheduled for a 2012 release on Nintendo 3DS. We have some new screenshots in our gallery below.
