    Chuchel is Amanita’s crown jewel. The game moved me, but it had nothing to do with its story. My emotions arose from the sense of experiencing something pure, true and delightful. [05/2018, p.62]

    Chuchel is the accomplishment of an artistic process started fifteen years ago, and fully matured with this extraordinary visual and interactive experience.

    After Wiley E. Coyote and Scrat, Chuchel becomes the new legend of the unsung hero fighting to gain his favorite treat. Spirited, welcoming, funny and wondrous, Chuchel is the ideal gateway game for a non gamer, an amazing family experience, a dreamy date night and a deviously inducing smile maker for the face of any gamer.

    CHUCHEL aims to be a mostly comedic turn for Amanita Design and succeeds due to a winning combination of idiosyncratic aesthetic choices and streamlined point-and-click mechanics.

    Chuchel is very easy to play and lasts a couple of evening at best, but you will enjoy every minute of this beautiful, good-hearted game.

    Joyful and surprising, even when you're cracking open an anthropomorphised egg.

    Chuchel’s overt humor and slick animations will make for an entertaining few hours but its simple puzzles and throwaway mini-games fail to ensnare deep imagination.

    Just take it for what it is: a funny interactive cartoon where you click on stuff to see funny scenes and animations.

    Just take it for what it is: a funny interactive cartoon where you click on stuff to see funny scenes and animations.

    Pros:
    - fantastic art. I really like this artist, all the games they've done, starting with Machinarium. All of the Amanita Design games deserve to be preserved for history
    - humor is actually great! I can understand that some people like dark and sad things but there are days when you'd enjoy playing something light-hearted. And this game doesn't take itself serously
    - thankfully, there are no weird illogical puzzles so typical for adventure games, so, unlike Machinarium, at least you can complete it and enjoy the humor without looking into a walkthrough or mindlessly hunting for pixels.

    So-so:
    - music. Yes, it's fitting for the humorous context but you wouldn't want to keep it as a soundtrack. Just compare that with Machinarium soundtrack which I've been listening to for years while working. But I'm not complaining and actually i don't know if a humor-centered game could have a soundtrack which you'd listen to for years after..

    Cons:
    - NONE!

And it get's funnier when played thoroughly. I guess I can say it's a great game, even if the hero is a dust bunny on legs. Expand

Puzzles are simplistic for the most part which is good because it keeps the ride going. It's music and tone remind me a lot of Rayman Legends. The whole premise is that you are chasing around a cherry that keeps being taken away from you. Characters and environments you encounter are truly bizarre and the logic is very cartoonish but that doesn't get in the way of solving puzzles since really you could just click through every option and eventually realize the solution. It is only about two hours so beware of that. Expand
