The authors of Yazzie described this game as being “lovely ported” from ZX Spectrum to Mega Drive and Sega Genesis, and even though that’s clearly a “lost in translation” error from Russian to English, I find it charming so I decided to include it in the title. “Charming” is also a good word to describe this puzzle platforming game; originally coded in six days for a game jam but being good enough to merit a port to (pun intended) other platforms.
If you’re familiar with Montezuma’s Revenge or Lode Runner you will enjoy the level design and the creative ways you must solve each screen to progress to the next. I’m not sure there’s enough depth to warrant the $50 a physical copy CIB commands, but there was definitely TLC put into the tile based graphics, the bouncing animations, and the overall inoffensive sound design and background music.
