Leo's Fortune Cheats And Tips
Fortune favors the fuzzy.
If you're a fan of platformers, Leo's Fortune comes highly recommended. This title, produced by 1337 & Senri, is a console-quality side-scroller where an insightful fuzzball works his way through trouble-filled levels, all for the sake of finding his stolen fortune.
The going can get rough, but you'll be ready with these tips.
How do I play Leo's Fortune?
Unlike most platforming heroes, Leo doesn't possess enemy-squashing abilities. Rather, he can use momentum to get up curved walkways, similar to the speedy Sonic the Hedgehog, and also inflate to get over great distances. In some cases, he can also sink like a stone, provided he has enough momentum in the air.
These functions are all performed using touch-screen controls. You'll guide the hero left and right using the left thumb function, while adjusting his height and descent with the right thumb.
How do I solve puzzles in Leo's Fortune?
Usually it has something to do with the environment. Very rarely did we get stuck in the game, because of the wonderful puzzle design the developers put into place.
For example, in the second level, you may find an out-of-reach ledge, or need to get over spiked walls. The best thing you can do is look around and see what works best, whether it's a switch, a bounce pistol, a set of boxes or an anchor. Even if you end up dying once by accident, it's worth it just to find the solution.
Once you figure it out - and it should only take a few seconds - you'll move on with ease.
How do I earn stars in Leo's Fortune?
Stars are unlocked by meeting certain criteria at the end of the level. You'll get one by default just for completing it, but you'll also be able to earn two extra stars from beating a pre-set time limit for the level and completing it without losing any lives.
The more stars you unlock, the more bonus stages you'll be able to access. These bonus stages give you the opportunity to enhance your skills in races and other activities, in which you can compare best times with other players.
In fact, if you earn enough stars in the game, you'll be able to unlock Hardcore Mode, which unlocks a brand new difficulty that will really put your platforming skills to the test. Try to collect as many as you can!
What happens if I die in Leo's Fortune?
If you somehow end up dying in a stage, keep in mind that you can always start over and try to complete it without losing any lives. There's no penalty for that.
Are there any hidden collectibles in Leo's Fortune?
Yes. There are various golden cogs hidden around certain stages, and collecting these will go a long way towards unlocking Hardcore Mode, along with the stars that you pick up at the end of each stage. If you catch a glimpse of one of these bad boys in the game, look around. You may just be able to find a way to get up there and collect it!
Remember, the goal is to keep trying to get everything, including coins, stars and golden cogs.
Do I need to pay for anything in Leo's Fortune?
The initial price for the game is $4.99. Outside of that, you don't need to pay for anything else. Leo's Fortune is worth the asking price, because it looks fantastic and has solid controls to boot.
