Kalimba is the latest game from Press Play, the creative heads behind Max: The Curse of Brotherhood. It is now available for download from Xbox Store. Kalimba is a mind-bending and playful puzzle-platformer. Choose between single-player and local two-player, where cooperation is key. The island of Kalimba has been cast into darkness. Jump, slide, and fly your way from the underworld to the heavens in order to restore light in the land.
Each player commands a pair of animated totems in order to craft clever ways to overcome hazards—both environmental and villainous. Discovering how to use the variety of powers and attributes in conjunction with one another is crucial to the player’s survival.
The synchronicity of gameplay isn’t Kalimba’s only unique feature—original art design along with the trixelated art style provides each character and setting a memorable look and identity to balance their unique twists. Kalimba adds another twist to the traditional leaderboard concept: As they progress, players scale a totem pole that evolves in an increasingly ornate manner based on scores for each stage, and results in creating a living embodiment of a leaderboard.
