Butterscotch Shenanigans' library of games have always been diverse and distinct, linked only by a quirky sense of humor and colorful aesthetic. Crashlands was a base-building crafting adventure, Quadropus Rampage was an isometric hectic arcade brawler, Towelfight 2 was an animal-firing dual stick shooter. And now their next game, Levelhead, will add 2D platformer and robust level editor to their line-up of games.

 Framed as testing for robot AI, Levelhead gives you the means to construct a wide variety of platforming-based levels, from box-pushing and switch-pressing puzzles and cannon-blasting arenas to sawblade-filled hard-as-nails gauntlets. A large toolset lets you precisely place myriad hazards, create paths for blocks and link actions between objects, resize and replace, carefully set pick-ups and powerups, and other options to build your desired platforming stage.

Special power-ups imbue your robotic test subject with a number of abilities: the aforemention cannons, teleport dashing and time manipulation, stealthy bush camoflauge, among others to allow you to create different gameplay types and specific challenges within the game's editor.

Levelhead is slated to release in late 2018 on iOS and Android, and will include both cloud and offlone stprage that'll allow players to build stages on PC, save it online, and then continue their work on a mobile device. For more details, you can visit the official Levelhead site.
