STACKED WITH NEW FEATURES The charming stack ‘em up Part Time UFO claws its way onto Nintendo Switch, adding Joy-Con controls, two-player local play, brand new challenges and console-exclusive modes. PART TIME WORKER, FULL TIME UFO! In Part Time UFO, fly Jobski the UFO around and complete odd jobs. Help out at a farm, support cheerleaders, cook up the ultimate dessert at a restaurant, build castles, and much more! Wherever Jobski goes, there are sure to be plenty of jobs waiting. At the centre of all this is Jobski's super special awesome claw. Use the claw crane to grab, move, and stack objects to complete jobs. TWO CLAWS ARE BETTER THAN ONE Pass a Joy-Con to a friend and tackle tasks together in two-player mode. Combine claws and complete odd jobs with the power of teamwork! STACKS MORE TO DO! The Nintendo Switch version features two exclusive modes. How high can you go? Keep on stacking and aim for a high score in the brand new Tower of Infinity. Take on this challenge alone, or hand a Joy-Con controller to a friend for some competitive or co-op fun. Job done? Think again! Completing all the part-time jobs unlocks Treasure Island, a puzzle-solver’s paradise that can also be explored in local co-op. Overcome ever more difficult challenges to progress from one room to the next in this mini adventure! MEDAL WORKER Go above and beyond the call of duty to earn medals and unlock more jobs. With the right mix of finesse and forward planning, Jobski will be a highly decorated UFO in no time! CHANGE YOUR LOOK WITH CLASSY OUTFITS Earn coins by completing jobs and exchange them for costumes to change into. Wearing these can give Jobski a whole new look and new abilities. Whether you want to show your stripes with the Tiger Suit or zip around in Ninja Wear, there are lots of costumes to pick and choose from. LOTS OF FRIENDS (AND FOES?) From a tight-lipped ship captain, a clumsy museum curator, or a fishy professor, to even elephants, dogs, and hamsters, they'll all cheer on Jobski during jobs, let out a sigh when Jobski fails, and show all kinds of reactions. Some of them may also be disguised and hiding in wait... SHARE YOUR MASTERPIECE Job? What job? Sometimes a UFO's just gotta stack to its unidentified flying heart's content. Create fun or artistic shapes and share the results with your friends.

Two years ago, Part Time UFO was launched on Android, and now, that game arrives to Nintendo Switch, with changes and new additions like coop, physical controls, new modes and all the graphics adapted to horizontal handheld mode. A joyful and fun proposal, for those looking at something lighthearted, replayable and ideal for short sessions.

Just make sure to turn the volume down, because you'll get so sick of the game's one song and its different variations that you'll never want to hear it again after hearing it drone on for about an hour.

For those expecting a Kirby-like platformer experience due to the game being from HAL Laboratory, you will likely be disappointed. Instead, Part Time UFO feels more like a series of wacky extended WarioWare type levels that will keep you addicted as you strive to earn every medal in the game.

Part Time UFO is not an especially impressive game. I can’t imagine it being anyone’s game of the year. However, it is undeniably enjoyable, whimsical, and a blast to play with a younger player. With a nice little co-op mode, enjoyable visuals, and a competitive price point, this offering is pretty hard not to love – even if it does get a touch tedious after a little while. Maybe this isn’t a game you should binge, it’s something you’ll certainly enjoy part-time.
