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.



UPDATE: While my experience of the game has not changed, I've (reluctantly) lowered my review of the application in response to not being able to play it on my iPad 2. This is my first experience of purchasing an app that I've been locked out of because it evolved further than my hardware can upgrade; usually, applications have permitted me to keep my older version of the software.
Again, the game itself is lovely; I simply cannot play it now.

I'd like to quote the exquisite review of Tengami gamer Peter Maurer in my attempt to summarize Tengami:
"It's a video gaming equivalent of wandering a meadow in a national park, or hiking some miles along a coastline."
This game is really for those of us who take time out of each day to appreciate the beauty in the natural world. It's like a storybook setting, made up of beautifully illustrated flip pages of attractive, interactive scenery.
I love it.

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.
