Flipping Death does share plenty of DNA with Stick it to the Man! - ranging from the floatiness of its platforming to the ability to read the minds of other characters - but that doesn’t stop it from being a far superior offering in almost every way. We’re still not quite sure why Death is possessing the souls of the living and sorting out the loose ends of the dead, but it makes for a memorable black-humoured adventure that deserves to haunt your Nintendo Switch immediately.

Flipping Death is Zoink’s best game to date. The humor is top notch like usual, but the game is such a refined product. The puzzles are clean and easy to grasp, there is some solid replay value, and every character you possess does something unique. The only disappointing thing is that it feels cheap to rely on the game’s helpful tools. Personally I felt that I lost a little something in the process by doing so. In the end though, it all depends on the experience players find most desirable. All what matters is this though: Flipping Death is an adventure game everyone can enjoy.

Life and death become delightfully wacky in Flipping Death, with a world just as unhinged for the living as it is for the dead creating plenty of hilarious moments across both sides of the cast. The exaggerated personalities and absurd situations would make for a fun story on its own, but through Penny's power to possess the living, their absurdities find practical purpose in solving puzzles that fit their silly concepts. The humor ensures a constantly lively game full of fun quips and situations to keep the player going, so even though the platforming and physics aren't hot on their own, they feed into plot and puzzles well enough that the player can enjoy Flipping Death's writing and puzzle design with only minor impediment.

Flipping Death ist voll von Ironie auf die Lebenden und auch ein bisschen auf die Toten, doch genau das macht es zu etwas Besonderem. Wenn die Fehler und die Dinge im Spiel nicht wären, die mich ärgern, gäbe ich sogar eine bedingungslose Kaufempfehlung. Doch mich haben sie geärgert, die Rechtschreibfehler in den Untertiteln. Die Untertitel, die viel zu schnell oder zu langsam sind und deswegen nicht zum Gesagten passen. Die Sense, die irgendwie ein Eigenleben hat. Der Bildschirm, der manchmal einfach schwarz und traurig wird. Vielleicht könnt ihr drüber wegsehen und Flipping Death so eine verdiente Chance geben, denn eine solche Story werdet ihr so schnell nicht wieder erleben. Außerdem muss jemand Penny helfen, sich in ihrem neuen Job zurechtzufinden, oder nicht?

Flipping Death ist ein skurriles, faszinierendes und schwarzhumoriges Adventure, welches mit einer witzigen Handlung, interessanten Charakteren und einem frischen Konzept aufwarten kann. Die Atmosphäre des Spiels, die auch vom wundervollen Soundtrack getragen wird, ist derart dicht, dass jede weitere Spielminute eine wahre Freude ist. Leider geht die Handlung etwas schleppend voran und die Steuerung macht euch des Öfteren einen Strich durch die Rechnung. Abseits dessen sollte der Titel Fans des Adventure-Genre zu begeistern wissen.

If you like your games with an offbeat sense of humour and plenty of personality, Flipping Death comes recommended. Its central game design hook of flipping between life and death makes for an interesting world to navigate and puzzles to solve, and its characters are so oddball and endearing you’ll want to hear every conversation in full, not to mention find out how it all ends.
Flipping Death ist ein absurd-witziges Adventure, das zwar keine große Herausforderung bietet, das aber durch seinen Charme ausgleicht.

Flipping Death ist ein atmosphärisches Puzzle-Adventure mit Schönheitsfehlern.

However, it had some pretty big shoes to fill, and it left me slightly wanting. I really hope this isn’t the last we see of this universe, and I’d love to eventually get a direct sequel to Ray’s adventures from the original, but this serves as a wonderful appetizer in the meantime. If you’re looking for some low stakes, goofy fun, you could do far worse.
