The Ninja of the Nth Dimension is back thanks to game development students at the Sumo Digital Academy. Zool Dimensions is a remake of the 1990s classic "Zool" by the now-defunct developers, Gremlin Graphics, and will have players explore vibrant retro landscapes, discover hidden secrets and take down menacing bosses in a modern reimagining of the classic action platforming adventure game.

What is the release date of Zool Redimensioned?

Zool Redimensioned will officially launch on the 18th of August 2021, exclusively for PC via Steam. You can add the game to your wishlist so long, on the Steam Store page.

We're unsure what the retail price of the game will be, however, half of the revenue generated will go feed into the Sumo Digital Acadamy student support initiative.

Zool Redimensioned: Gameplay

Zool Redimensioned will have players "jump, spin and shoot" Zool across "eight alien worlds". Players must guide Zool in his journey to defeat his nemesis, Krool, by taking down menacing bosses in order to save the universe.
