In Ittle Dew, the player takes control over Ittle Dew who strands on a remote island together with her sidekick Tippsie, a winged fox. Now she has to find a way home.
Regarding gameplay, it is reminiscent of the top-down Zelda titles: the protagonist is directly controlled and explores both the overworld and various dungeons. While there are some enemies to fight, the focus is on puzzle solving, mostly Sokoban-style sliding puzzles. During the course of the game Ittle gets three weapons which are also used for puzzle solving: a fire sword, a ice wand and a wand which allows to create blocks and teleport.
There are shortcuts and secrets to find, and an online leaderboard for the shortest completion time.
