  1. It has all the standard components of traditional platform titles but disguises them with clever game design, intuitive character interaction, and constant humor.
  2. The main problem that Tak And The Power Of Juju has is persuading gamers that it is not a game aimed merely at a young audience and that there is plenty of challenge here whatever your age.

    Perhaps it's because of the goofy main character, a humorous plot line, or some creative ways to present age old puzzles, but you're compelled to play through Tak. It's fun and incorporates platform collecting in a way that doesn't seem like you're gathering all sorts of items.
  4. The game's got a distinctive look to it, and some good moments, but some tedious collection tasks and exploration elements drag the game down.
  5. If the level design and path finding was a little easy I would be happy to say that this game was brilliant for the kids but in all honesty, I feel even they would get fed up of playing after an hour or so.
  6. 60
    An excellent example of a "slacker" game: it gets as little done as it can while making sure it fills its quota so it can be out the door for the day. There isn't a thing new here and it makes no attempt to improve the genre.
  7. Problematically, it just doesn’t do too anything new and doesn’t space itself out from the crowd. It feels like you’ve played this game before and you probably have - in better, more interesting forms.

    I love this game. I love the quirky humor of it. The graphics are astounding. I only wish it were for more players. The gameplay is pretty good.

    Chickens- those stupid chicken levels. What were they thinking! I made an omlet out of this game and it gave me indigestion!
