** BAFTA-nominated ‘Best New Property’ 2015 **

Jump, slide and fly your way through a beautiful, mind-bending world in this award-winning, puzzle-platforming adventure.

The island of Kalimba has been cast into darkness by an evil shaman. Your totems must journey from the underworld to the heavens in order to restore light to the land. Thankfully, Hoebear the vaguely bear-shaped Metabear will be your spirit guide in this quest. Rebuild the totem pole to bring back the positive vibes to Kalimba.

In Kalimba, you play two coloured totem pole pieces simultaneously – one on the top half, and one on the bottom half of the screen. Avoid dark pits, deadly spikes and roaming enemies, but remember the totems move together. One totem jumps over a hole, the other jumps into spikes; one soars into the sky while the other tumbles into the abyss.

“One of the biggest treats I have had all year…”
9/10 – God is a Geek

“Precise, taxing and faintly adorable, it's the [Xbox]One's secret platforming weapon. Got a sneering Nintendo fan coming over? Show them this thing and their happy, colourful brains will be blown into rainbow chunks."
Games Radar

“Kalimba is a beautiful, cheerful platformer that finds a neat middle ground between reflex-oriented running and taxing puzzle solving.”

I hate platformers, but I love this game. Great visuals, audio, and controls. Very clever game!

Update: Developers, there's a big crash in the third level inside that black triangle where the bear is hanging out (bouncy room). It's crashed the game every single time. Please fix this. I'm on an iPhone 7 with the latest operating system. I wanted to contact you in another way, but it seems Facebook is the only way and I don't and won't have Facebook. I'll return to five stars once crash is fixed.

The most fun platformer game out there!

A delight through and through! Has all the features that you'd want from a great game plus more. And this coming from a huge platform game enthusiast. On top of that I don't think I've ever played a game in Co-op like this. Me and my friend were constantly either laughing or yelling instructions at each other. Fantastic experience. Highly recommended.
