MasonicGamer.com: Back in 2008, a free flash based game was released by the name of Shift. It was a rather unique puzzle game in which the player navigated areas by shifting the world upside down. The black & white visuals stopped players from becoming confused by making it clear what side of the world you were currently on. It was a great little title then and it’s sequels are also worthy of similar praise, dare I call it the Portal of 2D games?
Shifting World marks the series’ debut on the 3DS and with it brings changes but unfortunately none of them make for a better game. The basic concept of a little man running around a black & white environments using the shift ability to find exits is still here. The biggest change however is that Shifting World is a much bigger game than it ever was during it’s flash based days
