This game is a puzzler that features more than puzzling.
First, the character (named Woop) is so cute that you can only smile when he's happy as you just completed that damn level that took you so long to finish.
With such a great transition, I will add that this game is by no means easy, despite his looks, and completing a level with give you plenty of satisfaction.
To go in more details, there are 3 types of levels :
- Ones which require your brain (often Sokoban-like block pushing, sometimes guiding monsters to a switch ...). These levels are probably the hardest (some of them I have no clue how it could be possible to solve them)
- Ones which require your timing : it is all about going at the right pace, at the right moment (they can be tricky but not actually hard)
- Ones which requires your fingers and nerves : just run from the beginning to the end, without stopping will often work. Trouble is that you can't afford the slightest mistake in the whole level as it is instant death (or forever trapped).
Of course, whatever the kind of level you play, the ultimate goal is to get a good rank among all the players who have succeded before you (and there are good people out there, so it's not easy to get high in the ranks).
What's more ? There is a weekly challenge (ranked as well, of course), and you can create and share your home-made levels (there's an even achievement for that)
Well, to be honest, I have to mention the controls : when trying to play for the ranking, you need as few moves as possible, so you'd like to move in a predetermined path you've selected to be the fastest (or sometimes, the only one). That is pretty hard to do : most of the time, Woop will make one more step before turning, and this step will lead you into ... water ! (or magma, or a monster, plenty of ways to die, yay !).
Well, that's it ! Pack your brains, hone your skills and challenge the ranking !
