Fans of classic Flash games are in for a treat as the Shift Legacy Collection, a definitive edition of the beloved mind-bending Flash game series, is set to launch on PC via Steam on August 7, 2024. Developed by Antony Lavelle and published by Armor Games Studios, this compilation brings together all four installments of the iconic Shift series, which has been played more than 25 million times, offering a nostalgic trip for series veterans and a fresh challenge for newcomers.

Shift Legacy Collection invites you to navigate the black-and-white landscapes of the Shift series, utilizing the unique shift ability to flip each level upside down. This mechanic transforms floors into ceilings, dodges sharp spikes, and creates new pathways, adding a layer of complexity to the puzzle platforming experience. With more than 100 perplexing levels, you must use your wits and reflexes to reach each level’s end.

The collection showcases the evolution of the series, beginning with the original Shift’s relatively straightforward puzzles. Shift 2 introduces Checkered Barriers, adding another layer of strategy to the game. Shift 3 expands the gameplay with Metroidvania-like levels, offering a more open-ended exploration and puzzle-solving experience. Shift 4 ups the ante with multi-character coordination, requiring you to manage and switch between characters to solve increasingly complex puzzles.

The Shift series tested not only my skills as a puzzle platformer enthusiast but also as a developer,” said Antony Lavelle, lead developer on Shift Legacy Collection. “I hope the collection sparks a new interest in complex puzzle games and how they challenge us.”
