Simple but lovely arcade game feels like a work of art.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

Poppi is very easy to play. You merely need to swipe to knock two similar shapes into one another. It gets more difficult gradually as the pace increases, so it does eventually become more challenging.

QUALITY

A rain of abstract shapes showers down the screen in POPPI, and players must give each a flick to keep it from falling out of sight. As players juggle these colorful shapes, they aim to have similar ones bump each other and thereby disappear. It's a simple concept, great for casual gamers. The graphics are lovely, but the game is made even more artsy by its sound: Different shapes make different musical tones when they bump one another, so by juggling these shapes around and bouncing them into each other, you end up, in essence, creating a soundtrack for the game.
