Deadlings: Rotten Edition Brings Cute Zombies To The Switch

Now on the Switch.
Now on the Switch. All in Games

Death is bored and has no friends, so what does he do? He builds an army of Deadlings! Deadlings: Rotten Edition is now available to download for the Nintendo Switch through the eShop. This 2D game features 70 dangerous levels as well as four adorable characters. There are also two gameplay modes available.

With “Project Deadlings,” Death hopes to cope with boredom since he has no friends on his FaceTome account and no one to hang out with. What does Death do? He buys a factory and builds a laboratory to create Deadlings and train his army of zombie minions. As Death’s army grows, the mazes within his laboratory also become deadlier, packed with challenging puzzles and death-defying traps.

Death’s minions are not your regular zombies. There are types of deadly cute zombie minions and each Deadling comes with their own unique abilities. The agile Bonesack, for example, can run really fast and jump like a deer while the Creep is sticky like Spider-Man and can climb walls and even ceilings. Meanwhile, Lazybrain is a careful one. Stencher lives up to his name, has gastric problems, and can fly using his powerful gas clouds.

To find their way through all levels of Death's Maze and find the exit, players have to control the minions and combine all of these Deadlings’ abilities to complete Project Deadlings and successfully train all the zombie minions.

These are the key features of Deadlings:

  • Arcade side-scroller with strategy elements
  • Four different types of zombie minions with unique abilities
  • 70 levels of pure zombie gore fun
  • Additional game mode - Nightmare - only for the hardcore gamers

And these are the new features that players can enjoy in the Rotten Edition:

  • 10 brand new bonus levels
  • 15 new levels in Nightmare Mode
  • Steam achievements and leaderboards
  • Full controller support
  • Nightmare mode unlocked from the beginning
  • Steam Trading Cards and Badges
  • HD graphics

Initial reviews of the game have been positive with some calling it a fun game having the right amount of challenge. Deadlings is described as a clever mix of Super Meat Boy and Lemmings.
