  • Summary: Strategy line defender game. Japanese Universe.

    A legend handed down through the ages says that the Cocoro Islands were created by the god Perfect. He breathed his spirit into them and, through his will alone, each one received a founding entity. These founding entities had extraordinary
    powers that were to be used for the good of Cocoro; the Yoko were their protectors. And that is the incredible story were going to tell you...

    Cocoro is a strategy game where you control the "Yoko" of each of the four elements. In this typically Asiatic game world, you must unlock heroes with different characteristics and an array of weapons you can upgrade throughout the battles.

    Fun and involving enough to be compelling, Cocoro - Line Defender's only obstacles are its repetitiveness which gets excessive at some points and its unbalanced difficulty level. If these issues were addressed, this would be a fine strategy for Nintendo's handheld, as all the other elements attest to that.

    The bottom line is that Cocoro doesn’t do anything that you can’t get from the hundreds of free line defence games on the net. It tries to set itself apart, with a storyline and customisable units, but it all rings a little hollow.

    The price point is low enough that big fans of simple mobile strategy games may find something here, but otherwise you may want to skip this Line.

    Cocoro is a difficult line defence title that might turn a lot of people away from it because the sheer difficulty doesn't gel with the art style.

    Well-designed characters and some neat ideas are wasted on a slightly wonky tower-defence game.

    A thin game that became repetitive pretty soon. Besides its good art direction and the price, Cocoro Line Defender is not really appealing, even for the hardcore fans of the genre.

    If Cocoro Line Defender featured units with a lot of unique abilities that were available immediately, I would probably be writing a very different review. However, as it stands, every battle is determined by how closely you can fling your units together on the battlefield.
