Do you like cute things? How about real cutesy music, do you like that too?? Do you also happen to like solving puzzles? If you answered 'yes' to any of those questions, then you will absolutely LOVE ilomilo!

There are 49 levels to complete. I will be the first to admit that I've been dawdling on the single-player mode and have been playing the game with tsudoku pretty much every night for about an hour. Each level can take some time and requires a different kind of patience than the one I required when playing LIMBO, but that's really like comparing apples to oranges.
What really sold me on the game is that once you start playing, you can't stop. You really don't want these little guys to keep getting lost - that's also sad! Plus you feel all warm and fuzzy once you reunite these cute BFFs. The really adorable soundtrack doesn't hurt either :) You'll also get to meet some colorful characters, like the Frenchie looking Napoleon Bonaparte-esque dude named Sebastian. Don't worry, Sebastian's cool; he's there to dole out advice all while flying on his winged stallion that happens to look like a fat ladybug. Other perks include collecting "memory fragments" for a separate subplot of the ilo and milo story, collecting records to expand your music gallery, and concept sketches of the game's characters and settings.
