Inklings channels those classic Lemmings vibes and douses them in beautiful hand drawn and painted environments. It’s a puzzler where you use your ingenuity to guide the otherwise hapless Inklings into the goal with an array of abilities and items including climbing, digging, a portal gun, and a tool for flipping gravity.
Each level resembles a piece of art including Monet’s Water Lilies and Kandinsky’s Several Circles. Not every level is based on a masterpiece. Some are themed on children’s art and homemade paintings too. Drag and drop terrain and draw on the canvases to change the world and guide the Inklings to the goal.
Inklings is developed by Applepine Games, two brothers from Seattle. Inklings is available now on PC, Mac and iOS. If you are a fan of puzzles or an art buff, Inklings might just scratch that itch.
