This game was reviewed using a code sent by the developer.

Leo’s Fortune is a puzzle platforming game developed by 1337 and Senri LLC. The Swedish made game was originally developed for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and the Amazon App store in early 2014. It got later ported to Steam and PS4 in September 2015.

Gameplay in Leo’s Fortune is sublime. I am not normally a fan of the puzzle platforming type but the slick movement and clever way the puzzles are put together, makes play absolutely wonderfully. Leo is a cute little ball of fluffiness – you are able to squelch yourself to a smaller size, or puff yourself up which also in turn makes you jump and float. A lot of the game play uses a lot of momentum type physics meaning some of the maps you can be doing at quite a quick pace. The puzzles in Leo’s Fortune aren’t so difficult that you aren’t able to figure them out within a few seconds; the game doesn’t present many obstacles which prevent you from completing the level; it’s the Star rating system which offers the most complexity in the game – you are rewarded with 1 star for completing a level, 2 stars for not dying on the level, and 3 stars for completing the level in under 4 minutes (usually). Each set of four levels require you to have 5 stars in total to move onto the next block. It works as a sort of gating system, meaning you may have to replay previous levels in order to move on.

Leo’s Fortune has some really gorgeous looking graphics; although the game is only 2D, the world in which you are playing in is so amazingly rendered it is hard to believe that this is actually a mobile game at its core. The animation of Leo is perfect, the way you are able to move him about in all sorts of different shapes and sizes is just a testament to how good the animation really is in this game. Whilst the game doesn’t have that much audio, Leo does have an interesting voice actor, you’ll get odd snippets of dialogue from him at times, he sounds a bit like a Muppet, and it is hilarious. He doesn’t say much but you really learn a lot about the character just from the small bits.

The game has varying levels of difficulty like I said above with the star rating system; similar to h ow it’s done in games like Angry Birds. But the game also offers an extra level of difficulty in the regular “normal and hard” mode difficulty levels. Only the hard core platforming players should really play the hard mode, as I had plenty of issues progressing on the higher stages with higher star ratings on the normal mode.

Sadly Leo’s Fortune is a very short game; I completed all 5 stages in just over one hour; granted I only just scrapped by on the Star requirements to progress on the stages, but even then, one hour is very short for a game nowadays. You can get a little extra time out of the game if you replay previous levels for a higher star rating, or ramping up the overall difficulty; but personally you are just rehashing old content so one play through is really enough for me.

The game needs to be played with a 360 controller; I couldn’t get the game to work with a keyboard. I also couldn’t get the game to work with the Steam controller too. Small note for people wanting to use Fraps video capturing – it doesn’t work on this game either sadly.

The only downside to Leo’s Fortune is the shortness of the game; the rest of the game is stellar. The price for this game on iOS is £3, 99; compared to the Steam price of £5, 59. If you are really into the puzzle platforming games, you probably should check this game out for the regular price as I can guarantee you will get plenty of enjoyment out of it and you will find yourself wanting to complete the levels with three stars each time. If you are wanting a more casual experience out of the game; then wait for it to go on sale. Personally I am going to only recommend it when it is on sale, purely because of the short play time.

Tom's Score Card
1) Stay away
2) Not Recommended
3) Only recommended when on sale
4) Recommended
5) Highly recommended
6) This is a must play

Leo's Fortune is one of the best games of this type out there, I haven't played anything like it. The mechanics are great, the graphic are even better! I can't really say anything negative about this game. The game gets harder and harder and cooler and cooler, what more can you ask for?
I was supposed to go out with my friends this evening, instead I found this. I regret nothing.

After every track you can get 3/3 stars, this is based on your performance. + Bonus tracks with awesome games.
1. star; If you collect all coins.
2. star; If you don't die through out the entire track.
3. star; Based on your time. Your time will also show up on a leaderboard, so you can compete with friends and people from all over the world.


I rate this game 8.7/10.

Leo's Fortune is a HD remake of the popular mobile game with the same name. You play as a lovable ball of fluff, and journey through the world following a trail of your stolen gold in order to reclaim it. It has a cute little backstory and good level design. Let's take a more in-depth look!

The Pros:
  • Great Visuals! - The game looks great, and Leo's fur looks very detailed. The environment is very detailed and has nice lighting.
  • Lovable Protagonist - I really like Leo's Kuriboh-like physique, huge mustache an deep, thick accented voice and his few remarks across the game.
  • Good Gameplay - People will argue this game is easy and... it is. But the idea is that it is easy to play but hard to master. Like every mobile game in the history of ever, you get a maximum of three stars for each level: Completing it, completing it without dying and completing it fast. Sometimes, the latter two are not that easy to accomplish, and will require several takes. But once you get the hang of it, it will become easier.
  • Adaptive Level Design - While the level elements are quite limited, and some tricks will seem repeated a lot, the chapters put quite a unique fingerprint on them. Some levels focus on dodging spikes, others on solving puzzles, other on deduction and quick reflexes. The changing theme of the chapters also brings a breath of fresh air to the game.
  • Achievements and Leaderboards - Each level has its leaderboard, so you can see who completed the level and how fast. Achievements are also prezent, and most of them regard completing all the levels with three stars.

