OverviewOverview

Pip Gemwalker is a running and jumping puzzle game where you control a small mole character who needs to escape a maze to find diamonds. It's similar to Captain Toad's Treasure Tracker, where each level is small enough to fit on the screen and be rotated while you explore. This enables you to look ahead and investigate where you need to go and what you need to collect. Figuring out how to then do that with your character is then a challenge of execution.

Play involves guiding your mole through the maze-like levels. You need to fetch and carry some items so that you can progress. For example, carrying tree stumps to trigger doors, or standing on switches to open locks. As you work through the initial 7 levels things become more complex and challenging.
