After their plane is downed by a mischievous specter, Miles and Kilo find themselves stranded on a haunted island. With their plane stripped of its critical components, their only hope of escape is to chase down a gang of thieving villains across the perilous landscape...

Miles & Kilo is a super tough, super fast-paced platformer by Michael Burns. Since it first released on the iOS App Store earlier this year, Miles & Kilo has received acclaim from both critics and gamers alike:

"Those who love a good platformer will want to add this one to their collections immediately." TouchArcade, 5 out of 5.

"Miles and Kilo is a brilliant game through and through. It's clearly been put together with such love that it's almost impossible not to get wrapped up in it." PocketGamer, 8 out of 10.

"This platformer is so immaculately designed that it's hard to put down." 148Apps, 4.5 out of 5.

App Store Rating in the US: 4.8 out of 5.

The Steam version of Miles & Kilo is the definitive version of the game, bringing full gamepad controller support, extra polish, bug fixes, and re-tuned level design.

Miles & Kilo will launch on Steam for PC and Mac on November 30 for $7.99.

About the Game

The game stars two playable characters: a young explorer named Miles, and his lovable (but mischievous) dog, Kilo. Both Miles and Kilo have their own diverse sets of moves and abilities: Miles can wall-jump, slide, punch, and toss fruit at pesky critters; Kilo can somersault through breakable walls and dash through the air to pounce on nearby baddies. Levels also feature a variety of rides, including mine carts, rope swings, surfboards, and more!

Each of Miles & Kilo's 36 levels can be cleared without stopping, making it a perfect choice for fans of speedrunning platformers. In addition, a special Time Attack mode is unlocked after beating the game -- here gamers can compete with each other via online Steam leaderboards.

Miles & Kilo features 31 normal levels, 5 special boss levels, a dozen old-school style cutscenes, and a totally rad chiptune soundtrack by Chris Kukla.
