Puzzle games have been quite popular lately for the sharp challenges they offer. Perfect for gaming on the go, they aim to tease our brains, make us think a lot, and provide an experience that is glorious to say the least. Kami 2 by the Developers State of Play is the latest on the puzzle series, and it doesn’t get any better than that!
Let’s kick off things by breaking down the game for you. The game is all about recoloring intricate paper designs. Each level features a paper canvas of differently placed triangles. Choose a color and tap on the area to make it that color. What you have got to do is choose a color and tap on the area to make it that color in limited moves. When you tap a section of paper, it unfolds and dramatically spreads over the area. It’s therapeutic to say the least.
Initially the game is pretty simple but as you have limited moves, after 3rd, 4th level, you need to scratch your head a lot. Aim to join up the portions of one color using the minimum moves, and you will be good. You can get hints once you feel stuck and lost but the hints are limited too and you need to buy them once you have used the free ones.
So, what makes it different from its predecessor KAMI? Nothing, to be honest. The game only offers more content in the form of over 100 levels in the journey mode and offers edit mode where you can create your own puzzles and share them with your friends. But wait! That’s not it. You have a selection of daily challenges too so you never run out of levels in this brain teaser. Winning levels will get you Perfect Badges which will enable you to unlock new levels and medals.
Talking about the graphics, the geometry of the game looks great to me. It’s not over the top, and it’s pleasant to the eyes. Moreover, the crumpling sound of the paper after you finish each level is oddly satisfying too.
What grinds Kami 2 down is that the hints you get are too few, and once you are stuck at a level, there’s no going back, so you have to put the phone down in frustration and rethink later. Another thing that can get on your nerves is the lack of undo button, so if you want to reverse a move, you will have to start all over again. Not very pleasant to hear, right?
Apart from the glitches I mentioned above, the game is too mesmerizing and addictive. Once you start playing, you will hardly want to put your phone down. In a nut shell, Kami 2 is a fantastic follow-up and it only adds to the beauty its first part was, and it is more than just a pretty game. Get your hands on the game by clicking Google Play Store as it’s definitely worth a look.
