I Am Level

JohnBI Am Level is a one button arcade platform game from Smiling Bag, available free for Android devices or in your browser. It does away with most control buttons and gives you a rolling character you influence by tilting your mobile device left and right. Tap the screen to activate all of the screen's mechanisms, shooting springboards up, shifting platforms around, or knocking pinball-style flippers in the air. Through a creative combination of luck and skill, it's your job to explore the delightfully unconventional pathways that wind their way in and out of the game's challenging stages.

I Am LevelAs you roll your way through I Am Level you'll collect stars from each screen. Gather them all and you'll complete that particular area, contributing to your overall score and slowly unlocking new costumes you can adorn yourself with. Save your progress, then jump around the map by visiting checkpoints you've reached, all with a few taps of the screen.

I Am Level has a vaguely VVVVVV-ish feel to it. The stages are laid out in a non-linear fashion, allowing you to traverse rooms and complete challenges almost at your leisure. There's a pattern to where you can go and how you can get there, of course, as dictated by the question blocks you remove by reaching certain milestones. But on the whole you feel as if you've got a world of your own to explore, even though it's fairly small.

I Am Level suffers from a sluggish interface on Androids. The game itself plays just fine, but navigating between menus and starting up each round takes far longer than it should. This serves as a slight deterrent to really getting into the game, but it's not so severe that you won't want to sit through it. Once you get going, I Am Level has this wonderful charm that will keep you challenged and intrigued for hours.

After a while, it stopped showing the areas I've visited on the map. It now only shows the areas I've finished. If I unlock a checkpoint without finishing the room, I get the circle indicator on the map over an empty square.

I love this game, played it first time yesterday. Don't understand why the button on the review says "Play Robby" though ;)

Cleared every screen! It started out simple enough, but the screens got progressively harder. I have no idea if I have all costumes, but frankly, I can't be bothered to play through those levels again. Currently somewhere along level 10.

I'm having the same problem as Bill. Game's still fun though.

The game is a lot of fun, but...how do you quit the game? I have to go into the Task Manager to kill it manually.

@Ezra: Yeah, at some point it just stopped doing that. Quite annoying. It's never come back for me either, only the completed rooms.
