    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.

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

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

    la música ahhh es buenísima, pegadiza y movida, realmente me encantó muchísimo
    el final lo sentí algo flojo pues realmente siento que pudo ser un mejor final, y creo que sería interesante ser una segunda entrega del juego con más personajes y una trama que explore otros temas, pero habrá que esperar unos años más
    valió la pena comprarlo? yo creo que sí. tal vez no sea un juego del todo innovador o el mejor del año, pero sí siento que es disfrutable, aparte que no dura más de diez horas y se puede terminar en un día fácilmente, además que los minijuegos dentro de este no requieren de tanta lógica o concentración, es un juego tranquilo

    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

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.
