Naught was originally released on iOS back in August 2011 and was followed by the sequel Naught 2 in October 2013. But both eventually disappeared after the folding of their developer, Blue Shadow Games.
But it appears that Blue Shadow Games, or at least some of its members, have found a new lease on game development life as Wild Sphere. And one of the new studio’s early efforts is “reawakening,” in partnership with Genera Mobile, the Naught franchise with the release of Naught Reawakening.
Like its predecessors, Naught Reawakening is a gravity-based platformer. In it, you guide a shadow cat named Naught as he makes his way through a dark and mysterious underground world (reminiscent of Limbo and Badland) by rotating the environment around him.

Like Naught 2, Naught Reawakening features enhanced visuals that are a far cry from the plain graphics of the original Naught. It also boasts procedural animations that adapt Naught’s movements to changes in his surroundings.
And like Naught 2, Naught Reawakening features more than 30 levels with three bonus levels and a time trial mode for each level.
Naught 2 was reviewed rather favorably here on AppAdvice, so we’re glad to have it back through Naught Reawakening.
