Tengami is an interesting experience on the Wii U. It is sort of a
puzzle game since we have to find the series of events to progress to
the next screen. Maybe we have to find an item, or play the wind chimes
in the right order. Whatever it is, we have to figure out what to do to
move to the next area.
The most interesting thing about Tengami is not what we do. It is how this downloadable only home console video game is presented. In an arts and crafts pop up book style. So we swipe the Wii U Gamepad to turn the page. Or we swipe to open a door.
Nyamyam is really nice to players by having a little hint available. Most of them are very helpful. I did get stuck in places and the hint was no assistance whatsoever. Like find the big bell was the hint. I found it, turned to winter, and got the piece over the frozen river. Then what? The hint again said find the big bell. My frustration grew as I could not figure out what to do.
Families need to be aware of a few things concerning Tengami. This entire world is based on ancient dark fairy tales of Japan. There is an Eastern theme to the visuals and sounds in Tengami. Depending on your background you may interpret cultural content within Tengami as religious in nature.
The graphics are a bit on the small side. The music can be a bit moody at times. It took me forever to figure out I had to tap where I wanted to go. I kept trying to use the joystick to move my little in game guy. Tengami is different from anything else I have ever experienced within a video game. I do like bringing blooms back to the tree. That was neat.
