In Cloudbase Prime your shift on a gas giant mining platform does not go as planned. Move terrain to clear paths, defeat enemies, and launch yourself skyward. Shoot robots while jumping. A decent Monday.
Find new weapons and powers for your robot suit as you descend into the colorful clouds of Cloudbase Prime. Discover friendly robots, discover murdery robots, grappling-hook onto enemy airships, fight giant bosses, and swim inside huge floating jellyfish.
Cloudbase Prime started its life as a 7DFPS entry in 2012. Tyrus designed the game to be a fun first person platformer with a jump/launch mechanic that required the player look down. This was partially inspired by how good the platforming in "Jumping Flash!" felt, but hoped to be more actiony with mouse-look aim and terrain-moving super powers. Tyrus liked it, and other people liked it, too. So he kept working on it, intermittently. He started working on it full-time in late 2015.

"Great visuals, fun gameplay and hilarious audio make this a game we can't recommend highly enough."
- Calum Fraser, Alpha Beta Gamer
