What is Clive ‘N’ Wrench?

A word from the Developer
“I’m really excited to be able to bring Clive ‘N’ Wrench to the platform I easily get the most requests for, not only that but on a cartridge too”, said lead developer Rob Wass. “It’s a childhood dream come true, in more ways than one.”
A word from the Publisher
“Clive ‘N’ Wrench perfectly captures that 90s-Esque 3D platformer fun that gamers have been desiring in recent years”, said Martin Defries, managing director at Numskull Games. “Taking inspiration from some of the classics of that genre, with plenty of original ideas of its own, we couldn’t be happier to work alongside Rob Wass to bring his exceptional work to the limelight after 9 years in development.”
