Week in Arcade: ilomilo

One game this week, knocking only $10 out of your pocket.

Some may have already downloaded this one prior to its “official” release thanks to the devs allowing it to be accessed early via their site, but now the world has a shot at it. This is an adorable puzzle game, accentuated by its laid back, lower-cased title. The goal is to reunite these cute critters across a multi-dimensional board, flipping around and working together to clear gaps. The music is catchy, the visuals are superb, and the pacing is your own. It’s casual, it’s hardcore, and it marks a great start to XBLA for 2011.
