Boris the Sloth is a puzzle platforming adventure that donates to sloth conservation in real life

In case you missed it, Clutch Dynamics has released their nature-friendly puzzle platformer Boris the Sloth on iOS, Android and on Steam. The ecological adventure tasks players with solving physics-based conundrums across dangerous terrain through jungles, ruins, dungeons and caves.

In Boris the Sloth, players take on the role of the titular sloth as they save their friend Euka the Koala from a malevolent mandrake. You can make use of your special spirit realm powers to move objects and even uproot trees - you can even warp time itself all for the sake of friendship. The catch is that a single misstep might just get you stuck in the spirit realm for good, so use your powers wisely. Oddly enough, this particular protagonist is pretty swift for a sloth - and he really has to be if he's to best dangerous critters using his spiritual prowess and his own cunning.
