Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Poppi is an artsy arcade game in which players eliminate falling shapes by knocking them into their matching counterparts. It's not hard to learn and can become quite enthralling. It's also very beautiful in both its visuals and its sound design.
Is it any good?
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.
