Summary

Mochi Mochi Boy sounds like the long lost brother of Nobi Nobi Boy and in fact, plays like a 2D version of said Nobi Nobi but enough of that. We are here to speak about the puzzle game Mochi Mochi Boy, it’s a simple process, slide around the board one block at a time, avoid obstacles and cover the floor with your body. Levels get progressively harder with more obstacles and enemies added. It’s very quick to get into, good job as the “tutorial” is a just a simple image. Trophies are thrown at you quicker than you can actually finish a level and if that’s your thing it will be a short quick game. In finishing, you will probably have played a game similar to this many times before, Mochi Mochi Boy doesn’t add anything new or memorable except easy trophies.

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!
