About This Game

A world devastated by past wars is threatened once again. When a former comrade asks for help, Happy the Robot reluctantly agrees to face Layla — once a friend, now a dangerous enemy they thought they had destroyed. The mission: ascend Layla’s tower and destroy the last copy of her consciousness before she can be downloaded into a new body and enact her devious plan.

Monochrome Heights is a tough-as-nails 2D platformer featuring classic run, jump, and slide mechanics — but most importantly, a distinctive color-swapping mechanic that involves phasing between black and white platforms to climb the tower. With crisp pixel art and a modern retro-style experience, the game is inspired by early Super Mario Bros. and Mega Man titles.

  • Traditional tough-as-nails platforming meets a novel phase mechanic where players must swap between black and white to avoid hazards and land on platforms.
  • Tight, simple controls that allow players to blaze forward with speed and momentum, or take it slow and patiently progress.
  • A narrative-focused, single-player story mode chock full of brain-breaking platforming.
  • Hand-drawn character portraits during dialogue that compliment the crisp pixel art.
  • An original music score by Bent Neatly that both drives players forward during intense gameplay and provides a relaxing backdrop for story moments.
  • Robots. Lots of robots.
