Play the free demo here:

Flightless is a puzzle-platformer where you and a friend can control ducks that have had their wings clipped as punishment for stealing. You are sent into dungeons to collect enough gems to pay off your crimes, armed with nothing more than a magic ladder.

You can’t jump or fly – that’s the puzzle. But your magic ladder can smash enemies, activate switches, bend round corners, go through teleporters and most importantly, collect gems for you.

2-player-mode can be activated or deactivated at any time without interrupting the game. You can split up and explore separately or work together to solve puzzles.

Oh man, what happened to this gem? This is probably the best 2012 submission that still isn't done.

Eh, I wouldn't say that this'll be too big a holdback for Flightless...if anything, the longer it's being worked on, the more creative Nitrome can be with it! After all, their games are stunningly well-crafted...if anything, Nitrome should consider releasing some of their other games on Steam, with new added features! For instance, maybe Nitrome Must Die with a four-player battle mode, or even online co-op...either way, Flightless is looking great so far, and getting held back won't let our hopes fade away that easily, for sure!

I got news


Flightless is currently on hold and has been for a while. We're not ruling out going back to it as we loved it but our focus is on mobile at the moment.

We do however have an unannounced title in development that you will probably like if you liked flightless. It has a similar dungeon crawling gem collecting structure but with a different mechanic. The visuals are similarly awesome too and have a similar vibe.

Basically the reason for working on that and not flightless is down to our focus on mobile and it being headed by a different artist who we wanted to give some room for flare. The game is based around the limitations of mobile but you have full control over the movement (no auto running) so it would translate well to keys or a gamepad. Because of that it may well end up being a duel mobile and PC release and in that our first steps at branching beyond mobile.

Im not sure when we're going to announce it but it's already pretty far along."
