A cosmic turbulence caused the 2D Platformer and the Top-Down Puzzler dimensions to merge.

Toodee and Topdee is a unique 2D Platformer and a Top-Down Puzzler hybrid. Meet strange new friends on your quest to find the missing semicolon, and return the balance to the universe. On your way, you'll need to switch between Toodee and Topdee and their unique perspectives, and watch how the game bends to the rules of the current genre. But also... you'll need to defeat huge bosses. Afraid to go alone? You can play with a friend in the local co-op mode. If you're having a hard time, you can modify some of the game rules in the difficulty settings. And don't tell anybody... There are secrets...


Switch between dimensions to complete each level

Toodee and Topdee is an engaging, mind-bending puzzle game that see you having to switch between two different dimensions in order to get your two characters to meet up at the level's portal in order to transport to the next level.

It sounds simple enough, but switching between the two dimensions, both with their own set of rules, makes for a frustrating, yet fun, experience.

Some levels are so simple and others are head scratchingly complex, but it's certainly a an easy little game to pick up and play - and one that will get your mind working as well as being insanely addictive. You can even play in local co-op mode which helps to add to the fun.


A challenging, fun puzzle game

The graphics are simple and bold, but you're not playing this for the aesthetics. It's a game that you'll be drawn back to time and time again because of how challenging it is.

I really enjoyed my time with Toodee and Topdee. It might not be the most polished game out there on the market, but it's certainly one of the most entertaining.
