Little Wheel is a delicate point and click adventure where you play the role of a robot who is jolted alive by a bolt of lightning and tasked with finding out how to revive the rest of his robot civilisation. It seems perfectly pitched as a coffee break style game, with the relaxed atmosphere and jazz music along with the cool visual style and smooth gameplay. There are no ‘hidden pixel’ puzzles, most interactive elements are highlighted and usually it’s simply a case of just hitting the correct buttons in the correct order.
It’s an experience which is all too brief, but as I said there’s something quite amicable about its brevity. Everything about it just seems so delicately formed, even the protagonist who goes through a suprising amount of physical stress despite the short ride. It’s a wonderfully relaxing little game, so if you’re having a rough day at all now’s the time to put your feet up, get a mug of your favourite brew and of course, save the world.
