  • Summary: In the puzzle game Potpourrii, everything revolves around the seasons. For centuries, the seasons have followed a set pattern. But then things start to go awry in the forest. Suddenly it's snowing while the sun shines and flowers bloom while leaves are falling. Then a strange purple goo appears. The leprechauns are stunned. Even worse, the magic oak of life loses its power. It all turns out to be the fault of an evil wizard. You must help the leprechauns defeat him and restore natural order. To do this, you need to collect seasonal spirits. Pick them up with the spirit cannon, shoot them at the center of the screen, group them and make them disappear. But watch out-they get faster and faster. In short: Potpourrii is a puzzle game that keeps you hooked with its colorful visuals, beautiful effects and easy-to-use controls using the Wii Remote controller. Play alone or with a second player, and even use your Mii character. [Nintendo] Expand

  1. Abstraction's first published game is definitely there in terms of gameplay.
  2. 50
    I'll give Abstraction Games props for trying a new idea for a familiar genre, but I'm sorry to say that this game just doesn't have the addictive quality to grab gamers like true classic action puzzlers do.
  3. The game trundles along at far too slow a pace and lacks any real sense of challenge. Puzzle titles need a ‘killer hook’ in order to stand out from the crowd and as much as it pains us to say this, Potpourri is sadly lacking in this regard.
  4. With its classical soundtrack and pastel shades, Potpourri is certainly pleasant and undemanding gamers may find its soporific style quite charming. As a game demanding 800 of your valuable Wii Points, however, it's a rather slim offering.
  5. It's just a nice idea that doesn't work very well. [Dec 2008, p.98]
  6. A game that somehow manages to be incredibly offensive by being so bland and inoffensive that you want to rip its beating heart right out. [Dec 2008, p.78]
