The mechanics are very simple. Your protagonist will start at the upper part of the scene and you have to descend down into different levels using the platforms that are set up to allow you to do so as you rescue all of the creatures and avoid the different enemies.
It's not as easy as it sounds. You have to keep a lot of factors in mind. First of all, when you leave one of the levels on one side, you will appear at the extreme opposite side on the next level, and by doing so you can go up a level or down a level. In addition, when you collect some creatures, they will drop bombs that can kill you if you're not careful.
Endless Forms Most Beautiful is a very entertaining platformer that has enchanting graphics, a very good soundtrack, and simple but completely addictive mechanics. In addition, you can play on your own or with other players.
