I have noticed a trend over the last few years. Video games have been
sliding down that slope to being more radical and more liberal. You know
where all kinds of things are permissible, except Christians are
persecuted. They preach tolerance of diversity, and attack those who
think diversely from themselves. Yah I was raised to think for myself in
a liberally controlled area and saw the horrors first hand.
Why talk about any of that? This is where KOI comes in. A game based on a fish in a pond is cool. KOI adds in eastern religious themes and preaches about the dangers of pollution. How much pollution comes from major metropolitan areas? Seems to me cities are one of the huge issues the anti-pollution crowd ignore. How much pollution comes from servers and video game systems? To faithfully follow the lesson in KOI gamers would need to quit using video game systems, quit downloading games, and quit purchasing video games.
There are only nine levels in KOI. I actually was thankful of that because the game play in KOI was getting boring and repetitive. Find a fish, and take it to a flower that is the same color. So the red fish to the red flower, yellow fish to yellow flower, etc. Once we get to the flower we press 'O'. That makes the flower bloom and give us white orbs. We also have to avoid the black fish because they will harm us and take away our color and ability to move at a decent speed.
The music in KOI can be soothing. Some of it just annoyed me. I liked collecting stars and jigsaw puzzle pieces in KOI. It is the only reason to replay the handful of levels in this downloadable only home console video game. The memory puzzles irritated me to no end. They broke up the action a bit since I was stuck on them for so long. There was no way to make them easier.
The menu screens in KOI confounded and confused me. The images made little sense to me. I had to use trial and error to figure out where things were. Certain parts of KOI are explained, and others are not. I was confused about what to do in a few areas. Like when the black fish kept attacking and there were all these dead white fish in the pond. I finally got hit enough times to progress. I am also baffled as to why these simple fish are out in space at the end of the game. If there is some message there I did not get it.
