Poi: a platformer that you should all look out for

We can certainly guess the fate of a game by the way that it makes its entry onto download stores! These days, thousands of new titles are being released and it’s indeed not easy for players to pick the best in terms of entertainment, purposefulness and gameplay. However, nowadays, there seems to be a pretty clear incline towards platformers among mobile users.

The trend might not be similar among video gamers in general, but if there is an app that’s being talked about these days, it will have to be Poi! The latter is a platform-running adventure; it can presently be downloaded for Windows, Mac OS X, Steam OS and Linux. Do note that developer PolyKid also plans to deliver a mobile port for iOS smartphones and tablets.

This 3D adventure is certainly out there to challenge the Mario franchise, but it’s also true that it will not really succeed until it finally takes over major download stores. For now though, things are going pretty smoothly for this new release!

To boot, folks at Destructoid believe that “Poi looks like all the best 3D Mario games combined into one”! Some impressive statements made indeed, and as a mobile fanatic, I suppose that it will be totally worth waiting for this project to land on platforms that interest us the most.
