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 Shadow Army has many eyes and ears throughout the caves. These Sentries are stationary enemy that lurk under the ground, waiting for Oswald to make the wrong step forward. When Oswald is close enough, the Sentry bursts out of the ground and viciously attacks him with bolts of magma until he is either dead, runs away, or they are destroyed.
