Uurnog Uurnlimited is a 2D platform/puzzle/adventure game with a whimsical twist, brought to you by publisher Raw Fury and developers Nicklas Nygren, Corinne Cadalin, Harri Dammert, and Björn Malmros. Previously available on Steam, this indie gem—inspired by classics like Super Mario Bros. 2, Dyad, and Lyle in Cube Sector—engulfs the player in gameplay rather than story, so we’ll let you discover the story elements yourself and jump right into our discussion of gameplay.
In Urnog Uurnlimited, you’ll explore a bright neon world; solve puzzles; and steal an assortment of items and animals, bringing them back to your hub world (a.k.a. “Save Room”) for safekeeping. And why are you stealing items and animals? Because this game was designed to provide charming and silly fun, of course! Other gameplay highlights include challenging boss fights, multiple endings, and shared screen co-op, which lets a partner play as a dog with a special ability. (There are three unique dogs to choose from, and they’re all equally adorable.)
When you start your file, you’ll complete a brief tutorial on the basics, then find yourself in a hub world with a series of doors, some opened and the rest locked. To unlock the doors, you’ll need to pass through the opened doors and search for keys. As you explore, you’ll encounter a variety of interactive items and learn how they can help with puzzle-solving. Uurnog Uurnlimited’s puzzles vary in difficulty; some are straightforward, and others are quite challenging. But if you ever mess up while trying to solve a puzzle, you can reset the puzzle without losing a life—which is great, since dying might cause you to lose your collected items.
As you play, you’ll need to watch out for chaos-causing NPCs, which can really mess things up for you. Also, keep in mind that your Save Room saves your accomplishments, but it also saves your mistakes—so watch yourself and stay focused if you want to be successful!
GRAPHICS & SOUND
Vibrant neon colors give this game a cool, energizing feel, and they fit perfectly with Uurnog Uurnlimited’s detailed and engaging level design. Plus, its bright, charming, and geometric characters are quite fun to control and interact with. The game’s glowing graphics pair perfectly with its electric sound, including a cool synth soundtrack (which is algorithmic, adapting its melody, key, and tempo to your gameplay), retro-sounding gunshots, and vivid enemy sounds. All these sensory elements combine to create a killer overall aesthetic that’s unlike anything we’ve seen before—and we really dig it.
With Uurnog Uurnlimited, you get hours of zany fun and plenty of replayability, and for just $14.99, it’s one of the best Nintendeals out there for Switch. If you like what you’ve seen here, we recommend checking out this cool indie port on Switch today!
