Description:

Two parallel universes have collided upon each other in a world full of blocks. It is up to you to get both Duo and his parallel self safely to the finish block at the same time. The faster you finish, the higher your score. However it isn't all that simple! They are both controlled at the same time, so whenever you move one, the other will move in unison and although they live in parallel universes, not everything will appear the same!

Went ahead and snatched this one up. It's pretty good. Has the usual 3 star goal for each level. Complete the levels as quick as possible to get all 3. I have only finished 8 levels and the progression seems pretty good so far. Each level gets a bit more challenging as you go. Not only do you have to control both guys at the same time to reach the goal, but both characters have to reach the goal at the exact same time. This is where the challenge comes in. You unlock different blocks through the game to do different things like jump higher, and have one guy stop while you get the other where you need him. There are other blocks to unlock also that I haven't gotten to yet.

Only issue so far is sometimes I'll touch a button and nothing happens. Maybe if the hitbox for the control areas were a smidge larger it would be better. Not a deal breaker though. Overall I would recommend this anyone who likes platformers and puzzlers. Seems like a good deal for my buck...

Plans for the future

I have to admit, I find the game very interesting, graphics are a tad basic, but it fits well with the games. I enjoyed the puzzle concept a lot, as some of the levels are quite hard.

Do you have plans to release any more environments?
