Avo!

A magical adventure

VIEW

It’s delightful in a salad and incredible on toast, but if you truly want the best avocado experience, try the groundbreaking adventure Avo!.

The story – a caper about baddies trying to steal science whiz Billie’s outlandish inventions – unfolds in short scenes. During each episode, you control Avo, a bipedal avocado who toddles alongside the live-action characters by following the dotted line you draw with your finger. It’s a sight to behold – and a real technical achievement.

Guiding little Avo around the world is easy – and there are glowing red jellybeans to collect along the way.

Mostly this involves getting Avo from point A to B without running into trouble, but the game encourages experimentation. Stray off the path and be rewarded with fun little asides, like having Avo bust a move to the radio or dip himself in shiny gold paint for a fetching new look. You can also tweak Avo’s style by collecting and spending beans. What’s an avocado without a bowler hat and disco glasses?

You can’t help but be charmed by Billie and Avo’s offbeat adventures.

Avo!’s brought to life with great acting and surprisingly smooth tech. It truly looks and feels like our hero is interacting with the real world – and with an optional augmented reality mode, you can warp the friendly fruit right onto your desk.

Remarkably polished and suitable for gamers of all ages, Avo! is a bold (and nutritious) step into a new mixed-reality frontier.
