The I Of It is a quirky platform puzzle & skill game where you have to control the letter “I” and reunite him with his beloved friend; the letter “T”. After “T” ran off, “I” became bored and lonely, and set off on an epic quest to find his buddy. You play the role of the letter “I”, and have to navigate through various mazes, platforms and challenges by shrinking and enlarging in size. The eccentric narration in this game makes it unique, with a funny British-style voice telling you what to do in each level.
“I” can move from side to side and grow bigger and smaller, but he cannot jump, so maneuvering him around is very tricky. You must grab onto ledges, moving blocks and balloons as well as avoiding spikes and other objects. This fun yet challenging brain teaser will test your prediction and move planning skills, and quick reactions, as you have to carefully time some of the letter “I” ‘s movements. The laws of gravity also come into play, as you have to flip gravity switches to float towards your destination in some levels. Ready to reunite two of everybody’s favorite alphabetical characters? “I” know you can do it!
How to Play: Move the letter “I” from left to right using the Left and Right Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard. Hit the Up Arrow to make him bigger, and the Down Arrow to make him smaller. Alternatively, you can use the WASD Keys. Because he cannot jump, the best way of getting “I” around is to grab onto ledges using his serifs (little edges at each end). This allows “I” to get to places otherwise inaccessible, by shrinking to fit small passages, or by stretching to grab a ledge with his top serif. Once you have “hooked” onto a ledge, pull “I” up by shrinking / enlarging – depending on how big or small he needs to become to progress.
In each level, the goal is to get to the other side of the game screen. In some levels, there are spikes and other sharp objects that damage “I”. If he hits off any of these, you have to start the level all over again. In later levels, you have to flip gravity switches that alter the force of gravity, floating “I” into a different direction. You also have to drift around on a balloon in some levels.
