Flat Pack is a platformer game that will be released for iOS on the Apple App Store, for Android on Google Play and the Amazon App Store, and as a browser game. The player plays as an orange-coloured character that has to reach a specified goal in each level[3] while traversing the faces of 3D shapes. The game was first announced on February 17th, 2017[4].

Gameplay

Flat Pack is a 2D side-scrolling platformer where the player controls a character that navigates the 2D faces of 3D shapes. The objective in each level is to reach a specified goal[3] The character has a propeller on their head, which can be used to propel themselves up[4]. When passing the edge of a face, the player will seamlessly move into the adjacent face[4].
