If you're into cutesy platformers then The Big Journey might be right up your street. Better yet, it's coming to iOS next week.
The Big Journey lets you control a rather plump-looking kitty, Mr. Whiskers, as he rolls across various platformer landscapes, eating up whatever he can. This 2D physics-based side-scroller is bright and striking because of its minimalism.
If any of you have played Leo's Fortune you might get similar vibes as you're controlling a ball-like object through a maze-like area. The difference here being that rather than collecting gold, you're collecting food and bugs, and Mr. Whiskers is constantly spinning as he moves. Poor kitty.
On mobile, however, you control your kitty-cat by tilting the screen, and can tap to jump over obstacles and the occasional foe. Whether I've just got a soft heart or not, I can't help but smile throughout the trailer and admire even the smallest details so far.
There's very little time to wait as The Big Journey is slated to launch next Thursday, March 16th, on iOS, and Android following soon.
