When it comes to games packing in some weirdness on the Switch I’m typically a big fan. But a tendency towards the bizarre or disturbing isn’t enough in itself, the gameplay still needs to deliver to make it work. In the case of Tamashii you can see the potential, and it is undoubtedly packed with “WTF is that?!?!” moments, but ultimately those elements of weirdness aren’t able to cover up that the mechanics and controls in this puzzle platformer just aren’t very good. There’s a definite trial and error feed to it at times, but when there’s often frustration where you know what you need to do but it can be a struggle to execute it can be aggravating. If you’re willing to endure some warts there’s a load of weirdness to be enjoyed here, but don’t say you weren’t warned.
