Shift Puzzle Game Review

Feb 8, 2011

[Update 2/25: Handmark has since updated Shift to include a better control scheme. I’ve also been told app-to-SD support is coming. Thanks Handmark!]

Shift is a unique puzzle platformer originally developed for the desktop and now available on Android courtesy of mobile media company Handmark. In this minimalistic game-noir you find yourself being greeted as Subject 12378 (although the market game description and original use Subject 32763). You’ve found yourself the subject of a twisted experiment and are trying to find your way out. Using the games on-screen controls you must try to run, jump and “shift” your way towards the door while avoiding spiked death traps.
