MSRP: $9.99

Platforms: Win/Mac/Linux

Release: 8/30/12

This is a pretty pretty game.


You play a robot with a camera. It’s half puzzle game, half platformer. Use your camera (left click) to take pictures of items in the world, and use it again (right click) to drop them other places to solve platforming challenges.

Now, I am AWFUL at platformers.  My fingers fumble all over the place and I fall down pits and miss jumps and die. A lot. On the upside, there doesn’t seem to be a limit to the number of deaths you can have, and all the levels I’ve gotten through are super-short. Like, goal time of 10 seconds short.  I haven’t gotten anywhere close to reaching goal times on any level and am trying to satisfy myself without figuring how to get all the stars on a level.


The game is divided into four chapters. Each chapter is further divided into smaller sections – I can see 9 of them in the first chapter when I’m between sections. Each section has three maps. Unless you’re hitting goal times on your first playthrough without any deaths or errors, there’s certainly hours worth of playtime here.  If you’re trying for all the achievements, it’ll extend it even further.

If you like platformers and puzzle games, you should definitely check this out. And if you’re anything like me, you’ll see the dead battery icon a lot.
