Game Troopers' iO is a new physics platformer for Windows 10 and Xbox One

The folks at Game Troopers have another new game to check out on Windows 10 and Xbox One. Simply called iO (opens in new tab), the game is a take on the physics-based platformer genre that has you manipulating your size while rolling and leaping through more than 200 mazes. And if that weren't enough, iO throws in portals, gravity inversion, and more to mix things up.

Here's a taste of what you'll find in iO:

  • Play with size, weight and mass to reach the exit as fast as possible.
  • Over 225 challenging puzzles to solve.
  • Intuitive touch controls.
  • Unlock Xbox Live achievements.
  • Unique and wide variety of gameplay mechanics including gravity manipulation, portals, vehicles and more.
  • Retro-futuristic visuals.

As puzzle-platformers go, iO looks fairly intriguing. If you're interested in giving the game a shot, you can grab it for Windows 10 PC and Mobile at a discounted launch price of $4.99 (regularly $7.99) now. iO is also available on Xbox One for $7.99, but it looks like it's a separate listing altogether. Simply search iO on your console to grab it there.

  • Can you guys please review it first before we drop money on it.
  • Why don't you review it for us before we drop money on it?
  • Looks interesting! How does it work with a controller?
  • Looks awesome, sort of like Polly and the marble maze, except not really :) I agree, can you guys review before we dish the green...please.
  • Yes review would be great but would prefer a demo
  • It's $5, by the time a review comes it'll be more expensive. Try living on the edge folks. The game is exactly what it looks like, not my kinda thing beyond a few minutes but support play anywhere and Gametroopers. They've given us lots of free Xbox enabled games, really the past two years, they're the only dev supporting XBox on WM.
  • Not the only ones, but among the few of them.
  • It isn't a "play anywhere" title
  • I played it. It's amazing ❤
  • Sounds like a Paul game
