Hands-on with Ocmo, the hardcore platformer that AAAAAAARGH ALIEN SPIDER THINGIES!

If there's one thing that freaks me out almost as much as zombies, it's spiders.

So when I was shown the creepy and crawly Ocmo, I took an immediate (and totally unfair) dislike to its star: a weird hybrid of spider, shadow, and alien.

But after a while, Ocmo won me over. I think it was its innocent little eyes that, if you squint, form a grin as large as its fragile body can muster.

The game is rock hard, mostly because moving through the environments is a tricky skill that you'll have to learn and master to finish the tougher levels.

Your limbs are stretchy and can attach to the environment, but your only forward movement comes from a small jump, and your own inertia as you swing through dark and dangerous levels.

Only fans of Super Meat Boy levels of punishing platforming need apply then. Click play below to see why...
