A game to love and care for
Tabikaeru allows you to raise a froggy of your own—you purchase food and other travel items for your frog and watch it head off for travel and adventure. In the meantime, you wait (patiently) at home, collecting 3-leaves clovers (the currency in this gams) and hoping to receive some postcards from your frog’s travels. Eventually, (though the time is random) your frog comes home and brings back souvenirs! Then, you simply wait until they embark on their next journey. Despite its simplicity and (lack) of gameplay features, Tabikaeru is an incredibly addictive game that leaves you obsessed with your tiny frog friend/pet/child. I just open the app once in a while to collect clovers and check if my frog is back yet/left on another trip. Because of the minimal features you won’t be stuck in this game for more than 10min at a time. But it’s easy to understand and keep up, best if you are busy and can’t dedicate to a more complex game! Also it’s just fun unlocking new places and receiving cute postcards of your frog’s adventures ;w;
iPad version problem
I have been enjoying this game quite a lot until lately when I started to have problems with the iPad version. It started when no visitors showed up in the yard for almost 40hours. Then the turtle came. I fed the turtle and tapped out the game. When I tapped back to the game a while after, the turtle disappeared and the snail came. All seemed normal except that there was no gift from the turtle as usual. I fed the snail and tapped out the game. When I tapped back a while after, the snail disappeared and the turtle came back, already fed. And no gift from the snail. I turned off the app and restarted the game. Same turtle. I restarted the iPad. Same turtle. Then I turns off the app for a while. When I restarted the game, the turtle disappeared and a fed snail showed up! Of course no gift from the turtle either. What is going on? The game on my iPhone does not have this problem at all. I hope someone at Hit Point is reading the post since I can’t find where to contact them on their website. I hope they will have this bug fixed.
The art style is my favourite part of this game. I love Neko Atsume and Spoon Pets, but this shows you can still have an adorable, addictive game be appealing through a softer, sweeter look. The style makes me homesick for my years spent in Japan - Tabikaeru really embodies the peaceful, slower pace of the neighbourhoods and countryside of such a lovely country. The obvious care in the style of food, the half organized half haphazard little house, the memento pictures; everything is perfect.
Admittedly while I’m more than comfortable using Google Translate in order to play, I’m afraid that it’s fairly obvious that a lot of the warm, cozy meaning is lost in translation. The game makes up for much of this through the art, but I’m honestly looking forward to the English version and hope they’ll still be able to convey the relaxed happy adventurer feeling in the end.
