  • I can respect games that aren’t made for the adrenaline junkie set, whose goal is to proceed at a slower pace and enjoy taking everything in. That’s certainly the style of Calico, with your goal being to revitalize the town cafe while making friends around town of both the human and furry varieties. Unfortunately the main obstacle is that, for now, there are quite a number of ways the game steps on its own tail. The A and B buttons are reversed from the norm, something that always grates a bit (this has been promised to be resolved in an upcoming patch), the customization component when choosing colors can be a bit wonky and lose some of your choices, and just in general there are some visual and gameplay bugs that you’ll run into more than you should. The positive is that since this isn’t a high-intensity game for the most part you’re not being greatly inconvenienced by any of the problems. However, there’s no doubt that they erode from the experience and as there are some other great casual adventures out there in the eShop it bumps this a bit further down on the “must-play” list.
