Tiny Treasure

In Alberto A. Braga's puzzle platformer Tiny Treasure, teamwork makes the dream work, especially when you're two little heroes who the world literally changes around. By using the [spacebar] to swap between each character, who are controlled identically with [WASD] or the [arrow] keys, certain parts of the landscape, specifically the coloured blocks that match whatever character you're controlling, will turn solid and allow you to walk on or climb them, while those corresponding to the other character are intangible. To get around, they'll need to work together, even standing on each other's shoulders to reach high places. It's a simple concept that's executed well here, if not necessarily with a significant amount of variety. Playing leapfrog/piggybacking makes up the bulk of the gameplay, and your progress is not saved, so even though the game is on the short side, you'll still need to finish it in one sitting. The latter half is actually a clever twist, if more stressful than the initial happy-go-lucky gameplay because you're working under a timer and need to re-think what are essentially double-sided puzzles in some places. The end result is a cute game that will quite literally fit into a coffee break, and while friendship might be magic, apparently it's also someone who's willing to let you stand on their head.

Cute and short. The timer in the second half is extremely forgiving, which is nice. I had time to get all the way to the start and then return to the end to pick up some coins I'd missed.
