A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that the cuteness of Toki Tori is not meant in any ironic or satirical way (as adorable characters in app games often are). This is a genuinely cute, family-friendly puzzle adventure, which requires a lot of analytical thinking, but which can be enjoyed by younger kids as well as by tweens, teens, and adults. Parents and kids can even puzzle their way through cooperatively, talking out the best strategies as they go.
Is it any good?
TOKI TORI is an adorable baby chick adventure. It is also a wonderfully challenging puzzle game. On each level you have to plot the best course -- through a maze of cliffs, platforms, stairs, pits, and sometimes enemies -- in order to pick up all the lost eggs on the level. Many times, there are eggs in places that will get the chick stuck -- and its journey through that level would normally be over. However, an excellent rewind feature lets the player erase any mistakes and simply jump back in time to a point before the goof. Toki Tori is brainy cuteness at its best.
