Ilomilo available on XBLA now.. kind of

#1 Posted by Terry_Bogard (303 posts) -

For anyone who is interested, Ilomilo is available on XBLA now.. but the only way to get access to the trial (as far as I know) is to go to this website and grab a "super-secret access code". It sounds kind of stupid, but that's the only way to buy it for the time being. I tried the demo and it's actually pretty good.

Why is no one fucking replying to this, this game is fantastic. 
 
One of the best puzzle games on the 360 by far.

Just downloaded it myself, can't wait to try it.

Nice, I'll probably check it out. The art style looks very much like Little Big Planet.

Have been interested in this game for a while - visuals are utterly gorgeous. 
 
If I was in the same country as my 360, it would already be downloading. Hopefully it'll come to Steam...

Oh, and make sure you press LT > RT > LB > RB when on the main menu for a neat surprise :)

Oh wow, had no idea there was a way to get this.
Been looking forward to it a lot, thanks for the link.  Downloading now  :)

Played a few levels. First impressions: GET THIS GAME NOW.

#9 Posted by Murtaug (309 posts) -

Very laid back game, the trial levels were pretty easy though it goes without saying that will change. I loved the style, might have to pick this one up later if the mood strikes me.

Cant decide whether to get this or not.. Does it ever get challenging? 
I don't wanna pick this up if its just gonna be another game like The Maw (good looking, but not varied at all and absurdly easy).

#11 Posted by countinhallways (630 posts) -

This game is amazingly charming and plays very well. I would urge everyone to give the trial a go for sure.

It's pretty good but kinda repetitive so far.

How far are you? I'm almost done with the first chapter, and can't say it's been that bad.
 
My only complaint is that the game have a habit of freezing every now and then, and that the Avatar Awards doesn't work. Maybe it's because the game isn't actually officially released yet, but hopefully they'll patch it soon.

@CrazyChris:
I'm just done with the first one, and I too have had freezing issues.  It's pretty annoying but yeah, it'll probably be patched out when it's officially released.

I'm still playing the first chapter but I see a lot of potential for adding replayability and difficulty through the leaderboards. The leaderboards are ranked by how few cubes you pass through in your solution for the puzzle. The first few puzzles are easy to get the same score as the communities best, but some of the later ones I've been doing in Chapter 1 has me scratching my head on how people got through it with the few cubes they passed. Also leaderboards rank the overall world and overall game scores too, so yeah. Puzzles don't seem like they will ever be frustratingly difficult, but trying to beat the leaderboards will be.

Is anyone having trouble redeeming the code? I try to enter it on the redeem code page on xbox.com, but it just says " 

It appears you've found a glitch in the system.

 
 
 
 
How did you guys get it to work?
#23 Posted by Terry_Bogard (303 posts) -

I had to redeem it on the Xbox. It wouldn't work on Xbox.com for some reason.

I'm always down for a good puzzle game. I'll have to check this one out. I'll start by watching the QL.
 
Those always represent games to their fullest right?

@Terry_Bogard: Thanks for your help. Downloaded it, played 10 minutes of the trial with my Mum, and she bought it for us. Looks like I know what we'll be doing while we're snowed in this week!
#26 Posted by DoctorTran (1575 posts) -

Gonna buy it when I get paid tomorrow. The trial was charming as fuck.

#27 Posted by Terry_Bogard (303 posts) -
@Kaburorne: lol no problem, dood.
#28 Posted by YoThatLimp (1938 posts) -

Thinking about picking this up for the wife, looking forward to a few of your reviews!

#29 Posted by Ronald (1394 posts) -

I just used the code on xbox.com and it placed the demo in my download queue.

#30 Posted by BBQBram (2294 posts) -

Hey thanks for the tip duder, I'll probably use this code now.

#31 Posted by DoctorTran (1575 posts) -

I'm absolutely loving this game.

#32 Posted by warpr (91 posts) -

I just get "This code has already been used.", so I guess that secret link no longer gives out working codes.

#33 Posted by OneKillWonder_ (1835 posts) -
@warpr:  I just got a valid code and am downloading it now. You should try doing it again.
