Killer Queen Black is an unusual, two-dimensional platform game, in which we will also find elements of action and strategy. In the game, we play anthropomorphic insects, which compete for items placed on the map. The title is a port of the well-known Killer Queen (2013) game for arcade machines, and its gameplay focuses on multiplayer competition. Liquid Bit studio is responsible for creating Killer Queen Black.
In Killer Queen Black we observe the action from the side. We play in teams of several players, controlling characters belonging to different classes (one of the players always plays the title queen) and wielding one of the five weapons (e.g. swords, lances or... stings). Our task is to take over the berries lying on the map and bring them to our base (the bases of both teams are located on opposite sides of the screen), as well as to fight. Victory can be achieved in one of three ways: by filling up our hive with berries, killing the enemy queen three times, or... by getting to our base on an extremely slow snail. Several maps have been made available to the players.
Killer Queen Black enables us to have fun solo, but focuses on the competition with other players (up to 8 people can take part in it, in two teams of 4 each). We have several modes at our disposal, such as Quick Match, Ranked, Custom and Arena.
Killer Queen Black features two-dimensional old-school pixel-art visuals. The graphics are full of vivid colors and make a positive impression. The title uses functions unique to the Nintendo Switch console - it is primarily about the ability to play two people on one device, using single joy-con.
