Invert your colour to keep on climbing. Some people call Simon a bit of a square but he has a real passion for reading, learning and most of all exploring. Help him as he explores the world of Invertical, collecting lots of fascinating books and scrolls along the way! This puzzle based platform game requires the player to invert their colour between black and white in order to land on the right blocks. Get it wrong and you’ll go falling through the environment. A portion of earnings from this game go to charity.

Report article RSS Feed Invertical gets a major update!

Invertical is a unique and enjoyable puzzle platform game. Despite already being an enjoyable game with loads of levels, it has been updatged to be even better! With new levels, controller support and loads more changes there's plenty to get excited about!

Posted by OxygenAddict on Jul 20th, 2013

The latest update to Invertical is now available with loads of new content as well as a host of improvements!

You can get it on Indie City for just £1.49 or $2.49, depending on your currency.

Better Control
Invertical now supports controller input. It has been designed to work with the Xbox controller but ought to be compatible with most game controllers, however the button layout may not be quite so logical. For many people using a controller is a more natural experience so if you're uncomfortable with using the keyboard controls, this is for you. So long as you have a controller plugged in before launching the game you can freely switch between using the keyboard or controller. On the note of keyboard controls, you can now use the Up key to jump and down key to invert. This way if you've a large keyboard or for the younger gamer, smaller hands, this means less stretching!

New Start
The very first level has been completely changed. It will now introduce the player to the gameplay concepts of how and when to invert, rather than training the player on jumping. I've also changed the artwork so it is a little less of an assault on the eyes.

Bonus Levels
There are 150 collectible items within the many levels of Invertical, but why do you need to collect them? Well now you have an answer. Collecting all the books and scrolls in the chapter will unlock a unique bonus level. These levels have an extra objective to complete along the way, such as arming up to scare away a monster or retrieving Mrs Gragglepot's cats.

Exploration
The old Great Big World has been replaced by a new area called The Invert World. Here you will find 15 rooms to explore and lots of books and scrolls to collect. Unlocked when you complete the main story, it is an extra area to potter around in and release your inner urge to collect.

Alternate Ending
In the previous version of Invertical there was a right and wrong answer once you caught the final portal. This meant that you might not unlock the Invert World (or Great Big World as it used to be). Now this has been changed to an alternate ending that explores Simon's character.

Getting to Know Simon
Simon has always longed for adventure, much like many of us (partly why I play games!) but what would you do if thrust into this situation? Would you suddenly become a hero or cower in a corner? The introduction to each level has been expanded to explore this and give you a greater insight into Simon's state of mind.

And Much More!
If I keep going this post will be far too long but there's been many more improvements. From fine tuning levels to an improved front end, you'll find Invertical is a much better experience than before... and it was already a fun game to begin with!

Buy it now!
You can buy the latest version of Invertical from IndieCity for just £1.49. If you've previously bought the game on there just use the IndieCity client to update it!

For a little bit more you can also get it on Indievania. This doesn't require use of a download client but due to the way payments work, I need to charge a little bit more. Still cheap though!
