While there's no denying its cute and positive vibes, it makes for better entertainment than gaming
Credit to the team behind this unusual title, it has a style all its own and an almost saccharine positivity that wants to win you over. Feeling almost as determined to entertain with its quirky story cutscenes, commercials, and colorful characters as with gameplay though that’s where some cracks do show. Finding the right level of difficulty for your game is no doubt a serious development challenge, but while the relative ease seems to suit the generally kid-friendly vibes the game exudes from every pore there’s no mistaking that most of the action is quite simplistic. Weirdly you do have quite a number of abilities, cards, and helper characters you’re able to leverage, which lends a feel of personalization and variety, but given the lack of creativity and variety in the stage design and so much of the action being pretty basic those skills don’t feel very necessary. Throw in the problem that if you’re really here for consistent action the presentation-heavy nature of everything may ice your enthusiasm from stage to stage. It’s absolutely its own thing, and that’s something I appreciate in a title, but I’m also not entirely sure who the target audience necessarily is given its generally dull gameplay.
