Looking for Laika has players taking control of an astronaut who has a best friend, which is a dog named Laika. Unfortunately for your astronaut character, Laika ends up getting abducted by aliens and with that your journey begins as you search for your beloved dog. You will have to search different world, each with their own style of gameplay as well as puzzles to solve. Each world also has their own type of enemies you have to deal with.
Looking for Laika Features:
– Combining a platform game experience with one-tap gameplay

Instead of the usual control set-up found in most side-scrolling platformers, Looking for Laika uses a different type of control scheme that focuses on a one-tap style of gameplay, even though this is a platformer. The developers chose this method in order to eliminate the problem of the button feedback found in a lot of platformers for mobile. At least that is what some people have a problem with anyways.
Looking for Laika is available on Amazon’s Appstore for $1.13 right now. No word as to when it will arrive onto Google Play but when it does, we will post an update.
