Today, publisher Ratalaika Games and developer Lowtek Games Studio announced that they’re putting Parasite Pack on Switch. The collection, which features Tapeworm Disco Puzzle and Flea, is heading to Switch on July 1, 2022.

Parasite Pack is a casual puzzle title while Flea is a challenging 2D platformer. More information about the games included in Parasite Pack can be found below.

Tapeworm Disco Puzzle

Inspiration and obvious retro homage goes to Snake and lolo with a few extra ingredients added to give it its own originality, Tapeworm Disco Puzzle… offers a little bit more to keep the player entertained. It’s a mix somewhere between snake, lolo and lemmings but has enough unique elements to set it apart from all of those. Best described as a more casual puzzle game with occasional ‘thinky’ moments.

Gamers will help uncover the mystery of the fleas acting strangely. Puzzles will become increasingly harder at times but are never too long with fresh challenges and new mechanics every 20 levels or so. Gamers can also team up with a friend in tapeworm for 25 co-op levels.

Each level has an objectives and obstacles like:

  • Avoid enemies
  • Don’t kill the fleas
  • Collect all the notes
  • Help the fleas collect the blood
  • Open Doors with switches
  • Help Fleada get to the gig on time
  • The Tapeworm or the Flea or the Flea or the Tapeworm
  • Flea jumping around a dastardly level full of dangerous spikes


Flea is a challenging 2D platformer with an intriguing back story. Play as Henry the Hyperactive Flea who just can’t stop jumping! Navigate the beasts and collect blood to get to the heart of the problems. These fleas are intelligent and have created a network of bendy straws to help navigate.

Henry must come to terms with his hyperactivity while avoiding thumb tacks and collecting blood for the refu-fleas. In flea you are constantly jumping. You must avoid tacks, pits and other less friendly parasites.

  • Explore 80 levels
  • Meet weird characters
  • Discover secrets.

Every dog has a different theme and soundtrack, more abilities and enemies make appearances in later levels. There are a bunch of other parasites you will meet on your journey from friendly fleas, to ticks, mosquitos and tapeworms.
