Playing as a selection of stretchy, flingable skulls, or SOAS (Semi-Organic Autonomous Skull), Skullduggery! follows the macabre treasure hunters and bailiffs as they search and collect artifacts and taxes from undead debtors for the Infernal Revenue Service, an otherworldly IRS. In each level player’s catapult their SOAS through a variety of platform puzzles and challenges collecting coins and relics and avoiding enemies like skeletons and zombies. Players can re-aim, and re-launch, their skull mid-flight, slowing time as they do so, to change direction and avoid obstacles, hazards or projectiles, or in an attempt to uncover hidden areas and riches.
Single player mode contains 32 large levels spread over four worlds, each featuring a variety of enemies, pitfalls and puzzles to navigate and three objectives that change each time. Each level contains a bunch of objects for players to use, some guiding you through the level and while others help you collect bonuses such as lamps that can be used to burn through boxes and reward you with coins and gems. There are also power-ups to collect like the familiar magnetism that attracts treasure or gigantism that increase your size, letting you break through walls and crush enemies. There is also the choice to hide yourself inside objects like chests, jars and trashcans to avoid enemies and score a critical headshot or simply sneak past unnoticed and unimpeded.
Skullduggery! also includes a multiplayer mode that can be unlocked by purchasing the full game, along with other features including two extra worlds and 13 bonus skulls, where players compete in head-to-head arena battles.
You can get the single player campaign for free here, and additional features can be unlocked for a onetime IAP of $4.99.
