Minilens is a fun open source puzzle-platform game set on post-apocalyptic Earth. The star of the show is Minilens, a robot that lacks the ability to jump. His task is to cleanse Earth of radioactive barrels, and at the same time collect the only life left on the planet — flowers.
There are 45 levels to solve. The game offers a great way to stimulate your grey matter, particularly as some of the levels are tricky to solve. And when (if?) you’ve solved all the levels or you’re totally stumped, the fun doesn’t end. It’s easy to make new challenging levels using the Godot Engine. The engine creates games targeting PC, console, mobile and web platforms, and has dozens of developers and more than 400 contributors.
Minilens has support for all major operating systems, and you can also play the game in a web browser, courtesy of the Godot Engine. Puzzle games, just like every other genre, are sharing in the mobile gaming boom. Like any good puzzle game, Minilens is addictive and entertaining. The reason why you can’t put this game down is the satisfaction received from solving each problem.
