When The Corporation causes all the suns to go out, a small boy named Inco and his strange friend, Helios, go on a galaxy-spanning quest to light the skies once more.
As they explore the planets they discover Grapples, Jetpacks, Teleports, Gravity Beams and other strange machines.
With its atmospheric ambient soundtrack and striking visuals, Incoboto is a moody, challenging, adventure-puzzler in the spirit of Portal and Ico.

I love this game. The humour, artwork, puzzles and general idea are great. It's even better when you know that it's just made by one man who (somehow) has made a game on par with the ones coming out of professional studios. I'd argue that it's actually better than most of them because of its charm and the little details that make it so captivating.
I'd highly recommend!
This is a really gorgeous game. Very cute, slightly bleak but ultimately optimistic. It's great to find a game where you feel some kind of emotional connection.
The only problems are:
I would have liked an end of game boss
The remaining few stars are too easy to collect (not sure of a way around that though)
The special bonus item is great but the game is basically over before you can put it to use.
These things don't detract from the five stars though because overall I'm extremely glad that challenging and beautiful games like this are being made.
Fun, stylish, challenging
This remains one of my favourite iPad games months after I completed it - it is original, just the right amount of challenging and I wish there were more games of this quality on the App Store
