We saw a lot of cool things at Google I/O 2014, not the least of which was a 2D platforming adventure game called Leo’s Fortune from a development house with an incredibly cool name (l337 Game Design, pronounced ‘leet’ for those of you slightly less nerdy than me).
The star of the game is a fluffy hairball (with a wicked-cool mustache) named Leopold –and you get to slide him across 24 different levels on a quest to track down the thief who made off with his fortune. It’s a simple premise, which is all part of the game’s charm; it isn’t hard to learn, the controls are easy to master and it doesn’t involve much strategy, leveling, or begging your friends for lives and goodies. Sound boring? See you in a few hours after you’re completely addicted to playing this one.
For those keeping a lookout, Leo’s Fortune does also offer gamepad support.
Leo’s Fortune can be downloaded now for $4.99 (with no sign of any in-app purchases, making the steep price-tag much easier to swallow).
