Go To

Capsized is a fast paced 2D platformer focused on intense action and exploration. As a intrepid space traveler, your ship has crash landed on a mysterious alien planet. You must navigate through the perilous environment and fight off blood-thirsty creatures to save your crewmates and escape with your lives!

An extended description from the Steam store's page:

"Artist Jesse McGibney and programmer Lee Vermeulen create an immersive alien world teeming with bizarre life-forms and strange landscapes presented in a unique hand-drawn art style. Combining control elements of first person shooters and innovative physics based combat, Capsized emphasizes action without giving up the smart problem solving of classic platform games.

Use your jetpack to fly through the alien jungle, and tools such as the Gravity Hook to manipulate your environment to skillfully dodge and defeat attacking enemies. You will be challenged - with platforming, puzzle solving, and deadly skirmishing, often all at the same time!"


Provides Examples Of:

  • Everything Is Trying to Kill You: Local flora, fauna, and native inhabitants all try to kill the player on sight. Some creatures resembling moths or slugs however, will obliviously fly or crawl past the player (as they in the background and thus cannot be targeted).
  • FPS: While the game itself isn't an FPS, its control-scheme (and typical sci-fi trapped-on-alien-planet plot, possibly) is inspired by the genre.
  • Interface Screw: Cracks in the screen will appear depending on how much damage the character suffers, mimicking a visor on the edge of breaking. Presumably if the screen completely cracks, then the character will die from suffocation / poison in the air.
  • The Platformer
  • Wreaking Havok: The player can grab onto objects, like boulders, and fling them around to either solve puzzles, or kill local wildlife through blunt trauma.

How well does it match the trope?
