Lone Planet Impetus
Nintendo Switch (2017 port)
| December 9, 2016|
July 21, 2017 (Nintendo Switch)
The game features several characters from Nick's lineup, including shows like SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Avatar: The Last Airbender, My Life as a Teenage Robot, The Fairly OddParents, and Invader Zim, among others. It is considered a spiritual successor to THQ's Nicktoons UNITE! series.
As of October 21, 2016, Ultra Struggle will be ported to the Nintendo Switch.
Gameplay is a bit similar to that of Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. series. You must attempt to knock the opponent(s) off of a stage filled with obstacles that get in your way.
The main difference, however, is that the game drops separate percentages, instead showing the players a pie chart with each character's face on it. Dealing damage to an opponent causes them to lose some of their "slice"; thus, depleting the entire slice will cause them to be KO'd. As one player's slice decreases, the others' increase. This means you must come up with a strategy to defeat your opponents.
Another difference is the fact that items do not spawn randomly; you must build them. These craftable items are called inventions, and they can be constructed using pieces you find in various modes. Inventions are split into three categories:
- Gizmos: They are mostly useful for distractions, since they are not very strong. However, they are light and easy to carry. They can be built with two pieces.
- Inventions: These are well-balanced weapons that deal a decent amount of damage. They require three pieces to complete.
- Super Inventions: They deal the most damage of the three categories, but they may slow players down while being used. They must be built using four pieces.
Inventions of all three categories can be equipped to a player or a character. Equipping an invention to a player gives them access to said invention no matter what character they are playing as. Equipping it to a character allows other players to use it when they play as him/her, but it cannot be used with other characters.
All of the inventions a player/character has can be used through the Hypercube, which is accessed by pressing the left and right triggers simultaneously (ZL/ZR for Wii U, LT/RT for Xbox One, and L1/R1 for PS4 and Impetus).
In each mode, players earn NRG Tokens based on their rank. These tokens can be used as currency in Bobby's Bonus Shop, or energy sources to craft inventions. They can also unlock body parts for custom characters, which can be swapped around in the Mutation Chamber.
Each version can be streamed to other compatible devices:
- From PS4 to PS Vita;
- Wii U to New Nintendo 3DS;
- Xbox One to Windows 10 devices;
- and Impetus to Lone Planet Endurance.
Also, if a player has a My Lone Planet account, they can play with any other people online regardless of which console they are using.
Story: Messed-Up Worlds
The Shredder has assembled a league of Nick's greatest villains -- Plankton, Vicky, Vlad Plasmius, Queen Vexus, Fire Lord Ozai, Puma Loco, Snaptrap, Professor Calamitous, Invader Zim, and the Shredder himself -- to take the Nickeloverse for themselves. You must gather heroes to stop them.
For details, go here.
A classic "Brawl" mode. Four players duke it out in areas from all over the Nickeloverse.
Select a character and choose from one of two playstyles:
- Classic Arcade: A straight-up Arcade mode where you fight randomly selected characters in ten different stages.
- Time Arcade: Beat every character in descending debut order (newest to oldest) within the time limit, which can be adjusted to your preferences. If you have enough NRG Tokens, you can even settle for lower limits.
At the end, you will face off against Shirley from Jimmy-Timmy Power Hour 3: The Jerkinators.
On a side note, each character has their own opening cutscene when you play as them.
Players fight to gather as much slime as possible. Strong attacks will cause a character to lose slime to the attacker. The winner of the battle will get to fight Globulous Maximus from SpongeBob SquarePants featuring Nicktoons: Globs of Doom.
Up to eight players can choose a character and split into two teams, who will enter a trivia tournament where they are asked questions about Nickelodeon's franchise line-up.
One team is selected to take control, and the players on said team are asked a question. If they answer correctly, they earn NRG Tokens and stay in control; if not, control goes to the other team.
A team can "dare" the other team to answer a question for double value. The other team can "double dare", quadrupling the value, or give an answer. After a double dare, the team who dared in the first place must either answer or request a physical challenge. The physical challenge grants a team the most tokens out of all options.
The winner earns a vial of Mutagen Ooze that can be used in the Mutation Chamber to create a custom character.
