When horse and rider become separated you must guide them through various obstacles and hazards and eventually reunite them.

You can tap anywhere on the screen. Touch to make Poto Jump, Release to make Cabenga jump!

Sounds simple? Can you pat your head and rub your tummy at the same time?

Unique single-touch gameplay, beautiful graphics and all manner of interesting enemies are what makes this quirky scrolling jump-em-up special.

Poto & Cabenga is a collaboration between artist Richard Hogg and Indie developers Honeyslug. Originally made last year for the Gamma 4 one-button competition, it was one of the 6 winning games and was showcased at GDC 2010.
