The Stretchers: Saving the World Will be a Bit of a Stretch
Nintendo has just surprised us with a game available now, as of November 8th, 2019, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. The Stretchers is a physics-based cooperative (1-2 players) action and puzzle game developed by Tarsier Studios (Tearaway Unfolded). You’re medics tasked with saving residents struck by the Dizzies and delicately (not really) bring them to the ambulance! There’s just something about physics-based games, such as Grabimals, that’s way too funny.
About The Stretchers
The world has a bad case of the Dizzies—residents dizzied by Captain Brains—and only you can rescue them! Work with a friend in co-op or skillfully control two medics on your own to overcome the physics-based puzzles of each madcap mission. Either way, how you go about it is totally up to you, whether you work together to transport many Dizzies at once on a stretcher or work in parallel by splitting up dragging the Dizzies to the ambulance one by one. As you play and replay missions, you’ll complete bonus objectives and uncover hidden collectibles with hilarious results!
You’ll also unlock additional hats, costume colors, and furniture for your home base by exploring mission areas and the world map. When you receive a distress call, don’t be afraid to get curious and experiment. You never know what hilarity will ensue, whether it’s the laugh-out-loud writing or yet another unexpected slapstick situation. But don’t let the levity distract you from your ultimate mission: to stop the evil mastermind Captain Brains and the spread of his chaotic Dizzies!
You can purchase the Stretchers on the Nintendo eShop here for only $25.19!
