Screenshot Saturday Mondays: Daft and dramatic movement methods

Every weekend, indie devs show off current work on Twitter’s #screenshotsaturday tag. And every Monday, I bring you a selection of these snaps and clips. This week, my eye has been caught by a variety of cool and fun movement methods, from skimming your broomstick over the sea to committing violence while surfing atop an enemy’s body. Check out all these attractive and interesting indie games!

First, a spot of mundane movement in Troleu, a trolleybus game which looks lively enough that you might need to fight passengers:
