The characters' abilities in Unit 4 offers a large amount of different combinations ready to be mastered and explored. Thanks to the char swap mechanic, even one player can combine all the effects making approach to action and puzzles always fresh and open to experimentation. With 2 to 4 players the synergies and combinations are even more different and interesting. Want an examples of simple synergies? The Dash from Red can shoot other characters away to cover a large gap between platforms while The Grappling Hook can be attached to other characters far away. A Player could use Blue to double jump,then swap to Red to dash and then to Green to hook a far away object and reach an higher ground!


The universe will be the star of the show in Unit 4: filled with strange creatures and different cultures, this setting is highly expandable while keeping a solid narrative vision. Planets of any type, several populations, weird animal species and galactic stores are waiting to be discovered by the players!


While playing Unit 4 the player will have the chance to unlock different minigames that could be played as stand alone once the game will be completed.
