  • Can replay levels.
  • Clever puzzle design.
  • 20 levels across all modes.
  • Satisfying.
  • Chilled atmosphere.
  • Great brain workout.

Cons:

  • Boring music.
  • No actual tutorial.
  • Short game.
  • Forgettable not needed at all story.
  • No replayability.

Summary

Not a bad game but once you have played through it, That’s it you are done and to be honest it won’t take long to see the end of the game. It is decent but just needed more content.

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!
