Sizing up the marble-maze world of Leshy is important if you want to win, but so is sizing down. The rolling sphere you control will need to shrink to mere centimeters and slip through hidden crannies, as well as balloon to level-dwarfing proportions in order to navigate each stage of this multi-dimensional 3D puzzler.

Leshy was originally titled “Quicksilver Blaze,” and featured a wacky backstory for the ball you control. According to the tale, after video games eliminated the once thriving pinball business, the Russian mob (who were big pinball investors) take revenge on the world’s most famous video game programmer Pete Spelunker, zapping him into a strange program as a pinball. Pete, however, hacks the program and manages to seize control of the pinball’s size.
