The first update for Rifter is here! v1.1



Rifter is challenging... it is supposed to be! And while many players like the game the way it is, some players were asking for a slightly more forgiving experience. The latest update provides just that!

Introducing: accessible mode!

You can now choose to play Rifter in a more casual mode, which reduces the game's difficulty quite a bit. The key changes:
  • slightly slower overall game speed
  • swing-fling indicator, showing you where you would land when releasing the hook
  • unlimited respawns from checkpoints
  • some upgrades unlocked right from the start, without paying a single shard
  • online leaderboards are disabled, play at your own pace
Should you realize you don't like the mode you're currently playing in: don't worry, you can freely switch between the two modes at any time, without losing any progress! :)

If you were considering getting Rifter before, but thought it's too hard, now is the time! ;)

I hope you're enjoying this new mode!

Thanks for reading,
Max

Reviews

“Rifter is super stylish, and its use of colour, exciting music, movement, and simple but rewarding controls is really impressive.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“It is really fun to play, unforgivingly difficult and packed to the brim with replay value and well thought out levels.”
9 / 10 – Cultured Vultures

“Rifter is by far one of the, if not THE most fun I’ve had playing a game this year. It’s original yet nostalgic. Fast, yet strategic. Both enjoyable and compulsive. Vibrant graphics and a banging soundtrack.”
8.4 / 10 – Nerdable
