Fairune is a cute little retro-style puzzle action adventure, where you control an 8-bit sprite to level up, solve puzzles (eg traps, buttons) and eventually save the world. Movement is very slick, particularly the rapid slide as you change screens.

Forums may be vital for solving some of the trickier puzzles. Watching at least the first few minutes of the Gameplay Trailer will really speed your entry into the game – and help solve the first puzzles for you – giving you a good idea of what to look for in future.