Here, you can "mutate" a custom character for use in other modes. Purchasing body parts in Bobby's Bonus Shop makes them available for use in the Mutation Chamber. Each type of part gives your character a different kind of special move based on its character:
- Head: Up Special
- Torso: Standard Special
- Arm: Side Special
- Leg: Down Special
Using a different arm or leg for each side creates "hybrid" moves that combine traits of each part's owner.
There are three weight classes to choose from (light, medium, and heavy), and you can make your character masculine, feminine, or gender-neutral. Height can be altered using a slider.
When you are finished with your mutant, you can either save its blueprint for later reference or use a vial of mutagen earned in Double Dare to "create" it (make it playable).
Bobby's Bonus Shop
Bobby Santiago runs a shop in the game, where you can purchase alternate skins, collector's cards, and decorative themes using NRG Tokens you receive in other modes.
|Image And Name||Description and Series|
|Of course, when you make a Nick game, you absolutely CANNOT forget this guy. SpongeBob isn't very smart, but he is friendly and forgiving. He enjoys fry cooking, jellyfishing, and hanging out with his good friend Patrick Star.
He uses karate gloves, bubbles, and his spatula to attack, and can transform into the Invincibubble if his Ultra Meter is completely charged.
|He's very naive, but he makes up for it with a good sense of loyalty. Patrick is one of the first people SpongeBob turns to when he needs help. Now if someone could teach him common sense, maybe he wouldn't have so much of a hard time. But that'll never happen... or will it?
He can latch onto objects with his tongue and do some pretty decent cartwheels to knock enemies out of the way. He transforms into Mr. Superawesomeness when his Ultra Meter is charged.
|Sandy's a squirrel from Texas who has moved under the sea to Bikini Bottom. She yearns to go back to the days of rodeos and country life, but as long as she has good friends like SpongeBob and Patrick, she'll be OK with life as it is.
Like SpongeBob, Sandy is a skilled karate fighter, but she also has a variety of scientific equipment she can use to build things.
|Leonardo is the leader of the Ninja Turtles, a team of mutated animals that fights crime in New York City. He is patient, wise, and calm, and will stop at nothing to protect his brothers.
Leo wields two katanas, which serve as his main weapons in combat. He can use ooze blasters and space gear as well.
|Donnie has a way with machines! He's the most intelligent of the Turtles in terms of technology, so he can usually be found trying to perfect his inventions. He has a crush on a human girl named April O'Neil, and he attempts to get her on his side.
His bo staff is his main weapon, and can knock opponents a fair distance. It can even be used as a vault pole to reach far places. For his Ultra Move, he rams into enemies with the Shellraiser van.
|It's always party time for this young pizza-loving Turtle. Mikey is not as wise, strong, or smart as his brothers, but there's a light in his personality that gives the team a sort of hope for the future.
His nunchucks can be used to rack up combos or hover in the air for a brief span of time. He can also use smoke bombs to hide in the mist and attack by surprise.
|He's the second oldest of the Turtles, and is quite the strong one. Raph can be arrogant; he even views himself as a better leader than Leo. He is usually one of the first brothers to make a sarcastic remark towards a villain of any sort.
Raph can use his personal sais to deal quick damage or even climb up walls. He is also the fastest of the Turtles, and can call up the Mighty Mutanimals to help him out.
|She is a robot designed to protect the world from incoming and potential threats, but she wants to live the life of a perfectly normal teenager. Jenny is a kind, caring person (er... robot), but her straightforward personality can get her in big trouble.
She has several weapons at her disposal, such as laser cannons, morphing body parts, and... her robotic strength in general.
|Brad is Jenny's best friend and a good companion in her adventures. He is bored with his day-to-day life as a teenage boy, and wants a little more action in his life. He's a big-time "ladies' man", but it turns out that this is an act to hide his own insecurity.
Brad's moves involve medium-paced attacks that don't do much damage by themselves, but can be devastating when tied together in combos. He uses his younger brother Tuck for extra range, but the latter's attacks deal notably less damage.
|He's a child prodigy with his own laboratory. Oh boy, THAT'S never been done before... Jimmy Neutron is known for saving his hometown Retroville countless times, and he has a decent amount of friends to back him up. His inventions usually go completely wrong, but he tries to fix the problem at all costs.