The Cons:
  • Short - You have five chapters of four levels each, with another four bonus unlockable levels, bringing the total of 24 levels. Not that bad considering adding more would just make them seem more repetitive and seeing how this is a mobile port, but for the 7 Euros asked from PC gamers, I would have liked to have more content.
  • The Music - I'm not saying the music track is bad, I'm just saying there's only one... (counting out the bonus levels). I would have liked to see environment specific music rather than generic background music.
  • NOT Alt+Tab Friendly - Don't tab out of your game in critical moments, for you risk losing your progress. When you tab back in, 2/5 times the game just crashed for me. Not sure if it is a problem for everyone, but I thought I'd mention it. However, no in-game crashes. Works well other than that.

The game is funny, and will certainly entertain children too. It's not that hard, and pleasurable to get into. If you see enough potential in this game to account for it's price, go for it. I would hold my wallet until I see it on sale, though.

Pros: the graphics are gorgeous, pretty simplistic and minimalistic , level design is fairly interesting , it starts very simple and gets more and more complex every level ! the game looks stunning visually.
Cons: not much really , I would be happier if there was a better menu for the PC owners , it looks alot like an Iphone port , specially the menu part. Also the controls are some times not realiable .. But overall , its a good game and its worth the money.

Leo's Fortune tells the story of one mustaches mans journey to find his stolen gold. Scrooge McDuck levels of gold. Traveling through 5 worlds and 20 odd levels Leo faces many obstacles along the way.
Core of the game is focused on physics based platforming and for the most part it works quite well, for those moments it doesn't the game employs a passive checkpoint system which cuts down on restarts and frustrating deaths. Relatively short lived but the 2.5d-like artwork and accompanying soundtrack is just magic. Completing the game unlocks hardcore mode(1-death run) and levels contained a small number of collectibles that gave access to bonus areas so there was some reason to return. Don't hesitate to grab this one on sale if full price looks too high.

Leo's Fortune is one of my absolute favorite platformers. I had the pleasure of playing this game on the Amazon Fire Android TV with a wireless controller and fell in love with it instantly. Now, that I've duplicated a lot of my gaming collection on Steam, I'm getting to experience games like this one on a different platform. I played the game from beginning to end this evening and enjoyed it just as much as I did the first time, if not moreso.

The scenery, graphics, and level design are really terrific, and the controls are very responsive. The concept behind the game is relatively simple, as a blue ball of fluff named Leo goes on a mission to retrieve his gold. This game is much more platformer and coin collector than puzzle-platformer, and that's precisely why I like it so much.

A well-made platformer is so very rare these days, and those that are well-done are more often than not complex puzzle-platformers or purposely made to be very difficult. Leo's Fortune is not one of those games. This is a game that can be played casually without having to think too terribly much, and as much as I enjoy a cerebral game, there are times when I just want to play a straightforward platformer. This game is exactly that. It can be completed in one sitting, but it also includes challenging yet attainable achievements and hidden collectibles that will appeal to achievement hunters, and 100% completionists.

This is a game for young gamers as much as it is for seasoned gamers. There's nothing that I wouldn't want my children to see, and it's great for gamers who have short attention spans or are prone to rage, because each of the 20 levels is short and a great stopping point. Furthermore, while there are achievements associated with "no game deaths," it's possible to complete the game without needing to be such a precise gamer. You can "die" as often as necessary and simply pick back up near where you left off.

There's replayability here, too, as completing the game will unlock a hardcore mode, and there are 4 additional secret levels within the game to unlock, as well. It's also a safe bet that a second playthrough will be necessary for those who are achievement hunters or completionists.

There's really something for everyone here, but most specifically, I recommend Leo's Fortune very highly for those seeking their first 100% game and anyone looking for a platformer with just enough puzzle-solving to be fun and not so much that it feels like, "Work."

Wow! I have been playing video games for almost 40 years (since PONG). I love 'left to right' 'platformers' with 'leaderboards' the most. This is one of the best I have ever played. The level design is absolutely incredible. There are shortcuts to be found on every level. And I love that there are different objectives. And the graphics are really something else. If you just stop and look, you'll be amazed. To round it off, with leaderboard support, this game has plenty of replay value. Well done!

Exposition, Concurrence and Summation
Leo's Fortune places you in control of the most adorable fuzzy ball with a mustache ever.

This is a simple, casual but enjoyable physics based puzzle plat-former with gorgeous whimsical art styling that makes a turn to be rather menacing looking near the end. Almost like a proper Pixar movie.

