This platform puzzler puts players in the character of a rolling skull. Transform into three different shapes, each possessing different skills needed to navigate through its 18 levels and seven environments. You can even throw your own head when changing forms.

Legbreaker

Legbreaker

This quirky platform puzzle game has two interesting constructs: 1) you can only jump twice in each level; and 2) you break one leg each time you jump. Azaan Lambkin’s submission to itch.io’s Finally Finish Something 2020 contest ironically has a bug that keeps some players from seeing the game’s ending.