Speaking of which, Jimmy uses his shrink ray, jetpack, and other inventions that he prizes most.
|Sheen is one of Jimmy Neutron's best friends, and may or may not have a slight chance of causing the biggest problems in Retroville. Later on, he got trapped on another planet known as Zennu, where he has made a few new friends.
As the Zeenuian Emperor's top advisor, Sheen is equipped with technology used by the people of the planet.
|♪♭Timmy is an average kid, that no one understands. Mom and Dad (and Vicky!) always giving him commands...♭♪ OK, I'll stop. Timmy can be lazy and reckless, but overall, he enjoys communicating with others, especially his fairy godparents Cosmo and Wanda... not to mention his love interest Trixie Tang.
He mainly relies on his magic TV remote, but he has traces of dark magic inside him. (No, Cosmo and Wanda aren't in his moveset. They deserve much more than that.)
Cosmo & Wanda
|See what I mean when I say Cosmo and Wanda deserve more? They're playable characters! Anyway, they're Timmy's fairy godparents who grant his every wish, as long as they follow "Da Rules". Wanda is the more serious one in the couple, while Cosmo is more like comic relief.
They can summon various creatures using their wands, or just fire magic beams. They can also slingshot their baby, Poof, into enemies to release a cloud of fairy dust that stuns them.
|Zim is one of the shortest of his kind, so ironically, he isn't exactly appreciated. He can be menacing, though, and puts maximum effort into taking Earth for himself. Even so, he has recently been having doubts about the Almighty Tallest, and is beginning to wonder what his true purpose is in the Nickeloverse.
He uses Irken technology and GIR to fight, and can sometimes fly around in his Voot cruiser.
|Manny Rivera is an average boy living in Miracle City, but when his crime-fighting parents convince him to join them on their adventures, he becomes El Tigre. Since then, he has been battling Puma Loco and other villains.
He can use his retractable claws in various ways.
|Aang is one of the various incarnations of the Avatar, the chosen hero who will bring balance to the basic elements of the world. It took him a lot of time to master all four elements -- Air, Fire, Water, and Earth -- but eventually, he became a strong warrior.
He can push opponents back with gusts of air, crush them with rocks, and defend himself with fire and water.
|Korra grew up with the people of a water tribe, and eventually realized she was the modern Avatar -- the successor to Aang and many others before him. She faced off against an army of anti-benders known as Equalists to protect a more modernized Avatar universe.
Some of her moves are similar to Aang's, but slower and a bit stronger. Others involve different bending abilities altogether.
|Daniel Fenton attends Casper High School, while at the same time trying to protect the world from supernatural terrors under the alias Danny Phantom. He is hotheaded and full of emotion, but he can be calm and polite when he wants to be.
Danny can possess enemies, release a ghostly wail, and walk through walls.
|Sam is Danny's close friend and current girlfriend. She is very interested in the paranormal, and sticks with him when ghosts wreak havoc. She also considers herself an extreme vegetarian; she "doesn't eat anything with a face".
She may not have any special abilities, but Sam is skilled with Fenton creations, like the Ghost Peeler and the Specter Deflector.
|Arnold's been through a long history, but he continues to be optimistic and thoughtful, and tries to understand how others feel about certain situations. And here's a fun fact: he started off as a claymation short!
He's brought everything from his room into the battlefield, so he can use his highly sophisticated remote to move it around in combat.
|Imagine being the only boy in a house full of girls. Yeah, that's what life's like for this guy. Lincoln usually ends up stuck in the middle of his sisters' disagreements, some of which involve himself. The good news is, he gets along with them quite well... most of the time.
Lincoln gains inspiration from all of his favorite things. He swipes playing cards at enemies like Ace Savvy, douses them in sauerkraut, and shines a blinding flashlight into their eyes.
|Luna is the third-oldest Loud sibling and a self-proclaimed rockstar. When her siblings are feeling down or just need some music to guide them, she's ready to rock on. Her main inspiration is the music sensation Mick Swagger, and she sees him as a great role model.
