  1. Oozing with charm and held together with love, you will be hard pushed to find a better puzzler across all platforms.
  2. Two Tribes have really outdone themselves.
  3. It's deceptively tricky, hiding a razor-sharp puzzle game beneath its cutesy exterior, but it's the sort of intuitive and methodical difficulty that won't scare your mum.
  4. The game lacks real character, but it also brings an almost childish enthusiasm to the player that makes up for it.
  5. Regardless of length, the game provides for a satisfying experience while it lasts, with puzzles neither seeming too hard or too easy. Fans of puzzle games in general, and particularly those in the vein of Capcom's Zack & Wiki, won't regret picking this one up.

    At first glance this game may seem tilted at a younger audience, with its cutesy-style graphics, but don’t let this exterior fool you, as your brain will come close to melting point with some of the levels.
  7. Fans of titles like The Humans or Lemmings will enjoy Toki Tori. But be aware: Solving riddles can cause severe addiction!
  8. 80
    This action puzzler holds up extremely well in the move from old-school portable to new-school console.
  9. It may have slipped under the radar before, but now is the perfect time to give this unique game the second chance it deserves. Don’t miss out.
  10. Toki Tori is a quality title with hours of entertainment for those interested in IQ-testing puzzles. It is also a solid step for WiiWare, which seems to be delivering almost as many quality titles as the Wii itself.
  11. Toki Tori is a fun and challenging WiiWare puzzle game. Its cute graphics, simple control scheme, good difficulty curve, and challenging gameplay will keep kids and adults alike amused for hours.
  12. Its greatest asset is the expert level design, which provides a fair yet challenging difficulty curve and that rare one-more-go addictiveness. [Aug 2008, p.119]
  13. Toki Tori is one of the first titles to grace Nintendos new Wii-channel WiiWare and it’s a game that blends together platforming with fun and intuitive puzzle solving. Although it’s a bit lacking in variation, it’s a great game for the target audience. If overly cute games is your thing Toki Tori will be right up your alley.
  14. Better than most disc-based Wii puzzlers, for a quarter of the price. [Sept 2008, p.84]
  15. As simple as Toki Tori is, its cheerful presentation coupled with a well thought out difficulty curve make for a puzzle-platforming treat that is more than the sum of its parts.
  16. Ideal for dip-in, dip-out puzzling play, but with the smarts to outlast many other titles. [Aug 2008, p.74]
  17. A great little puzzler that will test your grey matter and your patience. [Issue#24, p.27]
  18. 75
    With around 70 levels to play through, both fun and challenging gameplay, and appealing visuals and sound, Toki Tori is a worthy addition in any puzzle game fans’ collection.
  19. It's perhaps a little easy for experienced gamers, but younger players should have a good time playing it. [July 2008, p.103]
  20. Toki Tori is a good puzzle game, reminiscent of classics like The Humans, Fury of the Furries, Lemmings and Lost Vikings.
