Leo's Fortune (Xbox One) - Review

Leo's Fortune is available now on the Xbox One and is priced at £5.59.

Leo started out his life on mobile platforms a little while back, but has now rolled his way onto the home consoles. Does it translate well to the big screen?

Leo's Fortune sees you play as the little fulfil pictured as he tries to find out who stole his gold. His prime suspects are his family but obviously it's not as simple as all that as on your quest to track them down you will encounter spike traps and other pitfalls galore in this platformer.

As pretty as the game is it still feels very much like you're playing a game made for mobile. Controls are responsive, but the game feels slightly too simplistic on the meatier hardware of a console and it suffers greatly for it. It could have made up for this had had it had more of a personality, but as it is everything about this game just feels a little, well, deflated and flat.

Maybe it's just because of all the blockbuster releases recently, but I struggled to actually enjoy this game. For the time I spent with it I was mostly just sat going through the motions, which isn't how any of us want to spend our spare time. It's a shame but I'd say skip this one guys.

3/10 SKIP IT!