Leo is an inflatable ball, that when inflated can slow his descent. Which brings me into the actual plat-forming bit; You are a ball, the action of jumping is caused by rapidly inflating. So the physics here are not always the most accurate. You might think of Sackboy with his soft mushy feel. Leo is also kind of sticky, with some momentum he'll pretty much stick to anything not perpendicular to the ground. Additionally for no particular reason he is also able to rapidly descend, which comes in handy for traversal and puzzle solving alike.

None of the levels are all that challenging; there aren't that many stages. I finished them all in about 2 hours. You can unlock bonus levels by getting higher scores (collecting things in the level or completing with low fatality rate.) But to be honest, they aren't that interesting. After completing the game you unlock 'hardcore' mode which does not allow retries.

All in all, an enjoyable very cutesy filler game/palate cleanser between more substantial titles.

Fun little platformer. Good use of physics. Cute loveable mustached blob. The story sucks, and the game is super short being around 2 hrs or so. The sliding and blowing up and becoming heavy are cool ideas but sometimes they aren't consistent and don't work like they should. Also more abilities or other things would have been nice. It still does its job well.

I absolutely love the physics in this game. Speedrunning levels is a blast with a controller. You can go extremely fast; constant-movement-routing is possible on almost every level, and momentum keeps increasing if you route correctly. Huge plus for that aspect, I had more fun going quick than with most Sonic games. I did not expect that level speed-friendliness and hardcore appeal in this game.

The gameplay is the biggest strength here, along with the rather charming graphics that look very nice stylistically and in their relative level of complexity. Recommended just on those two positives alone.

If you care about minor negatives, read on, but seriously, the game is very fun to play speedily.

I experienced a glitch once or twice which usually resulted in death (never got stuck).

UI has a bit of jank to it, with its photoshop-bevel-and-emboss appearance and it's slight wait between menu selections for movement of menu items to pop up. (You're going to be restarting the level A LOT to get the no-death achievements, having to wait for the menu animations to happen every time you restart a level is an annoyance. A minor annoyance, but still an annoyance.)

The voice acting of the MC was ok, but sounds like it was recorded in low quality compared to everything else in the game. What's up with that?

The never-die-in-an-entire-playthrough achievement is physically impossible for someone to do without playing the game for many more hours than it's worth. Please don't add achievements in which the player needs to achieve speedrunner levels of accuracy. People can make those challenges on their own, and it only frustrates more casual completionist players.

In short, this is an entertaining and enjoyable game. The cheap cost is well worth the entry fee. The game looks great and the controls are very on point for a platformer. It's a game you can pick up and play for 5 minutes or play all the way through(about 3 hours). Puzzles wont leave you completley stumped and its an overall relaxing and fun experience.

THIS GAME SCORES [1 2 *3* 4]

(Would be 4of4 if there was replay-value.)

Very good when discounted, because if you don't care to get the full level score, you'll manage to complete it in less than 3 hours while constantly being faced with mild challenges, so you'll surely be able to complete it. It's definitely worth the play-through but has no replay value (other than the usual "Played this last year, am basically a different person now." effect that applies to everything anyway).

Sounds (e.g. voice acting) and graphics are good.

I'm so glad I finally decided to buy and play this game. It has solid platforming and a very relaxed feel to the game.

- Controls are solid (use controller)
- Art Style is beautiful, for a low cost 2D title is doesnt get much better than this.
- The game has well executed difficulty, it raises as you get further into the game and a nice even pace.
- Okay amount of levels and around a 2HR gameplay, but you can back through to get more of the achievements and better your times. This game is surely worth playing multiple times.
- Many checkpoints, makes game easy to play and not Rage about having to restart a level over
- The puzzle areas are mostly easy to solve, nothing too difficult or puzzling. (yeah, puns are funny)

- I ran into a few glitchy areas where I would sort of get stuck, but nothing too serious.
- Playing with keyboard is not that good, but that can be said about many platformer games.
- It would of been cool if there were a few more levels, game is kind of short.
- I wish I would have known about this game sooner...

There isnt much more to add, it's a quality game that looks and plays well. If you are into platformer games and want something you can finish in one night, then I highly recommend buying this.

Graphics is beautiful and eyecatching and sound design is good too; and the minimalistic and easy platformer gameplay works wonderful on smartphones but on pc it is another story. levels are straight forward and too easy to be fun as a platformer game and there is no puzzle in the game that needs some brain. unfortunately you will never have the motivation to gain all 3 stars of levels because it's a waste of time. Obviously game is designed for casual gamers on smartphones and I'm sure it's wonderful on that platform but not on pc and not for hardcore gamers like me.
Buy on full price at your own risk, because you can complete Leo's Fortune under 2 hours and it has no replay value.
