    Anarcute is one of the most adorable games you will find this year. Great mechanics, simple and fun gameplay and a music selection that almost everyone will love, but not as much as you will love the little anarchists that are featured in the game.

    As challenging as it is fun, Anarcute requires tactical thinking and quick reflexes. Anarchy has never been this adorable.

    Anarcute will put you in a good mood through its happy art design and music. The strategy gameplay is simple, but still fun, while providing a decent difficulty curve along the way.

    Anarcute is a warm and fuzzy, utterly adorable game that plays with mob violence and social unrest.

    Anarcute is easy to learn, but difficult enough to require some effort also from experienced players. Don't be distracted by the cuteness of its heroes, the revolution is coming!

    Considering that this is the first title of Anarteam and that this was first born as a school assignment of 5 students, this is a more than decent start.

    Many games, largely, want to create mayhem where messages may also occur, while protests, largely, want to create messages where mayhem may also occur. Anarcute wants an adorable inferno. The joke is that the destruction is big but the perps are cutie wuties. But I don’t know if I have the planet to play it on.

    Anarcute isn't bad by any means. It's an interesting puzzle game with an appealing aesthetic and good music.

    However, it's banking a bit too hard on the indie-factor in order to pass by sensors that games like Katamari Damacy get a pass on due to innovation.

    The controls at tight, but the fact you're attempting to control masses of one-hit-wonders leaves any sense of skill behind when trying to dodge snipers as a stray kitten steps just a bit out of line. It's like playing a combination of Kirby Mass Attack and attempting to zerg rush everything you come across.

    The overall mechanics (i.e. Get Bigger, Do More) suffer accordingly.

    The puzzle element is overly simplistic, instead relying on the game's aesthetic to distract you from the fact that any given puzzles are little more than "square peg goes into square hole"

    Cute and anarchy. Two things that never went together until now. Anarcute is a fun little game - for a short burst. It's quite repetitiveCute and anarchy. Two things that never went together until now. Anarcute is a fun little game - for a short burst. It's quite repetitive however so you'll likely get bored after an hour or two. The cute graphics and characters will appeal to some however. Expand
