The delightfully handcrafted Leo's Fortune was one of 2014's most critically acclaimed mobile games. Will it be one of 2015's most acclaimed console and PC games?
It's unlikely, do to the differences between the two audiences, but that doesn't mean the quest for Leopold's stolen gold is anything less than stellar on the bigger screen. Tilting Point has done a wonderful job of translating 1337 and Senri's award-winning physics platformer from mobile to PC, and Leo's moves are as smooth as his mustache and accent.
From the game's mildly fuzzy Steam page:
Leo's Fortune is an award-winning platform adventure game where you hunt down the cunning and mysterious thief that stole your gold. Beautifully hand-crafted levels bring the story of Leo to life in this epic adventure.

The First Five is the first five minutes of a game with light commentary. Once the five minutes are up, so am I.
