Description

A young graffiti artist called Nox has lost his girlfriend. While out looking for her he is sucked into the world of Sideway, an alternative reality that exists on the walls and rooftops of New York. Everything in Sideway is two-dimensional and illustrated on the city's buildings. This world is ruled by the sinister Spray who wants to extend his power and escape to the real world. To have any chance in escaping, Nox has to take on Spray's minions around the city, rescue his girl and finally defeat Spray.

Sideway: New York is a side scrolling platformer that uses a mix of 2D and 3D graphics. The environments consist of 3D objects while Nox, his enemies and all objects are painted on the walls and roofs of the buildings. As Nox moves from wall to wall to roof the perspective changes. The game has a hip hop theme and the graphics are made to look like graffiti paintings. Nox jumps between solid objects like pipes, doors and window frames while trying to avoid or defeat the various spray enemies he comes across. Attacks include kicking, punching and jumping on enemies. Nox learns new abilities throughout the game, for example he can use his spray can to create ledges out of outlines. To earn points Nox can collect pickups that are found all around the levels. In addition to enemies Nox also has to watch out for deadly hazards such as thorn murals, water and electrical fields.

The campaign can be played by one or two players locally.
