Tobe's Vertical Adventure
Tobe's Vertical Adventure!
How do you say that, anyway? "Tobe"? I feel like they misspelled "Toby" at some point and just never got around to fixing it. Or maybe it's, like, a foreign name, and it's actually totally normal?
Anyway, it's a platformer. You play as some kid named Tobe. (Tobe? Really? Ugh!) Tobe can run and jump and roll and wall-jump and all that good stuff, and there's these levels with treasure to collect and cute little animals to rescue. And of course at the end of the level, it self-destructs arbitrarily and you need to backtrack to the beginning.
Tobe has some special moves, like floating with balloons:
Or tossing climbable ropes up to the ceiling:
Hehe, yeah, I had some fun with animated .gifs for this one.
So what bundle did I get this from, anyway? I don't even remember. It's not bad. I mean, it's not amazing, but it's not bad.
There's also a co-op mode so you can play with a friend. This lets you do stuff like bounce off one another's heads to jump higher or grab onto one another's feet to climb onto ledges. But since I am a poor lonely soul with no co-op buddies (foreveralone.jpg), it looks like that's not on the books.
So. Tobe's Vertical Adventure. Could be worse.
