ArtbegottiDuoTaskingDuoTasking feels like it should play like a standard platformer. You play as a robot running around a big-pixel environment, trying to collect all the coins and avoid anything that is red. You move around and jump using the [arrow] keys (or [WASD]). You also control a snazzy laser, which you can fire using [spacebar] or [control] to eliminate obstacles and enemies. However, not only do the same controls that move the robot also move the laser, but while your robot moves horizontally, your laser moves vertically! It's this little puzzling twist that makes DigiCroc's DuoTasking a tricky platforming challenge to wrap your mind around.

As you move your robot from left to right, your laser will move from top to bottom. Both the robot and laser are vulnerable to damage from touching enemies, being shot by enemies, or touching red blocks. It's even possible to shoot the robot with the laser if you're not paying attention to what you're doing. As you start each level, you can usually figure out the order that things need to be done in, as often it will be impossible to move one of your two figures past a certain barrier without removing it with the other. Performing your plan is a lot harder though, since you often have to time your movements against periodically-firing enemy projectiles that always seem to be in line with your laser when you think you've found a good spot for your robot to hide. There are 12 levels to tackle (not counting the "hard" mode, which is the same levels with more enemies to dodge), but the surprising level of difficulty from trying to wrangle two objects at once means you could be DuoTasking for a while.

I have a love for puzzles and a love for platformers. It's in that statement that DuoTasking takes these wonderful mechanics and forces you to do some heavy lateral thinking. While it's simplistic in retro appearance, the game's mind bending innovation makes up for anything that could be considered a "short coming."

There's a lot of puzzles games I often get bored with half way through but with this, I thoroughly enjoyed the brain cramp of multitasking.

This is a must play for any puzzle lover.
