With most of the attention focused on the big Rise of the Tomb Raider gameplay reveal on the Microsoft stage this week at E3, this little gem may have flown in under the radar. Lara Croft GO, a turn-based puzzle game for mobile devices, is being developed by Square Enix Montréal, the team responsible for the critically acclaimed Hitman GO and the upcoming Hitman Sniper.
Unlike the fast-twitch action of Lara Croft Relic Run, Lara Croft GO proceeds at a more sedate pace with simple yet lush graphics, an atmospheric soundtrack, and puzzles with escalating degrees of difficulty. Check out the official trailer below, as well as this gameplay demo featuring developers Daniel Lutz and Patrick Naud.
Lara Croft GO promises 40 levels totalling 4-5 hours of gameplay. It will be released on mobile phones and tablets later this year.
