The game’s afoot — or rather — the game’s Tangle Tower.
Yes, UK-based studio SFB Games has just launched its new detective sleuth-’em-up on PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
Coinciding with the title’s new release, the developer dropped a launch trailer to commemorate the occasion. Go ahead and check out the new video down below:
There’s something undoubtedly charming about its comic book-esque presentation, jovial soundtrack, snappy dialogue and convincing voice acting. Plus, it’s nice to see some light puzzle elements interwoven with its traditional point-and-click adventure gameplay.
For those unaware, Tangle Tower launched on Nintendo Switch, iOS and PC back in 2019. It was pretty well-received on Switch and boasts an 85 Metacritic score from 11 critics. Not too shabby, eh?
For more information, here’s the rundown courtesy of the game’s official press release we received today:
Developer SFB Games are pleased to announce that their successful detective mystery adventure game Tangle Tower has launched today on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series S|X.
