Done the tutorial and the first two levels (both of which were pretty easy). Heavy Eastern European animation flavor to this one; the art is creepy (in a good way) and the music is very atmospheric. Animation is smooth and the controls are easy to use. Basically, it's a combination platformer and slide puzzle, where you guide your hapless monster/worker across states filled with obstacles and homicidal bunnies. You can move left and right (as you would expect) and also slide whole vertical sections of the level up and down to open a your path, trap the aforementioned homicidal bunnies, etc.

A couple of annoyances:

* The game uses save points, so it's possible to lose a fair amount of progress if you have to take a phone call.

* The opening movie is nice, but there's no way to skip it -- it would be great if you could just double tap to turn it off.

So far, the game feels like a well-polished original take on the platform genre.

Sounds good so far.

This is why I'm particularly attracted to the game. If there's nothing too deal breaking I'll be getting this, as I like the art style too much.

Thanks for the impressions SZ.

Let me add some extra infos on Kovoclak:

the game features 50 stages in 4 areas ( factory, underground, oil rig and radiations zones ), ingame languages are English and French.
Kovoclak has been developed over the last 6 months by Mouky (original concept and coding) and Lingouf (graphics and music).







Mouky from caou.org

Thanks for such a beautiful, intriguing game caou. I do have one request: it would be great to be able to skip the tutorial -- I've had to start over a couple time due to "circumstances" (i.e. my 3 year old son), and it's kind of annoying to have to redo the whole tutorial every time.

There's a level selection screen, so my guess is, yes, you can.

Can't remember I've coded such a thing!!!

No you can't replay a stage you've already completed, this is to prevent players from playing again and again the easyest stages until they get 99 lives!
That would just kill the challenge...
