Amigo Pancho has you interacting with the various colorful environments in a wide variety of ways, which is why we can’t recommend it enough. There’s something new around every corner.

Sounds easy, right? Well, it’s not. You can’t cross over your own path to fill in the open space, and you can’t lift your finger to start a new path. There’s only one way to solve each puzzle, and it’s up to you to figure out what it is. The game is loaded with six worlds and 210 levels to complete.

The photo will be turned into a large thumbnail, which can easily be viewed, edited, and shared from the main screen.
