Synopsis

Based on the Portal-inspired Flash game called Shift, Shifting World on 3DS features the same basic premise but with added features and expanded content. Shifting World has players guiding a man who has been forcibly transported into another dimension. To help find his way back home, you must run, jump, and "shift" the environment -- transforming black into white and vice versa -- so you can find a path to escape.



Key Features:

  • Complete all stages in adventure mode or improve your speed in time attack mode
  • Use the shift mechanic to alter your environment
  • Jump over spikes and avoid other hazards while navigating your way to each stage's exit

For the price I paid ($7.00), you can't go wrong. I consider myself to be more towards the hardcore spectrum of gaming, but this casual game is a great way to pass the time. It's simple and easy for anyone to pick up and start playing.

Quite a cool game. I've played it for a couple of hours so far and I think I'm starting to get the hang of the "shifting." It's not an action game, it's a series of puzzles. The key is learning to anticipate what your environment will look like when it is "shifted" so that you can position yourself right for the shift.
The puzzles get more complex as you go along with new elements added along the way.

Shifting World is just that, a shifting world of black and white. The goal is to get to the door of each level, grabbing keys, and avoiding obstacles such as spikes, using the left and right buttons to switch the direction of the environment.

The only thing I don't like about this game is that it uses the circle pad to move your character. It's a little awkward. The levels are fun to play though, and I like the overall feel of the graphics and how they go well with the gameplay and music.

I also think this would have been better as an eShop title and doesn't deserve the huge $30 retail price tag. It's good, but not $29.99 good. I got it used for $2 even. I still highly recommend it though, but definitely will sell my physical copy once it goes digital and buy it through the shop.

I didn't quite expect this game to sting my brain a little, but wouldn't you know it; it actually managed to succeed in doing that. Shifting World is an entry in the Shift series (Honestly, I didn't know this was part of a series when I got the game) exclusively built for the Nintendo 3DS. The Shift series in general is a series of platform-puzzle games that actually play out more like largely elaborate maze games, and what it does works well.

Let me just provide an example so you know what I'm talking about: You are standing on black platforms with a white background. When you "shift" the environment, you stand "inside" that platform, and now the background is black with white platforms. Your position and the colors reverse with this mechanic, and Shifting World's main mechanic is exactly this. When you first play the game, it'll seem easy, because the levels in those first couple worlds really aren't that hard. But HOOOOH BOY. Believe me when I say this game is absolutely, positively brain-teasing!

How so, you may wonder. Well, not only is there that snazzy shifting mechanic. There are also keys to collect to unlock locks that prevent you from accessing certain parts of the level, switches labeled 1, 2, and 3 that do a similar effect, holes in certain platforms that behave like the shifting mechanic except your position doesn't alternate, gravity switches, and even a mechanic where you can squeeze the game's two dimensions into one flat dimension, granting you access to platforms that were previously in the background. With all these toys to play with, you can bet the developer(s) crafted the game's seven worlds intelligently, so keep your brain strapped in!

One of the few games I can crank the 3D setting up high. Pretty easy to get the hang of it, but it's still challenging enough to encourage replay. Like other reviews the lower screen map is pretty hard to follow, but if you just look where you are & a short area around you can get a good idea where to shift. The 1 thing I don't like is the response of the jump button. 2 or 3 out of 4 times you will fall onto the spikes as you pressed jump but didn't. Requires patience to get through each world & when you begin to get annoyed at your progress, it's time for a break. For the price a great addition to your collection.

A good puzzle type of game. Not necessary to move quickly, you can shift and then shift back to see what will work best. A good game that can be picked up and played through a stage and then put down.

I remember seeing this game on Amazon originally and thought it had intriguing box art, and additionally, is an Aksys game and they usually don't put out bad titles. So I put this game on hold, but went to 5 Below the other day and saw that it was there for $5. It seemed really odd to me that a 3DS game was available for that price, so I was extremely skeptical about the game, considering it was thrown in with games such as Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer movie game (which I picked up at Gamestop for $2 as a joke, and it was terrifying). So amidst all the lame titles, I saw this, and decided to finally give it a try and keeping an open mind.

First off, the plot line is dumb. I don't even know why this game isn't straight up honest in admitting it's JUST a puzzle game. The "storyline" is a pointless excuse for them to throw in tutorials, which by the way, are poorly timed. I'll be in the middle of jumping, and midair, it'll tell me a pointless piece of advice I figured out a few levels ago. What exactly is the point of doing that? And on top of that, the gameplay is super stiff, making it so that jumps have to be perfectly timed, or you won't make it. This makes it quite annoying and repetitive.

The game world is extremely easy to get lost in, which would be perfectly fine being that it's a gameplay mechanic of this odd looking world. The problem being, often times it'll show you arrows pointing to where your destination is, and what I came to discover is these arrows often mislead you into areas on the map that send you in the wrong direction, and take out a chunk of unnecessary time. It almost makes me wish they took out the arrows to begin with, although they are helpful at times.
