The game lets you play as a tiny blue character whose goal is to climb a tower and take the crown. Why are you aiming to climb this really high tower just to receive this crown? Apparently, elders in the land believe that whoever gets it will become the next ruler. Hence, your adventure and trials begin.

It's actually a neat little platformer that almost anybody can enjoy.

Propel was developed by Abscure Games and was actually a remake of an old game they had called "The Fall Game." If you're looking for an interesting puzzler, then give this one a go.

Pushover (remake)

Pushover is a revamped version of an old puzzle game back in the 90s. The main point of the game is that you have to figure out how to arrange the dominoes properly so that you can knock all of them down with just one push. The game is pretty much the same as the older version with several improvements added in the bag, of course. The puzzle pieces start off simple enough, but they do get much more complicated as you progress throughout the game. To add to the pressure, there's a time limit for each level so you have to be on your tippy toes when figuring out how to arrange the yellow pieces. The original game was published by Ocean and the remake was made by Ishisoft. Pretty cool puzzle game. Give it a go!
