Following its announcement in September, Playdigious’ critically acclaimed puzzle adventure game, Little Nightmares, is now available on mobile. The game has already been released on the App Store as of today but is still pre-registering on the Play Store.
Little Nightmares on mobile features a revamped interface, Game Center achievements, controller support, and the ability to share progress between iOS devices. The game is also compatible with MFi controllers, which is good news for those who’d rather not platform on touch-screen devices. However, with the mobile version mainly focusing on side-scrolling action, it’s perfect for smaller devices and touch-screen play.
About the Game
Set in a mysterious world, Little Nightmares follows the journey of a little girl named Six. She must escape the Maw, which is an underground iron vessel stalked by lurking monstrous beings. You’ll be platforming, solving environmental puzzles, and practising patience as you attempt to make your way through this journey and escape to safety.
Little Nightmares debuted in 2017 as a survival horror game with a very unique stylistic approach. Tarsier Studios developed it for consoles and PCs while Bandai Namco Entertainment released it. This is not the first time the series is available on mobile. We saw a spinoff to the original title, Very Little Nightmares, developed by Alike Studios and released in 2019.
Lovely Little Nightmares
With a whimsical environment, these games are packed with secrets, collectable gnomes, and all things eerie that lurk in the dark. They capture the childhood curiosity and fear of the unknown in one grand package that feels rewarding to play.
Upon its original release, Little Nightmares quickly became a fan favourite with its creepy and quirky antagonists. It is an atmospheric puzzle adventure game that hooks you in within the first few minutes. Once you start playing, you can’t help but wonder who exactly is Six. Why she is wearing a yellow raincoat, where she is, and why everything is so huge compared to her.
With Supermassive Games developing Little Nightmares 3, which is expected to launch in 2024, now would be a good time to check out Little Nightmares and Little Nightmares 2, if you haven’t already. It seems like the third game will have many of its own twists while using a consistent world and equally surreal enemies.
The franchise continues to evolve as it expands, experimenting with the likes of Very Little Nightmares. The mobile release of Little Nightmares was delayed in March this year. The developers wanted to polish things up so fans could truly enjoy the game, even after a slight wait. You can download the game on the App Store for iOS here. Or pre-register for it on Google Play for Android here.
