Above and Below

Above and Below is a 2D puzzle platformer where you control a brother and sister, Iliana and Dion, who were separated when the robot uprising forced the women and children of the human race underground. They meet by chance and must work collaboratively to find each other again. You can switch perspective from Iliana to Dion and back again with the touch of a button. They rely entirely on each other in order to solve the puzzles and move on to the next level, so prepare to challenge yourself as you make your way through Above and Below.


  • Left and right arrow keys for horizontal movement.
  • Space bar to jump.
  • Z to switch character perspective.

Known issues

  • Player occasionally gets stuck on edge of few platforms.
  • Can't play in WebGL full screen, so we have built in 'minimal player' setting.
  • Camera occasionally pans outside of the map e.g. top left in level 2.
