And Yet It Moves (WiiWare)

Game Profile

And Yet It Moves is a puzzle-platformer set in a unique world made of ripped paper.

Within the paper-collage you can jump, run and, last but certainly not least, rotate the world. This has clear implications on the game environment: walls become floors, tunnels may suddenly be used as downward slides and a stone resting on the ground may fall, becoming either a dangerous obstacle or useful object for catapulting.

To successfully progress through a level, you must apply the physical consequences of rotating the world to the avatar and to other moving objects, like stones, drops of water and branches, as well as to living things, such as bats, monkeys and much more.

And Yet It Moves is notable for its polished, focused gameplay and unique artistic style. Each object, plant or animal that the player encounters is ripped out of a photo or movie image and brought to life using current realtime rendering techniques. Every level was designed through a meticulous handmade process, including various back- and foreground layers, making it more interesting to play through.

  • Take on 17 levels where you jump, run, and rotate the world in 90 degree intervals to progress.
  • Solve mind-bending puzzles set in an extraordinary paper collage world, with three different environments, enriched and brought to lifewith handmade sounds and music.
  • Go for the high score by challenging your friends and polish your skills of rotation.

sounds like fun multi player would have made it a lot better though

OMG IT'S COMING ON WIIWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am seriously that excited. Yes, Fleeman, that's the Mac footage. I played a demo of this on my computer and it is probably one of the best games I've ever experienced. And BTW, it would be ruined with the addition of multiplayer.

I almost ignored this one because the title sounds like a horror game and I am not into those. I'm glad I actually read a description of it. It sounds like a lot of fun. I love games like this.



letsplay said:

Another side-scroller . Excellent dream game. I hope they have bosses and power up's and unlocks.



cpl1701 said:

I downloaded the PC demo from their site and it is really fun. I can't wait till this is on WiiWare. Their website is www.andyetitmoves.net



John3714 said:

Definitely gonna try this one out. Only concern I have is the controls. They look like they will either be real innovative, or real clunky.



JakobG said:

@11: They're the developers.
I've met them yesterday, and they're certainly not homeless.
Rather indie.

Also, the gameplay has changed.
You have now 360°-control of the gravity.



iAmThetot said:

Looks interesting. Regardless of reviews, this is one I'll be picking up if for nothing else just to try out. I love indie games.

And, just curious, @tatemon555 how exactly could an OPTIONAL feature such as multiplayer ruin a game?



RowdyRodimus said:

I'll think about picking this up (well, downloading it to be technical) depending on how the controls are and if that song is repeated during the game. If it is, I'm not getting it, that was annoying. I know it's indie type music, but that doesn't mean it has to be bad music.



JakobG said:

Played it today.
The Wiimote-control is rather fiddly, but it works well with the Nunchuck and Pointer.



Klapaucius said:

Has this been forgotten? Cancelled? Its a shame, the demo on PC is awesome, so I really hope this does make it to WiiWare.



GotWii said:

This is a great game, my son and I played the demo it is very cool and starts out easy and has a good difficulty curve. Reminds me a cross between Defend your Castle for the graphics & sound, but the game play is like WofGoo. Please release this one!!!!!
