'Platformer-without-platforms' Magnetic by Nature coming to Ouya first in May

Team Tripleslash's 2D "platformer-without-platforms" Magnetic By Nature will launch in early May on the Ouya Android console as a timed exclusive, developers announced today.

The title is a redesign of Magnetic By Nature: Awakening, a short game the team created and released through Xbox Live Arcade in April 2013. The game is reminiscent of a platforming but contains very few platforms for players to utilize, according to developers.

In Magnetic by Nature, players will control the last surviving robot exploring the ruins of an ancient civilization. The robot's magnetism can be used to attract and repel objects, propelling the robot against and away from other magnets to navigate through the labyrinthine environment.

Magnetic by Nature is single-player only and includes more than 100 levels. Check out the trailer above to see the game in action.
