Carto is an adventure puzzle game that is unusual in letting you rearrange the map tiles while you are playing. This enables you to access new areas of the world previously impossible to get to. This can be as simple as redirecting a river out of your way, or as complex as arranging a series of landscape features to trigger a magical item.

You meet many characters along the way who can help you on your journey home and usually need a bit of help from you in return. The landscape is hand-drawn and has different biomes that each have their own character, culture and unique map mechanic.

Rated PEGI 3 (Provisional).

Skill Rating

10+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. The novel map-creation gameplay and the cute narrative makes this good for younger players.


The gameplay and puzzles in Carto involves moving tiles around to change the game world, so while there is a clear game map of the current layout available you are frequently rearranging it and that can make it hard to get oriented when you switch back out of the map mode.