Luna fights with her amp and electric guitar. The guitar can be used as a mallet or in combination with the amp to knock opponents back. However, she can only go so far with the guitar hooked up to the amp, and will sometimes have to have Chunk pick it up and carry it to other places.
|She's the most athletic of all of the Louds, and tries to turn daily activities into fun games. Lynn teases Lincoln for not being sporty enough, but she enjoys hanging out with him overall.
Lynn is mainly a projectile-based character, and uses the sports balls she owns to deal different amounts of damage, depending on the ball's size and how hard she throws or kicks it.
|She may be the second youngest of the Loud siblings, but she's even smarter than Jimmy Neutron. In fact, she's already graduated from college! Lisa tries to help her siblings out whenever she can, but their respective traits can bother her. A LOT.
Lisa uses different chemicals on her opponents to give them different effects, from dizziness to shock.
|This little guy seems to be a large rabbit, but watch out -- he's really a horrible monster from the world below! Ickis's job is to scare humans, but he can't scare that well without going to school first.
He can grow larger than other characters, and this really lets him pack a punch.
|She is the most mature of the three monsters, and enjoys reading and studying. Oblina comes from a rich monster family and wants a good education so she can live up to her parents' fame.
She attacks with her internal organs, such as her brain, heart, and lungs. She can shapeshift into another character and use their up special, or even tickle their brain (or GPU in the case of robots like Jenny) and induce nightmares.
|One of Ickis's friends in the Monster Academy, Krumm is a kind-hearted and talented creature. He keeps an eye (no pun intended) out for enemies to his friends, and he's got a sort of stench that drives humans away quickly.
Krumm has detached eyeballs that he can bounce around, and his foul smell can poison other characters if they stay near him for too long.
|He was a plain ol' mutt, but he joined the secret agency known as T.U.F.F. to fight crime... now he's one tough puppy! Well, not exactly "tough" -- he still chews his butt from time to time.
Dudley carries around his secret agent weapons, such as laser blasters, laser boomerangs, and the T.U.F.F. Turbo Laser. ...Wow, that's a lot of lasers.
|Rocko decided to move from Australia to America, but it's not exactly the way he expected. Annoying neighbors, awkward situations, and things that make his life more complicated in general. But hey, that's modern life!
He has equipped himself with a comic book launcher, and can use cord telephones as slingshots.
|Bessie is a Honeybee Scout living in San Francisco, and she seeks out every scout badge to transform into her crime-fighting persona, the Mighty B. With a hyperactive, bouncy personality and a wacky imagination, she is known for her goofy antics. Sometimes, however, she can be a liiitle bit bossy.
She uses different Honeybee Scout tools, and is more of a defensive character. However, when she becomes the Mighty B, her attacks are boosted in terms of strength.
|Nickelodeon has a wide variety of characters, but this young tribal villager was the first to originate in a video game series. Tak started off irresponsible, but he grew into a serious, respectful hero.
His Thwark is his main weapon, and can be used in conjunction with the various Juju Powers he has used. His Ultra Move is the Staff of Dreams, which can open rifts to the Dream World and summon Nightmare Creatures.
|When Otis was young, he lost his mother at a sale. He was adopted by another cow named Ben, and they had fun experiences together until his death at the hands of a pack of wolves. Now, Otis leads the Barnyard animals in wacky misadventures and the like.
He uses farm equipment to fight, and he is a medium-weight character with somewhat poor traction -- meaning he can't come to a stop very easily.
|It's Tommy, one of the first Nicktoons characters! He may be a baby, but his adventurous personality can get him anywhere in life. Why he keeps running around town without his parents finding out is up for debate.
Tommy squirts milk out of his sippy cup, and it can be used to push opponents back a bit. He can also ride around in the Reptar buggy his father designed.
|Harvey Beaks is an anthropomorphic bird who lives in the town of Bigbark Woods. He does whatever he can to make his parents happy and follow the rules, but his best friends Fee and Foo want him to just have fun and stop worrying so much. Looks like Harvey's in for a wild ride...
He tosses furberries, which can be used as stink bombs, and can send out a large set of Barkquoise plant pods as an explosive array of bombs.
