I and Me – Xbox One Review
I and Me is a new puzzler that was initially released on Steam and Nintendo Switch and now making its Xbox outing published by Ratalaika games, Indie Developer Wish Fang have put together another platform puzzler in a similar vein to a few other games I have tried over the last 12 months.
The basic concept of the game is that you take control of two cats in a level guiding them past the hazards and getting them both spaced out well enough that when you reach the end of the level your two moggies will both be able to sit at their corresponding picture frames.
That’s where the biggest challenge comes in working out how to get them both spaced out enough to close out the level when you get to the end.
The only control you have is to move and jump and you need to use the environment to manipulate your cats to the right positions.
The tempo of the game is fairly relaxed and this is reflected in the music, the subtle graphical style and the even in some cases the difficulty level which you can tell early on isn’t going to be terribly tough.
There are frustrations as you try to work out the best way to get the cats into the right positions and then you’ll bump into a hedgehog or you forget the second cat and when you jump over an enemy the second cat skewers themselves onto some nasty spikes.
There is a hint system if you get stuck which will guide you and spell out the solution for you.
There isn’t a huge challenge here, although there is 90 levels to contend with, the relaxed style of the game allied with the chilled out music and fairly forgiving difficulty level will mean you can spend a little time with this charming puzzle game whenever you feel like a quick pick up an play, the price is fairly reasonable when you look at the game overall but the replayability is pretty low, there is not a lot here to get you to come back once you have finished it.
Overall I’d recommend this if you enjoy platform puzzle games and just want something to pick up and put down when you feel like it, it wont take up too much of your time but also won’t keep you coming back for a long time either.
