GLOBAL – It’s Saturday, which means there’s no work for a couple of days. This might also mean you’ve got time to enjoy some gaming action on your Nokia Lumia 710 or Nokia Lumia 800. Ilomilo is a 3D puzzle game built from cubes and where two friends named ilo and milo must be reunited. Are you up for the challenge?
ilomilo £3.99 ($4.99)
Ilo and Milo are two friends who, for some reason, keep getting separated and end up on different sides of the park. You must control Ilo and Milo individually and navigate them through a path covered with shiny items – you must collect these, by the way – until they meet in a warm embrace. Together again, forever. Well, until the next level, anyway.
The controls are simple. There’s the four arrow keys on the left of the screen that are used to navigate the friendly-duo, and on the bottom right-hand side of the screen is the switch button. This will switch your character from Ilo to Milo and back again whenever you need.
There are little tricks you must perform along the way that you’ll need to perform in order to complete the level. Moving special cubes to fill empty holes helps you bridge any gaps that appear, and keep your eye out for red carpets that drape over the sides. These make it possible for you to walk off one side of the cubes and on to one of the other five sides.
As with any Xbox Live title, the achievements you make throughout the game will be added to your Xbox Live gamer profile for some competitive fun with your friends.
