    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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Overall, Toki Tori is an absolutely brilliant puzzler with great graphics and even greater puzzles to solve.
  5. For this price, a real puzzle fanatic can't ignore Toki Tori. There are more than enough puzzles, including a large number of real brain breakers, and the game gives the player the time to think and experiment towards a solution. Anyone who did not get a chance to meet the yellow chicken yet, this PC version of Toki Tori is the right time to do so.
  6. 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.
  7. Toki Tori couldn't motivate me to play it for more than a couple hours. A multiplayer mode like in New Super Mario Bros. Wii would make it a lot more exciting.
  8. Incredible value. [May 2010, p.85]
  9. 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]
  10. Tough but satisfying, and made all the more enjoyable by the cute presentation. [Issue#31, p.53]

    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 :) Full Review »

    Toki Tori tries to sell itself as a Platformer that plays like a Puzzle game, in which it ultimately fails at being either of these, make it in a bland, repetitive waste of money. Full Review »

    It's got a neat idea to it, and I'd love to see the gameplay handled by some more competent people, but overall Toki Tori is an annoying, infuriating mess brought down by sync issues, hitbox issues, and weird AI behavior that can cause you to have to constantly restart a level because something isn't behaving the way the game wants it to.
