On a sunny day, Lil Viv and her Uncle Bob visited the forest, where Viv saw a mysterious mansion. Not thinking twice, she went into the abandoned house before Bob could even try to stop her. Standing in the hallway, the floor under their feet suddenly broke down. Viv and Bob fell into the basement, not knowing what will happen next.

Viv and Bob is a puzzle game made with GB Studio 1.1 where you play Viv and Bob, trying to exit the many rooms of the mansion's basement. While Bob is strong enough to push blocks to their designated places, Lil Viv is light enough to walk above insecure parts of the floor. Bob and Viv are trapped in two sides of a mirror. The room Bob is standing in is a mirrored version of Viv's room and vice versa. Actions on one side of the mirror affect the other side as well. Switch between both protagonists and always think about both sides of the mirror.

This is a game for the original Game Boy. The download contains a Game Boy ROM. The ROM can be played on emulators or even a real Game Boy if you are using a flashcart.

The current Version 1.0 of the game contains a set of levels. I will try to add more levels with Version 1.1. Moreover I will try to add some cutscenes and a animated prologue and epilouge. Obviously I will also fix bugs if I find them.

English is not my native language. If you find any text errors in my game, please let me know so I can fix them.

I hope you will enjoy my little game!

well done! thank you; also I found a bug in the last puzzle the door just opened for me (maybe the game was just being forgiving becaused I tried so many timnes :) keep up the good work!

nice little game, I enjoyed it

really fun :) thanks for making the game. Have you by chance heard of the game ditto? It uses the mirror concept but as a platformer instead of a puzzle.

I really liked your game, the idea of the mirrors and the two characters are really unique.

I ran into some rocks that are maybe should be cracked floors, but other than that I really liked it :)

Hey very nice game but theres a ending, I finshied a puzzle but the wall did not open :D
