Leo’s Fortune follows the story of Leo, a small little fur ball with a mustache and what seems like a Russian accent. You are Leo and you are hunting down the animal that decided he was going to steal your fortune. The game starts off with a short narration and overview of the game, the story and its objectives.
“I just returned home to find all my gold has been stolen! For some devious purpose, the thief has dropped pieces of my gold like breadcrumbs through the woods. Despite this pickle of a trap, I am left with no choice but to follow the trail. Whatever lies ahead, I must recover my fortune.” -Leopold
The gameplay is not unlike many other games of this genre. There are puzzles to solve to get Leo through the levels and there is gold to pick up through his adventures. The game controls are pretty straight forward. The left part of the screen controls the forward and backward movement, while the right side of the screen controls the up and down movement and also serves as an inflation method for Leo. Getting a handle on controlling Leo should be your first objective, the learning curve isn’t awful but there are a few things you can do with him using a combination of controls.
What really sets this game apart though are the stunningly beautiful graphics. The attention to detail is amazing and the animation is smooth, lag free and brilliant! I played the game on my iPad Air, I did not try it on the iPhone as I think this is better enjoyed on a larger screen. I’m not much of a gamer, mobile or otherwise, but Leo’s Fortune got me hooked right off the bat. The combination of brilliant graphics and really great storytelling is totally worth the $4.99 price tag.[Best_Wordpress_Gallery gallery_type=”slideshow” theme_id=”1″ gallery_id=”3″ sort_by=”order” order_by=”asc” slideshow_effect=”fade” slideshow_interval=”3″ slideshow_width=”800″ slideshow_height=”500″ enable_slideshow_autoplay=”1″ enable_slideshow_shuffle=”1″ enable_slideshow_ctrl=”1″ enable_slideshow_filmstrip=”1″ slideshow_filmstrip_height=”70″ slideshow_enable_title=”0″ slideshow_title_position=”top-right” slideshow_enable_description=”0″ slideshow_description_position=”bottom-right” enable_slideshow_music=”0″ slideshow_music_url=”0″ watermark_type=”none” watermark_link=”0″]
What’s even better is that it seems you can progress through the game without having to gain any stars. Even if you die 24 times but get through the level, you still go to the next level and next part of the story. Of course it’s always cool to try and get the best score you can get but it’s nice that you don’t have to. That $4.99 price tag also gets you zero advertising and no in app purchases, that I have seen anyway. Leo’s Fortune has given me a reason to play games on my iPad again. This is a solid 5 star game, don’t let the $4.99 price tag scare you, everything about this game is worth that. Hit the app store link below to pick it up on the Apple app store.
