Pinstripe is an amazing platformer where a minister named Ted tries to find his kidnapped daughter in a frozen Hell. Even this premise is very intriguing, but what caught my attention a couple of years ago when I first saw the Kickstarter for this game is that it was all in all a one-man job. I was amazed by the visuals and could not believe one person could pull this game off. Regardless, I wanted to support that effort, and got rewarded when I received my Steam code back in April.
It was everything I expected it to be.
The visuals were gorgeous and the story was captivating. I just kept playing and finished it in a matter of days. I don’t want to spoil anything, but the finale of the game made me cry. I just want to say that much.
So, if you’re interested, definitely give it a try. One downside of the game is that it is definitely a short game, due to being a one-man effort, but you definitely get more than what you paid for. Below is the link. If you do play, let me know what you think in the comments!
If you got stuck on Level 4 on Yuri like I did, fret no more! It is highly likely that you couldn’t figure out how to climb the spider-web stairs (you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about once you get there). The first stairs break right in the middle, which is easy to discover. Second stairs is not so easy to figure out though. So here is your mini-walkthrough: they break at the very left, above the spider guarding it. It’s a bit tricky to jump over that spider and break the web, but once you know it is there, it shouldn’t take too much of your time.
Hope this mini walkthrough helped you!
Yuri is a great platformer by Fingerlab on iOS (and Mac). You play as a tiny cosmonaut (Yuri) wandering through a strange place crowded with bugs and other flora and fauna on your bed-skate, collecting fireflies.
The controls are very simple, there are only three buttons on the screen: left, right and up. The physics engine is hyper-realistic which can be challenging sometimes but not impossible, hence making the game enjoyable.
It seems like there are 10 levels so far, but more might be coming according to the “coming soon” sign at the main screen. Still, the current 10 levels are packed and should provide enough fun for quite a while. I have been playing it in the past few weeks and made it to the 6th level so far.

Hope you enjoy it!
