I love origami. That was one reason I decided to pick up this game. However, it actually has nothing to do with folding paper - just a pleasant aesthetic texture to the game resembling paper.

Nice puzzler with with increasing difficulty and hints system. The learning curve is adequate so far and I'm only onto the second last group of puzzles in the "classic" section.

I have one gripe, however. My son was watching me play and he is colour blind. He is unable to discern the colours (e.g. the red and the orange are the same colour to him). Perhaps developers who design colour based games could take this condition into consideration and include a setting for those afflicted by colour blindness.

Short, relaxing puzzle game. I really enjoyed watching the paper flip and fold (sounds effects make it even better). The enjoyment is similar to watching solitaire cards slide and clear into a pile.

Most people might disagree with me, but anyway this is just my opinion. I think kami is overrated. Similarly to fez, i completed a big amount of puzzles without knowing how... On top of that, the first 3 sets of puzzles are challenging and at times difficult, but from the 4th set and on the game becomes just... so unbelievably difficult... At least for me it does.

I have just finished the last of the Classic puzzles. I play this game usually for 15 minutes at a time. It is lovely. Wonderful sound design! The puzzles are logic. No tricks or anything. Just pure logic.

I recommend.

I'm so glad I hadn't read the game description before purchasing -- because this game is WAY more interesting and enjoyable than it deserves to be! I'm certain if I had read the objective was to (....I won't ruin it for you.....), I wouldn't have bought or played the game. The puzzles are well-designed, and the visuals escalate the seemingly-mundane theme to an immersive, artistic playground.

A very relaxing and oneiric game. The atmosphere is awesome and so is the gameplay, that sometimes gets tricky, but never frustrating. I simply love the music. It's a very good game, and with a very good price. Recommended to anyone who wants a relaxing experience.

First thing you need to know about this game KAMI is
Kami=Paper

It's a Japanese tradition to fold paper into many different and cool kind of shapes most of Japnese festive involve using paper as a decroraton.

This game is about folding paper too.. You need to make paper color switch into 1 type for each stage to complete the level. There is a move limit involved and if u do it with least amount of move you get a perfect. IF u do perfect+1 you get an ok rating and still pass the stage but if u do any worse.. you lose the level.. A very simple and basic puzzle that everyone will love playing. There are not too many stages right now and as long as you don't get stuck.. you can finish it in 3 hours or so...

No archievement.. no trading cards.. basic graphic.. ok music/sound...

7.5/10 for interesting little puzzle game.. And it's probably played better on a Ipad or other pads.. Need to have more stages.

KAMI is an attractive well-presented and simple puzzle game. To solve each level you must select areas to fill continuously with a colour (like the paint bucket in MS paint), doing this a number of times to have the entire screen one colour to complete the level.

Highly original and learning curve is not steep. Some later levels are very difficult however.

It doesn't take too long to make your way through a majority of the levels, so game-length is perhaps shorter than most similar puzzle games. Some have compared it to LYNE which seemingly has no end.

Overall, recommended because it's a unique and refreshing take on the puzzle genre, well-presented and colourful.

這絕對是提高益智的好遊戲,挺好玩兒的,沒有過多的文字說明,也許你會卡在一個關卡很久,但是當你perfect以後成就感絕對爆棚!!

Great game! Simple rules, nice puzzles, relaxing gameplay. What else you can wish from game, which costs less than 2$. I've completed it on 100% in a bit more than 4 hours and that's only negative thing, which I've noticed. We need more KAMI puzzles :)

It''s a very pretty game, with nice soothing music in the menu. The aim in each of the puzzles is to "clear" the screen by making all the paper the same colour by applying coloured paper to it in as few moves as possible. There isn't any time element to it, so solving the puzzles is quite relaxing and when the game gets tricky it becomes challenging, but not in a frustrating way. There's also a hint system to solve puzzles that you're stuck on. For the price, it's a lovely little indie game with very nice graphics which will probably get you several hours of gameplay, there is also a complex set of puzzles too.

(I think it's very resonably priced) - Definitley worth a try if you love a good puzzle game!

KAMI is lovely, it has a beautiful aesthetic theme, and it is very creative... Sound effects are congruous with it, and the Japanese music is very fitting. I think it misses an "undo" button... Some puzzles are easy, some hard, but still, it is quite challenging.

i wanted to like this game a lot, since im into the aesthetic and i love board-based puzzle games like this. but the game is too trial-and-error to be enjoyable, as you get deeper into the game there's certain puzzles where you don't feel like you learnt enough about the game to get you to that point. it seems like it's teaching you methods and patterns and then something completely different will turn up that'll take you 30 minutes to figure out. and the solution is rarely rewarding because you find yourself brute forcing it. i stopped finding it enjoyable at the point where i'd feel like I was just getting used to other puzzle games, so maybe it's just a pacing thing. everyone should play Hexcells.
