An absolute klassic

Looks like the datamined info from Mortal Kombat 11 concerning original Mortal Kombat movie content was spot-on.

It's likely that these costumes will include the voice samples that were dug up by dataminers, which were recorded by stars from the original movie.

Gravity-based puzzler "Girabox" comes to Switch on Nov. 27th, 2020

Do you understand the gravity of the situation?

Looking for a puzzler that lets gravity do the work? Girabox could be just the game you're looking for. It's coming to Switch on Nov. 27th, 2020, and is priced at just $2.50. The game takes up 151MB of space, and you can get a full rundown of the experience below.

Move the world around, not the character! Rotate the levels and let gravity do the rest to solve the puzzles and dominate the leaderboards.

This minimalist puzzler offers a unique premise for an innovative and deep gameplay: here you don’t control your character, but rather the world around it. Gravity is the only force applying motion, so you need to rotate the levels until your character reaches down to the ultimate goal. Every rotation is counted, meaning that the smaller score, the better! Be smart and compete with others for the online leaderboards podium.

The minimalist visuals, the smooth controls and the puzzles architecture are specifically designed to provide a tight and frictionless experience through all the many levels available.


- Ideal for short sessions and to “play on the go”
- A lot of puzzles
- Innovative mechanism
- Minimalist, tight and smooth
- Speedrun modes and online leaderboards
- Chill ambient music by pATCHES
