It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Adventure Islands aka developer Jussi Simpanen, at least in the realm of mobile games. The last I recall was right around this time in 2019 when Total Party Kill was released and we chose it as our Game of the Week. Ah yes, that is an awesome game, and come to think of it the entire library of Adventure Islands games are awesome too. Tiny Dangerous Dungeons, Super Dangerous Dungeons, Heart Star, and Duke Dashington. That’s a solid lineup. Well, after this mobile hiatus Adventure Islands is back with a new game on the horizon called Tightrope Theatre. Check out the trailer.
I would describe Tightrope Theatre as an action puzzle platformer, as you play a tightrope walker on a unicycle bouncing between tightropes and avoiding all sorts of potentially deadly obstacles as you try and make your way to the spotlight platform finish line. Any fan of Adventure Islands knows that this looks like the sort of thing that is right up their alley, so after a long break I’ll be excited to get my hands on Tightrope Theatre when it launches on PC, iOS, and Android on August 11th. In the meantime you can Wishlist the PC version on Steam right here.
