Oswald is a 2D side scrolling action-adventure platformer set in a surreal spooky underground world that challenges players to triumph over simple to intense platforming puzzles by swinging on a Needle and Thread that will bend and wrap around the environment. Oswald's core gameplay is movement, you can climb up almost any wall, shoot the Needle and Thread into almost any surface to swing across giant chasms, and dash down steep corridors avoiding the various objects rushing towards you and crushing down on you. Keep on moving, never stop swinging, leaping, and climbing, or the evil shadows of the cave will overrun you!
The bulk of the Shadow Army is composed of the Shade, they wonder the caves aimlessly, searching for Oswald. When they find him, they will screech and charge towards him relentlessly, climbing up walls, and leaping over chasms to close the distance and tare him to shreds. They will stop at nothing until he is dead, or they are vanquished.
