Despite its cute appearance, KIKO: THE LAST TOTEM is a mind-bendingly difficult puzzle game. The object of the game is to move the cats to color-coded targets. Once a cat starts moving it doesn't stop until it runs into something. On easier levels the targets can be reached fairly simply by running into the edges of the screen and the obstacles. But later levels require you to maneuver some cats to use them as obstacles; figuring out the order to get the cats to their proper places is extremely challenging.

If the 150 levels in three difficulty levels aren't enough, there's also a Level Editor included that allows you to make your own levels and share them with friends. One complaint: you get one to four stars for each level that you complete, depending on how many moves it took to solve the puzzle. But aside from when you first complete the level, you can't look up how many stars you got for any level. Providing an in-game score card would be nice.
