    This is another gentle, feel-good indie release that provides a most enjoyable alternative to blasting people or taking in a high definition sports match.

    Humorous, innovative and brave. This is Doki-Doki Universe, a digital download experiment for Playstation users who like new and irreverent games.

    The idea was making something different, and they have indeed made so. It's one of those games that deserves a try, even though the concept should have been polished to avoid repetitiveness.

    While I applaud the attempt at breaking new ground and enjoyed the imaginative presentation, Doki-Doki Universe ultimately misses the mark when it comes to engaging gameplay.

    Doki-Doki Universe is a really particular indie game that tries to offer something new and unique, but is stopped by the lack of depth of its gameplay mechanics.

    A charming adventure/ puzzle game that suffers from the "DLC syndrome", repetition and some major bugs.

I really wanted to give this game a good score. I really did. I was originally planning to give this game an 8, for sheer creativity. However, sheer creativity does not excuse some of the worst optimization I've ever seen in a single game, much less a 2-D one. For example, if you have more than 2-3 large objects on the screen at one time, the frame rate drops sharply. It feels more like a slideshow than a game.

    Along with that, the game has a horrible tendency to crash. A lot. For some people, this was never an issue. For others, it crashed every fifteen minutes or so. Not actually exaggerating on that one. I timed it. Ultimately, it's up to you, but there are far better "interesting" games out there that have better optimization.
