    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.

    One of the most underrated games ever and it didn't get a good advertisement. I didn't know it existed until it was free on Epic Games Store.

    I LOVE this game! I've never maintained a smile on my face for more than 5 minutes but I was so happy the entire time playing this game. It'sI LOVE this game! I've never maintained a smile on my face for more than 5 minutes but I was so happy the entire time playing this game. It's funny charming and silly at every single frame. The soundtrack is bright and bubbly. The characters are charming and lovable. The controls are a bit strange but I assure you that you won't even notice. If you think you'll like this game, you will. My one and ONLY complaint, is how short it is, but that just goes to show how wonderful this game is. Expand

    This was a great little game it took me 5 hours to complete the story and co-op. Great little indie game.

Ele brilha mais forte quando não tem medo de ser naturalmente estranho, mas por vezes tenta demais fabricar uma estranheza que não lhe pertence. Expand

    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

    It's a nice simple 2D platformer. Nothing ground-breaking really. If you enjoy platformers, you'll enjoy this.
