About This Game

"In the glade, there grew a tree.
Merry, Merry king of the woods was he.
Deep in his heart lived spirits, three.
Dark secrets had this family."

In Where is my Heart? you play the story of a family of forest spirits. Their world gets broken up into fragments which you have to piece back together in your mind. Each of the three characters can transform into a magical creature along the way. The Rainbow Spirit allows you to rotate the world around and jump across space; the Bat King can see hidden platforms which only exist for him; the Antler Ancestor can jump on the stars. Help the three spirits find their home tree again!

Fun little platformer. Takes like 1.5 hours to 100%. You play a family of monsters each with a special ability. The maps are kind of wierd, they are all fragmented and the pieces are not lined up in order. You might go left through one porion and end up completley on the other side. I don't know how to explain this properly so watch this video quick.

Where is My Heart seems more like something you would play for free on some flash website than something you would want to pay 8EUR for.
It's a cutesy platformer, but not a particuarly well done one. Your task is to navigate three little animal-like beings through extremely disorienting scenes, sometimes doing blind jumps in the hopes of reaching a platform that you have no way of knowing is there.

Unfortunatelly, I can't really recommend it for the current price, unless you are a huge fan of this particular kind of puzzle. There are many platformers that are both better and cheaper than Where is My Heart.

Where is my Heart? is an adorable puzzle platformer that puts you in control of three little monsters that happen to be bestest friends. They collect hearts (the cute kind, not the still-beating kind) to feed to their tree friend, but ♥♥♥♥ up and feed him some black hearts. This makes the tree float away and the entire world fracture into scrambled shards.

As you can see from the screenshots, this makes getting around kind of a pain in the ♥♥♥. The main gimmick is that you see the levels from a scrambled perspective and have to figure out how each piece relates so you can navigate to collect all the hearts and reach the exit. If this doesn't sound particularly fun, well, it isn't. Not only does it take a lot of mental bandwidth to keep the levels straight in your head, a lot of the links between pieces can't be established without some guesswork or some oftentimes-fatal leaps of faith. You control each monster one at a time, with a dedicated button to switch between them. They don't jump real high, so stacking them to reach high places and make long jumps is a common task.

Other puzzles include getting the monsters to heart blocks colored like them to bonk and release their heart, and making platforms by collecting specific hearts that are not distinguished from the others in any way. Each monster can also turn into a special form by stacking everyone on a special block. The brown one turns into an elk-thing that can double-jump, and the gray one turns into a bat-thing that can see and step on hidden platforms. But the orange one turns into this cloud-thing that can rotate the level pieces to realign them. What's more, if he jumps before doing it, he stays stationary while the level rotates, effectively allowing him to teleport around. This is obviously the coolest gimmick in the game, but the level design turns it frustrating fast. Levels that center on his power often have you performing complex shifting combos to get him into isolated pieces, and if you rotate him into a wall, he dies.

There are 30 levels that get pretty hard pretty fast. To beat a level you just have to get all three dudes to the exit; the hearts are just for completionists. However, dying subtracts from your heart total, so to 100% a level you have to find all the hearts without dying. I couldn't be arsed to get more than halfway through the game, and that only took 45 minutes. It's cute and has some unique ideas, but is just too irritating to get all the way through.

A super relaxed and charming abstract puzzler. Short enough (~2 hours) to not overstay its welcome.

This will be my number 1 cutest platformer game I have ever played. I know it's for little kids, theoretically, but honestly I've squeaked at it more than little kids have.
It also has achievements, for those who chase doing perfect games. They're not hard to attain, which is also great about the game.
