Critically acclaimed platformer Leo’s Fortune now available on Google Play [DOWNLOAD]

Shown off briefly onstage during this year’s Google I/O, Leo’s Fortune is now officially available on Google Play. The game wasn’t technically supposed to arrive until tomorrow, but we wont fault developer “1337 Game Design” for releasing it ahead of schedule. Besides, somewhere in the world it’s already July 10th.

For those not following the mobile gaming scene, Leo’s Fortune is a 2D platforming adventure game that’s been receiving nearly perfect 5/5 reviews since launching on iOS back in April. Yeah, it’s that good. Described by many as one of the most beautiful mobile games to date, you’ll be hard pressed to find another title with such vibrant and crisp visuals. Like the other causal greats of our time, the premise of the Leo’s Fortune is simple: you play as Leopold, a fluffy hairball with a wicked mustache who must track down the mysterious thief who stole his fortune.

But it’s in the gameplay where the game really shines. Not because it offers some crazy leveling system or complicated controls. Players simply slide Leo across 24 fine-tuned levels, following a trail of coins while avoiding traps and solving physics-based puzzles. While the game will cost you a #2 combo at McDonald’s (roughly translates to $5), you’ll be pleased to find neither hide, nor hair, of a single in-app purchase. We like that.

It comes as no surprise that Leo’s Fortune does offer gamepad support (another plus) and just like Google showed off during I/O 2014, should look great playing on Android TV once it officially launches later this year. You’ll find download links just after the trailer below.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. I’ve always wondered why I can’t get into these newer platformers. I play all these mobiles games and I just can’t seem to like them.

    Then I thought about it. I’m actively playing Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I’m just too old school. LoL!!

    1. Old school, 8 & 16 bit platformers had fluidity and speed. Yeah, you had to time jumps, but you had to do it quickly. Mobile platformers go so slow, that tends to be a turnoff.

      1. I want to see something like “Replica Island” created again, like a sequel, but better.

  2. Visually the best looking game I’ve played on an Android platform so far.

  3. I’ve nearly given up on mobile games as a result of IAP. Awesome to see such a great game go without it. It’s entirely worth the $5, brilliant gameplay and visuals. Please keep suggesting IAP-free games! We may be a minority, but I think there’s a ton of folks who just won’t touch the “pay-to-win” or “pay-to-not-wait” garbage that is so popular.

  4. I’d love to check it out, but I don’t game on phone enough to justify a 5 dollar app!
