Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that To-Fu: The Trials of Chi HD is a puzzle game that features To-Fu, a cartoon character made of tofu. Players touch the screen to squeeze and stretch out To-Fu in such a way that he springs from wall-to-wall while collecting stars and avoiding a variety of hazards -- buzz saws, spikes, lasers, etc. It is possible for To-Fu to collide with the hazards, which makes him fall off the screen. However, this is neither encouraged nor graphically depicted.
Is it any good?
TO-FU: THE TRIALS OF CHI HD is unique because it stars a tofu character. Not a lot of games can say that. It also has a neat, inviting visual style with crisp and colorful graphics. Those factors make it a fun game to play. However, after a while, it becomes a bit stale since the gameplay is the same thing over and over again. And while some of the levels are genuinely challenging and require a lot of thinking and trial-and-error, most are uninspired and allow players to breeze right through. In the end, it is a run-of-the-mill casual gaming app that players will no doubt find fun for a while but grow tired of quickly.
