Platformers is a genre that has had its fair share of engaging and varied releases on mobile, from Leo’s Fortune to ports such as Inside. Ayo: A Rain Tale is another entry to comsider, bringing a narrative-driven design and a unique cultural perpsective to iOS and Android. 

As the titular Ayo, you must endure a daily journey through the harsh landscapes of sub-saharan Africa to bring clean water back to your village, a journey that pits Ayo against increasingly deadly hazards as the game progresses. From sandstorms to dangerous wildlife, your path is fraught with peril, and puzzle platforming challenges.

Sun and sand may be early threats, but soon stages become complicated, taking you through caverns filled with boulders and thorny pits, to treetop canopies where lightning strikes threaten to send you plummeting. Ayo: A Rain Tale combines these puzzles and traversal to shine a light on the real-life harships that inspired the game’s mystical journey. 

Ayo: A Rain Tale‘s puzzles, platforming, and harsh tale are available for $2.99 on the App Store and Google Play.
