The key Features

Physics based conjoined space alien puzzle fun

In Shiftlings you wobble your way alone or with a friend through the depths of space while your goal is to get both our alien friends to the end of each level. Preferably without any casualties!

Our Space Janitors are not the smartest guys in the Universe which leds them to crashing their flying saucer often. During one of the last crashes they lost all their air supply and are now forced to share the remaining air while being connected by the air cable and exchanging air back and forth.

In single player mode, the player can switch the controls between the two on top of switching the size between both, while in co-op mode, each player controls one of the two twins while both players can switch size at any time. The fact that both players can switch size at any time might test your friendship while playing Shiftlings, so be prepared for some chaotic fun!

We obviously love our baby but we are biased. If you don't believe us, read what others have to say

  • ".. an hilarious but brilliant brightly coloured mess that will have co-op gamers arguing over puzzles and ‘accidentally’ killing one another in a quantity not seen since Portal."

    - rhythmcircus.co.uk
  • "The sight alone is enough of a giggle, but you should see them wobbling across the screen - it's hilarious."

    - Pocketgamer.co.uk
  • "There may be many parents biting their tongues whilst playing with their kids to avoid red, snotty, tear-stained faces after an outburst along the lines of “STOP PRESSING THE DAMN BUTTON YOU LITTLE SHIT!”"

  • Shiftlings can also be played in co-op mode and that probably means it’s going to be twice as hilarious as you work out the air shifting mechanics with your friends.
