OlliOlli: Switch Stance is a compilation containing two parts of the OlliOlli series, namely OlliOlli and OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood. The title was developed by the authors of the original - independent studio Roll7, which portfolio also includes such productions as Not a Hero and Laser League.
In the arcade games included in the OlliOlli: Switch Stance set, the action is shown from the side. During the game we play as a skater that constantly flies to the right and performs breakneck tricks. A total of one hundred levels located in ten different worlds await you here. While in the first part of the series we are polishing our skills on the streets, the continuation takes us on a journey to places related to the film industry.
At each stage, filled with obstacles (such as barriers, benches, crates or fences), ramps and alternative paths (the latter can only be found in "two"), a total of five hundred challenges of increasing difficulty await execution. It is worth noting that OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood extends the list of one hundred and twenty tricks from the original with a number of special evolutions unavailable in the first part of the cycle. In addition, the authors have improved the system of comibnization, in which we combine successive tricks, smoothly passing from one trick to another.
The games that make up the OlliOlli: Switch Stance compilation have different gameplay variants. In addition to the Daily Grind, Spots Mode and RAD Mode (which requires the completion of all challenges to unlock), the second installment of the cycle joins the Combo Rush multiplayer game, where a maximum of four players fight to score as many points as possible.
Two-dimensional graphics of the productions included in the OlliOlli: Switch Stance compilation was maintained in a retro style, evoking associations with the era of sixteen bits.
