Retro 2D platformer Zool Redimensioned is now Steam Deck Verified

By - | Views: 21,833

According to an official update posted on Steam, Zool Redimensioned, the 2021 reimagining of the 1992 platformer Zool: Ninja of the Nth Dimension, has now been granted Steam Deck Verified status.

Hey everyone,
We just wanted to let you know that your favourite retro platforming ninja from the nth dimension has been certified VERIFIED for the Steam Deck.

What this means is that Zool Redimensioned will run on the Steam Deck without drops in performance or technical issues!

So, if you like to game on the go, you can play Zool Redimensioned safe in the knowledge that you’ll have the same awesome experience as you do when playing on desktop.

The game already had a Gold rating on ProtonDB and runs well on desktop Linux, but it's nice to see that extra bit of assurance that it works as it should on the Deck.

There was also an update in May which added three local multiplayer mini-games, which should be a good fit for the Steam Deck Dock!
