Chuchel is a surprise as you look at it and never actually know what you are going to get. I mean you know now because I told you but its still full of mystery as you work out the puzzle before the solution. It’s so well presented and so much fun to play through. The main character is constantly trying to get the cherry and it keeps eluding him. If you have seen Ice Age then you know its basically Scrat (The Squirrel) chasing his acorn. It’s got a lot of puzzles but I found once I had done them I had little enthusiasm to go through it again, The charm was in its first time exposure. In short its a wonderfully presented puzzle game that will charm you as much as it will frustrate you.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
