Ratings and Reviews
I am not a fan of these connect three games at all but this game adds a lot to the formula, especially if you are a fan of the show. Honestly I think anyone could get enjoyment out of it just because of the amount of charm this game has, but fans are definitely going to get the most bang for buck here. The gameplay is pretty standard connect 3 but has a bunch of stuff that keeps it interesting, and the power-ups seem more fair and useful than similar games. The character abilities are a really cool feature that keeps the game interesting, with a whole bunch to unlock and use. TheOffice building portion seems a bit gimmicky, but it looks really nice and it’s a good way to keep players motivated to keep playing. This way, a player can actively see how much they have progressed with a fun visual! Plentiful amounts of daily stuff, like challenges and mission, to keep yourself busy everyday! The unlocks for the mini-episodes are a SUPER amazing addition and are very enjoyable.
Keep in mind that all the voice acting is in Japanese
I highly recommend this app to anyone who enjoys these games, or if you don’t like in my case. I also hope this brings many new fans to the show! If you haven’t watched it, it’s available on Netflix with season 3 coming out August 28th! Give it a watch it’s really great!
A fun take on a familiar game genre
There is no shortage of Match-3 games, so a new one will have to be pretty memorable to stand out. Happily, Hive has managed to do so here in The Short-Timer Strikes Back. The joy and frustration found in the Netflix/Sanrio series “Aggretsuko” is perfectly captured within this game. Nearly every character in the series is represented here as a power-up to help you clear each level.
As a bonus, the further you pass levels, you unlock plenty of short animated videos depicting Retsuko’s daily grind and aggrieved workplace incidents, which are well worth watching. As far as expenses go, I was able to get past level 300 without shelling out for more coins or upgrades, so this game offers a lot of fun without needing a monetary boost so early on.
I should also note that while the game offers lots of Sanrio-brand joy in its kawaii graphics and catchy ragtime music, Retsuko will burst into death metal rage at the completion of each level, which it can be a little jarring. It’s all in good fun, though!
Fun and cute match three
This is a match three with some of the most polish I’ve seen. The graphics are upbeat, bright, colorful, and cute, and the power ups and boosts are intuitive and easy to use. Even if you don’t know the source material, you get the gist and humor behind what Aggretsuko is all about with the intro video. There is also an office building mechanic that utilizes the stars you earn from completing levels. It isn’t very in-depth but it’s still satisfying to watch everything be unlocked. I’d say this is a great capitalization on the franchise. It doesn’t feel like a cash-grab (despite the presence of micro transactions for gems and such) nor does it feel like a cynical attempt to make the most of the series’ popularity.
