Floaty Robot: Little Space Duo Demo

This is the only way to travel.

IndieGames spots an intriguing puzzle game called Little Space Duo. It’s a cutesy puzzle platformer, in which a mistakenly imprisoned Earth child helps a small floaty robot to fix the alien ship that errantly kidnapped her. However, the child-friendly look of the design does not belie the tricksiness within. It’s fairly traditional in its idea: two characters, each with defined abilities, having to work together and independently to escape each level. However, within these walls it’s smart and interesting, and surprisingly tough.

It’s created by someone/some people called Jugilus (their website gives little away), who explain the motivation is to take classic ideas and present them in a modern way.

It seems to work pretty well, if looking slightly too smooth and flat. (Also, the girl, while well animated, looks like one of the creepy no-soul children that would appear on the covers of books my little sister would read – books about having a pet horse, and maybe going on holiday.) The only real criticism I have of what’s on offer in the demo is the waterfall of tutorial pop-ups that attack you incessantly for the first two screens. I might have figured out the yellow switch/yellow door thing for myself.

Have a look at the demo here, before deciding if you want to spend an extremely reasonable £6.84 on the full 40 level game.
