Falling Elevator – Hyper Casual Demolish Escape Survival Game is another “no publisher listed” title, along with luminaries such as Tuk Tuk Extreme. However, they all actually have one publisher. You can find them by going to the options menu on the Switch home screen. They are Romanian studio, Instamarketing and Game SRL.

It’s strange that Instamarketing didn’t list themselves this time because Falling Elevator is actually decent. It’s a very simple game. An elevator falls down a tower, and various moving objects block your path. When these obstacles pop up, you hit the brakes, wait until the coast is clear, then keep dropping until you safely hit the ground. There are a variety of levels, each one more difficult than the last. I liked it. Not complex gameplay, but it worked well here.

The only glaring issue with Falling Elevator is the generic Latin text in the newspaper on the Game Over screen. There really aren’t any others. Falling Elevator isn’t complex enough to have many others.

For two dollars, Falling Elevator provides a simple but engaging casual game. There’s nothing really to complain about besides the text. I’m serious. The same can’t be said for the other games they put out, but this one is good for what it is. Well done, Instamarketing. Will their next one be any good? If Midnight Works is anything to go by, maybe, as this developer is slowly improving (their latest, Deep Space, wasn’t completely awful). Let’s hope for the best here with Instamarketing.

Overall: Falling Elevator is a good casual title for two bucks from one of the worst publishers on the Switch. Instamarketing should pat themselves on the back.

Verdict: Recommended

P.S. Their future titles weren’t bad either, like Fortress Building Puzzle!
