    It's impossible not to love Pikuniku, but now I want some more.

    It would have been nice if Pikuniku was longer and had a bit more to its story, if only because it means spending more time with its interesting and charming world. Still, what we have is a fun blend of physics-based gameplay, traditional platforming, exploration, eye-catching art and a fun cast that makes for one cute, highly-enjoyable experience. It’s a quick little romp through a gleefully bizarre world that you won’t regret checking out.

    Pikuniku is a fun puzzle game based in a fascinating dystopian world. It’s look and feel gives it a charming aesthetic that draws you in, and its solid controls coupled with balanced puzzles makes you stay a while.

    A wonderfully absurd tale of insurrection and kicking stuff in a cheery-looking world.

    Pikuniku is quirky, funny and more than a little bit mad, all adding up to a short-but-sweet, colourful platform adventure.

    Pikuniku is a relaxing action-puzzle game with a good sense of humor. The interesting mixture of cute visuals and a dystopian world is worth a look.

    Its absurdity, alongside occasional quips do end up pulling their weight, but it’s not enough to save Piku’s journey from being inoffensive and simply forgettable.

    Pikuniku is an adventure from start to finish, even if it only takes a couple hours to get to the finish. Although the game is short, thePikuniku is an adventure from start to finish, even if it only takes a couple hours to get to the finish. Although the game is short, the content that is there is interesting and fun. The gameplay is centered around simple physics based platforming that stays fresh until the end. The story is decent enough, but a little too simplistic. Puzzles are fairly simple as well, I never spent more than a few minutes to get through each one. I'd say the best part of the game is the art style and music that carries the game through the simple controls. If you have a few hours to kill, then this is the perfect game to keep you engaged and make the time fly by. Expand

    the game is fun and the game-play is sample and rarely you will get boring but the big problem is that the game will take you 3 hours tothe game is fun and the game-play is sample and rarely you will get boring but the big problem is that the game will take you 3 hours to finish it (story mode). And with co-op i think only for first time you will get fun time but thin the game will be boring because there are only 9 stages (co-op). Expand

It has pretty solid physics based platforming and puzzle solving with some little mini games and bosses here and there. It has some pretty okay writing, although I can't say I found the humour very funny. It's got a decent cast of characters and has a nice variety of areas to explore. It also however has an outrageously high asking price for the game, and the actually story does nothing except the bare minimum. It doesn't utilise any of its characters or plot elements in ways you wouldn't expect and the story is extremely linear and predictable. The game is also barely 2 hours long and abruptly ends out of no where, leaving you with a a large empty open world afterwards. I enjoyed the game, but if I knew how much I would enjoy it I wouldn't have paid for it. I can't recommend this game based on price. Maybe pick it up on sale if you're really itching to try it.

Most of the game is walking, there are probably a dozen or so actual platforming puzzles and all of them are trivial. I was hoping it would get challenging at some point but then it just ended. I got it for free and I still regret the 3.5 hours I spent playing it. Expand
