Topatoi is a refreshing blend of platformer and puzzle genres, combining the old school impact of the legendary titles like Bubba 'N Stix or The Lost Vikings with original and inventive gameplay mechanics.

It combines the best features of the predecessors and provides absolutely new gameplay experience. Being exciting, nice and highly captivating, this game appeals to everyone.

“topatoi” puts you at the controls of a fantastic gyroscopic hovercraft, which handles much like a futuristic whirligig. Spin it around a mysterious, unexplored corner of a remote world in an effort to repair your crashed airship and attempt to rescue your girlfriend. Help the hero, Raph, through the intricate and dangerous world of the Great Tree, combat hostile natives and negotiate with the inhabitants of a fantasy world. Success in your main mission will unlock more than ten bonus levels and an interesting multiplayer split-screen mode to further shake-up your playing experience.
