Sideway: New York is Maybe Super Paper Mario on the Ceiling, and Floor, And Wall

In Sideway: New York players take on a graffiti artist turned into a piece of his own art after taking on the wrong tagger rival.


It's a shaky premise attached to some mind-twisting gameplay that has your playing as a flat bit of art sliding along the walls, ground, floors and roofs of New York's cityscape. It's probably best to see the game in action so take a look. It hits the Playstation Network and Steam later this month for $10.

This reminds me a bit of A Shadows Tale, what with the whole "being 2D in a 3D world" concept.

I like how you can see the cars and stuff down at street level in the background, and the background visuals in general gives the game a great atmosphere imho.
