  • Summary: The gameplay in Toki Tori is a blend of two genres. While it looks like a platform game, it's a puzzle game at heart. To progress through the game, the player must pick up each egg in a level using a set number of tools. Players will have to look and plan ahead carefully while using items such as the Telewarp, Freeze-o-Matic and InstantRock. Additional tools are gradually introduced as the player progresses through the game's 80+ levels covering four unique worlds. [Steam] Expand

  1. Overall, Toki Tori is an absolutely brilliant puzzler with great graphics and even greater puzzles to solve.
  2. Toki Tori might be a very sweet looking puzzle game but is despite its looks really hard to master sometimes. It just makes so much fun to find the missing eggs with the chicken, that you won't stop it for a long time.
  3. Incredible value. [May 2010, p.85]
  4. Toki Tori is an amazing mix between a platform game and a puzzle. His vitality is the result of the indie scene and his price will call out you loudly. One of the smarter puzzle games from Lemmings' time.
  5. If you want something to pull for your brain cells and that is both fun, do not think twice. For just € 3.37 will have a demanding game and at the same time a simple one.
  6. 76
    All in all, Toki Tori is a wonderful puzzler, giving you hours of entertainment. Looking for something to play on your netbook or laptop while heading for school, work or friends? Toki Tori is a good choice, especially considering its 4 euro price tag. Also recommended as a Steam present if you have friends that love this genre.
  7. Playing Toki Tori is like putting your finger into a kitten's mouth, only to realise that the kitten is actually a great white shark. Except this is a good thing. [Oct 2010, p.86]

    Toki tori is a perfect game for kids 8 and up. It looks like a platform jumping game, but in reality the levels are neat puzzles. Some levels are quite hard, so you may need to help your kid, but overall it is refreshing to see a good logic game in a world full of dumb clickfests. Expand

    cute puzzle game! great tutorial levels, and the levels gradually increase in difficulty. (some of the later ones were super hard!) the pc version has pretty cool effects too (i also got the android version, not sure if it was because i got it on one of the bundles?). pretty original gameplay concept. i should pick up the second one at some point. definitely check it out if you like puzzle games!

    i don't understand some of the negative reviews below this... the concepts are pretty simple to figure out... and new mechanics are introduced every few levels, so i wouldn't call it repetitive... go back to playing Call of Duty 10?

    When you first see this game, you might get the impression it's more of a child's game, but believe me, it's not! I got this game in a bundle with some other games and had low expectations of it, but actually it turned out to be the best game of the bundle where I already spent over 20 hours in. :) Toki Tori is actually a puzzle game. It's all based on a simple idea, you can walk around and climb ladders, there are x eggs in a room, you have limited items to use, and you got to get all the eggs with those items. Since the gameplay is smooth, with for example a rewind option for if you do something wrong and a fast walking toki (the chicken you control in the game, either by mouse or by keyboard, mouse works really well), it plays nice and is really addicting. The puzzles themselves are good too, they start rather easy, but get harder, yet it still satisfies when you find the solution for them. It satisfies even more when you break a level :) (have items left in a level) And more important, there are more than enough levels, there are almost 100 in the game already! And when you're done with those, which will take you some time since you can be stuck on the hardest levels for hours, there is an active steam community, where another bunch of levels are to download thanks to the level editor! All with all, this is a really fun puzzle game, which every puzzle fan should get, especially because of it's low price :) Expand

    Surprisingly mature and clever gameplay. The only children-directed aspect of this game is the presentation. It's because of that I recommend it especially to families and institutions. The gameplay is for mindful thinkers and tinkerers of all ages. Some levels are very difficult. Expand

    Pretty fun little game - but my interest is fading. I've played 15 hours on Steam where I purchased it on sale for $0.49, and it's well worth that. I like that it doesn't require rapid reflexes to solve most puzzles. It really is mostly a puzzle game - where you have to plan out all your steps and resource use in advance. Lots of trial and error with a helpful "rewind" button for when you mess up. One of the harder levels I couldn't do because of timing (ex: I knew what to do, but couldn't execute fast enough - I'm on a keyboard and mouse) - but 95% of the time actions are not dependent on quick timing. I'm on the "Bubbles" levels now and am probably close to quiting as they're pretty hard and getting to be more frustrating than fun (when you have to google regularly to find the solution it ceases to be fun imho). I still give this a 6 as I enjoyed it alot up to now. Definitely worth it on sale, and enjoyed the early worlds alot. Some of the "Hard" levels will be exactly that - and don't be surprised if you get to the point like me where the difficulty outreaches your interest. The first 3 worlds are a definite 7, but I ground to a halt at the Bubbles level and not sure I'll finish - so lowering score to 6. Expand

    Pretty bland and boring, honestly. The puzzles get ridiculous in a hurry, and require you to use the given tools in the precise manner the developers intended, effectively eliminating any possibility of player creativity. The worst part of the game, however, is the color scheme. When you play for 30 minutes or more and then quit the game, you will immediately notice a strange impression it has left in your eyes with its bright, neon colors as you seemingly view the world with a yellowish-green pair of glasses.

    I tried the demo, and first three lvls were confusing but I could pass them. Next lvl was imposible, the demo game doesn't even say what to do and more important:how. If you want to sell a product you must make it funny and not hard and brainbraking, Expand
