Mr Splibox 2
In Eyesteam's funky puzzle platformer Mr Splibox 2, as in the original, the titular hero's friends have been abducted by the wily Smoking Astronaut (naturally), and it's up to you to help get them back. Move with the [WASD] or the [arrow] keys and try to make it safely to the exit in each stage. Instead of jumping, you spawn cheerful little boxes beneath you by pressing the up key, and reabsorb them by pressing the up key... the number of boxes you can spawn is indicated by dots in the bottom right corner. These perky pals will stack beneath you and allow Mr Spilbox to reach higher places, and can also be used to help him cross gaps by tipping over the abyss and dropping him on the other side. Be careful, as they don't last forever, and will vanish after a few seconds whether you've moved or not. Don't worry if any little boxes fall, they just get added to the number you can spawn again. Just make sure to avoid or outwit enemies, since a single hit and you're toast! Mr Splibox 2 is more of a buff and shine job of the original than a drastic change, though the physics feel a lot less wobbly and more reliably controllable, and the whole thing just looks a wee bit more polished. The game is a little harder earlier on, though most elements will be familiar to those who played the original even if they look different. It's fun, cute, and with a retro-tastic soundtrack, you can't go wrong.
