Chuchel is the latest adventure game from the masterminds behind games like Botanicula, Samorost 3, and Machinarium, and we reckon it's a very charming, silly title for everyone to enjoy.
But what do we know? We're just some fools running a website about mobile games. So we decided to give our community of mobile gaming fanatics, the App Army, their hands on the game as well.
You can read their reviews below, but we know what you really want - your own chance of getting the best and latest games for absolutely naught beyond giving us a review.
Well you can! Just join our App Army over on Facebook (make sure to answer the short questions given to you!) and each week you'll have a shot at playing a big game of that week.
And better yet, you can chat about mobile games with other fans of the platform, make some friends, and get some wonderful, stimulating conversation in your life.
Sound good? Then go join the App Army! And come right back to read the reviews of Chuchel!
Chuchel is like a zany Saturday morning cartoon TV series from another planet. Made up of 30 episodes, the game doesn't have a real story, unlike the other Amanita Design offerings. What it has are tons of fun, heart-warming, funny moments that'll make you laugh out loud.
Gameplay-wise, it mixes adventure elements with arcade elements, but even the arcade sequences are still puzzles, because they borrow from gaming staples like Tetris, Pac Man, Helicopter Cave etc., changing them in new and head-scratching ways.
I liked the animations and the humor, but I wasn’t sold on some control choices (they make the arcade sequences harder than they should be). All in all, a fun game that I'll probably complete by the end of the weekend (I went through the first ten levels in about 80 minutes, taking my time to discover as many funny animations as possible).
I think it's a good game to introduce kids to adventure gaming, perfectly suited to be played by the kid while the parent looks, laughs, and eventually helps with the harder puzzles.
