Swing skilfully in new physics-based platformer OCMO

Sometimes it’s the most difficult of obstacles that can be the most rewarding. One game hoping to prove this is OCMO, the new tough but fair platformer from developers Team Ocmo. Primed to set every speedrunner’s pulse racing, as an otherworldly black octopus with a hunger for bunnies you’re tasked to swing your way to success.

Launching globally for iOS devices following a successful limited release in other territories, OCMO is aiming to redefine what the hardcore platformer on mobile can be by way of intuitive touch controls. With a setup that gives you great grasp of the titular creature’s tendons, you’ll touch, tap, and swipe your way through many a misty cavern and wobbly woodland in a bid to be the best and claim your prize.

With 80 jam-packed levels full of dangers to dodge and obstacles to overcome, OCMO will take time and dedication to learn, but working your way through the levels is intended to be a reward in itself. An instant respawn mechanic makes light work of letting you replay stages generously quickly, so it’s easy to undertake another run to maintain any established momentum.

OCMO aims to be all about immersing yourself in the movement of the creature, making mastering the game’s mechanics not necessary, but fulfilling. Consider the physics around you, then pull and reach with your tentacles to complete the stages in time and you’ll unlock many hidden secrets and boss fights.

Swing your way to success in physics-based platforming fun. OCMO is available to download for iOS platforms.
