Big Update! Face remixing and a full Japanese translation!

March 16th, 2014

Face remixing and a full Japanese translation. That's right. Japan has given me so much. And now I give back to them (and you).

What do I give? Robots with unibrows and flowers in their blonde, wavy hair. Girls with wicked scars and wickeder mustaches. Nerds with sad, thinning hair, diamond eyeballs and robot teeth.

Edit almost any face in the game and the changes stick through every level and every adorable cutscene. You are no longer chained to the developer's heteronormative depiction of romance! You like blueberries? EVERYBODY IS NOW BLUEBERRIES. done. I will cloudsave your blueberry people. They are with you everywhere.

You're welcome Japan.

If you're like me, and can only speak Japanese after Google has translated it to English, here's some highlights from our new Japanese website:

"Seki-gae spectacle puzzle engulfing the universe! Explosion-Yul square Kawai!
Kawai, the square, boned puzzle! Face of every single character that appeared in the game piece!"

Engulfing. The. Universe.

This game is pretty hilarious. The puzzles get more difficult as you get further into the levels, but the hilarity of the 'plot' and the reasoning.... Girls like robots, nerds like edges, girls are only okay with nerds if there is an adjacent pie.... Just a quirky unrealistic logic game, but hey, who knows! Maybe some girls really do like pie THAT MUCH. Turn it around from a way to a man's heart is through his stomach.... now it's a way to sit next to a girl is through an adjacent pie. It's definitely some good laughs with some 'wtf logic' moments.

Very fun, little, casual puzzle game. The art style is playful and vibrant with a wonderful attention to detail, especially in the backgrounds. The animations were smooth and fun to watch, as a feature the game also allows the player to skip the cutscenes or even watch the cutscenes again in the level viewer. The story was surprisingly well done as well. Normally, I would not expect a story in a puzzle game like this, however there was a story, and it was quite easy to follow. Though the adventures were wacky and didn't make any logical sense, it fit the overall tone of the game perfectly. I must also applaud the creators of the game for adding little references from other media and of course geek culture. The soundtrack of this game was great, however it got very repetitive as the game progressed, for my ears got tired of hearing the same banjo tune strummed over and over again. The best way to remedy this problems is to take a break once in a while to let your ears rest. However this little problem did not and will not dull the rest of the gaming experience in anyway.

The game was easy to pickup and play, however don't get me wrong, some of the puzzles will take a little bit of thinking to figure it out, especially if you are a completionist. Bonus content allows for some replayability which adds to the value of the game itself and in no ways detracts from the main game itself. The system of unlocking bonus content is well done, as even an intermediate skilled player will be able to "buy" the content (The main game will provide more than enough "happy" points to unlock them). The achievements brings nothing new to the table, but it fairly awards those who are willing to spend some time in the game.

Overall this is a solid game with little to no faults to describe. It is a must own for people who like puzzle games, and for people who don't, this is a good game to pick up, because of its ease of play. The game's content to value ratio is good, however don't expect to sink hundreds of hours into this game. 9/10

if you felt that the puzzle game that you were currently playing was lacking humour, then try this one as well! Easy to learn, hard to get the perfect scores on each level, but nonetheless will give you a laugh with its randomness (for example putting fires out with cows). Highly recommend it!

If the words "Logic puzzles with a silly sense of humour" scratch your fancy, this is what you're after. It's all based on arranging various pieces that react differently to their adjacent pieces. Which sounds simple, and it mostly is, but the developper showed a lot of wit and creativity in the game's design, and it's very well refined.

Only problem is that it's a bit short, but the ride is plenty enjoyable and, I think, well worth the price.
