[prMac.com] Radovljica, Slovenia - Jugilus today is pleased to announce the release of Little Space Duo for Mac. In this puzzle-based arcade game, the player guides an unusual pair of heroes - a little girl and a small robot - on their way through a huge spaceship. What's the worst that can happen when a spaceship's systems go haywire? Lucy knows all too well! She's been abducted accidentally by a strange vessel, whose control systems have been damaged by a cosmic ray.
Considered by the ship to be nothing more than a piece of cargo, she has been taken away into space. Luckily, she's not alone - a small, clever data robot is there to help her out. Together they will embark on a mission to fix the computer and save the day. It wont be easy, though; they have a long way to travel and the corridors of the spaceship are patrolled by various cargo robots which will try to catch them and put them in storage. The little duo will need to work together, help each other out, and utilize all their cunning to outsmart the cargo robots.
Little Space Duo provides two gameplay modes. Most of game consists of a side-scrolling arcade platformer, in which the player controls Lucy and Sunny. Lucy can run and perform some tasks, like operating lifts and manipulating some devices. Sunny, meanwhile, can fly and can access some hard to reach areas, but he lacks hands, and thus cannot do some of the things Lucy can. He can also help Lucy by carrying her safely down from high places.
Traveling through the corridors of the ship, the little duo will encounter various patrolling robots, which will try to catch them. The different robots have varying abilities, which the player must pay attention to, in order to help the protagonists avoid capture. Most of the robots are able to catch Lucy, while Sunny has less to worry about, as there are fewer that can catch him. The player must be clever in managing the two heroes' abilities and vulnerabilities in order to help them on their quest.
The second mode is a top-down arcade game in which the player controls a vehicle carrying Lucy and Sunny. The vehicle travels through the larger cargo halls of the ship, which contain many patrolling robotic vehicles. The puzzle elements in this portion of the game involve not only avoiding these robotic vehicles, but manipulating them in order to advance.
Little Space Duo offers a tight and accessible game-play with 40 meticulously crafted levels and 2 gameplay modes.
