Product: Help Volty
It's not often that you fall in love with a bug. For every cute cockroach like the one from WALL-E there are a billion creepy crawlies that you wouldn't hesitate to squish under the heel of your shoe.
But Volty - a golden-shelled, bug-eyed beetle with some kind of tiny electrified backpack - is definitely one of the good guys.
He's been trapped inside some cryptic puzzle box, and you've got to help him get through a handful of single-screen rooms. These are essentially simplified 'escape the room'-style adventures, but viewed from a bird's-eye perspective.
Help Volty is a charming, engrossing little puzzle game, but one that comes with a few disappointments and frustrations
