Late this afternoon, Eli and I spent some time with Sleepwalker's Journey [$0.99 / Free / Free (HD) / $1.99 (HD)], the latest game from 11 Bit. Sleepwalker's Journey is a 2D side-scrolling puzzle game that tasks you with escorting a sleepwalking kid through obstacle-laden environments. In the early going at least, you'll be moving platforms around the world to give the kid a clear path to use as he shuffles his way mindlessly from left-to-right. It's harder than it sounds, as the puzzle design ramps up really fast. You'll be flicking a lot of gears and changing the kid's direction quite a bit in increasingly confusing levels.

What we've got below is a small taste of the first world. We really just wanted to show off the core mechanics and not embarrass ourselves too much in the process. Sadly, I managed to do so, despite having finished the last level we played before the video. Also, I called the game the wrong name.

    I couldn't get the video to run but it sounds really fun. I wonder if there's any chance the developers will add iCade controls, I really enjoy playing 2d side scrolling games using the iCade a lot.

    I'm guessing the mention of "Universal" in the video was a mistake? Or will it be added to the HD version later?

    Ehh. All this non-Universal stuff is confusing, I'll just buy something else.

    It reminds me of Sleepwalker on the Amiga 1200, although the method of redirecting the sleepwalker is different.
