Editors’ Choice

With a fairy-tale world designed like an exquisite Japanese pop-up book, Tengami is a remarkable adventure. Artfully blending bold colors, stirring sound design, and intriguing puzzles, the game establishes a contemplative mood sprinkled with moments of joyous surprise, ensuring the experience sticks with you long after you stop playing.

Fairy tale of a game

Walking and sailing through the pop-up book Japanese landscape is a lovely experience. No mayhem, no extreme brain-bending puzzles. More akin to an artwork than your average game. The clues provided are just enough to keep you exploring. I definitely wanted the game to last longer and also wished for a more engaging story line. I hope the team comes up with another, more complex adventure in the same style.

Needs some polishing

This game is a great idea, but it feels like a prototype of a full game. Not quite polished enough and too short.

The puzzles are sometimes so simple that you end up looking around for a more difficult solution only to be surprised that all you have to do to solve them is count things. A lesson could be learned from games like The Room.

The game in general is beautiful, but there are certain details where shortcuts seem to have been taken and more fluid movement of the character could give the game a more complete feel. It feels like some movements of the character were skipped to come back to later perfected (only they weren’t).

And finally, the game is really short. Like one hour worth of gameplay. It feels like the designers developed a few levels as a prototype and then they just never developed any more. For the $3.99 price, it feels like you should be getting more.

Great idea for a game, but just seems like someone rushed to get this out the door when too many things were left unfinished/unperfected.
