iOS platformer Yuri is a cross between Limbo and Where the Wild Things Are

iOS platformer Yuri is a cross between Limbo and Where the Wild Things Are

Yuri is a cross between Mario and Limbo, but with a liberal sprinkling of Tintin and a generous dash of Where the Wild Things Are.

In fact, the game’s influences go back even farther than that. Yuri, the brainchild of multimedia artists the Potier brothers, is named after Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, the first person to visit outer space.

Except instead of sending you into outer space the game sees you exploring what we strongly suspect is the inside of Yuri’s head during a dream.

Yuri travels through this fantastical landscape on a handily mobile bed, swinging on vines, diving in lakes, and riding on the backs of giant creepy crawlies.

In terms of gameplay, Yuri is everything you’d expect from a classic platformer, with controls that lean towards the floatier end of the spectrum. To make it across all ten massive levels you’ll need a steady hand and quick reflexes.

But the thing that really stands out about Yuri is its art style. The character of Yuri has been around since 2005, appearing in animated films and then comic strips before finally making the leap (sorry) to videogames.

Yuri is a clearly a labour of love for Ange and Aurélien Potier, the brothers who created Yuri all those years ago and have now given life to him as an interactive character.

If you have an iOS device, a Mac, or Apple TV you can download Yuri now for $2.99, with no in-app purchases.

Download on iOS and Apple TV now [download] or the Mac Store [download]. You can also check out the game's trailer here.
