'Zool Redimensioned' Brings Back Classic Amiga Platformer To Modern PCs - Screens & Trailer

Zool Redimensioned is a brand-new reimagining of the classic action platforming adventure has been rebuilt from the ground up for modern audiences.

Originally released by Gremlin Graphics in 1992 on the Amiga to critical acclaim, iconic gaming mascot Zool returns in Zool Redimensioned! 

Zool was ported to several other platforms in the years that followed, and inspired spin-offs in other forms of media, including remixed soundtracks and two young adult novels.

Developed by Sumo Digital Academy and published by Secret Mode, Zool Redimensioned isn’t your typical remake. Zool has been brought back to life by students of Sumo Digital Academy, a talent development program for graduates looking to make their first career move, with skills in various different industries. The Academy’s first students joined in September 2020, and in less than a year have rebuilt Zool and designed its engine from scratch with no prior experience in C++ coding. A year ago, this group had no game design experience, now they’re releasing their very first game in a bespoke engine to run on modern PCs! 

Zool’s old school platforming action will challenge the most hardcore gamers, with modern enhancements that bring the game into the 21st century.

Beat your speed run times, discover secrets hidden across every level, or go back in time and play the original classic game. Re-live the legend of the ninja that started it all!
