Have you played the ilomilo game yet ?. Some of you have, some of you are still waiting to play it on XBLA.
What is ilomilo?. ilomilo is a puzzle game developed by Microsoft Game Studios and SouthEnd Interactive. It was released on Windows Phone 7 on November 8, 2010 for AT&T customers.Although the Xbox Live Arcade version does not yet have a release date, I played the demo yesterday via a secret website. The goal of the game is to complete each of the 49 levels and unite Ilo and Milo, who are on separate sides of the level and must work together to meet. Players can change control between Ilo and Milo, or two players can control them simultaneously. Levels are made up of various cubes, some of which Ilo or Milo can pick up and carry in order to place elsewhere in the level, opening a path for the other to travel on. Different cubes have different effects, such as some which extend across gaps or some that allow Ilo or Milo to fall through and end up on the other side. There are also carpets which allow characters to walk on different sides of the cubes and switches which activate bridges. Hidden throughout the levels are various fragments, which when collected piece together postcard memories, explaining some of the game’s backstory. There also small creatures called Safkas hidden in each level, which unlock bonuses when collected.
The ilomilo team have posted some rather cool merchandise they maybe working on, which are these prototype ilomilo thermos mugs. Aren’t they adorable?. Fingers crossed they make some more merchandise as they are ultra cute. Looks like the team have been LEGO building too.
